Wedding in Cinque Terre – Monterosso Al Mare

Wedding in Cinque Terre – Monterosso Al Mare My Skype rings, it’s a call from Japan, today I’ll meet Miho and Daniel, an Anglo-Japanese couple.

Olive leaves and lemons on the round tables, the ceremony on a natural terrace with breathtaking views. Guests among the olive trees. They imagine a warm August evening, the slow sunset.

Lake Maggiore Wedding day – Carmen and Severin

Lake Maggiore Wedding day – Carmen and Severin After a fiery summer I start writing again on my blog. The winter season is upon us, I will have more time for study, inspiration and reflection. But let’s dive into the story of Carmen and Severin. I remember this hot and peaceful day in August. The windows look like paintings. The sky is blue, the lake reflectes on Carmen. A huge white cloud passes without seeing us. The room is silent, the dress hanging, fresh flowers waiting in a transparent vase. Carmen eats something with her dearest friend, they laugh, they speak softly. The dress slides over her, her hair is soft and gathered. Carmen looks through the glass at the …

Wedding at Susans Castle – Majano

Wedding at Susans Castle – Majano Every time I come back to Friuli Venezia Giulia for my weddings I discover how beautiful Friuli is. And also this time it didn’t disappointed my expectations. The first unforgettable place was the church in Piazza San Giacomo, Udine. Piazza San Giacomo is in the heart of Udine. Pastel colored small buildings surround the white church. People is used to stop in a cafè under the big umbrellas and drink something in this relaxing environment. Udine is elegant, is quiet, the food is great as well as the wine, of course. Giulia and Luca live not far from here and they are really in love with their city. The places where they grow up …

Wedding at Villa Erba – Cernobbio – Lake Como

Wedding at Villa Erba – Cernobbio – Lake Como Texas, a few years ago. Martina and Andrea don’t know each other. They are both in Texas for work, in the same hotel. They do two different jobs, different worlds. They meet casually thousands of miles from home.

They are on the other side of the world and discover they are both from Bellano. The small village on Lake Como where Andrea Vitali tells his mystery stories. Bellano, Lake Como, today.

2018 – A NEW YEAR OF MEETINGS AS A WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

2018 – A NEW YEAR OF MEETINGS AS A WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER As soon as I get back from the pool I sit down in front of my Mac, after swimming, it’s easier for me to write. I get comfortable, straighten my back and relax my shoulders. I look out of the big window on the garden, the curtains are open, it’s snowing outside. The little bird house that Camilla and I have placed on the terrace doesn’t have any guest yet, unfortunately. I think back to last year. THE TRAVELS Last year I traveled almost 30,000 Km, I shot in Tuscany, Abruzzo, Isola d’Elba. I photographed the beautiful villas of Lake Como, such as Villa Erba, Villa del Balbianello, Villa …

Marriage at the Castle of Vincigliata – Tuscany

Marriage at the Castle of Vincigliata – Tuscany The court of an old farmhouse surrounded by the Tuscan hills was crowded by a small group of guests, who were waiting to go to the Castle of Vincigliata where the wedding of Christina and Carson would take place. I enter in Christina’s room. She is standing motionless looking out the window. I see only the silhouette, the shoulders are stretched, the arms along the body and the fingers slowly moving. “Hi Christine!”, I say. She turns, she’s beautiful and tall. Eyes shining and smiling. She hugs me as a friend. “Hi Matteo, thanks for being here” Her sister on the sidelines, silent. I understand that they need a moment, I don’t  want …

Maternity Photographs on Lake Como

Maternity Photographs on Lake Como Here we are, a dream come true, a motherhood sought and deserved to be celebrated, lived and photographed. Waiting are rare moments, intense, dreamy, seesaw, unforgettable and sometimes forgotten. As a father I would relive them 100 times but we are just satellites that revolve around a complex world that forms itself, and is a bit easier. In Laura’s smile anyone can see all the happiness of a dream. The images flow quickly when the eyes close in the evening trying to sleep. The “if”, the “but”, the hopes, the insecurities dance on the ceiling of the room. But also a cheerful and spiteful face, a breathless ride on the grass, a ball in the …
