Studio portrait of Tours wedding photographer Ivan Franchet of Indre-et-Loire Centre-Val de Loire France

Photographer for 12 years, this incredible profession makes me enter your lives in the most beautiful way. I specialize in wedding reporting, but also in family photography, to tell stories… How do I approach my reports? … A unique credo; Happiness, a great zest sensitivity, and energy to spare! Together we will enjoy it! My wife and my 13-year-old daughters follow me in this universe with a lot of conviction and they know my love for photography. My loved ones describe me as an idealist, a dreamer and I have recently understood that I will remain the same. My pleasure is to share, to give, to make this happiness that people live through my photos. I have no ego, only the desire to provoke emotions and to capture them. Long before when I was a child, my dad, an amateur photographer, taught me the basics of photography. Framing and light were his golden rules. I was fascinated by the magic and the timelessness that a photo offered. Then, cinema became a passion. I abandoned the photo for almost 25 years and during the meeting with the one who would become my wife, it became obvious again, a need to give, to share through my eyes. I only enjoyed taking pictures of people on the street, or these little scenes of life that I lived. I still regret not being as avant-garde or technical as the new generation, but no, I like this feeling of finding myself in touch with the reality of light, its intrinsic beauty and the effort that this requires us to optimize what we see. “I consider myself a storyteller, documenting your life with sensitivity and authenticity.” [Tours Wedding Photographer]

Indre-et-Loire wedding photography by Juliette Frederix of Centre-Val de Loire, France

I'm Juliette, I was born in Paris in 1981, and I'm a wedding photographer and engineer. As far as I can remember, I have always had a camera in my hands, and an insatiable desire to photograph each important moment experienced, each emotion, each smile. Computer training I have gradually since 2005 transformed what was a vital passion for professional activity, always obsessed with this need to immortalize important moments, joys, expressions. Real-life in short. And what could be better than marriage to observe them? Some people don't like weddings, which are too long, too formal. In any case, I love it! They are the most beautiful transcription of love and emotions. And my goal is to capture them at every moment of this day which is always going at a crazy pace. These images will be your forever intact memory, and I am happy to contribute to them. [Indre-et-Loire 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.

Traditional weddings often require some degree of performance on the part of the couple, whether that is in the form of reciting...Read more
