I was born in 1968 and since I was a child the passion of photography has marked the years of my life. For 12 years I have been working as a photographer specializing in wedding photojournalism, where my goal in every wedding is to tell, to capture the right moments of the day in a natural way. My studio on Lake Como, but I did marriages in Venice, 5 lands, ROMA, and Hong Kong. [Como Wedding Photographer]

Campania and Naples wedding photography by Luca Salvemini of Italy

Luca Salvemini was born in Naples in 1981. Second-born of three brothers, he approached photography on the day of his First Communion, thanks to a compact Olympus given to him by an uncle. His passion becomes a life choice when he enrolls in the Faculty of Psychology, where his studies and background allow him to develop an innovative approach to work, a mix of passion, understanding, and emotion. Time and experience will be too strong, and Luca will form part of his method on the ability to establish true and empathetic relationships with couples. After intense training at the Scuola Romana di Fotografia and a very strong apprenticeship in a Photo Studio, he decides to leave Italy and approach a new work experience in Amsterdam. In a few months, he gives his first solo show at the Amsterdam Royal Gallery. After a couple of years in the Netherlands, he returns to Naples where he decides to found Life Photography together with Davide. He is a huge fan of U2 band. It is impossible to count on the fingers of two hands the number of concerts he has assisted to, in Italy and in Europe. Indeed, as soon as he has free time it is likely to find him shooting pictures around the world with his camera living the experiences of the places. [Naples Wedding Photographer]

While some of us were fortunate enough to be born as extroverts, not everyone feels the same way. For a good chunk of the population, any number of the typical wedding day traditions can inspire anxiety and existential dread. This day is all about you, yes, but does that mean all the attention has to be on you as well? FROM VOWS TO CHITCHAT, WHICH REMAINS SACRED? Traditional weddings often require some degree of performance on the part of the couple, whether that is in the form of reciting...Read more
Traditionally speaking, often times it is the couple’s families who help pay for their wedding. However, unfortunately that’s just not possible for everyone, especially these days when the cost of weddings can quickly and easily get out of control. 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
