Hi, I’m Laura! Or maybe I should say “Hi, I’m a lucky girl” because my work is my greatest passion! I'm an Italian wedding photographer, based in my beloved Tuscany, but I love traveling and having the opportunity to tell the story of your wedding or elopement day wherever you want. I love spontaneity and people who have the courage to express their emotions, so my photographic style is a mix of photojournalistic wedding photography and romantic couple portraits, not posed but natural. I'm available for destination weddings in Italy: Tuscany, Val d'Orcia, Cinque Terre, Amalfi Coast, Venice and wherever you want me to be with you. I have always been, since childhood, deeply attracted to people, intrigued by their actions, their thoughts, and especially by what they feel and express. I went to school with my little Nikon camera, one of the most fitting gift that my parents could do! I filled rolls with faces, situations, emotions … review photos helped me to settle the most beautiful memories. I remember that I tried to photograph the joy, the student spirit, the complicity, friendship, love … and still, today, reviewing those shots, I feel again the same feelings and emotions. In this way, I understand that the photograph has enormous power in the life of each of us. When I grow up, all this turns into a job, I’m a psychologist psychotherapist specializing in the use of photography as a tool of psychological insight. The transition to becoming a wedding photographer was by accident… To tell the stories of the people through images, was the completion and integration of my passions. I love… …Cooking, as the conviviality shared with loved ones …The summer, when I sip a glass of chilled white wine on the beach at sunset …The winter, when the noisy storms contrast with the silence of a book, a sofa, and a plaid …Playing hide and seek with my cat, I swear! …And say what I think even when it can sound inconvenient! I could not live without… …My few but trusted friends …My car …The fear that gives me the courage I think… …The sensibility, the determination, the curiosity, the accord with own emotions, the knowledge, the continuous research to discover and to expose ourselves, can move any mountain! …The Love, the real one, that has nothing to do with our unfulfilled needs, exist …But to live it authentically, first of all, we have to learn loving ourselves! [Florence Wedding Photographer]
Yesterday... Whilst growing up I was fascinated by photography and occasionally I shot with my father Minolta and having fun to capture things around me, but that was an hobby. Then, when I met my wife Donatella, who is also passionate about photography and an old Polaroid, I decided, along with her, to immerse myself in this world full time and in 2011, after a month shooting around the United States we decided to move to London for a period to deepen the technical and open our mind to the reportage style. The Street Style in London has fascinated and the Reportage style catapulted us into another world, far away from the box of classic photography. We felt in love with it! We returned to Italy and in 2012 I decided to turn my hobby into a profession, specializing in wedding photography, focusing on spontaneity, on the 'not posing' and naturalness of a shot. Today... I am proud to be a professional photographer, specializing in wedding photography.I share this passion with my wife, life and photographs partner. I love to travel, discover new places, new people and habits, photographing everything that moves me and excites with my shots. Tomorrow... I hope to continue to express myself with photography...excite myself, as I do today, to the emotions of others. [Florence Wedding Photographer]
I'm a destination wedding photographer. I'm excited to photograph weddings in the Tuscan countryside, but also to travel and discover new places, meet people and experience new cultures whilst photographing weddings around the world. I love naturalness and spontaneity and always look to capture emotions. I’m cheerful, outgoing, stubborn and resourceful. I love the good vibes and positive people. [Florence Wedding Photographer]
I have been a Photographer since I was ten years old... professional since 20 years ago. I am 43 years old, I am married and I have two children Arturo and Matilde. I live in Florence (Italy) and I work by my self as a Photographer specialized in Stage Photography (theatre and cinema, set and backstage) and Wedding Reportage. I've start to do Wedding Photography seven years ago because The Wedding Day is a concentrate of emotions that occur "here and now" as the theatre ... and as long as I will shudder with every click I will continue to do so. I love the emotional expression of life in all its forms, the faces, the reactions, the charm, the amazement. The marvels of daily life are exciting. No Director would be capable of communicating the unexpected that surrounds us. I have done hundreds Photoservices for theatre and that has given me a particular style for the Wedding Photography… Reportage… Documentary… or, if you prefer, Photojournalism… I like to call THE REAL STORY OF YOUR WEDDING DAY. The goal of a good photographer is taking pictures that will live forever. The wedding reportage that I offer reflects this natural approach. I like to think that a wedding day is a magical moment and it deserves to be told for how it actually happens. Discretion. No contrived posing. No fake smiles. For me Photography is the way to keep memories alive and not allow them to disappear from memory. [Florence Wedding Photographer]

