I love writing stories and they always come out better when I use my camera. Lights, contrasts, colours, depth... these are the letters of my alphabet, the alphabet I use to tell stories of love, journeys, business ventures, special occasions and fleeting moments, stories which I observe and capture in black and white and then add other colours to. When I was small, I was fascinated by black and white pictures and portraits, I would lovingly cut them out and collect them. I follow my instinct, I don’t put them in poses. Maybe I don’t really realise what I’m doing. I follow my intuition. I love capturing sudden moments, epiphanies, as the writer James Joyce called them, those instants when people and things reveal themselves. I regularly do yoga. Whenever I can, I take my dog, Kiwi, out for a walk. I adore films, black and white ones obviously. I love tattoos. I love dreaming. More than anything, I love freedom. It guides me in my work and life. My home is on the shore of a lake. My studio is the world. [Veneto Wedding Photographer]

I was born in 1976 and I live near Venice. I have been a photographer since the age of fifteen, when I started to take pictures in black and white and develop them in the dark room. This has been for me an important experience. To really understand what photography is you have to spend time in the dark room: light, films, papers. Today, digital technology has changed the cameras and the post production. But nothing in photography has changed for real. In my working life I have taken pictures of hundreds of marriages. I wish to all married couples to have many happy days after the wedding. Visual communication is a responsibility and each photographer is responsible for the visual culture of the people. When I close one eye and approach the viewfinder, I always think that the "clack" of the mirror is a part of me that I give to the others. [Venice Wedding Photographer]

Florence wedding and elopement photography by Laura Barbera of Tuscany, Italy

Hi, I’m Laura! Or maybe I should say “Hi, I’m a lucky girl” because my work is my greatest passion! I'm an Italian wedding photographer, based in my beloved Tuscany, but I love traveling and having the opportunity to tell the story of your wedding or elopement day wherever you want. I love spontaneity and people who have the courage to express their emotions, so my photographic style is a mix of photojournalistic wedding photography and romantic couple portraits, not posed but natural. I'm available for destination weddings in Italy: Tuscany, Val d'Orcia, Cinque Terre, Amalfi Coast, Venice and wherever you want me to be with you. I have always been, since childhood, deeply attracted to people, intrigued by their actions, their thoughts, and especially by what they feel and express. I went to school with my little Nikon camera, one of the most fitting gift that my parents could do! I filled rolls with faces, situations, emotions … review photos helped me to settle the most beautiful memories. I remember that I tried to photograph the joy, the student spirit, the complicity, friendship, love … and still, today, reviewing those shots, I feel again the same feelings and emotions. In this way, I understand that the photograph has enormous power in the life of each of us. When I grow up, all this turns into a job, I’m a psychologist psychotherapist specializing in the use of photography as a tool of psychological insight. The transition to becoming a wedding photographer was by accident… To tell the stories of the people through images, was the completion and integration of my passions. I love… …Cooking, as the conviviality shared with loved ones …The summer, when I sip a glass of chilled white wine on the beach at sunset …The winter, when the noisy storms contrast with the silence of a book, a sofa, and a plaid …Playing hide and seek with my cat, I swear! …And say what I think even when it can sound inconvenient! I could not live without… …My few but trusted friends …My car …The fear that gives me the courage I think… …The sensibility, the determination, the curiosity, the accord with own emotions, the knowledge, the continuous research to discover and to expose ourselves, can move any mountain! …The Love, the real one, that has nothing to do with our unfulfilled needs, exist …But to live it authentically, first of all, we have to learn loving ourselves!

I was lucky, my first job in a photographic studio introduced me to those who eventually became my partners in WeddingStudio, an adventure that we started in 2012, born of a common passion for wedding photography.

I was born in 1970 in a lovely place close to Lake Como and Lake Maggiore, beautiful lakes of Northern Italy. Since I was a little boy I have been fascinated by “photography” and it is now twenty years that I have been working in this field. In the last fifteen years I have been working as a photographer, especially for weddings. In 2012, in Milan, I set up “WeddingStudio” together with other colleagues. I take photos of wedding days giving a “ photo journalistic” cut to my pictures. That is why I define myself as a “modern storyteller”. Telling stories and touching people through my pictures: that is what I love to do. That is my job and my passion. And when there is passion in what you do, you see the difference! I like thinking and telling about your wedding in a different way: the newlyweds have to live and enjoy every moment of that day and share every moment with their loved ones. That is why I like to become “invisible” and catch details, shades, glances, moods and going on gestures. My job is a wonderful job and every time that one of my pictures can stir up emotions or recollections in people looking at it I think that considering it as “wonderful” is still not enough...

