PACA and Alpes-Maritimes Wedding Photographer Lonata Montulé Engrand

Since my childhood, it was the audiovisual or nothing else! So I had already decided on the direction to take for my professional future. Very stubborn and Breton girl (it does not help the stubborn side ;-)), here I am after my BAC towards film studies. In a Higher School of Audiovisual Realization for 3 years, (E.S.R.A). I wanted to become a camera maker in the world of cinema ... after some contracts for films, TV movies, pubs, music videos, etc ... I realized that this world filled with superfluous was not for me. So I went back to my first and true love ... the IMAGE. Since 2009 I work on my own, and I have this incredible luck, to live from my passion that is the PHOTOGRAPHY. For the personal side, I was rather spoiled by life, extraordinary parents, a literary mother and a scientific dad, who gave me the most beautiful gifts well before my birth ... my SUPER and great big sister. I grew up, and also do my nonsense of children in a small village in the hinterland of Nice, the most beautiful village of all the villages !! (I'm chauvinistic? Yes, a little!) So I said the most beautiful of all: Entrevaux. I grew up in the middle of nature with parents also artisans/traders, which allowed me to develop the exchanges and the contact with the people. I am married to my Apollo and mother of the most fantastic little girl in the world !! [Alpes-Maritimes Wedding Photographer]

While some of us were fortunate enough to be born as extroverts, not everyone feels the same way. For a good chunk of the population, any number of the typical wedding day traditions can inspire anxiety and existential dread. This day is all about you, yes, but does that mean all the attention has to be on you as well? FROM VOWS TO CHITCHAT, WHICH REMAINS SACRED? Traditional weddings often require some degree of performance on the part of the couple, whether that is in the form of reciting...Read more

So, in an industry that keeps on going through thick and thin, what are some things to expect for the future, and what is really necessary to still make that wedding day memorable and...Read more

Everyone always says that your wedding day is all about you. But let’s face it; that’s not always actually the case.

Fortunately, though, the concept of small weddings is becoming increasingly popular for couples who either want to be able to completely customize their day where and when they want with the option...Read more

Oftentimes when people are considering a venue for their weddings, they search for a location away from home, whether that be ten minutes or ten hours, all just to find what they already have: a place that holds meaning for them, that feels comfortable, or that they find special and memorable.

Traditionally speaking, often times it is the couple’s families who help pay for their wedding. However, unfortunately that’s just not possible for everyone, especially these days when the cost of weddings can quickly and easily get out of control. Some couples find themselves in the position of paying for all of their own wedding expenses, which can be quite the financial burden to take on, and about 40% of Millennials end up in this boat. So, how can you stick to your allotted...Read more
