When, at the age of 18, I entered Angela Merkel’s office to present myself, I didn’t realise 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 and photographed press conference, interviews and sometimes I worked as a paparazzo, too.
I had the honour to photograph Bill Clinton, Bono Vox from U2 and many more personalities. At the time it was about the single PHOTO – now it’s about the STORY.
Short time 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 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 10, Lena is 5 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 which 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 what has always touched me. A day full of love, tears, laughters, good food and wine and, of course, dancing.
I remember the first time when Emma opened our wedding album. I was observing her while she was browsing the spreads and I realised 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 how and pride. This value is priceless. I’d like to talk with you about the photographs of your wedding.
