Another story I was trusted to write using light, empathy and my little Olympus Pen-F camera. Valentina told me she's used to be in control. I received a programme filled with 'picture times' and I was a little bit worried about this kind of must-carry-out indications. I replied, as I usually do: live your wedding day like you should and I'll be there to document it. She threw me that look...
But, as the day unveiled, I knew we would be ok. Elegance and charm, great decisions about the services acquired, perfect timing. All these little issues that can make or break the couple's good mood were excelently overcomed. Iupiiiii
Let the story begin!
They chose Hotel Caro as their wedding stage. Everything, from preparations to civil ceremony, photo session and party took place on the premises. This allowed for plenty of relaxing time, with no travel involved.
I used the hallway for some refined imagery with Valentina and these little cute girls dressed as bridesmaids.
Outside the hotel, we found some simple and charming corners to show their beauty and love for each other.
We should never forget that group pictures are precious memories. Try to make them fun and relaxed. It's easy if you're just being there as a friend, not as a photographer.
Some more couple and individual shots. Nothing fancy, but true to themselves. I want to show who they really are, not make up some crazy shmensy posing bulshit.
Civil ceremony is getting started. Look for faces and stories behind all the formal things.
Kids are always a treat to follow.
Beautiful autumn day, warm and perfect hour for a golden light.
The church was really small but this usually leads to people getting close to each other. Stories begin to unveil!
Outside for some more group shots. Lovely!
Back to Caro Hotel for the party! But first things first: details! And boy, there were lots of them.
First dance starts with emotions. They danced like champions, with elegance and big smiles on their faces. Bravoooo!
Party is warming up! Watch-out!
There is something always magically in the way people express themselves when feeling good!
Outside for a quick relaxed shot. Uuuuh, chilly! And back to the party!
Throwing the boucquet! Final moments of this absolutely amazing day!
One last picture and it's wedding-over and life-starting for these to wonderful people! Thank you, guys, for your patience and trust! Love you!
