Taranto wedding photography by Francesco Gravina of Apulia, Italy

I am a destination wedding photographer. Over the years I focused on the world of weddings and from 2006 I finally started to express my ideas and creativity through reportage photography, or known as photojournalism. Exchanges, workshops, and collaborations with other colleagues in recent years, led me to the conclusion that much heart, and an almost invisible presence of the photographer during the event, creates best results for a real wedding reportage. A beautiful picture is something so subjective. It doesn’t have to be technically perfect to be beautiful, yet it needs to be able to re-evoke unique moments and feelings. In one single image, there is so much to say and, even more, transmit to those who look at it, again and again in time. I am a very sensitive person, one of those lucky who get excited while waiting of the bride, or enchanted in front of a kiss at the sunset. And I like to get involved emotionally in front the love stories of my couples, this is the secret of the success of my “Photo Wedding Stories”. [Taranto Wedding Photographer]

Italy wedding photographer Raffaella Arena studied Disciplines of Art, Music and Entertainment

Photography for me has been always a little magic. I remember going in the darkroom was like going into another world, in a holy place where be essential to be quit. I like so much to watch the paper ripple in the water, soften, soak and sink! It was as if the water movement was enough to make appear a face from scratch! I was born in the photographic chemical smells… my father was a photographer. I took my first pictures worthy of attention in 1994, and shortly thereafter they became a photographic exhibition in my city. Since then I have never stopped photographing and decided that photography would be “what I’ll do when I grow up”. Over time separating me from becoming a professional, I took my Bachelor’s degree in art and performing arts and learned to shooting pictures on the theater sets. In 1999 I met the Magnum photographer Leonard Freed, and during my workshop I learn to know to and appreciate the photojournalism photography. Later, in 2003 at another workshop, this time with Ferdinando Scianna, I decided to begin my adventure in the wedding photojournalism. As a professional photographer I have also worked for several advertising agencies creating numerous corporate reportages, still life and portraits. In 2010 I was admitted to the Wedding Phojournalist Association - WPJA and in the same year I was recommended by White Magazine Italia in the "Excellence in Wedding Photography" contest. In 2012 I obtain through examination, QIP (Qualified Italian Photographer) certification in the Wedding category. [Cosenza Wedding Photographer]

Then there are the vast majority of animal lovers whose anxiety over their pets’ unpredictable behavior keeps them from extending an invitation to them.

Sideline story photography at the wedding reception showing ladies drinking gin from tea cups
Some wedding photographers may feel the need to include the bride or groom in every picture, but those photos convey only part of the day's record. Most WPJA members will probably tell you that you're not fully documenting the event unless you get out there on the periphery and record the subplots of the wedding day—the unique and intersecting stories of the guests as they enjoy the festivities. We call these types of pictures “sideline shots,” and they are distinct from the standard reaction...Read more
