F.A.Q

Here under I have collected some of the frequently asked questions. Please don’t hesitate to write me if you have other different questions!

WHAT'S YOUR PHOTOGRAPHIC STYLE?

I love the raw emotion and spontaneity of photojournalism and candid photos, my photography is straight and natural, no poses. I’m also fascinated by artistic and conceptual photography that influence my vision.

 

WHERE DO YOU LIVE AND WORK?

I live in Tuscany in a small village in the countryside between Siena Arezzo and Florence but I can meet your needs and move in all Italy and worldwide. I can speak English and French. I don’t fear airplane or boat! For transfers I add transfers costs more than my starting price. Don’t hesitate to write me for an exact estimate.

HOW LONG DO YOU WORK DURING MY WEDDING?

I will stay with you the time you need, my first package is 2 hours till a full coverage of 12 hours, from the getting ready to the reception dancings. If you would like me to stay more we can talk about it. Write me for a specific request.

DO YOU WORK ALONE OR WITH AN ASSISTANT?

I work both alone and with a second photographer, it depends on the event. For little events with few guests I prefer to work alone to keep the intimacy of the situation. For big events and long duration I need a second photographer: it is useful to tell what happens in the same time (the getting ready of both bride and groom) and to have two different points of view during all the moments, furthermore to be a supporter.

DO YOU NEED SOMETHING PARTICULAR IN THE WEDDING DAY?

I need to well know the plan of the day in order to be ready for everything. I also need to eat something during the wedding day if it is a long service: it’s up to you to choose the menu for me. I prefer to eat in a room close to yours in order to hear what’s happening and come in case of need.

CAN WE ASK YOU FOR THE VIDEO?

I don’t record videos but I have some appreciated video makers that I can suggest you.

WHAT KIND OF CAMERA DO YOU USE?

I use professional reflex digital Canon cameras with luminous lens in order to take photographs with natural light. ( 2 bodies Canon 5D Mark 3 + canon 35mm II f1.4 + canon 50mm f 1.2 + canon 70-200 f2.8). I use flash only in the night or during the dancings.

HOW MANY PHOTOS WILL YOU GIVE US?

I dont’ have a limit of photos to take. Depending on the event and what happens in the event I usually take more or less photos. (ex. in a 12hours coverage I usually take 4.000 photos). A selection of the best photos will be processed to tell the wedding story. (ex, in a 12hours coverage I process about 250 photos). I will give you all the photos high resolution jpeg.

WHO IS GOING TO CHOOSE THE PHOTOS AND HOW MUCH TIME DOES IT TAKE FOR THE DELIVERY?

I am the only one that will live your wedding day from the beginning to the end so I will choose and edit the photos for your wedding story!According to the period of the year I will use from 2 to 6 months to give the photographs to you.

HOW MUCH TIME BEFORE AND HOW CAN I BOOK YOU PHOTOGRAPHIC SERVICE?

My suggestion is to book as soon as you fall in love with my photos and you decide that you want me to tell your story: This is the right moment! Photography and memory are the only things of your day that will stay alive and this choice should be done with attention but with emotional impact too. Usually people book from one year before on but sometimes it is too late because there are several very requested dates. The photo service will be booked by signing a contract and paying a deposit.

WHICH KIND OF WEDDING BOOK DO YOU SUGGEST?

I suggest both a digital wedding album and a traditional one where the photos are glued on the pages. I prefer the traditional one, but you have the last word on it. I can send you a price list of them with photos and details.

SO, HOW MUCH IS IT FOR THE SHOOTING?

Please contact me by the CONTACT page or by e-mail and write me down what you need: I will be glad to send you a customed and exact estimate.

WHAT IS THE E-SESSION AND TRASH THE DRESS?

The engagement session is a couple’s photoshooting. It is usually done before the wedding to take confidence with the camera and the photographer, in order to be more relaxed on the wedding day. It is also only useful to have some very good pictures of the couple made with quiet and time. You can use these photos for partecipations or to thank your guests, or simply for you! I suggest to choice a location that the couple’s love or a dear one. Please see some examples HERE.
