I’m a Rome Wedding Photographer and I “stole” memories of worldwide couples since 12 years. Layered by reportage photography, travel and surf, I started shooting my friends-scape weddings to have the chance to pay my outdoor adventures and my degree at European Institute of Design. Over the years I collected experiences in different fields of photography, very precious for my professional growth. In the meantime I founded “Framelines” , Rome based photography studio, and documenting weddings around Italy and abroad became my full time profession. Constantly in touch with a multicultural environment and having the opportunity to discover amazing venues, I consider myself a privileged witness. That's why I deeply love my job.

Lazio and Rome wedding and elopement reportage photography by Luca Caparrelli of Italy

It started 15 years ago when I bought my first professional camera, the Nikon d700, with the earnings from working at the Roman summer events. In the beginning, I experimented with various types of photography from portraits to landscapes to reportage. One day of many years ago.. I went to see a historical re-enactment of a battle between ancient Romans and I handed over my photos to the organizers after a careful selection and retouching. They were struck by the beauty of my photos and in a short time, I began as an official photographer of historical re-enactments! I started practicing as a wedding photographer as an apprentice for some matrimonial studios and started working as a freelance for some communication agencies in corporate events. After the first years of practice, I found my “swing” or my “style” with which I later specialized in wedding photography in events and portraits. With a great passion for some years, I felt the desire to share my knowledge and teach photography. I designed practice photography courses as an opportunity for me especially at a human level to test myself and grow. I thank all the people who have been joining my courses also nowadays and in the well being! [Rome 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]

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!

My career as a working photographer began when I was a journalist. It often occurred that I would abandon the pen in favour of the camera, in order to adequately express my need to tell stories through images. In fact, this approach led me to focus on the subject of photo reporting as I completed specialized studies in photojournalism. Avant Garde Studio came into existence as a natural result of my learning process. I love doing weddings. I love working with couples in love!!!! I actually feel very privileged to capture all those precious moments during a wedding day, while enjoying the freedom of expression and creativity that I experience through photography.

Arezzo elopement and wedding photography by Simone Bacci of Tuscany Italy

Simone Bacci was born in Arezzo in the October of 1975. His first camera is a Kodak Disc 4000 that whilst used during school tours for normal shoots, got Simone interested into photography. With this ‘curiosity’ aside, Simone carried on many international travels on work in the leisure sector. It is during one of these last business journeys that he met a person who relight his curiosity. From curiosity to profession with the main factor being passion. After attending several classes and workshops, most of these focusing on wedding and ceremonies photography, in 2007 he opens his first professional studio.His first jobs are full of enthusiasm but turned off by a formal approach to weddings, with static and posing pictures.Feeling himself embarrassed by being photographed, Simone develops the attitude to feel in the shoes of the couples in front of him during one of their most important day in life. He therefore changes direction, leaving the couples free to do what they prefer, aiming at capturing their emotions in a fully natural manner delivering a reportage oriented approach to weddings. This is how his stories are born. [Arezzo Wedding Photographer]

Veneto and Venice Wedding and Elopement Photographer Carlo Bettuolo, of Italy

I'm a wedding photographer based in Venice Italy but I work all over Italy and abroad. I've been working in the wedding industry for the past ten years and I love what I do, I love to capture the happiest moments of my client's life and being part of all of that! My style is called "wedding reportage" or "wedding photojournalism" which means that I avoid static poses and I prefer to catch the real moments and even if I'll be with bride and groom for the entire wedding, they won't notice me. This way they can act normally without feeling weird in front of a camera. [Venice Wedding Photographer]

I am a Chicago-based photographer living in the Bucktown neighborhood in Chicago with my husband, and closest friend, Shawn.  When I was thirteen I picked up my mother's camera and started documenting our lives. The one hour photo lab down the street turned into hours and hours in the b&w darkroom in undergrad, then the color darkroom, then a Masters in photography. Today I still find myself in the darkroom every day with my students at New Trier High School. Photography is more than what I do, it is who I am. I teach so that I may pass that passion onto future generations. I am at home and at ease when I am working with and photographing people; it has always made complete sense to me. I take pride in making my clients feel comfortable during our shoots, even the most camera shy. I have an admiration for beauty, peculiarity, and the everyday stuff of life. I let my intuition lead me and I do not force situations to occur. I allow moments to unfold and adjust myself to the situation.    I am humbled and honored to photograph the memories and milestones in people's lives. I know that I will always do my best to document people as they are, so they will look back on the moments and still feel all the love and warmth that went into creating those memories.   , [Chicago Wedding Photographer]

Tuscany and Livorno wedding and elopement photography by Raul Gori of Italy

My professional preparation as a wedding photographer was handed down through my father, a photographer at the time, he taught me the real manual using his old Pentax film. The move to new technologies was natural so I decided to buy my first reflex camera and then stay up to date, following various photographic studios and new courses as a wedding photographer. I simply answer this question: it makes me feel good and I like to describe, tell the story of two people, through the importance of light and the value of shadows. Mainly I love to make people feel good with whom I have the privilege of describing those moments so important and invaluable. I take care of every project, from start to finish, paying the utmost attention to every detail, trying to give the couple the maximum in terms of professionalism. The need to express myself led me to study photography and, as I come to explore it more deeply, I also discovered myself. [Livorno Wedding Photographer]

Udine wedding photography by Rachele Mosolo of Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Italy

Rachele Mosolo, born in 1990. I define myself as an enthusiast of things. A hardened dreamer who has always been passionate about photography, good music, travel, new cultures, people and to touch things by hand, for me true beauty is the simple reality of the world, sweet or cruel it may be. I love the reportage and fully immerse myself in what surrounds me. I photograph any situation along this line, I think it is the best way to create eternal memories: those photos that even after years make you relive the emotion of the first time. I love true love and I want to photograph it "up close": I like the idea of being a witness of your emotions and I want to tell them with feeling, delicacy, simplicity, and sense of reality.
