Hello, thank you for visiting! I guess you're here to find the right photographer to capture one of the most important moments of your life. If I were in your shoes, first of all I'd check out if the visual style of this photographer meets my taste and my expectations (a click on the colored words of this presentation will bring you to your destination ;-)). Perhaps I'd give a quick glance at his portfolio of images to decide whether it is worthwhile to devote more time to his site.
Done? Well: if you're still reading, there is some possibility that our aesthetic and expressive tastes match and I can introduce myself: I'm Luca, owner of a photography studio based in Schio (Vicenza); I specialize in wedding photography and portraiture of couples. I'm based in Northern Italy and I'm especially active in the Veneto region (Vicenza, Venice, Verona, Lake Garda, Treviso, Padova), but I have the good fortune to be able to travel with pleasure throughout Italy and abroad to achieve your photo shoots.
If you're looking for a photographer for a photo shoot that tells a particular time of your life as a couple, such as the marriage proposal, engagement, pre-wedding, elopement, honeymoon, wow renewal, I refer you to this specific page. If the couple has already become a family (congratulations!) and wishes for a photo shoot that portrays, to preserve that particular moment of your family life, these are the photo galleries for you: portraits of children and families and maternity.
If you are instead looking for a photographer for your wedding, I'll briefly explain how I interpret wedding photography. My intention is to recreate the real atmosphere through images and sensations experienced during the day, creating real reportages, from the preparation phase, the ceremony, the reception, enriched with creative and artistic connotations, able to powerfully recall emotions even after many years.
To achieve this goal it is necessary for the photographer to know how to capture these moments, emotions, faces, details that characterize the events, with the utmost discretion, without being intrusive, allowing the newlyweds and their guests to be as spontaneous and natural as possible. Even for the planned portraits captured during the course of The Day, I prefer them to not be altered by overly staged poses, but fully reflect the personality of the couple: their joy, their fun, their excitement, their romance.
The wedding album (real or virtual) is the only tangible reminder of one of the most important days of your life: it must tell the story and should help you relive those moments and emotions every time you browse it . The skill of a photographer lies in the sensitivity, the ability, taste, technique, experience enabling him to document the events as they take place, possibly giving them a magical, stylish, idealized aura whatever the situation, even when the weather and/or the environment is not the best.
The skill of a photographer then consists in the ability to relate to the couple, to put them at ease, to fit their personality and be able to so accurately portray their shyness or their exuberance, their natural confidence or explosive exuberance, their tender romance or their joyful vitality.
If the photographer is able to make a reportage with these characteristics, with these contents, he/she is a real photographer. If this content is able to give a stylistic and expressive as personal, recognizable, not trivial ... it's a good photographer.
There are several international wedding photographers associations that select the best photographers in the world and I am honored to be part of some of them among the most prestigious. It is not easy to take part in them and fewer still win the prizes of the international contest that these associations annually announce. I began - timidly - to participate in these contests in 2011 and, since then, I have had the pleasure of getting several awards, succeeding in 2014 to achieve a cool 6th place in the ranking Photographer AG / WPJA, which is the association that clearly represents me. It is targeted at photographers who play with artistic approach the photojournalistic style. Fortunately there are many good wedding photographers, each with their own style: you task is to identify the most suitable to your tastes, your needs, your desires ... if I'm lucky to be one of them ... do not hesitate to contact me!
«Avevamo già avuto modo di apprezzare in passato alcuni tuoi lavori pertanto, quando abbiamo deciso di sposarci, non abbiamo avuto nessuna esitazione sulla scelta del fotografo! Non hai di certo deluso le nostre aspettative! L'album è bellissimo ed ogni singola foto è in grado di raccontare e far rivivere le emozioni di quel giorno. Ci ha impressionato l'attenzione che hai riservato anche al più piccolo dettaglio unita alla tua innata capacità di saper trasformare una foto all'apparenza normale in un capolavoro di colori e sfumature che la rendono unica ed esclusiva. Da parte nostra non possiamo che ringraziarti e consigliarti a tutti futuri sposi!»
«After searching in both London and Italy, we were most impressed by your portfolio, and by the end of our first meeting we were enormously excited at the idea of having you as our wedding photographer. But you managed to greatly exceed our already high expectations. As we received our wedding pictures in a very short timeframe (and with many extra shots compared to what we had initially agreed!), we realised how much your pictures told the entire, exceptional story of our day, in a wide spectrum of joyful, serious, solemn and intimate moments. You were able to obtain the absolute best from the wonderful natural light of the day and capture the many colours while at the same time leaving all images with a simple, delicate feeling. We appreciated your ability to seamlessly interact with all our guests, Italian and English-speakers alike, to disappear only some moments later and take those beautiful and discrete shots, making so many people wonder whether “The photographer had left already”. We are aware that as the years go by, the superb pictures you took will do the best service to our memories. Each image a story on its own, a flurry of comments, laughs and cries of joy. Thank you for everything!"»
«Steven and I wanted to thank you for your beautiful photos of our wedding at Ramster Hall. The time you spent and the pictures you took not only of the 'big moments' but the quieter ones at The Crown Hotel and Swan Hotel with Steven and I beforehand are just as precious. All our guests commented on your ability to disappear leaving them able to relax and have a wonderful day. We loved the mixture of structured, planned pictures with the natural mid-action shots and the collage meant that no smile, glass of champagne or dance move was missed! We have no doubt that your list of very happy customers must be growing and wanted to add our thanks to that list. Many, many thanks again.»
«Sono già passati 5 mesi dal matrimonio e non c'è giorno che non riviviamo quei momenti grazie alle tue magnifiche foto, che hanno saputo rendere completamente e intensamente le emozioni di quell'evento fantastico! Discreto nella tua presenza, professionale nel tuo lavoro, e soprattutto... nel risultato ...UN VERO ARTISTA, nell'accezione più profonda del termine! Grazie veramente!»
«Il nostro album di nozze è un capolavoro e tu ne sei stato l'artefice! Hai saputo cogliere la magia che regnava in quel giorno tra noi, immortalandone i momenti più importanti ed emozionanti! Quando guardiamo il nostro fotolibro riproviamo tutti i sentimenti d'amore e gioia che hanno regnato durante quella giornata. Sei stato la presenza silenziosa e discreta che, senza metterci in pose false e artefatte, ha saputo realizzare foto naturali, ricche di colori e quasi vive! Ogni volta che le guardiamo è come rivivere quegli attimi, come ritornare alla mattina frenetica dei preparativi, all'entrata in chiesa, allo scambio degli anelli, tra gli amici, i parenti, al ristorante. Come riassaporare sul viso le lacrime di gioia e le risate tra di noi! È un viaggio nel tempo, al tempo più bello! Siamo stati fortunati ad incontrarti.. grazie di cuore!»