I’m Simone, an elopement and wedding photographer based in Tuscany! I was born in Florence and I was fortunate enough to grow up in this city. As a boy, I was fascinated by all the art surrounding me which has influenced my photography. Now I live in a small village in the Tuscan countryside between Florence, Siena, and Arezzo, with my beautiful wife Katherine and my little dog Greta. I think of myself as a dreamer and a traveler, with an introspective and joyful attitude. It is important for me to portray your emotions, that of the guest and various emotions perceived throughout the day together with my sentiments and feelings. What is my goal? My goal is to tell through wedding photography what you feel in those moments, to capture the emotions of both the couple and the guest. I try to give with my photographs something emotional, beyond the simple technique. [Arezzo Wedding Photographer]
My name is Federico Pannacci, I’m a professional wedding photographer and lifestyle. I really love to fly and live in tuscany with my mate, my daughter and my red cat ( Spritz! ). I never liked my image on the mirror, I never felt my shape as something of photogenic, for these reason I met photography, it was the way to study how to express the shape of the life in the same way my heart and mind felt it. This is the reason why my photography is genuine and natural but contaminated from a dreamy and artistic trend. [Siena Wedding Photographer]
I'm a wedding photographer based in Venice Italy but I work all over Italy and abroad. I've been working in the wedding industry for the past ten years and I love what I do, I love to capture the happiest moments of my client's life and being part of all of that! My style is called "wedding reportage" or "wedding photojournalism" which means that I avoid static poses and I prefer to catch the real moments and even if I'll be with bride and groom for the entire wedding, they won't notice me. This way they can act normally without feeling weird in front of a camera. [Venice Wedding Photographer]
Hi, I'm Alessia and I'm an Italian wedding photographer in Tuscany! Talking about my biography has always seemed a bit "presumptuous", because, unlike many photographers, I have never attended famous and expensive photography schools, but I have learned through experience, trying and experimenting with everything, while attending university and working to gain my much-needed journalist's card. Born in 1977, graduated in communication, with a strong predisposition to visual culture, always fascinated by the art of photography and the ability to tell stories with the unique power of images. My photographic debut took place very early when on the occasion of my first communion, my parents gave me a fantastic polaroid, a "magic box" that allowed me to discover all that was interesting in front of me, simply putting the reality on a film. And since that moment I have never stopped working in photography, also starting to study the technique in the manuals that adults passed to me and photographing everything that passed under my nose. In the following years then, I switched to various analogue reflex cameras and finally to digital ones after 2005, the year in which I opened my first photographic studio in Siena. Over the years, my passion for reportage photography then led me to become a wedding photojournalist, starting to work both in Tuscany and in many of the most beautiful Italian wedding locations. I currently live in Siena, in the heart of beautiful Tuscany, working as a Siena Wedding Photographer, with the ambition of becoming an exclusive Wedding Photographer in Tuscany and throughout Italy, Over the years, thanks to my work as a wedding photographer in Tuscany, I have learned to know very well all the most beautiful and renowned wedding locations in my area: Siena, San Gimignano, San Galgano, Pienza, Montepulciano, Florence, Arezzo, Cortona, the Crete Senesi, the Chianti hills and the Val d'Orcia, places where getting married is truly something unique and unforgettable. Given my inclination as a storyteller, my photographic style is purely journalistic, which leads me to follow every event almost on tiptoe and in the most discreet way possible, then returning an emotionally well-marked and chronologically well-ordered photographic story. And this is the main reason why, from the first contact, I try to establish a relationship of trust and confidence with the spouses, in order to create a quiet and relaxed atmosphere that allows me to work at my best by creating a spontaneous photo story and images full of meaning and feeling. And to create this relationship of trust, before the wedding photoshoot, I generally propose to my spouses an engagement photoshoot in Tuscany, a free and peaceful photo session that is always useful for both parties, to become familiar with the lens, arriving at the wedding day with a certain harmony As a wedding photographer in Tuscany I work mainly in the area between Siena and Florence and I am always available for Intimate Weddings, Couple Photography, Family Photography, Romantic Engagement and Elopement in the most beautiful wedding destinations in Tuscany, but also moving throughout Italy to reach other magical Italian wedding locations, such