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]
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]
I was born in 1970 in a lovely place close to Lake Como and Lake Maggiore, beautiful lakes of Northern Italy. Since I was a little boy I have been fascinated by “photography” and it is now twenty years that I have been working in this field. In the last fifteen years I have been working as a photographer, especially for weddings. In 2012, in Milan, I set up “WeddingStudio” together with other colleagues. I take photos of wedding days giving a “ photo journalistic” cut to my pictures. That is why I define myself as a “modern storyteller”. Telling stories and touching people through my pictures: that is what I love to do. That is my job and my passion. And when there is passion in what you do, you see the difference! I like thinking and telling about your wedding in a different way: the newlyweds have to live and enjoy every moment of that day and share every moment with their loved ones. That is why I like to become “invisible” and catch details, shades, glances, moods and going on gestures. My job is a wonderful job and every time that one of my pictures can stir up emotions or recollections in people looking at it I think that considering it as “wonderful” is still not enough...

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]
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]
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.

I was born in 1984 in Italy and in particular in a very beautiful area of Lombardy between Lake Maggiore, Lake Como and the splendid mountains that frame it. In high school, I decided to attend advertising graphics and at this juncture, I discovered "photography" when at the age of 18 I got my diploma I decided that I would look for a job only in this field that had fascinated me so much in school desks. I was lucky, my first job in a photographic studio introduced me to those who eventually became my partners in WeddingStudio, an adventure that we started in 2012, born of a common passion for wedding photography. Since then I am happy, it is really true what they say "if you like your job you will never work a day in your life"; telling emotions for me is a joy and seeing the satisfaction in the eyes of my clients at the delivery of work pure happiness. [Milan Wedding Photographer]
Taking pictures. It makes me happy. I started having fun at 8 yrs old when I got a Kodak Instamatic. My interest in wedding photography came shooting some friends' wedding, and has not run out yet. It's like breathing to me: I can't do without. I don't think the images before making them: I observe and snap, I follow the emotions and the light, in a continuous search for an unusual frame. Every marriage is an encounter with the beauty of a new story to remember, which totally involves my gaze and my heart and eventually becomes part of my own experience; and at the end a part of me remains, with photographs, inside this story. [Varese 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]
My name is Mirko, I was born in Foligno where I live and work. Since I was a child I started to love photography, especially landscapes. It was a way for me to see wonderful places and to bring into focus aspects of my days and life. After some time, landscapes were no longer enough. I felt the need to interact with my subjects, to go deeper into things, to discover and to unravel, through my shots, the most real and often hidden aspects of what I saw. I started photographing people. I try to reveal their soul and personality. I love to portray especially young couples, families, children. I specialize mainly in photography for events and weddings: not only a profession but the desire to tell emotions and stories, to keep alive these unique and unrepeatable moments. Photographing means writing with light. It means capturing details, immersing oneself in the emotions of others, sharing moments of life and transforming them into evocative and suggestive images. I like to empathize and share emotions, immerse myself in stories, walk part of the way with the people who choose to look at their lives through my shots. My discreet and constant presence offers a genuine, true, and intense account of the most beautiful day of your life. My desire to tell stories through images stretches to the world of companies and businesses. With the creation of commercials and of promotional and institutional videos. These are fundamental tools that strengthen the brand and communicate the mission, vision, values, and flagship products of the company, to ensure an effective presence on different platforms, from television to social networks and internet sites. I still love environment and landscape photography, in line with my great passion for nature, for uncontaminated landscapes, for walks in the quiet of the mountain. I think that a personal encounter is irreplaceable, to create synergies and mutual understanding. Hence, I invite you to come and visit me in my studio, to have the pleasure of getting to know each other and collaborating. I wait for you! [Perugia 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]
Hi, I’m Stefano Ferrier, sole photographer based in Milano, Italy. I work in Italy, Europe and worldwide. I’ve started my photography career in 2010, after various vicissitudes I went on to learn my studies in Photography from the Italian Institute of Photography, since 2000 to present a school leader in the field of vocational training in Italy. The studies about story of photography were for me a discovery on what had happened since 1839 up today; then I laid down the basics for my vocational path, a path that never ends since there are always new things to learn. There's also a lesson in every Wedding story. My beloved style is photojournalism, I love spontaneous and evocative emotions, sometimes i try to convert these moments in a creative beautiful way to capture things differently, I always challenge myself. Art has an advantage over the observed reality, has the power to transform it and surpass it. [Milan Wedding Photographer]
I live in Milan with my lovely family, my wife and my two children. I printed my first pictures in the darkroom at school when I was 12, and since then I have always considered photography to be my personal magic. After passionate studies and a University degree in theoretical physics I turned photography into my job and now run a wedding and fashion photography studio in Milan, Italy. I believe that the deep study of arts history has lead me to defining my individual style and my idea of a picture's composition. On a parallel track, after my photography education at the Istituto Italiano di Fotografia in Milan I worked for two years in the studio of a renowned architecture and still life photographer in Milan, in order to learn this job and perfect my technical skills. Photography is a means for communicating my emotions and feelings. Just as a dancer, a musician or a writer create culture through their works, to me photography is a means through which I can artistically express my sensitivity. When shooting weddings, I like to become invisible among the guests of a ceremony in order be able to capture the most sincere moments. To be able to do that, you must be discreet, kind and very technically skilled. A single picture can tell more things than a film or a book. Whenever this is accomplished, I am proud to be a photographer. As a wedding photographer, I approximately shoot thirty weddings a year and during my career I have shot two hundred and I regularly participate in photography exhibitions in Italy. [Milan Wedding Photographer]
I first got interested in photography while living in London, though it's hard not to with such an artistic community. After receiving my first DSLR as a present, I fell in love with the art and began reading numerous books on the subject. In 2013 I finished my photography course and now hold a Diploma of Photography from the International course providers "The Photography Institute". As a child, I loved going camping, surfing, and playing baseball, so I think that is where my passion for Landscape photography came from. But after looking for new photographic challenges, I had the opportunity to shoot a friend's wedding, since then I have loved being involved in one of the biggest days of the relationship of a couple and have now been a professional wedding & portrait photographer since 2014.
