I offer to my clients a bespoke photographic service based on their requests and desires. I love to blend my personal vision with my clients’ tastes, personalities and dreams. That’s the reason why I offer a service that is really focused on your event as it unfolds, with some “in between moments” taken, some beautiful couple portraits, not forgetting some timeless family pictures that will be the treasure for your next years to come.
I consider myself a hybrid photographer, and my photography packages includes digital and/or film photos. I photograph with both digital and analog cameras, usually following the event from the preparation of the bride and the groom to the feast – but I have different hourly coverage packages in order to let my clients choose the best for their wedding or elopement.
Beyond the wedding day itself, clients can choose having a photo coverage during the whole wedding weekend, including rehearsal dinner and/or during the brunch the day after the wedding. I also provide bridal and couple portrait sessions even the day before or after the marriage.

Do you travel for weddings/portraiture/editorials?
Of course I do, I love to travel! If you are planning a destination wedding or editorial, feel free to share with me your ideas and plans and I can provide you with a custom quote.
What kind of camera do you use?
I shot with digital and film cameras. I use professional Canon, Pentax and Hasselblad film and digital equipment. I also love to experiment with instant cameras and of course with the legendary Holga.
How to book?
The best way to contact me is to send me an email with all the details of your wedding, so I can define my availability for your date and give you all the information you need. The date will be confirmed once I have received a signed copy of the contract and a deposit.
Will we know each other in person before the wedding?
I’ll be happy to meet you before the wedding to discuss the various aspects of the day and work, know about you and your story and answer to your curiosities. Although it is not always possible to meet in person because of distance, we could talk on the phone or better yet, have a chat via Skype.
What is included in the service?
All the photo packages include all the pictures delivered in JPEG high resolution with permission to reprint; development and scanning of all the film photos (if any) by a professional photo lab; post production of all the digital photos, according to my style; online gallery password protected with all the pictures.
How many pictures do you take during the wedding?
During the wedding day my aim will be to tell your story. To do it at my better, I don’t put any limits on the number of shots, so I can provide only an approximate number of images I will deliver.
What can you tell us about the wedding album?
I chose quality wedding albums, designed to last. I rely on a number of the best print shops to ensure greater choice to my clients. There are both digital and traditional albums, customizable in size, colors and cover. Much depends on your tastes and on what you seek. During our meetings I will explain all the options and the differences between the various types of wedding albums.
What other kind of products do you offer beyond the wedding album?
I offer mini albums for parents or friends, fine-art prints, Polaroid. For other specific requests, don’t hesitate to drop me a line at info(at)chiaranatale(dot)com!
Can we customize the photo service?
Yes. For example, you can add rehearsal dinner or engagement or “the day after” photo sessions. For me it’s important that you tell me all about your desires and your needs. Maybe you could also tell me how you imagine your wedding!
What other services do you offer?
Beyond weddings, I provide photography for portraiture and lifestyle (including family and boudoir), editorials and fashion.
