A romantic wedding in the rural Cilento National Park
The Cilento National Park is perfect for those who have in mind an intimate wedding in the countryside. Silke and Antonio live and work in Holland. She gladly accepted to celebrate their most important day in the beautiful Cilento, Antonio’s native country. They were searching for a Cilento wedding photographer who would document the day, capturing most of all the romance. The photography style they wanted was pretty clear: it had to be mainly romantic, simple and natural. Most of all, no posing photography. After visiting my website, Antonio called me and immediately made an appointment to my studio. He visited me alone because Silke was working in Holland. He was very demanding in regard of photography, so we had a very long talk. Just after I showed him some of my latest works, he picked up the phone, called Silke and said “I found him!”
I first met her on the wedding day while she was getting ready. We immediately empathized and I soon realized that all circumstances were perfect for a great reportage. The villa where she stayed was spacious and luminous, and there was a joyful atmosphere, also due to the presence of many children. Silke felt pretty comfortable, although she never met me, and in addition to that, the festive atmosphere and the elegant environment of the villa provided me with valuable inspiration, so I shot a lot. The ceremony took place in the beautiful church of Santa Maria delle Grazie, in Agropoli. Right after, as they wanted their photoshoot surrounded by nature, we went to Punta Licosa, one of the most beautiful places of the National Park.
The experience was extremely pleasant. Furthermore, the magic light and the charm countryside allowed me to document their wedding exactly the way they wanted.
