Wedding in Villa Cimbrone, Ravello, Italy

Sahar, Iranian origins, and Max, German origins, chose the breathtaking beauty of Villa Cimbrone in Ravello to celebrate their marriage.

Villa Cimbrone is located on top of a promontory that offers a breathtaking view of the Gulf of Salerno. With its extensive gardens and romantic views, the villa is an ideal place for a luxury wedding. The most romantic and exclusive place is the “Terrace of Infinity,” which overlooks the Amalfi Coast and is considered one of the most evocative views in the world. After the ceremony, full of emotion and love, celebrated with the Persian rite, we made some shots in the amazing gardens and naturally on the unforgettable “Terrace of Infinity.”

The dinner took place in the fabulous Gothic-style crypt, where Sahar and Max spent the evening with relatives and friends in an atmosphere of joy and emotion.

A Wedding in Amalfi Coast

Have you ever heard about Positano and getting married there?

If not, or if yes, please have a look at my vision of a wedding in Positano with a wonderful couple who decided to have a very small and intimate wedding in the Amalfi Coast.

Last June Julienne and Nick from Australia wanted me to be their elopement photographer in Italy, and the location was exactly Positano. I love to find out the ordinary life in touristic cities and not just showing what is more suitable for all. I love to create a connection between the extraordinary event there, in this case, the elopement, and the daily life of the village.

Destination Wedding in Rome, Italy

Hiaf and Lissia, for friends Lea, are a beautiful Lebanese couple.

They decided to get married in Rome, at Castello Della Castelluccia, a fantastic location, because it allows you to have everything there, in a unique location. The groom and the bride with their relatives and friends have prepared in private rooms.

The ceremony took place inside the castle with an open private church.

We have made the photo shoot in the tree-lined avenue that takes the visitor to the Castle.

Dinner with dancing took place outdoors.

Francesco and Marcela choose ‘Il Borro’ for their luxury wedding in Tuscany

From Sao Paulo, Brazil, to Il Borro an amazing location for a luxury venue in Tuscany, Italy. Francesco and Marcela have chosen this five stars place to celebrate their wedding. The ceremony was in the intimate church of the typical Tuscan village located close to the main body of the Villa, Il Borro. The entire wedding was planned by one of the most important international wedding planner, Robert Cohen, that had chosen the best in every field: florists, music and lights, caterer, video, and photographer.

The bride’s dress has been made in Brazil by two of the most famous wedding tailor of the country, they were at the wedding as guests, and they helped the bride during her dressing.

My team was composed by me and two others photographers. Each of us was involved in different things. One with the bride, one with the groom – alone during their getting ready and together from the ceremony – and the other took photos of the details and followed the guests. I’ve worked mostly of the day in a photojournalistic style, catching candid moments and spontaneous situations. During the couple photo session I’ve moved in the Borro’s garden and old village when the light was good for intimate atmosphere: before and during the sunset – golden hour – and just before darkness – blue hour – so to have the better result in photography. I’ve also use infrared photography.

The reception was on the terrace of Borro with an amazing view of the Tuscan countryside.
