Italian Wedding Photographer

Wedding in Umbria – Collelungo

Wedding in Umbria at Collelungo with the Lungarotti family. Morgan and Bobby were extremely lucky to be able to have their ceremony and reception in the beautiful Villas of Mimmina Lungarotti Treppaoli and Cristiana Lungarotti Pollidori who are sisters and belong to the Lungarotti family, famous for their Umbrian winery. The two families have been friends since 1959 when Mimmina went to the U.S. as an exchange student. Morgan has spent every summer with the Lungarotti family since she was 7 years old, so when it was time to plan her wedding, she wanted to have the marriage take place there, as the family and their homes were so special to her. She wanted to be close to “her Italian family” on her special day. Morgan took Bobby on several vacations to Perugia, so he also fell in love with Italy and the family. They wanted their guests from America to experience the beauty of a wedding in Umbria and the hospitality of the Lungarotti family and to meet and enjoy all of their Italian friends that have become so dear to them.

    Wow! I am blown away by the amazing photos. I feel like it was that day all over again. I knew you would be Morgans photographer after seeing my friends Kevin and Denise’s photos. Your talent is amazing and makes me want to fly to Italy for a photo shoot.

    Dear Paula and John

    I have not seen a more elegant and refined wedding except in the movies, your daughters wedding rivals Prizzi’s Honor, The Godfather, The Soprano’s, and yours was real and once in a lifetime. I wish I could have been there.

    Bravo! Bellisimo!

    What breathtaking photographs! As sad as I am that I was unable to attend the wedding and see these moments in person, these photographs seemed to capture all the love and joy this day embodied! I absolutely adore the images of Morgan and Bobby in the Italian countryside- an amazingly gorgeous couple with scenery to match!

    Another huge congratulations to Morgan and Bobby Pette!! Love you both so much!

    I have now looked at these photographs 100 times and each time I see something more, and begin to understand your eye even better. Seriously Jules…. why would anyone have a wedding without you as their photographer? You are shockingly beyond artistic talent. You Sir are a Master. It is an honor to have had you capture our moments.
