I deal with documentary reportage photography since more than ten years. I have studied with Major Italian and international reportage photographers, in Italy and abroad. I graduated at the School of Photojournalism of ISFCI in Rome. The passion for photography and for story-telling is literally sweeping me away. My way of shooting has been influenced by study and admiration of the work of the Masters of Photojournalism, the American street photography and the contemporary Italian and English excellences in wedding documentary photography. I feel honored to offer my passion for photography, for story-telling and for life in general to those want to witness their wedding in an authentic and emotional way. [Rome Wedding Photographer]

Taking pictures. It makes me happy. I started having fun at 8 yrs old when I got a Kodak Instamatic. My interest in wedding photography came shooting some friends' wedding, and has not run out yet. It's like breathing to me: I can't do without. I don't think the images before making them: I observe and snap, I follow the emotions and the light, in a continuous search for an unusual frame. Every marriage is an encounter with the beauty of a new story to remember, which totally involves my gaze and my heart and eventually becomes part of my own experience; and at the end a part of me remains, with photographs, inside this story.

Taranto wedding and elopement photography by Marco Colonna of Apulia Italy

Hi, my name is Marco Colonna, I live and take pictures every minute of my days. I was born in Cosenza in 1984 in a neighborhood in the city center. I define myself as a dreamer, I love to observe, I am curious and I look for simplicity. I was very young when I started to take an interest in photography, but it was the scouting experience that stimulated me and led me to cultivate this passion. With the passage of time, it has evolved, taking on the forms of a dream in which to believe. Photography has always intrigued and excited me, not only for its strong ability to convey emotions but above all for its great power to tell stories. In life as in photography, there is always something to learn so I am always looking for something new. I am fascinated by the beauty, emotions, spontaneity, and wonder that can emerge at any time of the day. I like to capture these moments with naturalness and respect because they are destined to last over time. On the day of the wedding, I tell the day as it was lived, trying to bring back the joy, love, and emotions of the spouses. [Taranto Wedding Photographer]

Tuscany and Florence wedding and elopement photography by Damiano Salvadori of Italy

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]

Naples wedding photography by Federica Ariemma of Campania, Italy

Hi, I'm Federica! I was born in Naples in 1987. I have coffee flowing in my veins and a strong Neapolitan soul. I am strongly linked to my land and to my origins, even though I feel I belong to the whole world. I love Asia, Asian peoples, and Buddhism. I love traveling, as soon as I can I prepare my backpack and leave. I am a greedy perennially on a diet, I love white chocolate and pizza, strictly Neapolitan. I love simple things, I like habits and routine, but I am one with headshots. My motto is “let you go“. I am precise, determined and solar. I look tough, actually I’m very sensitive. My colleagues nicknamed me “the sergeant” because when I work I am serious and very strict. I don’t let one pass. Despite this, at every wedding, I am moved. I hide the tears behind the camera, the only place where I feel safe. I abandoned after a 9-year course of study and a specialization in Food Science to live of photography. I love weddings. I love the emotions of the spouses, the unpredictability of people, I love tears, deep looks, intertwined hands, the warmth of families, strong hugs, children who run and get dirty, grandparents who fall asleep. I try to tell every story in a simple, natural and elegant way, as I perceive it and live it. I simply let myself be carried away by emotions and by the day, without directing it or modifying the natural course of events. I like to think that my story will be a memory forever in someone’s life. I love this job because, in reality, for me, it’s not a job and, as someone says: “love your job and you’ll never work a day of your life”. [Naples Wedding Photographer]

Tuscany and Siena smaller wedding photography by Andrea Sampoli of Italy

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!

Carlos Porfírio is a Lisbon-based documentary-style wedding and elopement photographer. Carlos serves couples getting married all around Portugal as a member of the Wedding Photojournalist Association - WPJA.

I was born in Luanda, Africa, and I lived there until I was 10 years old, a time when I moved to Portugal. I've started my career working as a designer and web designer in an advertising company, but quickly I noticed that I was missing a very important part of my nature - to be connected to people and all the emotions related. I then studied the direction of photography and worked for a while in TV, fiction, advertising, as well as contributing as a freelancer photographer in different agencies. Since then, I've been connected and inspired by different people, places, and cultures, by a simple smile, a color, or just with mother nature in its state of the art. I work professionally in the wedding industry for more than 12 years, on behalf of Laranja Metade [Half Orange] brand, as a parallelism to those looking for their soul mate (the half part). In the past years more as Destination Wedding Photographer. I want to be true and honest when I document a wedding. To observe and write creatively all the feelings related to the key and unexpected moments, in a natural way. I will be honoured to embrace this journey with you. [Lisbon 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!

Perugia wedding photography by Francesca Vitulano of Umbria Italy

Francesca Vitulano - Documentary wedding photographer based in Umbria. Hi, I'm Francesca and I'm the female soul of "Framelines" studio. I’ve been photographing weddings professionally since 2012 all over Italy and abroad. With a Bachelor Degree and a Master in Fine Arts, I became interested in photojournalism while studying Set Design. Started with a strong passion, photography became year by year my full-time job. My professional dream was to work in an international and dynamic environment and "Framelines" offered me the chance to work with couples coming from all over the world, to be creative and have the chance to experiment. I really didn't think twice. I have quickly learned the rules of wedding photography and thanks to my sensitive soul I've discovered that my war-horse is to enter completely in intimate with the subject I'm shooting and this allows me to be constantly present documenting the wedding with an unobtrusive vision in order to enhance the raw emotions and the un-posed spontaneous moments. I now photograph between 30-40 weddings a year and I’m lucky enough to be involved in very different ceremonies (Catholic, Civil, Symbolic, Jewish, Indian, Arabic, Orthodox) that give me the chance to enter strictly in contact with different cultures from all over the world. Beside the Italian territory, I also flew over Italy border for capturing destination weddings abroad: In my "photographer passport" you can see few traditional three-days weddings in Morocco, two international marriages in the Netherlands and a Scotland wedding. The best feedback I received is when one of my clients tell me that through my images you can really touch the positive vibes of the wedding day, you can really see people enjoy. That's true because wedding photography is something I authentically love and enjoy doing. Professional Association: - I'm an active member of the Wedding Photojournalist Association (WPJA), one of the most prestigious photography associations for international weddings.