as Lake Como, Venice and the Amalfi Coast, because traveling and meeting interesting people is what makes me love my job the most! In fact, in addition to photography and in addition to an immeasurable passion for all types of cats, traveling and always knowing new cultures is one of my greatest passions, because I am convinced that continuous knowledge is a way to grow personally and in the end, the greatest wealth that an individual can have! (about cats ... if you see me with some hair on my clothes, know that I have five!) Today I can therefore say that I am very lucky to be a Wedding Photographer in Tuscany, because I love this job and because it is the job that I have always wanted to do, growing day by day with my immense passion to tell the different love stories of people who they chose me as the narrator of their most beautiful day. So if you like my style do not hesitate to contact me, I will be happy to tell your love story! [Siena Wedding Photographer]
Simone Bacci was born in Arezzo in the October of 1975. His first camera is a Kodak Disc 4000 that whilst used during school tours for normal shoots, got Simone interested into photography. With this ‘curiosity’ aside, Simone carried on many international travels on work in the leisure sector. It is during one of these last business journeys that he met a person who relight his curiosity. From curiosity to profession with the main factor being passion. After attending several classes and workshops, most of these focusing on wedding and ceremonies photography, in 2007 he opens his first professional studio.His first jobs are full of enthusiasm but turned off by a formal approach to weddings, with static and posing pictures.Feeling himself embarrassed by being photographed, Simone develops the attitude to feel in the shoes of the couples in front of him during one of their most important day in life. He therefore changes direction, leaving the couples free to do what they prefer, aiming at capturing their emotions in a fully natural manner delivering a reportage oriented approach to weddings. This is how his stories are born. [Arezzo Wedding Photographer]
I’m a Tuscany wedding photographer based in Siena, but I work in all of Italy for weddings. I have taken photos for weddings in Siena, Florence, Arezzo, Perugia, Assisi, Gubbio, Milano, Como Lake, Rome, in the Chianti hills, in Val D’Orcia, and in many other beautiful italian locations. I have a reportage style in which a discrete approach, attention to details and spontaneity are the main ingredients. I always have this objective: to create a story through photos, a photo narration as faithful and natural as possible. That’s why from the beginning, I try to establish starting with the first contact with the future bride and groom, a rapport or feeling of confidence to create a tranquil and relaxed atmosphere that permits me to give life to natural and spontaneous photos full of meaning and sentiment. I was born in Siena in 1977. I graduated with a degree in political science and I obtained a doctorate in the history of European political parties. After working several years at the University of Siena, various events and my passion for photography led me to the decision to become a professional photographer. Shortly after starting my career as an exclusive Tuscany wedding photographer, I was fortunate enough to gain experience in the art world. I published for the magazines Play Boy Italy and Art Tribune and showed my photos at exhibitions at various art galleries ( Wikiarte, Magazzini del Sale). After the birth of my first daughter ( Maria Ludovica) my main focus became to be a Siena Wedding Photographer, a exclusive Tuscany wedding photographer and everywhere in Italy. I know every angle of my marvelous region: Siena, Florence, Arezzo and all of the beautiful villages and towns. San Gimignano, Chianti hills, Val d’Orcia and the Crete senesi hold no secrets for me. Other than wedding photography, I also teach at “ Studiumfotografia”, a school I created, where I advise many up and coming photographers. After the birth of my second daughter (Maria Luce), the University of Siena gave me the honor of the position of visiting lecturer of digital communications in photography. When I’m not working (rarely) I dedicate myself to my passions: naturally Ludi and Luce, but I also love watching movies, reading and I cannot live without music! Contact me for your Exclusive Tuscany wedding photographer. [Siena Wedding Photographer]
I'm a keen observer. I've always been. I remember my mom kept telling me not to stare at people when I was a kid. I don't seem to have listened as I keep staring at people, only now I do it through the viewfinder of my camera. My interest in photography started back in the mid-'80s when I was barely a teenager. I saved for over a year to afford my first camera, which was a Nikon FM2 with a 50mm lens. A fully manual, film camera that I still own to this day and that still takes perfectly good pictures. It was a time when cameras and photographs were both meant to last. Cameras were mostly mechanical machines and photographs were physical prints, created on film and impressed on paper. There was something tangible about taking a picture and pictures, even normal family vacation pictures, were taken to make a statement. I remember leaving for several days with my family and I could take with me 1 or maybe 2 rolls of film. That