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]

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
