Damiano Salvadori is a pro photographer, specializing in London reportage weddings with his wife.

Yesterday... Whilst growing up I was fascinated by photography and occasionally I shot with my father Minolta and having fun to capture things around me, but that was an hobby. Then, when I met my wife Donatella, who is also passionate about photography and an old Polaroid, I decided, along with her, to immerse myself in this world full time and in 2011, after a month shooting around the United States we decided to move to London for a period to deepen the technical and open our mind to the reportage style. The Street Style in London has fascinated and the Reportage style catapulted us into another world, far away from the box of classic photography. We felt in love with it! We returned to Italy and in 2012 I decided to turn my hobby into a profession, specializing in wedding photography, focusing on spontaneity, on the 'not posing' and naturalness of a shot. Today... I am proud to be a professional photographer, specializing in wedding photography.I share this passion with my wife, life and photographs partner. I love to travel, discover new places, new people and habits, photographing everything that moves me and excites with my shots. Tomorrow... I hope to continue to express myself with photography...excite myself, as I do today, to the emotions of others. [Florence Wedding Photographer]

Michele Monasta lives in Florence, Italy and is a wedding reportage photographer.

I have been a Photographer since I was ten years old... professional since 20 years ago. I am 43 years old, I am married and I have two children Arturo and Matilde. I live in Florence (Italy) and I work by my self as a Photographer specialized in Stage Photography (theatre and cinema, set and backstage) and Wedding Reportage. I've start to do Wedding Photography seven years ago because The Wedding Day is a concentrate of emotions that occur "here and now" as the theatre ... and as long as I will shudder with every click I will continue to do so. I love the emotional expression of life in all its forms, the faces, the reactions, the charm, the amazement. The marvels of daily life are exciting. No Director would be capable of communicating the unexpected that surrounds us. I have done hundreds Photoservices for theatre and that has given me a particular style for the Wedding Photography… Reportage… Documentary… or, if you prefer, Photojournalism… I like to call THE REAL STORY OF YOUR WEDDING DAY. The goal of a good photographer is taking pictures that will live forever. The wedding reportage that I offer reflects this natural approach. I like to think that a wedding day is a magical moment and it deserves to be told for how it actually happens. Discretion. No contrived posing. No fake smiles. For me Photography is the way to keep memories alive and not allow them to disappear from memory. [Florence Wedding Photographer]

Florence wedding and elopement photography by Laura Barbera of Tuscany, Italy

Hi, I’m Laura! Or maybe I should say “Hi, I’m a lucky girl” because my work is my greatest passion! I'm an Italian wedding photographer, based in my beloved Tuscany, but I love traveling and having the opportunity to tell the story of your wedding or elopement day wherever you want. I love spontaneity and people who have the courage to express their emotions, so my photographic style is a mix of photojournalistic wedding photography and romantic couple portraits, not posed but natural. I'm available for destination weddings in Italy: Tuscany, Val d'Orcia, Cinque Terre, Amalfi Coast, Venice and wherever you want me to be with you. I have always been, since childhood, deeply attracted to people, intrigued by their actions, their thoughts, and especially by what they feel and express. I went to school with my little Nikon camera, one of the most fitting gift that my parents could do! I filled rolls with faces, situations, emotions … review photos helped me to settle the most beautiful memories. I remember that I tried to photograph the joy, the student spirit, the complicity, friendship, love … and still, today, reviewing those shots, I feel again the same feelings and emotions. In this way, I understand that the photograph has enormous power in the life of each of us. When I grow up, all this turns into a job, I’m a psychologist psychotherapist specializing in the use of photography as a tool of psychological insight. The transition to becoming a wedding photographer was by accident… To tell the stories of the people through images, was the completion and integration of my passions. I love… …Cooking, as the conviviality shared with loved ones …The summer, when I sip a glass of chilled white wine on the beach at sunset …The winter, when the noisy storms contrast with the silence of a book, a sofa, and a plaid …Playing hide and seek with my cat, I swear! …And say what I think even when it can sound inconvenient! I could not live without… …My few but trusted friends …My car …The fear that gives me the courage I think… …The sensibility, the determination, the curiosity, the accord with own emotions, the knowledge, the continuous research to discover and to expose ourselves, can move any mountain! …The Love, the real one, that has nothing to do with our unfulfilled needs, exist …But to live it authentically, first of all, we have to learn loving ourselves!

