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.
Award Winning Photos
The Wedding Photojournalist Association proudly recognizes the accomplishments and creative excellence of Francesco. The following awards have been earned by Francesco from the WPJA. These achievements come with great merit considering the high level of competition that a member faces in the contests.
A spontaneous moment like this one can really stand out. It is more rare to see such a touching kiss with males, so this photo was strong for me.
This looks like nature has invaded her head, and the way it blends with the background makes it a humorous and harmonious image. This is art imitating nature.
Here's a good example of how good photojournalism can create a voice for a moment, turning a whisper into something we can all "hear." This image works because it presents a multi-layered vista of traditional photo elements. Of course, there is clearly a moment here, but look at the leading lines that presents the subject and how the objects at left and right keep us within the frame long enough to see the reflection in the mirror and the shape of a small object atop the dresser at left that mimics the outstretched arms behind the bride.
This was just a classic reception image – nice moment, good reaction from the kid – it all came together to tell a little story. Good job!
Classic moment that would have fit well into the Kids category. Great having action and reaction in the same frame. A little tighter framing (or cropping) would make it jump even more.
I love that the people on the left side of the frame are more interested in the girl playing volleyball. Fun, unexpected moment. More careful framing (people cut off at left and center) would have made the image even better.
This is a humorous photo that exists just outside the borders of playful mimic. It's a wonderful juxtaposition of textures, the flower arrangement and the bride's curls. It's one of those photos that "works," simply because it works.
Great classic moment, confetti spilling down, the flash of the camera, and solid composition at the peak moment of the kiss. It all comes together. If there's a weakness, it's that it's expected, which is why I don't rank it higher, but still, good execution of the moment. I'm sure the client would love to have this image.
I love all the layers to this photograph, from the bride and groom to the little boy at right to the crowd beyond and the flash in the background. The photographer captures nice emotion throughout.
Very well composed and the background helps to make a very good image.
The bride’s head thrown back and laughter is palpable in this picture. Set among the reception scene, seeing all of the friends and family react, it really is a fabulous take on the moment.

You really brought my dream Italian wedding to life. Even though you hadn’t visited Petritoli before, you captured the beauty and setting perfectly, and this shone through your beautiful photos! You were incredibly discreet throughout the whole day, and no request was too great. The highlight came when you suggested climbing the Bell Tower as the sun was setting, to capture the most amazing photos of the day. A big thank you Francesco!
