Everyone always says that your wedding day is all about you. But let’s face it; that’s not always actually the case. Many couples stress over guest lists, planning, expenses, and all the frills and traditions of your standard large wedding that they may or may not even be interested in.

Oftentimes when people are considering a venue for their weddings, they search for a location away from home, whether that be ten minutes or ten hours, all just to find what they already have: a place that holds meaning for them, that feels comfortable, or that they find special and memorable. But what could hold more memory, meaning, and importance than your own home? For those looking for that perfect venue, it may not be any further than beyond your threshold.Read more

RAVES, REVIEWS, AND RECOMMENDATIONS

Dear Luca, While planning our Italian wedding from Texas, we searched online for a photographer, thinking it would be a long and difficult process. But as soon we saw your website and portfolio, there was no doubt in our minds that we had to speak with you. The creativity you show, the colors you capture, the stories you tell with your pictures - were just unique. The photos exceeded our expectations, so much so that we ended up asking for two albums, not one! On top of the wonderful pictures, your passion and dedication to work are outstanding. We want to thank you again for the patience with which you interacted with us prior to the wedding, for the way you participated in our big day taking shot after shot but never being intrusive, and for capturing each and every one of our guests - at their best. Also on our day, we thoroughly enjoyed the photo session in the villa and gardens, which gave us a chance to be with each other in a beautiful setting, almost forgetting you were with us. We treasure all of the pictures (yes even the ones you think are not perfect!) as we will always be able to remember and feel those moments again. Thank you again! Giovanna and Dan.

Dear Luca, Few months have passed since what many people probably consider the most important day of their life. We apologize for not having been in contact before, but after the frantic moments spent to organise the wedding it seems now easier to cherish our special day and focus on what is left, in addition to the many strong memories and deep feelings: photos. Let’s start from the beginning. We initially contacted few wedding photographers but none of them fully convinced us. We then realised that in Schio, the city where we were planning to get married, there was Luca Fabbian. I have to admit that I have passion for photography and therefore I was a bit fussy about finding the right photographer for our wedding. As soon as we met you, Luca, and you showed us few albums and your portfolio, we immediately realised we were in good hands. We loved your style, the way you can tell a story through your photos, your being professional and discreet. All this was successfully reproduced at our wedding. I think you managed to capture beautifully every moment and feelings of the day. All photos are special, beautifully composed and processed, original and alive. Not only they recall what happened, but the photos can speak of the emotions we went through: from the anxious preparations in the morning to the joyful formality of the ceremony, to the colourful happiness of the party. I think that a photo is finished when it is printed. And when photos are presented in such an elegant and stylish format such as the YoungBook they really become alive. The album is just gorgeous, it is a pleasure to touch, to smell, to see. We would also like to congratulate on your recent photography awards, some of which accomplished with our photos. It is for us a privilege and we feel we are part of it. Lastly, we really appreciate your professionality and experience in dealing the whole event, before, during and after. We appreciated you could cover our requests and we were impressed by your quick processing and delivery of the photos. We really feel honoured to have had our wedding photos taken by you. We thank you immensely for capturing so perfectly the spirit of our wedding and giving us unique memories that will last forever. Thank you Luca! Chiara & Alekos

Hi Fabrizio, we had participated in your photography course and when we decided to get married we had no doubts about the choice of the photographer! We were sure that the passion you transmitted to us during the course would be the same that you would have used to capture our day. With these few lines we just wanted to say: THANK YOU! Thank you because you immediately got in tune with us. You proved very helpful, giving us valuable advice to make everything go for the best. Thank you because you started your work long before the day of the ceremony. Your inspections at the church, at the villa and where we would have prepared ourselves, were fundamental for not having surprises or unexpected events on the wedding day ... you had calculated everything! Thanks for your "stolen" shots: during the whole wedding you have been discreet, managing to “blend in” perfectly among our guests but at the same time always present to capture unforgettable moments. Thank you because you stayed until the end, not missing a moment of the whole day, indeed, by looking at your photos you made us relive moments that we didn't even remember. Thank you for your professionalism which has been truly priceless. Thanks because the result left us speechless, your shots captured the spirit of marriage. Your photos will always remind us of how fantastic our day was! Thank you! Maria Letizia and Fabio by looking at your photos you made us relive moments that we didn't even remember.