Liguria and Savona Wedding and Elopement Photography by Andrea Bagnasco, of Italy

I'm a keen observer. I've always been. I remember my mom kept telling me not to stare at people when I was a kid. I don't seem to have listened as I keep staring at people, only now I do it through the viewfinder of my camera. My interest in photography started back in the mid-'80s when I was barely a teenager. I saved for over a year to afford my first camera, which was a Nikon FM2 with a 50mm lens. A fully manual, film camera that I still own to this day and that still takes perfectly good pictures. It was a time when cameras and photographs were both meant to last. Cameras were mostly mechanical machines and photographs were physical prints, created on film and impressed on paper. There was something tangible about taking a picture and pictures, even normal family vacation pictures, were taken to make a statement. I remember leaving for several days with my family and I could take with me 1 or maybe 2 rolls of film. That was 36 or 72 exposures total. So, pressing the shutter was something exciting that came at the end of a thoughtful process, which could take minutes or a split second, but still: taking a picture was making a statement. And if you think about it, these photographs are still around, be it in albums or boxes in the closet. It may be your pictures as a child or the pictures of your parents or grandparents. They are still doing their work of preserving a memory, of passing down to generations information about people who came before us. They are telling us who we are and where we come from. Fast forward a few decades, come digital sensors and smartphones and photography has radically changed, in that cameras seem to only last a few years before going obsolete and pictures are taken by the thousands, very few of which, if any, will ever be printed and stand any chance to be looked at by anyone in 10 years or more. Still, my job is to take photographs of weddings and I like to come from the bygone era of photography that was meant to last when the shutter was pressed to make a statement. That has stuck with me, even if I'm working with digital cameras and the 36 exposures roll has turned into a multi-thousand pictures capacity memory card. My mindset hasn't changed, the excitement of seeing all the elements come together to make the frame I am looking for and pressing the shutter, that hasn't changed either. I'm entering my 10th year as a professional wedding photographer now. It all happened almost by chance, when I was facing decisions about my 15 years long corporate career and my personal life had me rethink my professional path. I was asked to shoot a friend's wedding but I hadn't practiced photography since ages. I learnt photography technique when I was in my teens then put it aside as my hobby is and has always been guitars. So I borrowed a digital camera and took this people's wedding pictures without ever been taught how to shoot a wedding. I just went out there and took pictures of what I saw, without ever giving directions to anyone as I had no idea how things were supposed to be directed. It was documentary wedding photography without me knowing it. Turns out, everybody loved the pictures. I was loving guitars and music so much and hoping to be loved back but as it went, photography loved me more than guitars ever did. I had a talent and the responsibility of making it grow. In the meanwhile, I started my business. I already had the basic techniques down from my younger days, so I studied the work of the masters. Photographers that always appealed to me such as W. Eugene Smith, H. Cartier Bresson, Don Mc Cullin, Elliott Erwitt, Salgado and the more I studied, the more I discovered, the more books I acquired: Alex Webb, Fan Ho, Josef Koudelka, Bruce Gilden, Robert Frank, James Nachtwey among the others. The best way to improve your lexicon is to read books. Likewise for photography, studying the work of the masters on photography books is what develops your own photographic language. What educates your way of looking at things and crafting a picture, to make your statement. To this day, I've shot approximately 300 weddings. Anything from eloping couples and a pair of guests to 200+ people events. No matter how big and fancy or small and simple, it's always about telling the story of my clients through my pictures. It's about putting my photography lexicon to work to craft images that will be true to my clients, to their day, to their vision. They provide the content, I provide the style. Simple as that.

Andrea Sampoli is a wedding and elopement photographer of Italia - WPJA photography in Toscana and Siena

I’m a Tuscany wedding photographer based in Siena, but I work in all of Italy for weddings. I have taken photos for weddings in Siena, Florence, Arezzo, Perugia, Assisi, Gubbio, Milano, Como Lake, Rome, in the Chianti hills, in Val D’Orcia, and in many other beautiful italian locations. I have a reportage style in which a discrete approach, attention to details and spontaneity are the main ingredients. I always have this objective: to create a story through photos, a photo narration as faithful and natural as possible. That’s why from the beginning, I try to establish starting with the first contact with the future bride and groom, a rapport or feeling of confidence to create a tranquil and relaxed atmosphere that permits me to give life to natural and spontaneous photos full of meaning and sentiment. I was born in Siena in 1977. I graduated with a degree in political science and I obtained a doctorate in the history of European political parties. After working several years at the University of Siena, various events and my passion for photography led me to the decision to become a professional photographer. Shortly after starting my career as an exclusive Tuscany wedding photographer, I was fortunate enough to gain experience in the art world. I published for the magazines Play Boy Italy and Art Tribune and showed my photos at exhibitions at various art galleries ( Wikiarte, Magazzini del Sale). After the birth of my first daughter ( Maria Ludovica) my main focus became to be a Siena Wedding Photographer, a exclusive Tuscany wedding photographer and everywhere in Italy. I know every angle of my marvelous region: Siena, Florence, Arezzo and all of the beautiful villages and towns. San Gimignano, Chianti hills, Val d’Orcia and the Crete senesi hold no secrets for me. Other than wedding photography, I also teach at “ Studiumfotografia”, a school I created, where I advise many up and coming photographers. After the birth of my second daughter (Maria Luce), the University of Siena gave me the honor of the position of visiting lecturer of digital communications in photography. When I’m not working (rarely) I dedicate myself to my passions: naturally Ludi and Luce, but I also love watching movies, reading and I cannot live without music!

