PACA and Alpes-Maritimes Elopement and 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]

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
