5 Documentary Wedding Photographers...

A few years back, I was already an established landscape photographer when my cousin asked me to photograph her wedding. When I do things, I'm 100% committed. My first move was to read tons of articles about wedding photography and to go through hundreds of images to get a grasp of what to do and what not to do. I was highly influenced by the great Tyler Wirken and his journalistic approach. On top of learning a few tricks from his blog, I also bought the right gear, a 35mm prime lense. The smile on my cousin's face when she saw her photos was so rewarding that I decided to shoot more weddings and soon after it became a full-time job. Over the years, I have developed my ability to be at the right place at the right time, by anticipating every moment of a wedding. This helps me to capture all the emotions going on on the big day. Shooting weddings has had a great influence on my approach to photography and my personal life. I now apply the same principles when I take pictures of my own baby-girls: my wife is so grateful to have souvenirs of these candid family moments. This is why I take so much pride in documenting weddings, because I know how important these moments are for the bride and groom. [Luxembourg Wedding Photographer]

France wedding and elopement photography by Lucille Gaumard for Grand Est, Moselle and Metz

Hello, it's me, Lucille! I am 32 but feel like I was 10 yesterday! I grew up in the Paris area, travelled abroad for studies and work before settling in the eastern part of France near Luxembourg. I love my little city of Metz where I enjoy life's little pleasures such as a drink at a terrace, exhibitions, and concerts. I started photography during family gatherings and fell in love with documentary photography. A never dreamed of a fairy tale wedding for myself, so I never thought of a career as a wedding photographer! One day I photographed a friends' wedding and discovered it was such an exciting playground for a photographer. I love sharing this special day with you, capturing all these little moments and offer you timeless memories. [Metz Wedding Photographer]

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]

Why limit yourself to a quiet, quaint ceremony when your adventurous heart may be calling out for something more? An entirely different genre of wedding, so to speak, is the adventure wedding elopement. This concept...Read more
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

We all know that the economy can go through some hard times, and be somewhat reminiscent of past recessions.

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
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
