A: There are many WPJA photographers who are able to help you out at a moment's notice. We understand that sometimes love happens and there's simply no time to lose. We can ensure that you can get married as quickly as possible — and have incredible photographs to remember your Ravenna wedding day by.
Q: How can couples find reviews of Ravenna wedding photographers?
A: We call them Client Letters. At the WPJA, we decided more than 20 years ago to avoid incorporating those third-person testimonials and endorsements that are found all too often in advertisements. Instead, we elevated our listings with the use of Client Letters, which represent the actual words and feelings of the clients who booked those Ravenna wedding photographers for their own wedding.
Q: How can couples find top-ranked Ravenna wedding photographers?
A: The WPJA created the original wedding photographer ranking systems. Our innovative system is based on contest winning points, meaning that the Ravenna photographers you see at the top of your search results page have recently won the most — and the most recent — contest awards. Our contests judge photographers based on their creativity, style, composure, and ability to capture the heart of any couple's story on their wedding day.

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?

While some people live for the hustle and bustle of a big wedding with extravagant décor and an impossibly long guest list, others find these kinds of weddings to be too much hoopla, preferring instead something simpler and quieter, allowing for more intimacy between them and their fiancés on this special day.

Fabio e Milena

Photo by Fabrizio Demasi

Hi Fabrizio! We are writing to the man and friend in the first place, not only to the photographer. Your photos have a communicative force that often transcends the moment of the shoot, but above all they convey what you are - they are kind, attentive and caring, strong and incisive, sweet. And exactly because of your unique way of perceiving the world we shared and have chosen, other than offering our compliments for your professionalism and technique, we want to talk about the journey you led us through. Sitting in your studio, imagining how it would be, you made us emotional, you literally conjured the scenes before our very eyes. You took us by the hand, you led us in the most beautiful day of our lives well before you we reached the established date. You gave us peace, you managed our embarrassment about being at the centre of the attention, you guided us, you allowed us to feel at ease and, as a result, to be spontaneous and serene. It was only then that you took your camera and you got down to work. You were an important point of reference throughout our day, for us and for our loved ones, a discreet presence, but also an attentive and helpful one. We fully enjoyed the day, energized and happy for what we were experiencing and we had a great time as I am sure you had too. The final outcome turned to be wonderful photos, where we recognize ourselves in and through them relive the emotions of that moment - with such an impact that we continue to remain breathless. Every shot has its own history, its own emotion and its very own beauty. 'Thank you' is what we are writing, but words are not enough to express everything. Fabio e Milena

Attilio e Chiara

Photo by Fabrizio Demasi

Hello Fabrizio, I've known you for several years because you've always done the photo shoot for the family company catalog, in a sense you can say that you helped to create what is now an annual "tradition"! When I decided to get married, in a hurry for another, I had no doubt about who to choose as a photographer of the event. When Attilio and I came to define the details of the day in your studio you told us not to worry, that you would follow us and that we would not even notice you. And so it was. You chased us all over Verona in the pouring rain of January, being always present in the most important moments and also in those apparently more insignificant but, with the intervention of time have become precious to reconstruct that important day, like a puzzle. The amazement of my friend Giovanni when he saw me in a wedding dress, the shoe that slips off just as I descend the stairs, caress the dog of our friend Dolores, when I look at those shots come back to mind together with visual memories also moods and sensations. As bride and groom we have not been very good organization but you have also been able to call us to order at the right time to make wonderful portraits of the two of us with natural light and I thank you again because now, one of those photos, stands on the My bedside table and follows me on every journey. Since the wedding is celebrated only once in life and you can not say "I would choose you as a photographer next time", we confirm you now for the fiftieth anniversary! Thanks to your professionalism and above all to your artistic sensibility, today we can relive the 4th of January 2014 every time we browse the album. Chiara
