Everyone always says that your wedding day is all about you. But let’s face it; that’s not always actually the case. Many couples stress over guest lists, planning, expenses, and all the frills and traditions of your standard large wedding that they may or may not even be interested in. Fortunately, though, the concept of small weddings is becoming increasingly popular for couples who either want to be able to completely customize their day where and when they want with the option...Read more

RAVES, REVIEWS, AND RECOMMENDATIONS

Hello Salvo, how are you? We good; between Easter holidays and various bridges, the album of our wedding has already made more than 2000 km up and down Italy. Friends and relatives have relived with us that special day, which you have been able to capture with a careful eye. And for us to browse that album every time is an emotion. Needless to say that one of the most popular photos was the one with the lady who "sibafa" the granita at the Bam Bar in Taormina ... ;-) Arranging a wedding at a distance for us was not easy. We searched for a long time before finding someone who could interpret and tell our special day. In the end, we arrived at the Wedding Photojournalist Association website ... and we found you! Since the first meeting, you have understood exactly what we were looking for and, therefore, we can not but tell you infinitely thanks! A warm hug and a big good luck for your work, Michela and Davide

Hello Salvo, how are you? I wanted to thank you for the gift you gave us, the photos are wonderful and the effect they have on those who see them is spectacular. There are those who are moved, someone came the goosebumps ... in short, a hit! Telling a good story is a challenge. If, then, it is a love story and you have to tell it through images, the challenge becomes interesting and important. Accept this challenge with elegance, privacy and professionalism. Through your shots, you find yourself waiting anxiously for the arrival of the bride, to move you when you meet the gaze of a happy mother, to laugh with gusto, to taste the delights of the table, to smile gently when the couple look at each other lovers. Every picture is a surprise that makes you curious to discover the next one. It is marvel in the pure state. And, when you get to the last picture, you're satisfied at the end of a wonderful day. Telling a beautiful love story is a challenge you face by creating an intimate masterpiece for your spouses. We can only say thank you again, thanks sincerely and wholeheartedly. See you soon. Chiara and Gianluca.

Dear Salvo ... I really want to thank you ... once again for the immense gift you gave us ... light flames ... fixed on paper ... This is .... Yet very few can capture feeling, tension, emotion, like you ... giving it to you forever .... We were very lucky to meet you! ... ... In the whirlwind of anxiety and worries that precede marriage ... fear of not finding who would interpret our desires to the fullest ... who would not trivialize such an important moment, standardizing it like so many or almost all photographers who make their art just a job ... We discovered you by chance ... electrocuted by one of your photos on display outside your studio ... on a hot May day .... leaving us entranced by the "Sicilian" that transmitted that image ... .. We had no doubts ... it was what we wanted for our wedding! ... you were really !! And so, by making your acquaintance we have discovered, besides your skill, a kind, sensitive and incredibly professional man! What about ... we were more 'SATISFIED than your work .... Punctuality and reliability, as well as total dedication in satisfying our needs to perfection are now rare characteristics .... What we found in you! Our album is always with us ... a continuous pleasure for the eyes and for the soul ... a pride for us to have embellished thanks to your beautiful shots our day ... Thanks again for all! With affection Valentina and Giuseppe
