My name is Andrea Trimarchi and I’m a wedding photographer, specialised in photojournalistic style.
I was born in Messina, Sicily in 1975, I grew up in the countryside – in a village called Santa Teresa di Riva – I have now lived in Palermo for many years with my wife Laura and our dogs Mud and Akira.
I have always been passionate about cinema, a subject that I graduated in from DAMS (the School of Arts, Music and Performance) in Palermo (in fact every now and again I direct short films), this has definitely influenced my way of looking through the lens.
I am registered with ANFM (the Italian National Association of Wedding Photographers) since 2014, with the double objective of growing professionally and comparing myself with the best colleagues in the Italian territory, to be able to offer my future clients a guarantee* and the best visual techniques and elegance possible.

A quintessential moment that captures the joy of childhood discovery.
This image has a number of compositional elements including good leading lines and a sense of chaotic symmetry...primarily the mirror, door, and framed picture. Of course there’s no denying the power of the moment as mom cleans his cheek with tissue. Let me guess... she’s wiping away lipstick from her kiss. It’s a quiet moment, a decisive moment, a tender “farewell,” for now at least. Meanwhile dad, at far left, urges his son to the ceremony. Soon he will receive another kiss from his bride. I suspect that lipstick will remain as is.
The photographer made a graceful image that creates a solitary mood and gives a sense of place with strong composition. The empty clothespins add to the absence.
I’m pleased that the photographer noticed this beautiful (albeit humorous) scene of bride and groom…and child. I can imagine the photographer whispering wishes into the back of the camera for this moment to unfurl. All it took was that lone upturned sole for an image that warms the soul with a smile.
Seen this before, but these driving photos are always fun.
