Are you a couple that is madly in Love and searching for a Photographer to capture your wedding in a unique and nice way?

Wedding Photographer in Tuscany

I could be the one you’re looking for!

I believe in deep connections between people and I know very well that a wedding is more than just a ceremony. It’s your day, full of emotions, and I’ll walk with you to not miss any of al those moments of tension, happiness, tears, joy and love.

The careful and sensitive man in me seeks to capture and document the most meaningful fleeting moments.  And then there is a kind of artist in me who strives to create something new and somehow unique every time I pick up the camera. My style comes from the constant struggle to find a perfect balance between the two. The combination of my attention for every detail and my deep and fool love on looking at people and their attitudes creates a beautiful, emotional report. Some memories in which you can go through and immerse yourself over and over again. And, believe me, if I say that knowing that these images will have a place in your home to last for your lifetime is such an honor.

Below you can find the answers for frequently asked question:

• How is your editing Style? Can we have black and white edited photos?

I use to edit the photos in a natural and warm style. You can see it on these pages. All the photos are edited by me.
Some pictures will be in black and white, especially when it fits to the motive.

• How many photos of our wedding will we get?

You will receive a selection of the best photos of your wedding day.
Usually, I deliver between 500 to 1000 pictures. The number depends on the time frame you book.

• How do you manage travel costs?

Travel costs depend on the distance to be covered. If you are getting married in Tuscany, within 100 km from Florence, no extra cost will be charged. If your wedding is somewhere else we will discuss it and agree upon it together. I will never charge you more than what I actually spend.

I offer one type of photo album with high-quality fine art prints, available in different sizes.
You can make your decision after your wedding.

• We don't feel comfortable in front of the camera. How can you help?

I totally know how you feel. I swear it! When it comes to your portraits, we're just going to keep things fun and romantic! There's no need for you to "model", instead I'll help to guide you though things to do and ways to keep to focus on each other, not on the camera.
For this reason, I highly recommend an Engagement session. It's the perfect way for us to know each other and for you to get a little practice on it.

• How far should we book in advance?

Many couples book more than one year in advance.
There are a lot of spontaneous requests, so...the earlier you contact me, the better the chances are that your date is still available.

• Can we met before our wedding?

Of course we do!
I love to get to know new people and couples!
If you live abroad we can have a skype call at any time as well.

• What and when you use to eat on our wedding day?

I usually eat at the same time as your wedding guests. It's great if you have one serving left for me but I don't need an extra seat. If you would provide me a seat, take one where I can be flexible.

• How will you be dressed?

I need to be comfortable as I'm working.
This means that I'll come with a shirt and a pair of casual elegant pants.
If you have a specific dress code, please tell me. I will be more than happy to respect that.

I could be your Photographer!
