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

Oftentimes when people are considering a venue for their weddings, they search for a location away from home, whether that be ten minutes or ten hours, all just to find what they already have: a place that holds meaning for them, that feels comfortable, or that they find special and memorable. But what could hold more memory, meaning, and importance than your own home? For those looking for that perfect venue, it may not be any further than beyond your threshold.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

RAVES, REVIEWS, AND Emilia-Romagna WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER RECOMMENDATIONS

Massimo & Manuela

Photo by Fabrizio Demasi

Dear Fabrizio. Even as you described Stefania of Villa Cavriani, to advise us various names that had worked in the villa, Massimo and I had understood that you were the right photographer for our wedding .... and we were absolutely wrong !!! In fact, from the first moments that we met you, you immediately created a feeling, which continued on the occasion of your visit to our families, some time before the event and which was decidedly consolidated on June 21 ... the day more nice of our life !!! Thank you for making everything natural, simple and spontaneous and for making really beautiful photos. You managed to capture our most exciting moments ... laughter, tears, dances, hugs ... Thank you for having documented everything, without ever being intrusive and indeed, moving between us with an infinite delicacy. Thank you from our friends and our families, whom you loved so much, for your professionalism and friendliness, but above all thanks to me and Massimo, for being a fundamental part of our marriage. A huge hug Manuela and Massimo

Giovanna & Daniel

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.

Hello Luca! Ale and I wanted to thank you again for the wonderful job you did in our marriage, from our first meeting to the final result. The photos are great and the album beautiful. We are super happy and satisfied to have chosen you. Love, color, light, joy and emotion are some of the elements that were reflected in our splendid photos, making a sequential description of moments that perfectly tell how our day was. The photos are the only physical memory that will last in time, you captured the best moments and in the best way, a real, very natural and original way! Really, better impossible! Thank you for your kindness, professionalism and for the incredible work done! Thank you so much!!!
