We got in touch with Alix from Lumiere Photography, a photographer based in Loughborough, about her photography and asked her a few questions.
How did you get started?
I was asked to take a few photos at a friends Hindu wedding. He had a photographer but wanted a different perspective too. When he saw my photos, he said he preferred mine to the ones he had paid a fortune for. So I decided to set up business. I had already had a book published and was selling stock but I took the plunge. I have always loved photography, as a kid, I used to frame with my fingers, I still take photos in my mind when I don’t have my camera!
What makes you unique from other photographers out there?
I bring a fresh look into things, I am French, Italian family, I bring many cultures with me. I am also friendly and flexible, I’m happy to tailor packages, to do payment plans, gift vouchers, anyway to help. I love sharing the journey, feeling part of the “family” and keeping in touch with people afterwards.
Why do you love what you do?
It’s a celebration of love, joy, emotions, it’s saying Life is beautiful- la vie est belle- It’s carpe diem, sieze the moment because this one won’t come back, but it’s also saying there are millions of beautiful moments.. Very optimistic.
Finally, what are your goals for the future?
I’d like to travel more with photography. I am freelance and my kids are teens so I can afford to go places and weddings abroad are fab. I speak different languages, have travelled, love learning about different cultures. So far I have shot weddings in Spain, France, Italy, and Ireland. I might go to Morocco for one or even Goa, I’ll see..
