Milan wedding photography by Gianluca Sgarriglia of Lombardy, Italy

From an early age, I was fascinated by photography. I remember at the age of about 5-6 I used to play with a red analog camera, I didn't photograph, my parents didn't load the film, I didn't even know what a camera or a photograph was, but ... I enjoyed putting the eye in that viewfinder and imagine my world. I took up photography again at the age of 19, the passion for this art was back, so I decided to buy my first SLR, a Nikon, even if a basic camera for me represented the best to be able to express myself. I photographed everything, every day, not a single day went by when I didn't take a photograph; whether it is landscape, animals, street photography, portraits or macro, I really photographed for the pleasure and pleasure of it. One fine day, a professional photographer asked me for a hand for a wedding, that day I had a shock, I realized that I loved photographing weddings. Adrenaline, the emotion of an unrepeatable day. I became passionate about wedding photography and I started studying some authors, two above all, I think these two photographers have been my source of inspiration for me, I'm talking about Jeff Ascough and Carlo Carletti. After a few years as an assistant to a photographer I decided that photography would be my job, and specifically wedding photography, it was 2013 when I photographed my first wedding, I was 22 years old! My approach to wedding photography is documentary, I don't foresee poses, I don't construct situations, on the contrary, I try to keep a low profile and I will tell everything that happens in a natural and spontaneous way. I love black and white, contrasts, shades of light and shadow, I love the expressions on people's faces, the emotions that a face can give us if you can observe, I photograph to tell these emotions. In addition to photographing weddings, when I manage to carve out some time for myself, I dedicate myself a little to street photography, a great passion of mine. For me, photography is a daily thought, not a day that goes by when I don't think, I reflect on photography. It represents my way of expressing myself, of saying something, of stopping an emotion through an image. [Milan Wedding Photographer]

Traditionally speaking, often times it is the couple’s families who help pay for their wedding.

Some couples find themselves in the position of paying for all of their own wedding expenses, which can be quite the financial burden to take on, and about 40% of Millennials end up in this boat. So, how can you stick to your allotted...Read more
