Elopement Photographers for Small Veneto Weddings

Shooting an elopement or small Verona wedding event is a wedding photojournalist’s dream: a fairly open schedule with lots of breathing space for creativity – it’s just the photographer, the couple, the officiant, and perhaps a few select companions.

Members are ready to document any civil ceremony, themed, quick, or elopement wedding, even if it is a Monday-Thursday ceremony. Search for the “Can Shoot Weddings on Short Notice!” message on the listings below.

We are anxious to create a picture story chronicling your casual, religious, non-traditional, small wedding from beginning to end. In this sense, it is no different from any other event that we have covered. The emphasis is on documenting key moments, capturing spontaneous displays of emotion, telling your real love story, as well as creating artistic portraits and details.

Brescia wedding and elopement photography by Alessandro Di Noia of Lombardy, Italy

I was born in Milan in 1980, my father worked in Associated Press and from the first day of my life I breathed news photography, so obviously when I had to choose which high school to attend I chose photography. After the study I worked for a few years as a printer in a black and white dark room. In 2003, tired of printing photos of others, I quit my job and I started working as an assistant for several photographers. In 2007 I opened my business and I dedicated myself to wedding photography, I immediately tried to offer a service as spontaneous as possible, convinced that over the years the couple will want to find on their album the people to them care, and not pages of portraits of the spouses. For the rest I read a lot of books, I play the electric guitar badly and try to dedicate my time to the important people of my life. [Brescia Wedding Photographer]

photographer in Tuscan, Alice Franchi of Italia

“Photography is mute, but the image in its visual language, speaks of truth …” – Steve Mc Curry – Just like Steve McCurry says, it is reality that inspires me, narrating, through photography, the truth as it is, without filters or mediation. I’m interested above all in capturing these emotions in contexts and situations which involve love and family. Travelling both in Italy and abroad, I realize my wedding photography with a reportage style, that is narrating every moment with an image, every detail in a very natural way, without poses or arranged settings and without making my presence felt.

Tuscany wedding photographer Cristian Bussu, for Italy

My approach to photography began by chance. Thanks to my partner Alice Franchi I discovered this wonderful world. I'm only 4 years that I dedicate myself to photography, above all to reportage style wedding photography, I follow Alice in the various weddings of the year. I really like the style of reportage because I can represent people in their happiest and most natural moments, involving me in the party customers do not see me as a stranger, but an integral part of the event so that he can capture the most beautiful moments.

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

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. Fortunately, though, the concept of small weddings is becoming increasingly popular for couples who either want to be able to completely customize their day where and when they want with the option...Read more

So your wedding is just around the corner and you’ve decided to elope , either because you want to do this on a budget , avoid a large wedding party, or simply to enjoy the day together with minimal distractions and as little stress as possible .

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
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. Let your guests take in the view, especially if you've got a spectacular one. You...Read more

Traditionally speaking, often times it is the couple’s families who help pay for their wedding. However, unfortunately that’s just not possible for everyone, especially these days when the cost of weddings can quickly and easily get out of control. Some couples find themselves in the position of paying for all of their own wedding expenses, which can be quite the financial burden to take on, and about 40% of Millennials end up in this boat. So, how can you stick to your allotted...Read more
