Haute-Garonne wedding photography by Florent Cattelain of Occitanie, France

For the record, I was 5 years old in my father's photo studio. One could say that my vocation was all found. Very small the first time I developed photos B & W with him I exclaimed "Wow, it's magic, I want to do it as a job! " To see an image appear softly on white paper was incredible. However, I followed web and cinema studies that brought me a visual and graphic baggage and I finally returned to my first love and I'm a photographer since 2011.

Haute-Garonne and Toulouse wedding elopement photography by Jean-Luc Legros, of Occitanie, France

As far as I can remember, I think I have always observed and photographed people. I fell in love with the creative photojournalism style in 2016, when discovering the work of Victor Lax and later by having workshops with Sebastien Roignant, Franck Boutonnet, Victor and Erika Lax. I discovered that wedding photography could be something so extraordinary for couples. I discovered my type of photography. Since then, I have worked enormously and progressed to reach an international level. For me, being a photographer means progressing every day. Every year, I add something new to my services, like the "photo-clip" of your story for 2020. I am a real passionate who loves his brides and grooms and makes it a very strong condition before any collaboration. I've been covering weddings through the south of France and Paris since the end of 2016. I'm based in Toulouse, southwest of France and ready to travel anywhere, where love will need my artistic sense. [Toulouse Wedding Photographer]