I love to photograph weddings and elopements for couples in the Apulian countryside, but also to travel and discover new places, meet people and experience new cultures.

Perugia wedding and elopement photography by Mirko Vegliò, Umbria Italy

My name is Mirko, I was born in Foligno where I live and work. Since I was a child I started to love photography, especially landscapes. It was a way for me to see wonderful places and to bring into focus aspects of my days and life. After some time, landscapes were no longer enough. I felt the need to interact with my subjects, to go deeper into things, to discover and to unravel, through my shots, the most real and often hidden aspects of what I saw. I started photographing people. I try to reveal their soul and personality. I love to portray especially young couples, families, children. I specialize mainly in photography for events and weddings: not only a profession but the desire to tell emotions and stories, to keep alive these unique and unrepeatable moments. Photographing means writing with light. It means capturing details, immersing oneself in the emotions of others, sharing moments of life and transforming them into evocative and suggestive images. I like to empathize and share emotions, immerse myself in stories, walk part of the way with the people who choose to look at their lives through my shots. My discreet and constant presence offers a genuine, true, and intense account of the most beautiful day of your life. My desire to tell stories through images stretches to the world of companies and businesses. With the creation of commercials and of promotional and institutional videos. These are fundamental tools that strengthen the brand and communicate the mission, vision, values, and flagship products of the company, to ensure an effective presence on different platforms, from television to social networks and internet sites. I still love environment and landscape photography, in line with my great passion for nature, for uncontaminated landscapes, for walks in the quiet of the mountain. I think that a personal encounter is irreplaceable, to create synergies and mutual understanding. Hence, I invite you to come and visit me in my studio, to have the pleasure of getting to know each other and collaborating. I wait for you! [Perugia 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 have always photographed. At the very beginning, I studied architecture, my obsession was to take perfect photographs. My problem was always the people who “soiled” the places, squares, and buildings that I photographed during my travels or exits. But then something changed. A bit like in "Ciàula discovers the Moon", the novel by Pirandello in which the miner boy once remains ecstatic by the beauty of the Moon despite having always had it in front his eyes but never really looked at, I fell in love with people. I studied photojournalism and learned how to tell the beauty of reality and people even in their imperfection, which is an essential part of the uniqueness and soul of everything. Over the years I then specialized in wedding photojournalism and family portraits. Basically, reportage photography consists of telling an event, a situation, a story. This approach applied by an important event such as a marriage or even a simple family moment is much more alive and personal, truer. Henri Cartier-Bresson, one of the forefathers of photojournalism, once said that to photograph is to place the mind, the eyes and the heart on the same target line. I have always tried to make this sentence my own because if you manage to converge in a single photo, in addition to what you see the energy of a moment, the intensity of an emotion, the perception of an atmosphere, well, that's amazing!

Naples wedding photography by Serena Faraldo of Campania Italy

Class of 1985. Neapolitan by origin and upbringing, Partenope (the Siren from Greek mythology associated with my beautiful city) taught me many things; inside my soul, I feel the warmth and “serenity” of the sea which, if necessary, can become powerful, wavy and stormy. I am a Pisces ascending Lion; I have a passionate soul at heart but can keep an equally quiet and relaxed attitude on the surface, as my name “Serena” suggests. I've been proudly sporting my bangs since I was a kid (though sometimes a little crooked) and I won't let any hairdresser cut them. My fringe is not the only thing I carry with me from my childhood. I started drawing as soon as I was able to hold a pencil between my fingers and never stopped ever since and I still have the same love for art and images. This world made of colors and shapes of my childhood, never faded from inside of me; instead it has evolved, guiding me to explore many forms and expressions of Art. My creativity and passion for art became a precise path of studies all based on images, colors, shapes and Art, starting from Art high school up to a Fine Arts Degrees in graphics and photography. I consider love, and the chance to love, the greatest gift that life can give you; the most powerful fuel for any metaphorical engine. That's why perhaps I’d best describe myself as a “Love photographer” more than as a wedding photographer. I deeply love my job. To me, it’s not just a simple job, but a source of everyday happiness; a dream that comes true every time I’m able to hold my camera and become a storyteller. I love to tell love stories and I do that in the most caring, creative and passionate way. There are many other things that I love, besides my job; I love my dog Rori, who is my little old, grey best friend. To be honest I love all dogs and if I meet one, I have to cuddle him/her for at least 5 minutes! I love my grandmother, my mother and my sister, who are my story and my memory. I love my nephew, Simone. I love vintage stuff. I could spend hours in the flea markets in search of small treasures. I love dancing despite being a terribly uncoordinated person! I love everything that is a "game"; be it a role play, a table game, or a simple video game…I’m in! I love to meet people who have been able to keep their inner child alive, just like I did and I try to do every day of my life. I love travelling, UFO documentaries, swing dance, cold pizza at breakfast, warm pyjamas, watching the stars imagining life on the planets up there, Japanese mochi, and learning. When I’m not working on photography, I spend all my time on travel, music, movies, books and TV series; I strongly believe that all this will keep my mind open, helping me to be a better photographer.

