AUGUST 2015. Mauro & Maria got married in Milan (Catholic ceremony in Basilica di San Marco) and had the party at Villa Borromeo, in Cassano D’Adda. A good sample of my reportagistic style in describing the wedding day, with plenty of spontaneous photos and crazy snapshots of the party. I hope you enjoy it.

We love the opportunity to shoot in new locations and when we heard Lydia and Chris’s plans we were instantly very excited about their day! We’ve shot in London a few times now but the Houses of Parliament added a little extra pressure onto the never-ending traffic and people in the city!
Their ceremony took place at the beautiful Westminster Church where, 106 years prior, Winston Churchill was married to Clementine Hozier. It was a short trip across the road to their reception venue at Houses of Parliament where we (and all their guests!) had to be security checked and X-rayed. In the morning Chris looked after their daughter Clementine while he grabbed a late breakfast with his groomsmen, meanwhile Lydia and her maid of honour prepared in style with a hotel room overlooking some of London’s most iconic buildings. We always love how you can tell how in love a couple are on a wedding day, we follow them so closely and looking through our cameras all day we loved just how happy they obviously are together, the glances throughout the day and the smiles on each of their faces.
As we braved the horrendous evening traffic coming out of London, ready for our 4 and a half hour drive home, the thing we talked about more than anything wasn’t the buildings, or crowds or incredible weather, it was just how perfect for each other Lydia and Chris clearly are.
Robert and Alex got married in the charming village of Catignano nestled in the hills of Siena. They travelled from Australia to Tuscany to realize their desire to share their special moments with their guests in that wonderful frame of Siena.
A fantastic Italian garden was the setting for their wedding reportage. The party ended with a romantic launch of flying lanterns in the sky.
Caltagirone is a beautiful, small town in the east Sicily. It is famous worldwide for being one of the loveliest towns of ceramics, because It kept all its pure baroque beauty, with many colorful houses.
The “city of ceramics” picked by Dario and Jessica, a lovely couple, as the perfect location for Their wedding
After the getting ready, the guests and the groom Reached by feet the Church of St. Anne
When Jessica arrived to the Church, the ceremony Began – it was a peculiar ceremony. When the shooting was done, the couple and the guests could enjoy an Italian dinner in one of the beautiful frescoed halls of the Villa , with dances and fun between one course and the other!
They had a great fun at the wedding, and we had a great fun with them, too: congratulations to These lovely people!
On nearly a daily basis I receive emails from wedding photographers asking for help on attracting and converting visits to leads.
So that’s why I decided to sit down and create a product that would help. The Wedding Photographers Conversion Kit is just that. The kit includes a variety of PSD templates which photographers can fill in with their photographs and vendor information.
The kit is then combined with an automated email delivery and search engine optimized landing page to attract and deliver the customized magazine to potential customers.
Here is what’s included:
- 18 PSD files for Adobe Photoshop (PSD files are 8.5″ x 17″ and can be cut down to 8.5″ x 11″ individual pages.
- Video tutorial on turning the templates into a magazine or individual pages.
- Sample HTML landing page optimized for search engines.
- Tutorial on customizing the landing page for your wedding business.
- Video tutorial on how to set up a Mailchimp automated email with your new PDF.
- Text content example for inspiration.
As you can see, a lot went into creating a package that wedding photographers can utilize. So I encourage each photographer to pick up a copy and give it a shot.
Before I finish this up, I want to mention that creating a free download for website visitors is a proven method of converting visits to leads. So offering content optimized specifically for your target market is the best thing you can do for your website, after your portfolio is optimized of course. Check out the Wedding Photography Conversion Kit today.
Listen to an interview with Nigel at Zenologue about the kit as well.
