Caterina Errani


The love for reportage photography was born out of passion when I bought my first camera, a Nikon FM10 film in Guatemala, almost twenty years ago.
I started photographing a few precious, intense and unrepeatable moments of my travels, from the most remote areas of Himalayan Asia to the most boundless areas of Tierra del Fuego, inextricably sealing my two strongest passions: travel and photographic reportage. My reportage photography was therefore born as a loving language, with the need to give small pieces of dream, enhance and transmit the emotions that bring people's hearts close together.
In reportage photography, the moment reigns everywhere sovereign, as well as in the most important day of the celebration of Love.
It is precisely in the instant, which is the shortest imaginable moment, the lapse where a thousand spells occur, and where memories bring amazement and enchantment for a lifetime.
For more than ten years I have captured the most beautiful moments on the most beautiful day of the couple's life, in Italy and abroad, gathering moments that make that day and one's own life unique.
Every wedding deserves to be told through eyes and heart, this is the purpose of my art: to tell the beauty and emotions of your most important day and to make this precious moment aeternal. Over the years I have exhibited my works in various exhibitions, and I am reported as a photographer on VOGUE.

And now something about my travels: I have explored the world, in lands dotted with faces, landscapes and silences, where peace and beauty kidnap the heart and nourish emotions.
Ladak, Mongolia, Nepal, Cambodia, Patagonia, New Guinea, Myanmar, Guatemala, Namibia, India, Ceylon are just some of the countries where I was given the photographic emotion and I, therefore, shared it time to time as a gift.

To those who have come to read these last lines I would like to give a story, a look: imagine you are at dusk, in the garden of one of the countless monasteries of the Ex Burma, or in the plain of the Golden Pagodas, or in any street in the countryside .. you find yourself with your nose up, without realizing it: each person, child or adult has a piece of thread in his hand, and with skill of movement they float the small kite in the sky. Your gaze now shifts in their gaze. This is absolute sweetness. And this is the indelible memory of the country.

Silvia & Angelo

When I asked for advice on a photographer for our wedding I already knew what we wanted: a discrete figure, no posed photos, and someone who knew how to capture emotions through the camera. I was immediately named you. Still today , after 3 years from our wedding, I recommend you to all my friends for their special day. Caterina, you are not only an exceptional photographer but you are also - and above all - an extraordinary soul, capable of giving a touch of magic to the situations, to the things and people you portray. We would choose you 1000 more times :)

Manola & Marco

Caterina, we fell in love with you and your photos since we came personally to visit you and sow your portfolio: you warmly hosted us in your studio, and showed us your art. We understood it was you who had to report our day since a photo that was not even about bride and groom moved us. Our main concern was the fact we do not like cameras, and we wanted to have a photographer that could work discretely. We both are very private persons, and not at ease in front of a camera. What we did not want was to have photos showing us clumsy, but with you there has been no need of explaining anything. We did not realize you were taking pictures, and the same has been for our guests. The result has been translated in beautiful pictures, candid snapshots documenting smiley people and witnessing a day full of true emotions. Our guests after years still ask about you ! You and your photos are still in your heart.