Hi Fabri! Sometimes I think you will whistle your ears .. we happen to talk about you with great pleasure to friends, relatives and acquaintances! Just the other day a John's aunt came to visit us and there was an opportunity to show her our marvelous wedding album. Yes, she has had the spontaneous reaction they all have: a great emotion! She felt catapulted on that fantastic day, she seemed to be there again! This is solely your merit! To you that you have been able to seize the moment, the spontaneity and the detail; that you have been tireless, available, humble and creative; that you have been able to advise us to the best for the creation of our eternal album! You are a "teacher" as my father says, always present among the guests but never intrusive! Thank you!! We can not do anything but join all our friends and relatives to tell you that the photos of our wedding album thrill us every time, page after page make us relive that day as a story made of only images, from the first to the last moment. We will have a memory forever of all those happy, ridiculous, stolen moments; black and white photos that enhance details, tears and hugs. Greta & Giovanni

Dear Fabrizio. Even as you described Stefania of Villa Cavriani, to advise us various names that had worked in the villa, Massimo and I had understood that you were the right photographer for our wedding .... and we were absolutely wrong !!! In fact, from the first moments that we met you, you immediately created a feeling, which continued on the occasion of your visit to our families, some time before the event and which was decidedly consolidated on June 21 ... the day more nice of our life !!! Thank you for making everything natural, simple and spontaneous and for making really beautiful photos. You managed to capture our most exciting moments ... laughter, tears, dances, hugs ... Thank you for having documented everything, without ever being intrusive and indeed, moving between us with an infinite delicacy. Thank you from our friends and our families, whom you loved so much, for your professionalism and friendliness, but above all thanks to me and Massimo, for being a fundamental part of our marriage. A huge hug Manuela and Massimo

Hi Fabrizio! We are writing to the man and friend in the first place, not only to the photographer. Your photos have a communicative force that often transcends the moment of the shoot, but above all they convey what you are - they are kind, attentive and caring, strong and incisive, sweet. And exactly because of your unique way of perceiving the world we shared and have chosen, other than offering our compliments for your professionalism and technique, we want to talk about the journey you led us through. Sitting in your studio, imagining how it would be, you made us emotional, you literally conjured the scenes before our very eyes. You took us by the hand, you led us in the most beautiful day of our lives well before you we reached the established date. You gave us peace, you managed our embarrassment about being at the centre of the attention, you guided us, you allowed us to feel at ease and, as a result, to be spontaneous and serene. It was only then that you took your camera and you got down to work. You were an important point of reference throughout our day, for us and for our loved ones, a discreet presence, but also an attentive and helpful one. We fully enjoyed the day, energized and happy for what we were experiencing and we had a great time as I am sure you had too. The final outcome turned to be wonderful photos, where we recognize ourselves in and through them relive the emotions of that moment - with such an impact that we continue to remain breathless. Every shot has its own history, its own emotion and its very own beauty. 'Thank you' is what we are writing, but words are not enough to express everything. Fabio e Milena

The wedding album you made us could not get more excited! It is a true masterpiece. Still today looking at the photographs we experience the same emotion of that day. You are a true master, you have known not only to grasp the magic of that day, but also our spirit, our desire to have something special that forever crystallize our promise of love. There are no obvious, trivial photographs: everything has surprised us with the originality, the great naturalness, the extreme care of every smallest detail, the way in which you have been able to magically capture the smiles, gestures, expressions of happiness not only ours, but of all the relatives and friends who shared that wonderful day with us. There really are no words to describe your beautiful photographs!

Fabrizio, it was a pleasure to have you as the photographer of our wedding! We met you during the wedding of two of our best friends and we remained impressed by your passion and style. We immediately decided that you would become also "our" wedding photographer. In just few seconds you understood what kind of person we are and during the wedding you were able to enhance the beauty of every simple detail. You respected the wish we had to create a simple ceremony and party and many of the participants appreciated your discretion and kindness. Thanks to you we will have the fortune to see all special shots that you made that day in order to live again moments of pure joy and happyness. We will hope to see you soon! Many thanks and regards, Maria Chiara and Alessandro

Attilio e Chiara

Photo by Fabrizio Demasi

Hello Fabrizio, I've known you for several years because you've always done the photo shoot for the family company catalog, in a sense you can say that you helped to create what is now an annual "tradition"! When I decided to get married, in a hurry for another, I had no doubt about who to choose as a photographer of the event. When Attilio and I came to define the details of the day in your studio you told us not to worry, that you would follow us and that we would not even notice you. And so it was. You chased us all over Verona in the pouring rain of January, being always present in the most important moments and also in those apparently more insignificant but, with the intervention of time have become precious to reconstruct that important day, like a puzzle. The amazement of my friend Giovanni when he saw me in a wedding dress, the shoe that slips off just as I descend the stairs, caress the dog of our friend Dolores, when I look at those shots come back to mind together with visual memories also moods and sensations. As bride and groom we have not been very good organization but you have also been able to call us to order at the right time to make wonderful portraits of the two of us with natural light and I thank you again because now, one of those photos, stands on the My bedside table and follows me on every journey. Since the wedding is celebrated only once in life and you can not say "I would choose you as a photographer next time", we confirm you now for the fiftieth anniversary! Thanks to your professionalism and above all to your artistic sensibility, today we can relive the 4th of January 2014 every time we browse the album. Chiara
