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]

 Francesco Marinelli is an elopement and wedding photojournalist serving Italy, Apulia, Taranto and the Apulian countryside.

Hello! I'm Francesco Marinelli, I was born in a little Apulian village in 1978. Why a wedding photographer? Because there's nothing more interesting and fulfilling to me that compose a story of one of the most exciting days of our life. I love to photograph weddings and elopements for couples in the Apulian countryside, but also to travel and discover new places, meet people and experience new cultures. I love naturalness and spontaneity and always look to capture emotions. It might sound cuddly, but no words explain love as the glances, gestures, and silences of those who really love. Trying to grasp these nuances is more than a job to me: it's a therapy to regain the beauty of life in the folds of nowadays not always reassuring life. [Taranto Wedding Photographer]

Taranto wedding photography by Francesco Gravina of Apulia, Italy

I am a destination wedding photographer. Over the years I focused on the world of weddings and from 2006 I finally started to express my ideas and creativity through reportage photography, or known as photojournalism. Exchanges, workshops, and collaborations with other colleagues in recent years, led me to the conclusion that much heart, and an almost invisible presence of the photographer during the event, creates best results for a real wedding reportage. A beautiful picture is something so subjective. It doesn’t have to be technically perfect to be beautiful, yet it needs to be able to re-evoke unique moments and feelings. In one single image, there is so much to say and, even more, transmit to those who look at it, again and again in time. I am a very sensitive person, one of those lucky who get excited while waiting of the bride, or enchanted in front of a kiss at the sunset. And I like to get involved emotionally in front the love stories of my couples, this is the secret of the success of my “Photo Wedding Stories”. [Taranto Wedding Photographer]

Traditionally speaking, often times it is the couple’s families who help pay for their wedding. However, unfortunately that’s just not possible for everyone, especially these days when the cost of weddings can quickly and easily get out of control. Some couples find themselves in the position of paying for all of their own wedding expenses, which can be quite the financial burden to take on, and about 40% of Millennials end up in this boat. So, how can you stick to your allotted...Read more

Oftentimes when people are considering a venue for their weddings, they search for a location away from home, whether that be ten minutes or ten hours, all just to find what they already have: a place that holds meaning for them, that feels comfortable, or that they find special and memorable. But what could hold more memory, meaning, and importance than your own home? For those looking for that perfect venue, it may not be any further than beyond your threshold.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
