Padua wedding and elopement photography by Valeria Berti of Veneto Italy

Valeria Berti has inherited from her father the passion for photography. It all started when she was ten years old and got in her hands an analogical Nikon. This passion has grown over time, becoming her job, keeping alive and developing nevertheless love for photography which was driving her from her youngest age. She is also a graphic designer and loves the extreme artisanal care of her photos’ post-production. Her approach to wedding photography is a reportage-based one, as she loves seizing spontaneous situations with a smart and fresh style. “I love to capture the story of your wedding with my heart first of all and then with my camera, to be able to relive it even after many years”, says Valeria. Her photography tells your story in a sincere and elegant way; a story in pictures, which stops the most beautiful memories and emotions of your marriage and your life with photography. Her way of photographing is absolutely natural, spontaneous, emotional and creative. “Photographs are our memory over time when our memories begin to get lost in the passing of time.” She firmly believes in this sentence. Although Padua is her home, she often works in Venice, also covering weddings throughout Italy and internationally. [Padua Wedding Photographer]

Portrait of Mattia Camozzi, Venice Documentary Wedding and Elopement 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]

The wedding album you made us could not get more excited! It is a true masterpiece. Still today looking at the photographs we experience the same emotion of that day. You are a true master, you have known not only to grasp the magic of that day, but also our spirit, our desire to have something special that forever crystallize our promise of love. There are no obvious, trivial photographs: everything has surprised us with the originality, the great naturalness, the extreme care of every smallest detail, the way in which you have been able to magically capture the smiles, gestures, expressions of happiness not only ours, but of all the relatives and friends who shared that wonderful day with us. There really are no words to describe your beautiful photographs!

Dear Luca, We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for our wonderful photo album. You were able to catch the emotions of the most important day in our life and to capture the love in our eyes. The lights and the colours of your photos make your works lively. You have made our wedding day unforgettable and immortal with your professionalism and your silent presence. Many many thanks again!

Dear Luca, While planning our Italian wedding from Texas, we searched online for a photographer, thinking it would be a long and difficult process. But as soon we saw your website and portfolio, there was no doubt in our minds that we had to speak with you. The creativity you show, the colors you capture, the stories you tell with your pictures - were just unique. The photos exceeded our expectations, so much so that we ended up asking for two albums, not one! On top of the wonderful pictures, your passion and dedication to work are outstanding. We want to thank you again for the patience with which you interacted with us prior to the wedding, for the way you participated in our big day taking shot after shot but never being intrusive, and for capturing each and every one of our guests - at their best. Also on our day, we thoroughly enjoyed the photo session in the villa and gardens, which gave us a chance to be with each other in a beautiful setting, almost forgetting you were with us. We treasure all of the pictures (yes even the ones you think are not perfect!) as we will always be able to remember and feel those moments again. Thank you again! Giovanna and Dan.

Dear Luca, Few months have passed since what many people probably consider the most important day of their life. We apologize for not having been in contact before, but after the frantic moments spent to organise the wedding it seems now easier to cherish our special day and focus on what is left, in addition to the many strong memories and deep feelings: photos. Let’s start from the beginning. We initially contacted few wedding photographers but none of them fully convinced us. We then realised that in Schio, the city where we were planning to get married, there was Luca Fabbian. I have to admit that I have passion for photography and therefore I was a bit fussy about finding the right photographer for our wedding. As soon as we met you, Luca, and you showed us few albums and your portfolio, we immediately realised we were in good hands. We loved your style, the way you can tell a story through your photos, your being professional and discreet. All this was successfully reproduced at our wedding. I think you managed to capture beautifully every moment and feelings of the day. All photos are special, beautifully composed and processed, original and alive. Not only they recall what happened, but the photos can speak of the emotions we went through: from the anxious preparations in the morning to the joyful formality of the ceremony, to the colourful happiness of the party. I think that a photo is finished when it is printed. And when photos are presented in such an elegant and stylish format such as the YoungBook they really become alive. The album is just gorgeous, it is a pleasure to touch, to smell, to see. We would also like to congratulate on your recent photography awards, some of which accomplished with our photos. It is for us a privilege and we feel we are part of it. Lastly, we really appreciate your professionality and experience in dealing the whole event, before, during and after. We appreciated you could cover our requests and we were impressed by your quick processing and delivery of the photos. We really feel honoured to have had our wedding photos taken by you. We thank you immensely for capturing so perfectly the spirit of our wedding and giving us unique memories that will last forever. Thank you Luca! Chiara & Alekos
