Frequently Asked Questions

Where are you based?2022-11-01T21:56:50+00:00

I am based in Umbria and Tuscany. I know the area and all its most characteristic and choreographic aspects very well.

Do you work only in Tuscany and Umbria?2022-11-01T21:56:54+00:00

I do photo shoots all over Italy and occasionally in Europe. I love traveling and meeting new cultures. I have done wedding shoots in Paris, Nice, Barcelona, Majorca and Zurich. In recent years I have worked on high fashion sets in Milan.

How far in advance should I book the photo shoot?2022-11-01T22:02:16+00:00

Typically 12 to 8 months before your wedding date. However, there are some very popular dates, typically on weekends in June, July and September that are booked well in advance, even a year and a half in advance.

My advice is to set the date with me as soon as you have it finalized.

How can I hire you for our wedding?2022-11-01T22:05:07+00:00

It is very simple! You can send me a quote request via the “Get a quote” form or send me the details to prepare your contract via the Wedding form page.
As soon as I receive them I will prepare your contract which will reach you via e-mail within 24/48 hours.
To officially set the date you need to sign the contract and pay a deposit.

What is your photographic style?2022-11-01T22:11:58+00:00

I started as a pure reportage photographer but over time I have also integrated a part of editorial style. I love to tell genuine emotions and that is why, for most of the day, I will tell your wedding with the sensitivity that characterizes me.
We will devote some time to couple photographs, perhaps during the hours of the day with the best light, which will be done in a more editorial style.

Do you deal only with wedding photography or also with other things?2022-11-04T21:21:26+00:00

Weddings occupy most of my photographic activity.
I am an expert in antique analog photography and alternative printing techniques dating back to the late 1800s. I organize workshops throughout Italy and collaborate with art galleries. I designed and built the cameras with which I make wet collodion plates.

Can you also provide video service?2022-11-01T22:14:14+00:00

Yes, certainly! I regularly work and collaborate with different realities in Italy.

We have already hired a videographer, is that a problem for you?2022-11-01T22:14:58+00:00

No problem of course. I am predisposed to work profiquently in a team even with operators I do not know. However, it would be important for the videographer to adopt a similar style to mine so that we can work in harmony.

Do you work alone or in a team?2022-11-01T22:18:46+00:00

I always work with a second shooter; it is an integral part of all the packages I offer. However, in special cases, it is also possible to hire me alone.

We also desire group and family photographs. Do you take them?2022-11-01T22:20:12+00:00

Absolutely yes!
Formal group and family photographs are part of the photographs I take at each service. We will identify with you or your wedding planner the most appropriate time to take them.
I always recommend preparing a shooting list so you can be sure not to forget anyone and proceed expeditiously.

How many weddings do you photograph each year?2022-11-01T22:25:48+00:00

I sign no more than 25 wedding photo shoots each year plus a few smaller services.
This is because my way of photographing is very particular and absorbs so much energy. I always have to be 100% to ensure that each couple who hires me receives the best photo shoot possible. As much as possible, I avoid taking consecutive engagements in places that are far apart from each other.

How much does your service cost? Do you have any special packages?2022-11-01T22:27:26+00:00

My photography services are customized and vary in cost depending on the hours of engagement, services included, and distance from my base. I offer packages on an hourly basis, from 6 to 10, maximum 12 hours.

Do you do drone photography?2022-11-01T22:28:30+00:00

Yes, I have a photography drone that I always carry with me and use as needed.
Aerial photography service is always included in packages and is subject to the Italian “No fly zones” and, of course, weather.

What is the turnaround time for photographs?2022-12-29T20:51:04+00:00

On average, it takes me less than a month to deliver the processed photographs.
This time varies depending on the time of the season in which your wedding will take place. Weddings celebrated between May and June have a shorter lead time while events photographed in September typically have longer processing times. Usually the longest waiting time is less than two months.

How do you deliver the material?2022-11-01T22:33:11+00:00

All photographs are uploaded to galleries in a cloud and are shared with you through private galleries under passwords.
These galleries contain the photos in high resolution and allow convenient downloading to anyone with access. This way you will have for at least one year a backup available online and can enjoy your photographs at any time simply by accessing the gallery.

Can you make a photo album for us?2022-11-01T22:34:46+00:00

Yes of course! My studio relies on a famous international printing lab that produces one of the most beautiful photo albums on the market.
The albums I offer are eco friendly, produced with materials from certified renewable sources and solvent-free colors.

A small masterpiece that respects our beloved planet!
