Q: What is your photographic style?

I do not think I have a definite style, I love having fun with the camera and I want to create images that have the ability to excite even after tens of years.
I prefer photographic reportage. The photographer must to tell the wedding day observing it as an external spectator, curious like a childen and almost never intrusive, trying to steal the moments and emotions, blocking them in photos.I want to tell a story and to make it use photo-journalistic techniques that allow me to grasp the spontaneity of events leaving you free to enjoy the day and to stay with your friends and relatives more expensive without undergoing any constraint. Only in this way will I be able to discreetly capture unique and unrepeatable moments
I like sometimes to shoot some particular posed pictures that however will never require a lot of time.

Q: In addition to the photo service we would like to make the video. Do you offer this service?

A: I can provide to the video service by very good videographers with whom I usually work. Even the video will be realized with the same reportage style.

Q: Will you work on your own at our wedding?

A: The reportage style is based on “seize the moment” trying to tell the day as fully as possible: that’s why I always prefer to work with a trusted second photographer so to provide a service with attention to every detail.

Q: We like the reportage style, but we’d love to have also the traditional group photo with our family and friends.

A: The group photo is always carried out at a wedding, of course it would make little sense to publish them on my site or blog, but there are absolutely no problems in realizing them.

Q: Once that the photo service is realized, what are the solutions for my photos?

A: There are several and personalized solutions according to your needs. From a simple DVD with shots of the service (plus a selection of photos processed and optimized), the creation of albums with photos printed (with multiple proposals and personalized solutions) or in the form of digital photobook.