was 36 or 72 exposures total. So, pressing the shutter was something exciting that came at the end of a thoughtful process, which could take minutes or a split second, but still: taking a picture was making a statement. And if you think about it, these photographs are still around, be it in albums or boxes in the closet. It may be your pictures as a child or the pictures of your parents or grandparents. They are still doing their work of preserving a memory, of passing down to generations information about people who came before us. They are telling us who we are and where we come from. Fast forward a few decades, come digital sensors and smartphones and photography has radically changed, in that cameras seem to only last a few years before going obsolete and pictures are taken by the thousands, very few of which, if any, will ever be printed and stand any chance to be looked at by anyone in 10 years or more. Still, my job is to take photographs of weddings and I like to come from the bygone era of photography that was meant to last when the shutter was pressed to make a statement. That has stuck with me, even if I'm working with digital cameras and the 36 exposures roll has turned into a multi-thousand pictures capacity memory card. My mindset hasn't changed, the excitement of seeing all the elements come together to make the frame I am looking for and pressing the shutter, that hasn't changed either. I'm entering my 10th year as a professional wedding photographer now. It all happened almost by chance, when I was facing decisions about my 15 years long corporate career and my personal life had me rethink my professional path. I was asked to shoot a friend's wedding but I hadn't practiced photography since ages. I learnt photography technique when I was in my teens then put it aside as my hobby is and has always been guitars. So I borrowed a digital camera and took this people's wedding pictures without ever been taught how to shoot a wedding. I just went out there and took pictures of what I saw, without ever giving directions to anyone as I had no idea how things were supposed to be directed. It was documentary wedding photography without me knowing it. Turns out, everybody loved the pictures. I was loving guitars and music so much and hoping to be loved back but as it went, photography loved me more than guitars ever did. I had a talent and the responsibility of making it grow. In the meanwhile, I started my business. I already had the basic techniques down from my younger days, so I studied the work of the masters. Photographers that always appealed to me such as W. Eugene Smith, H. Cartier Bresson, Don Mc Cullin, Elliott Erwitt, Salgado and the more I studied, the more I discovered, the more books I acquired: Alex Webb, Fan Ho, Josef Koudelka, Bruce Gilden, Robert Frank, James Nachtwey among the others. The best way to improve your lexicon is to read books. Likewise for photography, studying the work of the masters on photography books is what develops your own photographic language. What educates your way of looking at things and crafting a picture, to make your statement. To this day, I've shot approximately 300 weddings. Anything from eloping couples and a pair of guests to 200+ people events. No matter how big and fancy or small and simple, it's always about telling the story of my clients through my pictures. It's about putting my photography lexicon to work to craft images that will be true to my clients, to their day, to their vision. They provide the content, I provide the style. Simple as that. [Savona Wedding Photographer]
The love for reportage photography was born out of passion when I bought my first camera, a Nikon FM10 film in Guatemala, almost twenty years ago. I started photographing a few precious, intense and unrepeatable moments of my travels, from the most remote areas of Himalayan Asia to the most boundless areas of Tierra del Fuego, inextricably sealing my two strongest passions: travel and photographic reportage. My reportage photography was therefore born as a loving language, with the need to give small pieces of a dream, enhance and transmit the emotions that bring people's hearts close together. In reportage photography, the moment reigns everywhere sovereign, as well as in the most important day of the celebration of Love. It is precisely in the instant, which is the shortest imaginable moment, the lapse where a thousand spells occur, and where memories bring amazement and enchantment for a lifetime. For more than ten years I have been capturing the most beautiful moments on the most beautiful day of the couple's life, in Italy and abroad, gathering moments that make that day and one's own life unique. Every wedding deserves to be told through eyes and heart, this is the purpose of my art: to tell the beauty and emotions of your most important day and to make this precious moment eternal. Over the years I have exhibited my works in various exhibitions, and I am reported as a photographer on VOGUE. And now something about my travels: I have explored the world, in lands dotted with faces, landscapes, and silences, where peace and beauty kidnap the heart and nourish emotions. Ladak, Mongolia, Nepal, Cambodia, Patagonia, New Guinea, Myanmar, Guatemala, Namibia, India, Ceylon are just some of the countries where I was given the photographic emotion and I, therefore, shared it time to time as a gift. To those who have come to read these last lines I would like to give a story, a look: imagine you are at dusk, in the garden of one of the countless monasteries of the Ex Burma, or in the plain of the Golden Pagodas, or in any street in the countryside .. you find yourself with your nose up, without realizing it: each person, child or adult has a piece of thread in his hand, and with the skill of movement they float the small kite in the sky. Your gaze now shifts in their gaze. This is absolute sweetness. And this is the indelible memory of the country. [Ravenna Wedding Photographer]