WPJA Communiqué: Features
We all know that the economy can go through some hard times, and be somewhat reminiscent of past recessions. However, as people cut back on non-essential little luxuries here and there, one constant remains: weddings. People don’t tend to just stop getting married due to a poor economy, nor should they! So, in an industry that keeps on going through thick and thin, what are some things to expect for the future, and what is really necessary to still make that wedding day memorable and...Read more
It’s no secret that these are strange times we’re going through right now, and there are many couples out there with weddings set in the near future who are left feeling uncertain and concerned about their futures. While that’s understandable, it’s also important to remember the reason you’re getting married in the first place; not for the grand celebration, but because you love each other and want to be together.

WHAT EXACTLY DOES IT MEAN TO ELOPE? If you look up the definition of “elope” in the Merriam-Webster dictionary , you’ll find a plethora of meanings making it quite clear how polarizing the word has become, and how it has transformed and evolved with the passage of time and even personal preference.Read more

Some couples, as they begin planning for their weddings, might think that they are limited to the classic locations: churches, gardens, beaches, or even Las Vegas. But in doing so they’re missing out on a multitude of unique options that might suit their personalities much better! Why limit yourself to a quiet, quaint ceremony when your adventurous heart may be calling out for something more? An entirely different genre of wedding, so to speak, is the adventure wedding elopement. This concept...Read more
While some people live for the hustle and bustle of a big wedding with extravagant décor and an impossibly long guest list, others find these kinds of weddings to be too much hoopla, preferring instead something simpler and quieter, allowing for more intimacy between them and their fiancés on this special day. So how do you infuse your wedding with all the romance but none of the fuss? ALONE AT LAST Many couples these days are opting to elope rather than planning a large wedding. For the no-...Read more
Not everyone has a lagoon or glacier next door, but there's no rule saying you can't have a small wedding in the great outdoors. Take advantage of natural sunshine and that open, airy feeling and give your guests some room to breathe! LESS IS MORE Instead of hemming your guests in on all sides, give them some elbow room, and legroom, too. There's no need to induce claustrophobia when you've got a wide, open space.

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

Hello Fabrizio, the first word that comes to mind is THANK YOU! Thank you for being our photographer! I understood that you would be the right person for our wedding since the first time we chatted at the Christmas Village of Gonzaga and you showed me your photos, explain them with passion and making me identify with the girls on the album! And to think that I had come to the newlyweds area for a chance! When I got home I remember telling Michele that for the "fateful" day the photographer was already chosen. Consider that we did not even have a date in mind ... Then the following of the story you know ... And thanks to your shots will remain in our hearts and in our memory forever! With love, Laura and Michele

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.

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

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!

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

Thank you so much for your help on our wedding day. You are the best photographer a bride & groom could ask for. Your relaxed and kind hearted nature made us both feel so comfortable on the day and the lead up. You captured some very special moments that Julia and I will treasure forever. Our album is AMAZING! We have said it before and will say it again - You are the best!!!!!!

Hello Fabrizio, These few lines only partially express our satisfaction, happiness and honor in having you present on the most important day of our lives. When we met and met you, we both immediately understood that you were the right photographer for us: your spontaneity and your contagious smile won us over!

Covering the photographs, we realize your great professionalism and preparation, and your ability to capture precious moments without ever being intrusive. We thank you once again for making everything more special, unique, timeless. A big hug! Patrizio and Gloria

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 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
