David Page is a wedding and elopement photojournalist now in the Limousin region of France

I am a British born wedding photojournalist now living in the Aquitaine region of France with my wife and young family. A professional photographer since 2002. My original passion in photography was for black and white fine art images and I do still continue to exhibit my fine art work here in France. My work then progressed to portrait photography and I was always drawn to the natural, real image of a person not posed and formal but something that really showed a persons character. My portrait style and client contacts then took me into the world of wedding photography. I just continued taking photographs as I saw the moments unfold on the wedding day. My clients liked the informal and discrete way that I photographed the weddings and the results were well received. I personally took a great deal of pleasure from those first few weddings, what better event for a photographer to capture a wealth of emotions, the spectacle, the excitement, the romance, the fun and the glamour? I love the wedding photography here in France. Every wedding is unique, individual in its character and emotions and it is immensely satisfying for me as a photographer to have the privilege to be a part of the day and to write that special story in images. It is amazing for me to think that the images I take will be there acting as a memory of a truly unique and special day for the Bride and Groom for so many years to come. France the land of love and romance. [Lot-et-Garonne Wedding Photographer]

Damien Dohmen is a wedding photographer for Nouvelle-Aquitaine and Pyrénées-Atlantiques

I have been a photographer for 5 years now. Before that, I was in charge of HR in a big corporate business; photography at first was a way to let out some steam, it was a very demanding job requiring a lot of letting go. At first, I was shooting exclusively empty landscapes, with no one, no human activity, maybe because I had to be overly social in my daily job. One day I got fed up of my job, decided to devote my time to my passion and started a retraining. In the beginning, I was not attracted by social photography (wedding, portraits). But today, I can reconnect with what I liked in my HR job, help people write their own story and memories. I need it, it’s my fuel. Shooting weddings is my media to tell a story and render what I learned about people. It helps me keep faith in humanity and in feelings we too often try to hide. I also do a lot of corporate photography along with personal projects. [Pyrénées-Atlantiques 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. 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