He therefore changes direction, leaving the couples free to do what they prefer, aiming at capturing their emotions in a fully natural manner delivering a reportage oriented approach to weddings.

Prague wedding photography by Stepan Vrzala of Czech Republic

When I started university, I got a camera from my brother. I instantly fell in love with photography and within a year, I bought myself a "pro" camera and started shooting for a local fashion agency. It was a great job for a student and I learned so much about working with light and people, as well as all the editing, colors and composition. While I enjoyed the job I was aiming for a more photo journalistic approach in my shoots. Later, a friend called me and asked if I can shoot at a wedding. It was a life changing experience for me. I really enjoyed the shoot and later on I started to get calls from newlywed friends and friends of their friends... It was like an avalanche and I became fully immersed in the world of wedding photography. That was seven years ago. At the same time, I was deeply interested in yoga and zen and I was searching for the same approach in photography - creating a simple, clean and highly polished look, but still far away from overdone image alteration. I believe a good shot must stand on it's own and not on effects added in postproduction. Photojournalistic way of shooting works for me: I love to get the essence of the moment, to catch the magic of people’s interactions and emotions, as well as the atmosphere of the locations themselves. And I must admit I also love to hear my clients talk about how the images bring them back in time and make them re-live the best moments once again. I do not cover only weddings, I use my talent and experience to capture the beauty in life all around. I shoot people in love and their kids. I shoot portraits and I shoot bikes too. Don't laugh. Biking is a part of my life and naturally, I'm the one with a camera. Around the house or in Italy at the races, I shoot it. Actually, capturing racing bikers provided me a fantastic training to capture the peak of the moment. The other thing I deeply appreciate is architecture. I am glad for all the shoots for hi-end magazines, hotels and restaurants. Every new location brings in inspiration and I like to watch and study how the light changes the look and feel of the place. In a certain way, it affects my wedding photography too. I can quickly find the right spot and perspective to let the energy of the venue come alive in the shoot. It all just clicks. When not shooting, I spend most of my time with my friends and family, walking the dog in the forest and meadows. I read books, travel, visit art exhibitions, work on my bike and sometimes I visit my parents in the countryside and help them with the greenhouse. I bike, ski and swim. Life is good:) [Prague Wedding Photographer]

Caterina Errani WPJA Profile Image Ravenna wedding and elopement photography by Caterina Errani of Emilia-Romagna Italy

The love for reportage photography was born out of passion when I bought my first camera, a Nikon FM10 film in Guatemala, almost twenty years ago. I started photographing a few precious, intense and unrepeatable moments of my travels, from the most remote areas of Himalayan Asia to the most boundless areas of Tierra del Fuego, inextricably sealing my two strongest passions: travel and photographic reportage. My reportage photography was therefore born as a loving language, with the need to give small pieces of dream, enhance and transmit the emotions that bring people's hearts close together. In reportage photography, the moment reigns everywhere sovereign, as well as in the most important day of the celebration of Love. It is precisely in the instant, which is the shortest imaginable moment, the lapse where a thousand spells occur, and where memories bring amazement and enchantment for a lifetime. For more than ten years I have captured the most beautiful moments on the most beautiful day of the couple's life, in Italy and abroad, gathering moments that make that day and one's own life unique. Every wedding deserves to be told through eyes and heart, this is the purpose of my art: to tell the beauty and emotions of your most important day and to make this precious moment aeternal. Over the years I have exhibited my works in various exhibitions, and I am reported as a photographer on VOGUE. And now something about my travels: I have explored the world, in lands dotted with faces, landscapes and silences, where peace and beauty kidnap the heart and nourish emotions. Ladak, Mongolia, Nepal, Cambodia, Patagonia, New Guinea, Myanmar, Guatemala, Namibia, India, Ceylon are just some of the countries where I was given the photographic emotion and I, therefore, shared it time to time as a gift. To those who have come to read these last lines I would like to give a story, a look: imagine you are at dusk, in the garden of one of the countless monasteries of the Ex Burma, or in the plain of the Golden Pagodas, or in any street in the countryside .. you find yourself with your nose up, without realizing it: each person, child or adult has a piece of thread in his hand, and with skill of movement they float the small kite in the sky. Your gaze now shifts in their gaze. This is absolute sweetness. And this is the indelible memory of the country. [Ravenna Wedding Photographer]

