Hi! I am an italian wedding photographer, well actually I am an English man living in Tuscany, Italy. I used to live in London and worked doing marketing and advertising with some commercial photography. I decided to take a risk and try my hand at something else that interested me more and I also wanted a change of lifestyle so I took a chance and moved to Italy.
I am available to photograph your wedding anywhere in Italy or internationally. I have photographed weddings in Italy in many destinations including Tuscany, Florence, Cortona, Siena, Lucca, Montepulciano, Rome, Positano, Sorrento, Ravello, Capri, Como, Venice, Malcesine, Sirmione, Orta, Verona, Perugia, Assisi, Todi, Sardinia to name but a few. Internationally I have photographed weddings in Greece, Thailand, Dubai and the U.S.A. My favourite location as an italian wedding photographer must be Tuscany. Yes I am biased because I live here and yes it is nice to work close to home but I just love the scenery and what’s on offer here that I can use in my photos.
I love photographing weddings, from the Hollywood film directors I have photographed, to the couple that is eloping I treat every wedding with the same commitment. My work has been featured in Vogue, HELLO, INSTYLE, HOLA, Vanity Fair, Harper’s Bazaar, Cosmopolitan Bride, Wedding, Wedding Flowers, Luna, and Italy Magazine among others. I have even photographed a wedding recognised by “Ripley’s Believe It Or Not!”.
I speak Italian fluently and don’t mind helping out with translating if there are some language problems. If your wedding party is mixed with English and Italian speaking guests that’s no problem, I can communicate with both.
To some up my style of photography I’d say “it is fashion oriented modern contemporary classical candid pseudo photo-journalistic reportage portraiture with details…” At this point I can hear you cry “What on earth is that!” What it means is that I do not believe you can completely photograph a wedding in one style of photography so you have do them all in order to get the most extensive coverage of probably the most important day of your lives so far. I leave you to enjoy your wedding day without having a photographer in your face, I prefer to work unnoticed from a distance to capture emotions and spontaneity, most people say they were unaware of me at work. However, if necessary I will guide you and do my best to make your day go perfectly.
My clients often say that I am more than a wedding photographer that I am also a wedding coordinator. I have been to hundreds of weddings and so I have gained a lot of knowledge that isn’t just relative to the photos. If I see that you are not sure what to do or where to go I will help you and your guests as I want get the best photos and keep things moving. Apart from that I work in the background most of the time letting everyone have a good time and be themselves. For the group photos I will speak up in order to call the required people and get the photos done as quickly as possible. I don’t like stiff formals so I will interact with you and get everyone to have fun during the groups, they don’t need to be a bunch of dull photos.
I prefer to shoot a whole wedding rather than just a part of a wedding as I like to cover the whole story of your wedding day. I just prefer to cover the whole wedding in detail from an artistic point of view as this allows me to create the best album possible. If you are having a welcome dinner and want that photographed too then let me know and we can sort something out. I also do engagement and honeymoon shoots.
If you are visiting Italy because you are considering getting married there I would be happy to meet you and show you my work. Otherwise I have many examples online and I can email you plenty of information.
If you are interested in booking I will draw up a legal contract between us. The contract is simply a professional formality that gives us both peace of mind.
Once you have booked I will send you my list of tips to improve your wedding photos and we will start working together to get the best results!
I look forward to being your italian wedding photographer!
