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]

“Photography is mute, but the image in its visual language, speaks of truth …” – Steve Mc Curry – Just like Steve McCurry says, it is reality that inspires me, narrating, through photography, the truth as it is, without filters or mediation. I’m interested above all in capturing these emotions in contexts and situations which involve love and family. Travelling both in Italy and abroad, I realize my wedding photography with a reportage style, that is narrating every moment with an image, every detail in a very natural way, without poses or arranged settings and without making my presence felt.

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]

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

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

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. Who, then, could be more important than...Read more
Not everyone has a lagoon or glacier next door, but there's no rule saying you can't have a small wedding in the great outdoors. Take advantage of natural sunshine and that open, airy feeling and give your guests some room to breathe! LESS IS MORE Instead of hemming your guests in on all sides, give them some elbow room, and legroom, too. There's no need to induce claustrophobia when you've got a wide, open space. Let your guests take in the view, especially if you've got a spectacular one. You...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.
