Wedding in Villa Iachia – Ruda – Valentina and Dean – June 29th, 2013

Here we are again in one of my favorite villas in Friuli, Villa Iachia in Ruda. A very elegant villa with a huge garden that not only allows guests to enjoy the evening but also helps photographers to find great location for pictures ! Valentina and Dean are a couple from Trieste, which held a awesome party. As always we started from the preparation of  Valentina, followed by her mother and her closest friends. Then we moved to where Dean was going on a nice aperitif pre ceremony, the church was very close. After the ceremony, another appetizer, post ceremony in front of the church … with all the guests and other friends … and then again in Villa Iachia …

Family portrait in Italy – Laura, Leandro e Thiago

Family portrait in Italy Matteo is an amazing photographer. I contacted him only a few weeks before the event and he accommodate me without any complaint. As at that time we were in two different countries he set up a Skype call to get to know each others and for him to understand our personalities and what we wanted to get out of our photos. I appreciate ceremony photos that are not posed, as if they were rather excerpts of photojournalism. I needed a photographer that was always present but acted behind the scenes. Matteo did this and more. He had in fact the sensitivity to take a few traditional shots, those that go on grandma nightstand. We also have …

Wedding in Villa del Balbianello – Lake Como – Hannah and Mark – July 29th, 2013

Wedding in Villa del Balbianello – Lake Como My husband and I live in the UK and saw Matteo’s pictures online. We thought they were wonderful and so were very happy to contact Matteo regarding the photography for our wedding on Lake Como. All correspondence was very clear and precise. Matteo made time to contact us via telephone/Skype to discuss what we wanted. I was fortunate enough to visit the venue for our wedding a couple of months before, at which time Matteo kindly made himself available to meet and discuss everything we wanted for the day. On the day of our wedding the weather turned from bad to worse. Matteo and his assistant were very professional helpful and respectful …

Wedding at Grand Hotel Tremezzo – Como Lake – Victoria and Kent – June 23rd, 2013

This was truly an international marriage, Victoria (Russian), Kent, (Chinese) , some guests from London, some from around the world … I would say it was a nice mix. Victoria is a manager who works in the City of London, a strong character and really a kind person. I first met her via Skype a few months before the wedding. She prepared in a beautiful room at the Grand Hotel Tremezzo on Lake Como, with her close friends and a lot of emotion. Kent was incredible … he was like an boy to his birthday party, he had fun and did entertain everyone with his jokes, tireless! We had fun al night long, in addition to speeches during dinner some …

Wedding at Swiss Diamond Hotel – Vacallo – Switzerland – Barbara and Sandro June 8th 2013

Here we are at a wedding beyond the Italian borders, not far away to tell the truth, in Switzerland. Barbara and Sandro are a beautiful young couple who organized a great bubbling day! The surprises were so many … stating from the  Ferrari F308 that Barbara arrived with at the Church of Santa Croce in Vacallo, where they created a heart of flowers on the entrance door, up to arrival of the hotel with a super fast motorboat. Small note, Barbara and Sandro moved from the church to the motorboat by the Ferrari and we chased them with my car (a Honda hybrid) on the highway … my car is equipped with a small and silent engine  …. I assure …

Wedding in Vernazza – Cinque Terre – Steven and Marie-Eve – June 7th, 2013

What a beautiful day, this wedding was really great! Steven and Marie-Eve are a young couple from Quebec (Canada) who contacted me a few weeks before the wedding. Immediately after graduating, working for a few months they decided to get married. Literally improvising the wedding in Italy. The fact is that no one knew about the wedding, parents included! In short, they took the luggage, their best friends and flew to Italy for the big day. An extraordinary couple, that made me entertained up and down the stairs of Vernazza. The great thing about this story is that they found me and Fabrizio Viscardi (wedding planner) both on the internet. they didn’t know that we are friends and we worked …

Wedding at Grand Hotel Villa San Carlo Borromeo – Valentina and Stefano

I will remember this wedding as one of the most danced … yes! The company was really unleashed. Stefano and Valentina are a young couple who has realized their dream . They chose  a awesome location, Villa San Carlo Borromeo in Senago, Italy. I started the service in the early morning in the lounge where the hair stylist and make-up artists were preparing Valentina, among the admiring glances of other customers and a few games of mirrors (there were a lot!). Valentina’s mother  followed her at all stages, in silence, excited …. then we moved back home for the dress, at one point they lost the comb for the veil … phone calls started .. but shortly  it appeared magically …

Family portrait in Milan Italy – Andrea, Roberta e Mariasole

Family portrait in Milan Italy We were lucky enough to choose Matteo and his assistant Elena for our family portrait photo shoot that you can see here. At the beginning we were clumsy, it is certainly not common pose for a private shoot, but Matteo and Elena were fantastic. They have been able to create an intimate and relaxed situation simply talking and laughing and playing with us. So, at the sunshine of a really warm autumn day, we spent one hour having great time with our daughter playing with soap bubbles and with a blanket on the grass in a park. When we were handed the photographs we were in disbelief. We were very much excited. We could not imagine …