My goal is to tell through wedding photography what you feel in those moments, to capture the emotions of both the couple and the guest. I try to give with my photographs something emotional, beyond the simple technique. [Arezzo Wedding Photographer]

Tuscany and Livorno wedding photography by Raul Gori of Italy

My professional preparation as a wedding photographer was handed down through my father, a photographer at the time, he taught me the real manual using his old Pentax film. The move to new technologies was natural so I decided to buy my first reflex camera and then stay up to date, following various photographic studios and new courses as a wedding photographer. I simply answer this question: it makes me feel good and I like to describe, tell the story of two people, through the importance of light and the value of shadows. Mainly I love to make people feel good with whom I have the privilege of describing those moments so important and invaluable. I take care of every project, from start to finish, paying the utmost attention to every detail, trying to give the couple the maximum in terms of professionalism. The need to express myself led me to study photography and, as I come to explore it more deeply, I also discovered myself. [Livorno Wedding Photographer]

We are so happy we hired you to photograph our wedding day. When we saw samples of your work on your website we were certain you could deliver what we wanted, but the actual results completely exceeded our expectations. We love the lighting, colours and framing in every photo. The candid shots during our wedding breakfast are wonderful, particularly during the speeches – they really take me back to those moments. We felt comfortable with you throughout the day and loved your ideas for a photo session roaming around Prague to make use of the stunning picturesque backgrounds. The city is so close to my heart and is captured forever as a main player of one of the most special days in my life. Speaking of special days – we gave birth to our beautiful daughter last November and would love to have you take some photos of her when we’re next in Prague! Keep up the good work. We will always recommend you to anyone who needs an approachable, competent, professional and fantastically talented photographer.

My husband, George, and I would like to tell you what an awesome job you did for our wedding. They are absolutely stunning!!! The photos are beyond my expectation! You are truly wonderful and talented, and have done a spectacular job. Words can't describe how happy we are with your work. You really captures the spirit and the feeling of that day and gave us some everlasting memories. Every time we look at the pictures, those great memories come right back. We have received so many wonderful compliments that people often ask to hire you and sad to find out you are not in the US. The photo book you made for us was very special and of high quality. It showcased our wedding so well that it allowed us to share those special moments with our friends who were not there. It will certainly become a family treasure for years to come. Thank you again and we truly appreciate your exceptional work. ,

Hi Stepan, It's hard to express in words how unbelievable your photos were! You really were fantastic :) Thank you so much for being our wedding photographer. Throughout the process, from discussing ideas with you in the months of preparation to choosing photos for our album afterwards – you've been a pleasure to work with. While our wedding only lasted one day, we are so glad that we'll have your photographs to remember it by for the rest of our lives. You are such an artist, and you truly captured the essence and feeling of the day. We've received so many compliments from our family and friends on the photographs, and we honestly can't stop looking through the album you made us! Thanks again for being such a special part of our wedding. Josef and I were thinking that it might be nice to have an extra session with you on our first anniversary. It wouldn't have to be the exact day, but we thought it would be cool to have photos from you one year later. Let me know what you think :) Thanks again! Isabel

Words can't express how thrilled we are with your photos! You captured our day perfectly and the range of emotions that we experienced that day. Our friends and family also can't get enough of the pictures; we receive so many compliments on your beautiful work. Both of our parents display the photos all over their houses, and our grandparents, aunts and uncles have all requested copies. When we were choosing a photographer for our wedding, we really wanted someone whose work was artistic and unique; your portfolio not only met, but exceeded that requirement. Thank you, also, for being so wonderful to work with. We really enjoyed getting to know you over email prior to meeting you in person, and especially appreciated your willingness to listen to our thoughts and ideas. During our engagement session, we were so impressed that you were able to make us feel comfortable not only with you, but with being photographed. That's not easy to do for us, as we're both a little camera-shy. Thank you again for an amazing experience. We love to look at our wedding book and remember Prague and all the special moments from that week. If you're ever in NYC or in the New England area, we'd love to have you photograph our family - if we have kids at that time. :) There's no one that could do it better than you! Or, we could just visit Prague again and come to you. Either way, it would mean a lot to us to work with you again.
