Positano: The jewel of the Amalfi Coast
“A wedding photographer in Positano feels like a kid in a toy store”
The magic of Positano
Positano is among the most popular wedding destinations In Italy. Considered the jewel of the Amalfi Coast, this picturesque town is a dream destination for couples from all over the world.
Its charming architecture, known as Italian Vernacular and showing Moorish influences with graceful arches and organic forms, makes Positano a unique place in the world.
Due to its architecture and rich history, Positano is a Unesco world cultural heritage site.
With its typical geometric composition of the houses in white washed stucco, the town gently develops vertically on the cliffs with many narrow, stepped alleys that all flow into the main bay.
Seen from the sea, it is pure beauty to admire. The town is set in a dramatic vertical panorama of bright pastel colors.
Positano is also a known destination for artists. The list of those who have fallen in love with the beauty of its land and seascapes is endless: Escher, Steinbeck, Klee, Picasso, Zeffirelli and Liz Taylor are just a few of them.
Wedding Photographer in Positano
With its beauty, luxurious hotels, bars, restaurants, and quaint shops, Positano is a dream place for wedding photography. The picturesque and vibrant pathways are a perfect backdrop for my documentary style. Hence, to capture the beauty of the town and the romance of a wedding at the same time, I usually invite couples to go for a walk and enjoy the shops and the town life, so that I can document what happens from an outside perspective. I especially like shooting the wedding couple walking in the street and mixing with crowd to capture real life moments. The main street, in fact, is often crowded because of the famous “Positano fashion style”, which is one of the main reason why tourists from around the world flock to its streets.
A great opportunity to take amazing photos is from the top of the town. The Town Hall, set high on the hillside, has stunning terraces with breathtaking views, and turns out to be an ideal place for an open air romantic wedding.
It is needless to say that there are nearly endless spots where you can take gorgeous photographs.
My approach to wedding photography
I love catching candid moments and the genuine people’s emotion. I favor natural, non posed photographs such as real life moments.
To get an idea of my vision on wedding reportage, please have a look at some of my favorite shots. You can also check out my wedding galleries.
I shoot weddings in a documentary style, and make use of natural light only. Also, I like shooting from a distance to be able to stay unnoticed. In my view, the most engaging photos are those candid shots just when people don’t notice the camera. I follow the couple and their guests all the day, documenting the natural flow of the events as they happen in an unobtrusive fashion. As a result, wedding couples will get a storytelling that truly represents them. I believe that’s the best way to convey emotions with a photo.
