A romantic wedding in the rural Cilento National Park
The Cilento National Park is a perfect place for those who dream of an intimate countryside wedding. Silke and Antonio live and work in Holland. She gladly accepted to celebrate their big day in the wonderful Cilento, Antonio’s homeland. The couple was looking for a Cilento wedding photographer who would document the day, focusing on the romance. The photography style they were after was clear, it had to be romantic, simple, and most of all, natural. But above all, no posed photography. After visiting my website, Antonio called me and we arranged a visit to my studio. He visited me alone because Silke was in Holland still working. I soon realized they were very demanding with regard to photography, so we had a long talk. Then, right after I showed him some of my latest works, he picked up the phone, called Silke and said to her “I found him!”
I first met her on the wedding day when she was getting ready. We empathized right away and so I realized that all the conditions were perfect for a great photoshoot. The villa where she stayed was large and luminous, and since there were many children, the atmosphere was filled with joy. Silke felt just comfortable despite she never met me, and in addition to that, the atmosphere and the fine environment of the villa gave me the right inspiration, so I shot quite a lot. The ceremony took place in the beautiful church of Santa Maria delle Grazie, in Agropoli.
A Cilento Wedding Photographer into the wild
Right after the ceremony, as they wanted some pictures that would show the beauty of the park, we went to Punta Licosa, one of the most spectacular places in the whole area. The experience was extremely pleasant. Furthermore, the warm light and the charm of the countryside allowed me to document their wedding exactly the way they wanted.
