Being a photographer, and especially a destination photographer, travelling is a huge part of my job. Fortunately, I have the chance to visit many beautiful places all year long, and Umbria region is one of the places where I come back often, especially for weddings. These photos are from my last trip to Assisi, one of the well-known towns of the amazing Umbria region.
Napoli (Naples for those are not so familiar with Italian) is my hometown, the place where I belong to and where my heart is, and beyond that, and beyond any kind of taste, is one of the most beautiful cities in Italy. When it’s June Naples is already vibrant of summer’s colors and the sun starts shining bright since the early morning, and this is something that is well-known to all those who decide to come to Naples – yes, we are famous for the sun and the sea, and the colors, and the yellows, and so on.
Is a common thought that doing a creative job means to be free to create how, when and what one wants, without constraints, without any rule. Reality, as always, is a little more complex. To do creative job you need dedication, commitment, discipline, and practice. You have to practice and practice, do it again and again. You must learn to put the technique at vision’ service.
This outdoor wedding in Maratea, in the wonderful Santavenere hotel, has been a pleasure to photograph. Maratea has this sweet breeze, a special mood that becomes even more fascinating during autumn days like this. And the whole wedding of Sarah and Kyle has been particular indeed. Deep love and friendship were in the air, not only between the bride and groom but among all those presents.
When Amy and James asked me to be the photographer of their wedding day in Umbria, I was very, very happy. Umbria region, with such beautiful views and gentle hills, is one of my favorite in the whole Italy – and is one of the most beautiful backdrops for a wedding indeed. This wedding has been the perfect symbol of what every wedding day should be: relaxed, organic, elegant and fun.
Couple portrait session in the beautiful cloister of Santa Chiara in Naples.
I can’t wait to share some images of the wedding of Emily and Arnab, an amazing day with two (yes, two!) ceremonies, the Hindu one and the symbolic one. I adored the location, Villa San Giacomo in Positano, everything here is special: the place, the food, the view, the whole experience has been wonderful. The day started with the getting ready and the Indian ceremony, and this first post about Emily and Arnab’s wedding in Positano, is focused on those moments.
This is the second part of the “Puglia destination wedding inspiration” that I have already published (click on the link to see the first part!). Not many words, just enjoy the evocative Apulian atmosphere.
This is part of the portrait session I took in Ravello during the wedding at the Hotel Belmond Caruso of Shabnam and Guilherme. At this point of my blogging adventure as a wedding photographer, it’s quite clear that sometimes I love to make a special post with only the couple portraits of a wedding. This Ravello wedding at Caruso is no exception.
I cannot describe how Puglia region is special to me and how much I love to photograph weddings in Puglia. Everything in Apulia seems to be made to make people fall in love. What really makes the difference is that warm sense of hospitality and gratitude that everyone has there.
