Piedmont and Verbano Cusio Ossola wedding and elopement photography by Nicola Genati of Italy

I’m wedding photographer, I live in Italy but I travel often for weddings. Tell me where you’ll be declaring your love, and I’ll be there. I’m looking forward to giving you a photography experience that is filled with creativity, laughter, and romance! I still believe in fairy tales and a true believer that there is nothing better in life than a real love. I love my work and take pictures, I'm grateful to be living my dream! Capturing an image which is unique, tangible, and fills the viewer with a sense of joy is just one of my many goals in working with you.

Piedmont wedding and elopement photography by Emanuele Lince of Alessandria - Italy

Emanuele is an Italian wedding photographer. He was born in 1986 in Novi Ligure. He has a degree in political science – political, social and economic journalism – he writes for some time in the columns of several weeklies. At the same time, he refines, collaborating with some companies, the passion for the image first as a videographer and then to the passion of photography, for a few years as an assistant to some photographers – as it used to do – and then make his job. He doesn’t like “specialization” labels in photography, trying his hand at almost all genres. The “fil rouge” of his works is a strong attention and propensity for the story that surrounds him. Wedding photography enters his career, not by accident. Moved by the curiosity to always tell new stories, he finds in the Wedding sector an infinite source of inspiration that partly combines with some advertising campaigns related to the sector. His approach has led him to be also appreciated in advertising. Always attentive to the world around him, he combines in his photography a modern language to the great classics of cinema and fine art photography. [Alessandria Wedding Photographer]

I have always photographed. At the very beginning, I studied architecture, my obsession was to take perfect photographs. My problem was always the people who “soiled” the places, squares, and buildings that I photographed during my travels or exits. But then something changed. A bit like in "Ciàula discovers the Moon", the novel by Pirandello in which the miner boy once remains ecstatic by the beauty of the Moon despite having always had it in front his eyes but never really looked at, I fell in love with people. I studied photojournalism and learned how to tell the beauty of reality and people even in their imperfection, which is an essential part of the uniqueness and soul of everything. Over the years I then specialized in wedding photojournalism and family portraits. Basically, reportage photography consists of telling an event, a situation, a story. This approach applied by an important event such as a marriage or even a simple family moment is much more alive and personal, truer. Henri Cartier-Bresson, one of the forefathers of photojournalism, once said that to photograph is to place the mind, the eyes and the heart on the same target line. I have always tried to make this sentence my own because if you manage to converge in a single photo, in addition to what you see the energy of a moment, the intensity of an emotion, the perception of an atmosphere, well, that's amazing!

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...

Milan wedding and elopement photography by Michela Bocciarelli, of Lombardy, Italy

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.

WHAT EXACTLY DOES IT MEAN TO ELOPE?

We all know that the economy can go through some hard times, and be somewhat reminiscent of past recessions.

Thank you Maurizio for capturing our wedding day. We wanted a reportage style book that would capture genuine moments without having to pose, so it was important for us to choose someone with a strong artist identity and a signature style. You did an amazing job at delivering a true work of art with beautiful shots throughout the day. Martina & Crhis
