Ia orana!

Caroline Tongourian, Photographer in Bora Bora

I’m Caro!

I am a photographer in Bora Bora and I have always been passionate by image, photography and light. When I was young, I used to make cardboard cameras with toilet paper rolls as a lens.

When I arrived in Polynesia a dozen years ago, I was instantly captivated by the beauty of the scenery and landscapes, the incredible colors of Bora Bora lagoon and the lush vegetation. I spent my free time photographing everything : the nature, my family, my friends, the local culture. For the last fifteen years, I have been developing skills to be able to finally live off my passion. And I specialized in couples and family photography.

My philosophy

The perfect shot is when I feel butterflies in my belly, this magic moment that makes us feel the emotion of the moment through a look, a smile. Capturing the moment on the spot, feeling the authenticity of the emotion. Telling a story through images, is what makes me push the camera button.

French Polynesia is usually the trip of a lifetime, memories of it must be unforgettable so you can immerse yourself in it and relive it over and over again indefinitely.

I want to enhance your memories, capture your complicity, your laughter, your love and make them even more sublime than they already are!

I am discreet and a good observant. I like humor, authenticity and I’ll make you feel comfortable. My goal is to translate your moments with simplicity and sincerity.
