A few info you might find useful
What is your style?
This, of course, is the most important question as my style will give an imprint to the pictures of your wedding. It isn't easy for me to define my style but let's say that I am a reportage photographer and make stories for magazines. This is how I take pictures: spontaneous, natural and generally not posed. When you will receive the pictures you will re-live the wedding day , from beginning to end. I will take your portrait and the family portrait as I know you want to remember your day with your relatives but I will spend most of the time moving around, unnoticed, looking for gestures, for images that can tell your story. If you have specific needs, during the day, you can call me at any time and I will be there to take the photographs you want.
How many photographs will you give us?
Depending on the situation and the length of the wedding I would normally give you 120 professionally retouched images in high resolution and ready for printing. If you wish to have more retouched photos there are different packages you can choose from. In any case, you will also receive 100 extra photos lightly retouched (colour correction and contrast) in high resolution. My retouching isn't strong, I do the same corrections that would have been done a few years ago in the darkroom. I do not soften skin and remove things or people from the images.
How and when will we receive the photos?
I will send you the retouched images ready for printing through my online gallery from which you can download (using a password) or share the images. As retouching in a proper way is quite time consuming I will send you the final images within 60 days from the wedding. I might find the time to retouch them earlier but I can't guarantee beforehand.
What is the cost for the photography of the wedding?
It really depends on how many photographers you need and the length of the wedding.
Can you make portraits of our guests?
Yes, I can provide a small portrait studio on location. This could be nice to entertain the guests for half an hour, taking a portrait of each of them in a fun way. After the wedding you can send each of them the portrait taken during your wedding. I use three studio flashes which I set up beforehand so that they will be ready once we get on location.
Where are you based?
I am based in Montepulciano, Tuscany, but this doesn't limit my area of action. I am willing to move out of my area or even abroad to photograph your wedding.
How can I book and how long can you hold my date?
You can contact me either by phone or email. We can arrange a Skype talk to get to know each other and, if possible, at a later stage it would be great also to meet you in person. Regarding the reservation, from April to November I can hold you a date for about a week, as this is the busiest time of the year. In the winter I can hold it longer. Once you you have decided you wish to have me as your photographer we will sign an agreement and the date will be locked after the payment of a deposit.
Feel free to contact me at any time and I will reply at the soonest.
