Giampiero Marcocci for Italy Wedding Photography in Abruzzo and Teramo..

I love telling people and their stories through images, especially in special moments like the wedding that I choose to photograph with an expressive style of content that I would call "wedding photojournalism" with which I try to tell the day simply by capturing the spontaneity of the event and the emotions through the most real moments and the most significant details, the real and not constructed moments, spontaneous and original, all this to make the same emotions of that day live again after some time. The photographic service provides for my presence throughout the duration of the event, but can also be customized according to your needs. The images are made by me with the help of an assistant for a better coordination of the work and a collaborator who takes care of the video shooting. Personally I take care of the composition and packaging of your wedding album that can be the photo book or the classic album with veline and both can be made with refined Fine Art inkjet prints with carbon pigment inks on cotton cards that I personally realize, or simply on classic opaque or glossy photo paper if you prefer. You can then choose from the many covers that I select and continually search for you. You can contact me for any type of photo shoot, information, advice or quotes. I would be happy to be your wedding photographer in Teramo but I could reach you anywhere, both in Italy and abroad. Giampiero Marcocci, class of 1971 has been working with photos since 1994. After having achieved maturity in the Industrial Technical Institute, he frequents Rome and the Superior institute of Photography, he also attends various workshop with professionals including Maurizio Buscarino, Paolo Pellegrin and Silvia Camporesi. He works in Teramo. Among the most important exposures is the Art Prize Mondadori to the Permanent of Milan, the Triennial of Contemporary Sacred Art of Lecce, Images of the Taste to the National Center Of the Photo Of author of Bibbiena, the Termoli Prize to the Civic Gallery of Contemporary Art, XIV Biennale of Contemporary Sacred Art and finally her 54. International Exposure of Art of the Biennal exhibition in Venice Among the various prizes the contest 626 Communication & Safety of the Museum of the Industry and the Job of Brescia, have been awarded the Prize Special Gold Fan inside the Art Prize Mondadori.

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 . They say 'all you need is love', but where exactly can you afford to trim the fat, so to speak? You want simplicity, but you also want to be properly married and, surely, to remember this occasion.

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

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 some of us were fortunate enough to be born as extroverts, not everyone feels the same way. For a good chunk of the population, any number of the typical wedding day traditions can inspire anxiety and existential dread. This day is all about you, yes, but does that mean all the attention has to be on you as well? FROM VOWS TO CHITCHAT, WHICH REMAINS SACRED? Traditional weddings often require some degree of performance on the part of the couple, whether that is in the form of reciting...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

Dearest Giampiero and friend, a few months later we continue to rediscover nuances in "Quel" day lived, but sometimes elusive in front of the overwhelming vivacity of certain memories. We want, even today, to express our sincere gratitude for having been able to reveal, through your shots, the intensity of those pulsations of life that will always remain fixed in the heart. You managed to make your photos not only the image of the time portrayed in the instant in which it stops, but the story of the flavors, colors, thoughts, joys and feelings of the most profound protagonists of that day become an inextinguishable companion of the our life. We are grateful to you for putting your passion at your service, even before your work, narrating in pictures our most beautiful memory, the story of our life. The wish is for a goodbye in others and future shots of life ... !!! Simply Thanks. Paolo and Valeria
