Frequently asked questions: everything that you may need to know about me
I’m based in Vicenza (also called “The city of Palladio”, a city with many beautiful villas of the XVI century), very close to Lake Garda, Venice, Lake Como or any other destination in Northern Italy. I am a couple of hours away from Tuscany by car, and the Amalfi Coast, Sicily or Apulia by plane. I’m a Destination Wedding Photographer and I love to travel for my job.
How long will you stay with us?
Normally, I will stay with you throughout the day, from the time that you get ready until the first dance (up to 11 hours). I offer different packages, depending of the hours of coverage needed in order to suit all need and budgets. The Wedding Packages vary from 6 to 11 hours. To receive my brochure with all the services and prices write me an e-mail or view “Services” section to have the complete list of facilities.
What is your Photography Style?
My wedding photography style is a perfect blend of reportage and portrait photography. I therefore define my style as Fine Art Wedding Photography, your emotions made in Italy. I deeply love this photographic genre because I love life and its simplicity regarding the things which I consider priorities: the beauty of life made up of serenity and family. I love Beauty in all its forms and I love give you amazing pictures of you.
Do you shoot in JPEG or RAW?
I shoot all of my images in Raw. My editing style needs to be based on all the informations the raw file can guarantee to give you the best results.
Do you do destination weddings? What additional fees are added with destination weddings?
My activity is mainly based in Italy but I can work for clients all around the world. My destination wedding photography packages are my standard ones plus the cost of travel and accommodations.
How many photographs will you deliver?
The number of photos I deliver varies depending on the coverage time chosen, from 300+ pictures. With the Exclusive wedding package, I will deliver a selection containing a minimum of 800 photographs which are perfectly post-produced and delivered at full resolution through an elegant USB pen-drive or online service call “Wetransfer”, so you may print them independently with exceptional results.
Do you use Photoshop and Lightroom?
I want my photographs to be beautiful straight out of camera, but I provide some important color, tone and exposure adjustments with Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop to enhance the natural atmosphere of my images. If there are any special requests, they can be evaluated.
Do you offer additional services?
Of course! Ask me about additional services like Engagement, Trash the Dress, The reharsal dinner, The Morning After, The Pregnancy, etc…Many couples who choose me as photographer of their wedding, involve me also for their engagement shooting. This is the best way to know each other before the wedding, without the pressure and excitement of the wedding day, and of course to see how I work and to have beautiful pictures of you!
Do you provide video service?
Yes. I work with a team of amazing videographers who use the same approach and style as I do.
Do you concede printing rights?
Yes, you can print as many photos as you want, wherever you like and however you like.
Do you have insurance and are you a full time wedding photographer?
Yes, I have insurance and my italian professional tax code is 04029730241.
Can you print an album for us?
I offer fine art albums printed with high quality pigment inks on the best paper in commerce. I have many different type of albums, and boxes for keeping photos intact, to choose from, all hand made in Italy: my suppliers are highly-skilled artisans who guarantee top quality luxury products. After testing the durability, print quality/consistency, and cover style options, I mainly work with “GraphiStudio” and “5punto6”! Check out my services page!
Do you do group and family portraits?
Yes! Always, I think they are very important to give you but often they are not artistic photographs. When my assistant photographer will take group portraits, I will take other artistic pictures for you.
My venue is really dark. How does your studio handle these situations and can I see samples?
I’ve shot in the darkest place and reception halls so no need to be worried about it. If I can and it’s really needed I can set up additional lighting to ensure we get bright pictures. But I use cameras with superb low-light performance and lenses with low apertures.
How long does it take to get my photo-service?
I edit and post-produce all the file by myself. It is important for me to maintain my style and my quality. So the time could vary depending from the season…in winter you can get your file in two months; in autumn, when I’ve to work on most of the wedding of Spring/Summer season, can be necessary up to six months.
How long does it take to get my album?
As for the other products, production times vary. However you can expect to receive your album 4-5 weeks after placing the order.
Do you always ask for the authorization to use the images?
Yes I do, it is essential for me to share and to communicate through the web the work I do.
Do you offer training courses for other photographers?
I periodically offer training workshops on lighting, composition, couple photography, portrait photography. I also provide mentoring or private sessions in person. If you would like to improve and help your photography style to grow please do not hesitate to contact me!
