Wedding photo shoot
Yes, we can take care of your destination wedding photography. If you plan to get married in Italy, contact us: we’ll be honored to tell the story of your wedding through our pictures.
Being photography teachers requires us to be outstanding professional photographers in the first place. Wedding photography it’s a great opportunity to take advantage of our skills.
If you’re planning a wedding in Milan, Como Lake area, Venice, Florence, Rome… or elsewhere in Italy we’ll be honored to tell the story of your wedding through our pictures.
Your wedding is a unique occasion: after all the food is eaten, presents unwrapped, the band has gone and your guest will have left the venue, your pictures will be the only memory that will truly last for a lifetime, so they deserve a committed and professional treatment to show the magic of this unforgettable day.
Our goal is to take beautiful and natural images of your wedding in a candid, unobtrusive way, keeping the experience light and joyful, without interrupting the natural flow of events. This means our approach is more ‘journalistic/reportage’ style oriented, so we’ll let things happen your way, without intervening with awkward posing or strange requests that might interfere with the flow of the day, but discreetly catching spontaneous images while you’re living the most memorable day in your life. It’s our belief that for the best results all you have to do is to enjoy your day without worrying about us so we will be able to tell exactly that story.
Our photography is not just reportage: if you wish we will take family portraits and group shots and we will reserve some time during the day for a brief classic posed portrait session, delivering stunning shots with a more artistic vision.
Dedication and good humor are the main helpers in our work. These elements, combined with your love and happiness, will surely result in images with deep emotional impact.
When it comes to displaying the imagery of your wedding day, be aware that your USB pen or drive will not last forever. Of course you might want to show your wedding on social media so we will give you this opportunity through a batch of optimized pictures. However, a wedding album is the media you will look at over and over again. You will go through the pages over the years on anniversaries and family gatherings. Your children and grandchildren will want to see it. It’s a book that will get handed down as an heirloom, it’s the very first piece in the legacy that is you two. We know this is relevant and that’s why we put the maximum care in printing and crafting your wedding album.
A meeting in person with your wedding photographers is advisable but, given distance, not always possible: we would of course be happy to schedule up a Skype/FaceTime video call with you whenever you are available.
We took great care in putting together the most popular products and services a couple might desire. Our packages include, for example:
- Full day (12 hours) coverage with two photographers, from makeup to the party.

Please contact us and tell us how we can help you to make your wedding day really unforgettable!
We’ll deliver around 500/600 images. Only 80/100 of them will make it into the wedding album.
Two or three weeks after the wedding you will receive a printable high resolution and low resolution copy of the edited images. If you have decided on a printed album we will need you to choose 80/100 pictures you would like to include in the album and send your selection back to us. Two o three weeks later you will receive the album either directly from us or through Express Courier.
Of course we do! We also provide engagement and honeymoon photo services. For any other shoot please contact us, we will discuss it together.
We work with professional filmmakers whom we have known and trusted for several years. In our opinion it is important that the photographer is familiar with the filmmaker with whom he will work so they will not get into each other’s way.
You can contact us then if feasible we will meet, otherwise we will or arrange contact via phone or Skype. If you decide to employ us as your wedding photographers we’ll send you a contract stating your requirements and our fee. To finalize booking we require a 50% deposit payment through bank transfer. The balance is due on the wedding day.
We will do light editing for contrast, white balance, colour and b/w, not a fashion commercial retouch. We will not “photoshop” your images to take a person out of a picture, smooth wrinkles (except for a couple of closeup portraits, if needed) or get rid of the water bottles left on your table. We’re photographers and we’d like to capture your wedding day as it really happened (we will still remove the bottles by hand). If you would like extensive retouching we can do that for a fee and it will take a wile longer.
Yes, please bear in mind that the overall quality will be affected. We think having two points of view is very important to fully cover a bustling event like a wedding, when lot of things happen at the same time, this way no important moment will be missed. Furthermore, two photographers help each other in posing groups, with flashes, lights and reflective panels if needed.
There are several personalized options according to your needs. From a simple DVD containing your images, to the creation of albums with traditional printed pictures (with multiple proposals and custom solutions) or in the form of digital photobook. We are open to anything and glad to discuss with you your preferred option.
