What is your photographic style?


We have a reportage style, we love to photograph spontaneous moments and emotions to tell a story of your wedding day. We try to be as discreet as possible so as not to interfere with your day and therefore making it totally yours. We tell what really happens and, if nothing happens, cannot capture much… If you would like your day to be special try to render it unique with emotional moments, details, such as, lighting that creates the right atmosphere during the dances, but above all ensuring that the guests participate as much as possible to render each situation photographically interesting. Help us to make your day unique.

Do you shoot classic photos?

It is important to remember that the “reportage” style does not guarantee the presence of all the guests in the photographs. If you would like to ensure that all the guests are photographed please ask us for a group photo or for photos with your parents, grandparents, brothers and sisters, or best man and bridesmaids. Perhaps you could help us with a written list of the groups that you would like included.
We’d be glad to incorporate them.

Do you need to know anything particular about the wedding day?

All the information that you can give us! Details of timing and location(s). Telephone numbers of trusted friends. Will you be doing something in particular during the day? Have you a family member that absolutely must be photographed? Will there be speeches from the guests or wedding couple? Please let us know as many details as possible about the plan for your day so that I do not miss any special moments.

Do you only work in Tuscany?

No. We work in Italy and all over the world. Clearly the price will vary according to the distance to the location. Please contact us for a detailed quotation.

Is the album included in the price of the photographic service?

The album is not included in the price because, when working with wedding couples of various nationalities, not all couples are interested in having printed photographs. Naturally we can offer you a vast selection of albums, traditional or not.

Do you offer video services?

We concentrate exclusively on photography in order to always offer our client the maximum quality provided by professionals specialised in their work and not those who do a bit of everything. Therefore we rely on external video services that have our “reportage” vision, who use natural light and not various spotlights, and above all who work in harmony with us. It is important that the photographer and videographer are co-ordinated for a good service. If you choose us as your wedding photographers we would be happy to put you directly in contact with them so that you can handle this service autonomously. In case you will decide to have a different videographer (not one we have suggested) it is imperative that you inform us of this immediately. To collaborate with a videographer it is important that our work and theirs can function correctly. Sometimes it is possible that photographers and videographers are unable to work together at the same time due to a conflict of styles.

How much time does it take to deliver the photographs?

The photographs are usually delivered after 4 – 6 months. We like to follow all the phases of our work, from taking the photographs to the final postproduction. Having lived the moments of the day, and photographed the emotions, we cannot trust others to handle the final part of my work. Therefore if we are working taking photographs during the “wedding season” we cannot physically be in the studio doing postproduction work. We believe that it is better to wait a month longer and have a great result than have a less caring service. We love giving our best in all stages of our work.

How will you deliver my photographs?

The photographs of the day will be supplied on an online gallery. All the files will be delivered in high resolution and without our watermark.
The selection is made by the photographers simply because the story of your day is seen through their eyes.

Where should we place your table at the reception?

It is important to have a table, if possible alone or with other members of the “work crew” where we can sit and have a few moments rest and some food. We do not ask for the menu provided for the guests, a reduced menu is ok, but something that will enable us to work at our best. However it is important that we are not too far from the wedding couple and, if possible, have a table in the same room and close to them so that we do not miss an important moment, speech or toast that might take place during the meal.

How much will we spend for our wedding photographic service?

It is very difficult to set a price in advance because each wedding service is different. Please contact us to discuss your requirements in detail so that we can price accordingly.
One thing that we would say though, having ourself married, is that we know that it costs a lot to organise the wedding day to be the best. iI is also true that for all the money spent on the various services the only things that will remain as a record will be your photographs. It is therefore indispensable that you give this service the correct importance.

We have heard around that there are photographers at various prices. What do you have that is different from the others?

Yes, you’re right, there is a jungle of prices around and we’d like to dwell on it a bit.
Meanwhile, our first advice is to choose only professional photographers and not a friend, acquaintance or, even worse, somebody who does it to supplement their income.

We decided to specialise in one sector, to open a studio, and thereby give guarantees to our clients. The wedding day is too important, is unique and cannot be left in the hands of a person that does not offer guarantees.

Our studio is formed by us: Damiano and Donatella, both professional and international award winning wedding photographers. We take no more than one weddings on the same day to ensure the presence of us because it is only right that you are photographed by the person you have selected and not by “the lad in the shop”. 
We are also part of numerous organisations, both national and international, which are important both guaranteeing a quality of work as well as reassuring our client by providing contracts endorsed by the National Wedding Photographer Association. 
We are also known by the Curia di Firenze (Diocesan Administration of Florence) as professionals photographers accredited for photography in all churches.

And finally what is there left to say…
Why are you different to another photographer?
If looking at our shots has made you feel emotional then we think that we have succeeded in answering the question!
