Liguria and Imperia wedding photography by Bianca Raineri - Italy Professional Photographer

I've always loved art. As a child I spent whole afternoons watching my grandmother paint .. I liked her decisive but delicate at the same time and the many nuances she could create. Ansel Adams said: "You don't just take a photograph with a camera. You put in the photograph all the images you saw, the books you read, the music you heard, and the people you loved." I have built my style over the years and it is constantly growing because I love to observe and learn as much as possible from every experience. I love to remember every moment and for this reason, I believe in the power of photography as a means by which to tell a story, an important moment ... a love. My intent is to transform your emotions into unique memories by telling the most important day of your life through my shots. "Miksang" is a Tibetan word and means "see with a good eye" and indicates the pursuit of beauty in everyday life. I learned the meaning of this word while attending a photography course in Genoa and since then I have tried to remain faithful to this philosophy. In the years 2012 and 2013 I attended the Master of Professional Photography at the Mohole institute in Milan and then I decided to turn my biggest passion into work by opening a studio in my hometown, Imperia. Since photography took my heart, nothing has been the same. [Imperia Wedding Photographer]

Liguria and Savona wedding photography by Giorgia Gaggero, of Italy

Born and raised in Savona, a small town on the sea, I approached photography very soon, when my dad in his photographic releases allowed me to shoot with a small disposable Kodak. Over time, my training in visual communication and proximity to other forms of art such as painting (my parents are ceramists) has meant that at the age of 19 I decided to enroll in a photography school. It was then that my teacher of the time wanted to take me with her to go and take pictures of those who would then be my first marriages. Since then a succession of works always linked to photography, graphics, and communication. Until 2015, when together with Fabrizio Gresti, my husband, I decided to open Creative Couple Studio. Marriage is what I love to do, together with the photography of children and family. I love working with people, excited faces, gestures, stories that each of us brings with them, are exactly what I constantly look for in my subjects. During the services I'm very discreet just to make sure that everything takes place in the maximum spontaneity that I always try to capture in my shots. I love meeting new people, I'm sociable and in the past, I have also photographed musical events, so I'm also very careful to take the moments of the party, but as a woman, I have a sensitivity and an attentive eye to detail. A mix of essential ingredients for a wedding photo story. [Savona Wedding Photographer]

WHAT EXACTLY DOES IT MEAN TO ELOPE? If you look up the definition of “elope” in the Merriam-Webster dictionary , you’ll find a plethora of meanings making it quite clear how polarizing the word has become, and how it has transformed and evolved with the passage of time and even personal preference.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

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

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
