Wedding photographer in Ravello: a perfect location for a photo shoot on the Amalfi Coast.
Set on the hilltop above the dizzying landscape of the Amalfi coast, Ravello is probably the most peaceful and charming resort of the area. This elegant medieval town is extremely rich in history. It has enchanted visitors for centuries and has provided inspiration to famous composers, musicians, and writers from around the world. The atmospheric and entrancing grounds of Villa Rufolo, for example, have provided Richard Wagner with inspiration for his opera Parsifal.
An enchanting town
Over the centuries, the irresistible allure of Ravello has been attracting the world’s greatest artists. Musicians such as Stravinsky, Bernstein, Rostropovich, Toscanini, Wagner; painters such as Escher, Mirò and Turner; and writers the caliber of Forster, Lawrence and Virginia Wolf all spent time here.
There must be a reason – other than the unquestioned beauty of the town – why Ravello has always exerted a magical influence on visitors, and I guess it is the atmosphere. As you enter the town, it’s like being enveloped by a romantic and otherworldly atmosphere. You will be astonished by a mix of history, art, charm and beauty all around. Not surprising, although I’ve visited and worked in Ravello countless times, it never ceases to amaze me.
Wedding Photography in Ravello
Today, Ravello is a popular destination wedding site. With its typical cobblestone streets, luxurious gardens, historical villas with wonderful vistas, it’s possibly my favorite location to shoot weddings. This enchanting small town perched on the hilltop above Amalfi offers countless opportunities for wedding photography. Breathtaking views such as the one at the Terrace of Infinity in Villa Cimbrone, ravishing exotic gardens and the medieval architecture of Villa Rufolo are just a few examples. Furthermore, Ravello is a perfect interplay of natural and man-made beauty. Filled with exquisite light and vibrant colors, sharp contrasts and nearly infinite perspectives just waiting to be caught in a photograph. It is certainly every artist’s dream.
A walk in the alleyways
In addition to the rich history and the undeniable beauty of the villas and gardens (which remain the primary attractions for wedding couples), there is another engaging perspective for photography: just on every corner, Ravello is full of quaint shops that turn out to be an appealing background for street documentary photography. Therefore, the picturesque and vibrant alleys become a perfect backdrop for my photography style, which is documentary reportage. Hence, to capture the beauty of Ravello and the romance of a wedding at the same time, I usually invite couples to stroll the alleyways and enjoy the architecture, the shops and the town life, while I document the happening from an outside perspective.
My approach to wedding photography
I love catching candid moments and genuine people’s emotion. I prefer natural, non posed photographs such as real-life moments.

I shoot weddings in a documentary style, making use of natural light only. Also, I like shooting from a distance to be able to stay invisible. In my view, the most engaging photos are those candid where people don’t notice the camera. I follow the couple and their guests throughout the day, documenting the natural flow of the events as they happen in an unobtrusive fashion. As a result, couples will get an emotional storytelling that genuinely represents them. I believe that’s the best way to convey emotions in photography.