I deal with documentary reportage photography since more than ten years. I have studied with Major Italian and international reportage photographers, in Italy and abroad. I graduated at the School of Photojournalism of ISFCI in Rome. The passion for photography and for story-telling is literally sweeping me away. My way of shooting has been influenced by study and admiration of the work of the Masters of Photojournalism, the American street photography and the contemporary Italian and English excellences in wedding documentary photography. I feel honored to offer my passion for photography, for story-telling and for life in general to those want to witness their wedding in an authentic and emotional way. [Rome Wedding Photographer]
When, at the age of 18, I entered Angela Merkel’s office to present myself, I couldn’t imagine that this lady would become the most powerful woman in the world one day. Back then, I worked as a photojournalist in Bonn and Berlin, Germany and that I photographed her for an interview. At that time I also had the honor to photograph Bill Clinton, Bono Vox from U2 and many more personalities. At that time it was about the single PHOTO – now it’s about the STORY. Sometime later, at the age of 23, I met Linda. The year after we got married and since then we live happily together, we have a little house in a small town on the sea, less than two kilometers from the pub where we met the first time. We have two adorable daughters, Emma is 11, Lena is 6 and life has been very good to me. One day, a friend of mine asked me to photograph his brother’s wedding. That was the moment when I discovered what I would do with love and passion over the next years. Every weekend I’m traveling not only Liguria and Tuscany but all Italy, Europe, and the world capturing much more than just the exchange of the rings or a signature under the register. It’s about the story of a day that is truly unique in life. How often does it happen that you invite friends and families, some see each other again after many years, to celebrate a big party together? It’s the uniqueness and the joy of that day that has always touched me. I remember the first time when Emma opened our wedding album. I was observing her while she was browsing the spreads and I realized the value these photographs will have one day. That big day often is the beginning of a life together, a time capsule which you will look at all the time with joy and pride. This value is priceless. I’d like to talk to you about your wedding.

Hi! I am Jeremie, storytelling, traveling wedding photographer and videographer based in France. Former aerospace engineer, Europe, and Canada/US-educated, work & photography have taken me to 15+ countries on 5 continents over the years, but the emotion is a universal language. I love documenting weddings and elopements in a photojournalistic and authentic way, unnoticed, capturing emotion and in-between moments that make the best memories of this day. [Vendee Wedding Photographer]
Photography and people are Joshua’s two greatest passions. Utterly curious – a nice legacy she got from her grandmother – she loves to meet new people, observe them and capture what they are all about. She is both outgoing and calm so to make everyone feel at ease. Very patient, she has a special radar for shenanigans. Her goal is to document small but great moments that might otherwise go unnoticed, to capture the moment just as it felt that day. She is a visual storyteller. Mostly self-taught, she has been a professional photographer for the last 7 years, full time since 2013. She is based in Antwerp, Belgium, and travels in (and sometimes out) Europe for Day in the Life sessions and Weddings. She is at her best when shooting true, unstaged and profound moments and events – in a relaxed atmosphere. [Antwerpen Wedding Photographer]
“Photography is mute, but the image in its visual language, speaks of truth …” – Steve Mc Curry – Just like Steve McCurry says, it is reality that inspires me, narrating, through photography, the truth as it is, without filters or mediation. I’m interested above all in capturing these emotions in contexts and situations which involve love and family. Travelling both in Italy and abroad, I realize my wedding photography with a reportage style, that is narrating every moment with an image, every detail in a very natural way, without poses or arranged settings and without making my presence felt. [Pistoia Wedding Photographer]
