Meet The Photographer
Before diving into wedding photography, you may want to know a little bit about me…
THE PERSON BEHIND THE LENS
Being creative has always been a need in my life. My first approach to art was music, to which I have devoted much of my youth. In the nineties I began my professional career in computer science as a software designer. While It was certainly an interesting and creative job, it didn’t fully meet my needs as an artist. In addition to music, I’ve always been fascinated by visual arts and especially by photography, which soon became my primary interest. In 2006 I was able to quit my job and become a full time photographer.
HOW IT STARTED
My adventure in photography started in the late 1990s during one of my journey alone around the world. The travel experience was so thrilling that I felt the need to share it, but soon I realised that words couldn’t describe what I saw and felt. The old film camera I used to take with me on every travel, instead, turned out to be perfect to tell the story the way I wanted. Suddenly the way I looked at things around me changed. I began looking at everything in a different light and perspective, always on the lookout for an exciting shot. I have never stopped taking pictures since.
Photography to me is not just a job, it is philosophy of life. I love capturing emotions and convey them to the viewer. I work in an unobtrusive fashion to capture people’s true essence. Staged photos can never capture real emotions, hence my love for photojournalism. Besides weddings, I love traveling and landscape photography. I like adventures in the wilderness studying light and the right time to shoot. I start at night to get on the place before sunrise and enjoy first lights of dawn. But what I like the most is creating images that speak for myself and share the emotions that I feel. Check out my landscape photography here.
My style is best described as genuine photojournalism, with a focus on both romantic and fun moments. My strength lies in my ability to listen to what’s going on around, anticipating the moment instead of reacting to it, but also in my deep sense for aesthetics, perspective and composition. To get a better idea, please check out my wedding portfolio, a collection of wedding images that best represent my style.
I don’t want to just give you pictures, my goal is to give you thrilling memories through compelling images that will let you open a window back to your wedding day and relive those moments. I want to create valuable memories that you can cherish for a lifetime. A true story that you can share with your loved ones.
As a wedding photographer I get to be the witness of the essence of human emotion. I am well aware of the importance of my job, the result of which not only lies in my skills as a photographer, but also in my natural inclination to understand love and emotion. My approach to weddings is never the same. I am aware that every wedding is unique, and will do my best to conform to its character and to empathize with you. This is the key to ensure an excellent result that genuinely represents the wedding couple.
I let the events of the day unfold naturally, being prepared to capture them as they happen. For the majority of the day I will be a careful and discrete observer, I will be that dream wedding photographer who goes unseen and takes beautiful photographs of every valuable moment, paying attention even to the smallest details. In addition to the obvious benefits, the unobtrusive approach also allows you to truly experience the intimate of the wedding day, rather than feeling unintentional protagonist in front of the lens.
