Trieste wedding and elopement photography by Lisa Pacor of Friuli-Venezia Giulia Italy

After my personal experience as a bride, telling in pictures about this wonderful moment in the life of a couple who believes in love, mutual trust, and complicity has become my personal "mission". So I ventured into this difficult and complex world, but I immediately understood that wedding photography is an artistically vast, complete and always stimulating field. I admit that I love marriages so much because they bring out the best in people, they are rich with various emotions and the surprise is always around the corner. For this reason, above all, I love the authenticity of moments because magic happens just when you are simply yourself, together with the most important people in your life: real moments that come to life in a completely natural way. People who love me think that I'm cheerful, ironic, genuine and sincere. It's vital for me to spend my free time with the people I love, chat with friends about everything and anything until the most unlikely hours; I love the warm colours of nature in autumn and the summer light; my favourite colour is blue in all its shades. I am passionate about films and TV series that, in addition to entertaining and telling beautiful stories, can teach a lot about photography. Even if I don't have a favourite genre, I listen to a lot of music, a passion that is part of me since I can remember. [Trieste Wedding Photographer]

Lifestyle portrait of Paolo Blocar Italian Wedding and Elopement Photographer

I was born in Trieste, where I have always lived apart from some time in various Italian cities, but worshiping the sea and the climate of our city, my heart has always brought me back here. And that's where I met Lisa, many years ago. Then one day I asked for her hand ... and since then we share everything, even cameras. I followed Lisa in this project of hers and I believed in her from the beginning, also because I was lucky to have a photographer dad who taught me to love photography in all its forms and made me realize how important it is. Precisely for this reason, I wanted to put body and soul, together with Lisa, in this work; for me it is great to meet new people, living with them the emotions during the wedding day and tell the story through the images. I am a great lover of technology, cinema, film, and TV series: I would spend whole days looking at them without interruption and I always find inspiration for work. In my free time, I love being in the company of our family, chatting with friends even late and spending nice evenings with them filling our bellies with good food, at home or in some restaurant. I love traveling, visiting new places, experimenting with new things and tasting typical foods of the place: work permitting I would be perpetually traveling; from America to Oceania, from South Africa to Iceland, my dream is to be able to visit at least a small piece of every continent.

Portrait of Mattia Camozzi, Venice Documentary Wedding Photographer

Since I was a baby my father was very passionate about photography. I grew up watching photos of my family and being photographed myself. Although, I didn't really get into photography until after I finished High School. I was looking for a job and stumbled upon a local photographer with a little shop and studio. I started there as a retoucher and post-producer, then I slowly started to shoot some photos. But after a few years, I realized that was not at all what I wanted from photography. I was growing and changing, and so was my taste. I grew tired of posed weddings and portraits and searching for inspiration I came across Street Photography. It changed me to my core. I discovered this new way for me to create images and, other than that, to create MEMORIES. I did my fair share of Weddings, working for other photographers, so I opened my business learning that "Documentary Wedding" was actually a thing. Street photography, movies, documentaries, books, and everything I "receive" have a big influence on my style. When I'm not shooting Weddings I photograph my life with my partner, my family, my friends and what I do, because I think that memories will be one of the few things we'll have when we will be old. I photograph the fun, the laughs, the dancing and the crying, the strange and the simple, because life it's all of these. [Venice Wedding Photographer]

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]