My professional preparation as a wedding photographer was handed down through my father, a photographer at the time, he taught me the real manual using his old Pentax film. The move to new technologies was natural so I decided to buy my first reflex camera and then stay up to date, following various photographic studios and new courses as a wedding photographer. I simply answer this question: it makes me feel good and I like to describe, tell the story of two people, through the importance of light and the value of shadows. Mainly I love to make people feel good with whom I have the privilege of describing those moments so important and invaluable. I take care of every project, from start to finish, paying the utmost attention to every detail, trying to give the couple the maximum in terms of professionalism. The need to express myself led me to study photography and, as I come to explore it more deeply, I also discovered myself. [Livorno Wedding Photographer]
I’ve loved photography since an early age. Since I started to photograph as a teenager, with old Kodaks, I have been focusing on landscapes, as I love to travel and enjoy the outdoors and nature a lot. In my early 20’s I felt like changing my approach, as I needed some different subject to capture, so I moved towards Portrait Photography. With my experience in Landscapes, I found myself falling in love with Environmental Portraiture as it also develops Reportage skills. But not long after that, I felt like I was still missing something. I was already telling the stories, but I wanted to focus on emotions like: Love and Happiness, I wanted to describe the stories of Relationships, of Emotions and Feelings between two people, a loving couple. So, as you can already tell, this is how I became a Wedding Photographer. For some years I was working as a second photographer on weddings with photographers I consider my “Gurus” and Masters of Wedding Photography, in countries like Ireland, Poland and Switzerland. Not to mention several Workshops and Masterclasses (lately online also). It is the seventh year now that I'm working by myself, as a full-time professional Wedding Photographer, in other words: It is seven years that I’m living my Dream! Today, I’m proud to say that the only addiction which I have is Photography, dreaming about my next Wedding to shoot and have this boost of satisfaction while delivering my pictures to newlywed couples! The key to success in wedding photography, in my opinion, is: Have a Vision, know your Skills (learn and improve constantly) and Tools, build your Experience and Confidence and lastly - Enjoy your Work, as long as it collides with your passion - You have won the life! Oh, lastly, I am living and working at one of the most beautiful and romantic places on Earth - Tuscany - sometimes I ask myself how lucky I am to have this environment and all this love to shoot! [Siena Wedding Photographer]
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]

You're a great person and amazing artist! Thank you for being with us on our special day! Thank you for noticing all the small details, emotions...which not everybody can see! Thank you for bringing more beauty to this world with your art!!!
Caterina it was enough to see the love that comes out of each of your photos to be sure that no one else could report the most beautiful day of our life if not you. None of your shots are classic or banal, as you well know many photographers tend to standardize wedding photos .. yours are absolutely unique! A magical light surrounds every shot, and emotions are the protagonists, none is left out. In the months before our wedding you became a friend, so it has been even it more exciting! You are a unique person, so kind, and with an immense heart; we have been captured by your joy and love o life !! Thank you !!
Caterina, if your photographs can trigger unique emotion with no comment to be said as they are spontaneously purely taken, it is your very presence, the incredible passion you have in your job that make the real difference. A professionist with a big heart that made our day unique and our memories unforgettable. We would pick you a thousand times !
"... Where to start .. we just love you !!!!! We came to you through a word of a dear friend .. and it was enough for me to look at some of your shots to be sure that it was just the right thing !! Your way of shooting differentiates from all the rest .. no poses at all, instead you have always been ready to steal the shots, the most important moments ... those that make the difference, the real ones ! We love your colors, so delicate, a union between dream and reality ! And you .. such a sweet and sensitive person .. your eyes and your enthusiasm reflect the passion for your work .. we would reconfirm you a thousand times again because our wedding was a dream and your photos pure emotion .. ! Thank you so much dear Cate :) Laura, Fabio and Bianca
We received the pictures and we love them. I can admit I was worried about a few things in Rome, but, I was never worried about the photography! we loved your portfolio and in meeting with you, I knew we could expect great results and professionalism. The whole experience was incredible that day, everything went as expected, and we are thankful that you documented it so well.
We haven't stopped looking at them and we've had a mini Ravello union with our families to look through your amazing photography! We are thrilled & couldn't be happier with the memories that you have captured. We will think of you often as we look through them. Thank you for your professionalism & time dedicated to producing these fabulous pictures! If you are ever planning a trip to Ireland / Northern Ireland we'd be happy to recommend places you could visit. Many many thanks again,