My name is Federico Pannacci, I’m a professional wedding photographer and lifestyle. I really love to fly and live in tuscany with my mate, my daughter and my red cat ( Spritz! ). I never liked my image on the mirror, I never felt my shape as something of photogenic, for these reason I met photography, it was the way to study how to express the shape of the life in the same way my heart and mind felt it. This is the reason why my photography is genuine and natural but contaminated from a dreamy and artistic trend. [Siena Wedding Photographer]

I have always photographed. At the very beginning, I studied architecture, my obsession was to take perfect photographs. My problem was always the people who “soiled” the places, squares, and buildings that I photographed during my travels or exits. But then something changed. A bit like in "Ciàula discovers the Moon", the novel by Pirandello in which the miner boy once remains ecstatic by the beauty of the Moon despite having always had it in front his eyes but never really looked at, I fell in love with people. I studied photojournalism and learned how to tell the beauty of reality and people even in their imperfection, which is an essential part of the uniqueness and soul of everything. Over the years I then specialized in wedding photojournalism and family portraits. Basically, reportage photography consists of telling an event, a situation, a story. This approach applied by an important event such as a marriage or even a simple family moment is much more alive and personal, truer. Henri Cartier-Bresson, one of the forefathers of photojournalism, once said that to photograph is to place the mind, the eyes and the heart on the same target line. I have always tried to make this sentence my own because if you manage to converge in a single photo, in addition to what you see the energy of a moment, the intensity of an emotion, the perception of an atmosphere, well, that's amazing!

Naples wedding and elopement photography by Luigi Reccia of Campania Italy

I have the restless mind of those who have dreams and desires hidden among the stars. The first thing I clearly remember is when at the age of 6 I started to draw copying from a Mickey Mouse comic book. From then my entire life has been linked to visual art. I've always been a stubborn person, this has led my life through good and bad decisions until in 2008 I decided to become a photographer. My first passion anyway has always been music, my mother and father are two rock 'n' roll souls who gave me good ears and the chance to express myself with the things I love the most. When I started shooting pictures, I started from music. I've been following local bands, gigs, and festivals for years, I've worked (I still am) in recording studios as photographer/videomaker. There never been a single day without listening at least one song in my life. Little by little I entered into the wedding business, which is my main activity since 2012. I'm a lifetime daydreamer, a romantic soul who still believes in good simple things such an eye-contact, a hug or a moment of silence staring at a warm sunset. I search for the truth hidden in one of those moments, taking pictures for me means capturing a moment between two moments, and giving it to eternity, stopping time. I think to myself as a free astronaut, a cosmonaut who sails aimlessly and relentlessly in the sidereal space of his thoughts and curiosities. I live among the stars. [Naples Wedding Photographer]

Apulia and Lecce wedding photography by Daniele Panareo of Italy

I have always loved photography. Maybe that's why after many sacrifices it has also become my job. I studied Physics at the University of Salento in Lecce and after graduation, I did a training internship in Health Physics at the oncological hospital of Lecce, in Puglia. After so many years of study, it is difficult to question what has been created and totally change life and work. I did it. I have been dealing with wedding photography for several years now and I specialize in photographic reportage. I love telling stories: especially when the main topic is love. My base of operations is in Puglia but I work all over the world. [Lecce Wedding Photographer]

Ascoli Piceno wedding and elopement photography by Marco Tartaglia of Marche Italy

I am married to Benedetta and the father of two wonderful children. I love music, especially Radiohead for how they manage to capture me in their world. I love Martin Scorsese's TV series and cinema. And I love photography. I love photography because it is the tool that most of all helps me to know who I am and to relate to the reality that surrounds me. It helps me to look deeper and to tell with an intensity my daily life and what I look at. I immediately had a predilection and a particular attitude towards reportage photography, probably because I find it no-frills, direct, and sincere. It is with a photojournalistic approach that I tell about weddings, without inventing anything, letting myself be amazed by what happens, as the first witness of a wonderful show. I am part of the Icon Photos photographic collective, a place of friendship and growth, a precious help in front of my work and the journey of my life. [Ascoli Piceno Wedding Photographer]

Rachele Mosolo, born in 1990. I define myself as an enthusiast of things. A hardened dreamer who has always been passionate about photography, good music, travel, new cultures, people and to touch things by hand, for me true beauty is the simple reality of the world, sweet or cruel it may be. I love the reportage and fully immerse myself in what surrounds me. I photograph any situation along this line, I think it is the best way to create eternal memories: those photos that even after years make you relive the emotion of the first time. I love true love and I want to photograph it "up close": I like the idea of being a witness of your emotions and I want to tell them with feeling, delicacy, simplicity, and sense of reality.

We are absolutely delighted with the pictures, we cannot thank you enough :) One problem though, how am I supposed to pick out a few favourites when there are too many favourites! We loved so many of them that I couldn't pick any shots in particular, but some of the action shots are brilliant, particularly whilst we are dancing. It bought back so many great memories from the day and you have captured the atmosphere perfectly. Going through the pictures it was like we were there again. Everyone loved them and commented how much it bought back the day. I honestly cannot praise you enough for the pictures, we were so happy :D