Wedding in Bellagio Lake Como – Ami and Stewart – May 9th, 2013

Wedding in Bellagio Lake Como I cannot recommend Matteo enough! His approach to his clients is sensitive yet confident, and really seeks to understand what you are trying to acheive when documenting a special occasion. In our case, we wanted a very informal, reportage style of photography with no formal set-up/line-ups of our guests (partly because my family hate their photo to be taken!?). Matteo performed this with such ease and care and really set out to make us all feel very comfortable – almost to the point where we forgot he was there. And the result is exactly what we wanted: Matteo capturing so many gloriously happy moments that both us and our guests can cherish and remember. Wedding …

Wedding photographer Varenna Villa Cipressi – Heather and Andrew – May 29th, 2013

Wedding photographer Varenna Villa Cipressi Matteo and his assistant took amazing photos – it was the prefect mix of journalistic/runway wow! He was really able to capture all the emotional moments of the day, the feelings and I was so surprised how he was able to catch my family and friends in moments and in poses that were standard them…. I found my self saying – that is so Dad or John or my Husband…. they caught everyone being themselves. It was perfect. I only wish they were based in the U.S. to do every event for me – but I understand why they live in Italy (the beauty is unsurpassed). Some locations where I LOVE to work: Varenna, Lake …

Wedding in Villa Cipressi – Varenna – Lake Como – Heather and Andrew – May 29, 2013

Heather and Andrew were married in Varenna, a place where I am always happy to come back. Varenna is a small village on Como Lake, well protected by the mayor and citizens who I often see to drink a coffee in the centre. For me it is a pleasure to work in that place that is so quiet and nice, I always arrive earlier and I have breakfast sitting in the square or in front of the lake … it’s really an anti stress! Let’s talk about the bride and the groom! Heather and Andrew came from Washington, USA, they wanted to celebrate their wedding in Italy with about fifty relatives and friends. I followed both Heather and  Andrew’s getting ready. …

Wedding in Villa Necchi Campiglio – Milan – Francesca and Flavio May 25, 2013

The rain never stopped… the whole day, but Flavio Francesca and where not scared! As often happens I followed the preparation of the bride, in Francesca’ s house were her mother, her aunt and her best  friend. I remember the story how they first met. In elementary school, the teacher asked them to draw the “portrait” of his/her preferred friend and they found themself in that way … A long-standing friendship that endures to today, they have grown together to create a strong bond. Immediately after the ceremony in the beautiful Church St. Andrea in Milan we moved to Villa Necchi Campiglio where I am always happy to come back. The party was fun and lively, they danced all night …

Wedding in Villa Fiordaliso – Gardone Riviera – Garda Lake

Harold and Judy, April 15th, 2013 Harold and Judy will remain in my thoughts for a long time, they are a couple that really impressed me. But let’s start from the beginning ! We are on the beautiful Garda Lake in Gardone Riviera, at the stunning Villa Fiordaliso, Harold and Judy are from Hamburg with a dozen very close friends and decided to celebrate their wedding in Italy. I cannot say too much, but they all work on an artistic enviroment, in fact when Judy arrived to the gazebo for the celebration, all friends started singing. I was thinking to be at a Broodway musical 🙂 But the most important moment was when Judy (she is from Croatia) sang a …

Family Portrait in Milan Andrea, Roberta and Mariasole

It ‘s time for reorganization and revision of my portfolio, looking at my catalog  I found myself to dwell on the family portrait of Andrea, Roberta and Mariasole. I decided to share some shots of this beautiful family. There is one thing to say, they’re friends, real friends and photographing people close is always difficult and easy at the same time. The portrait photography is an interpretation of the subject, the photo must represent them through my eyes, so if the relationship is established this job is complex, I am influenced … I decided to approach it in a very instinctive way, without thinking too much. We took a walk, some jokes with Mariasole,  kisses and hugs. … the rest …

Wedding photographer in Italy – Teena and Pietro – September 8th, 2012

Wedding photographer in Italy “Dear Matteo, we are truly speechless! The photos arrived this week and they could not have been more perfect. You’re a true professional, from the very first email you made us feel at ease and how you were able to anticipate our moves, keep up with all the different locations and give us such amazing photos is beyond us! I’m so glad we stumbled across your website. For me choosing the photographer was more important than the dress and having to choose a photographer in Italy when we live in the Netherlands was a bit nerve racking. I’m a bit embarrassed to admit just how much time we have spent looking at your photos the past …

Wedding in Lake Como – Michelle and Kevin – June 22nd, 2012

Wedding in Lake Como We met Matteo in Milan about 9 months before our wedding and we knew straight away that we wanted him to capture our special day on camera. His passion for photography is obvious in both his work and character. We were impressed with the examples of Matteo’s previous work which he was able to show us and we could not wait to see how our own wedding photos would turn out. We were not disappointed!! Matteo is skilled in being able to capture precious moments which other photographers do not manage. He was friendly, attentive and made our “camera shy” guests feel comfortable. We were absolutely thrilled with our wedding pictures and would most definitely recommend …

Russian Wedding in Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni Since we were in Moscow and our wedding was supposed to be in Italy, we started to search wedding photographer in Como lake surroundings using the Google website.

The photos he makes are not in a way of simple posing and chilly smiles, Matteo is like a real photojournalist tries to catch the details and show the real life in a motion. He …
