Frequently asked Questions
Why should we choose you as our photographer?
Well hopefully if you're still reading this, it's because you love my work! Every wedding I shoot is different and with that in mind I approach each wedding with fresh eyes, watching the day unravel through my camera. I like to take the photographs that will bring your memories flooding back and some that you had no idea had happened. I want to take you back to that day with magical and emotional images.
I am very experienced and I have gained an excellent reputation both with my customers and the venues I visit. You can read what my couples have to say in the 'Kind Words' section. I am fortunate to be able to call many of my couples friends. This is because I don't just turn up and shoot your wedding I am there from the outset to offer friendly advice on any aspect of your day. I really do want to get the very best photographs and give you the very best experience. I am very aware that there are plenty of other photographers out there and this is one of the most daunting decisions to make. After all, once the day is over these are the only lasting keepsake you have. So yes, it is so important to make the right decision for you, your family and friends. I genuinely feel it is an honor to be chosen to play such an important role in the day and would never take that for granted.
And lastly… I want you to thoroughly enjoy your day and view the photographs and myself as part of that enjoyment. I’m friendly, fun, approachable and just bossy enough to make sure everybody behaves...once that drink flows it can be a challenge!
I hope to hear from you soon and we can start to talk. You can then relax and enjoy your fairy tale with the knowledge you are in very safe hands.
What qualities should I look for in a WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER ITALY?
The first quality to look for in a wedding photographer is Personality. When interviewing potential photographers, myself included, keep in mind that you will be spending most of your wedding day with them. If you do not feel that this is a person with whom you can be comfortable with, you should feel free to choose another photographer. In fact, if you feel uncomfortable with me or my associates in any way, please do not hire me.
The Portfolio is next. When you view my portfolio you are viewing the work that best represents my style, and it should match the style you are looking for. Again, If it is not what you like or are looking for, please do not hire me. Don’t contact me only to looking for a good price!!
What’s your photographic style ?
I simply do wedding photography in Italy with a reportage approach , this specific sort of images doesn’t force any kind of poses however it works to describe all of those minor essential events of your a wedding day in the best genuine as well as natural style. Really I don’t want to “steer” your most important day which have to be something belonging just to the wedding couple rather than to the photographer’s ; I’ll aim to be invisible as possible . In my view if you want traditional wedding photographs , that means staged wedding photographs , I can’t be your wedding photographer in Italy .
What is included in your service?
My best service includes the whole wedding shooting from the preparation of the bride, the ceremony and the reception, the aperitif, dinner, until the cake cut and first dance. It will be a continuous document, which I will allow to have shots of every moment of the day. The handmade wedding album, containing 80-90 pictures in color and bw, Fine Art paper prints available also, in different sizes and an USB drive containing all shots (approximately 500 images) of the day in high resolution, with the permission to reprint.

In order to confirm my service for your wedding day, I ask for a completed and signed contract together with a deposit payment of 30% of your chosen photography package.
The remaining balance is due 30 days before the wedding. My calendar is always changing as we usually book up 9-12 months in advance of each wedding, so please contact me to check my current availability for your event date.

How soon will receive the album?
If your contract only consist of HD files purchase, you will receive them within 60 days after the wedding. If you have opted for an album, delivery times can take from 4 to 6 months after the wedding.
Do you provide also the video service?
We focus only and exclusively on photography. However we will be happy to suggest some operators with whom we work regularly and we can trust in terms of seriousness and experience. The timing of marriage require speed and quickness, an operator scarce not only slow down the work, but would undermine the success of the same. We do not work with non-professional videographers.
