Drôme wedding photographer Lucie Mahé of Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, France

Beaux-Arts training with specialty academic drawing, my artistic approach, whatever the field, has always been in curiosity and meeting. After many professional years as a freelance graphic artist-photographer for the cultural and institutional sector, a couple confidently entrusted me to shoot their wedding, and it is after this union that the real click for the wedding photography is born! Weddings offer me an immense possibility of creation, everything is movement, everything is about to tell a story and to capture the moment that will not happen again. It's a photography of shared emotions, authentic moments and that's what I've always been looking for ... Professional since 2009, the conception of my work and the human dimension of weddings, led me to specialize in the photography of this unique event. [Drôme Wedding Photographer]

Drôme wedding photography by Aurelie Lamour of Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes - France

Outside of addictive kissing and baking workshops with my daughters. I made the choice to place photography at the center of my daily life, with the annoying habit of capturing under my lens my family that I love so much. Eloise and Adèle, my small primitive beings often lend themselves to the game, thus helping me to perfect my vision of (extra) ordinary everyday life while retaining my qualities of discretion. Need connection with nature and time in love, I spend hours soaking up it during wild hikes during which I try to capture light, a perfume, a universe, with all my senses, this time without a camera. Handball player, between two gourmet breaks, I invest myself in life and like to show it as it is, in its essence, its truth, without detours or artifices. My sensitivity as a professional photographer finds as much meaning and pleasure in doing a family photo shoot or a wedding report as in creating a gourmet environment for a culinary photo shoot or sculpting the light in the studio. All these photographic fields are inspiring and so enriching for me. [Drôme Wedding Photographer]

 Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Wedding photographer Charlène Aubert

Charlène, 36 years old ... I am married and have 3 children. I like to spend my Sundays with family around board games or joint activities. I like to travel in backpack mode, and open-mindedness is for me an important quality. I am close to nature, vegetarian, we try the adventure zero-waste family. I try to be as green as possible. I like Do It Yourself and artistic activities, of course, the photo is part of it. Take my children in the photo, capture this little pout that makes me crack, those glances together between brothers and sister, the laughter endlessly ... All these things that I want to remember for me, for them. My grandfather was an amateur photographer, he was the one who filled our family albums between cousins ​​every holiday at home. Every holiday I took (and still take!) Pleasure to leaf through our albums he prepared and discover old family photos in old boxes! Without him, we would have a few pictures. Unfortunately, I have little of me with my parents or my sister and it is a huge regret. The few photos I have are very valuable. Portraits are good, but family life with our parents on it and being able to remember them, our relationships, what we were doing together at that time is invaluable.
