Wedding photographer Venice Italy My husband and I got married in Venice, Italy on October 10, 2013. When we decided on a destination wedding, I had no idea where or how to find the right photographer for our special day. Thankfully, after much searching and viewing endless photo galleries, we found Matteo. His communications were prompt, friendly and very professional. I felt at ease to put my trust in him, even though we had only communicated via email. On the day of the wedding, he was amazing. His photojournalistic style was exactly what we wanted to document our wedding. Blending and mixing with our family and guests and completely unobtrusive, he captured the day beautifully. More importantly, we looked like …

Young couple and a very intimate wedding here in Milan at the faboulus Hote Armani. Mokina and Jacek arrived from Polonia to celebrate their best day in Italy.

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

Here we are finally at Hannah and Mark’s wedding, listen what happen in a day that I was swept twice by rain, wind and storm. I met Hannah with his parents a couple of months before the wedding in a warm afternoon on Lake Como in May, we drank coffee together, we talked and we liked eachother. I found Hannah a shy and happy girl that, with the help of her dad and mom, was realizing her dream, getting married in Italy in the wonderful Villa of Balbianello. Her parents gave me immediately trust and confidence, I have to say that after that first meeting, I couldn’t wait for  the big day ! You may control everything, I always say …

Wedding Villa Gallici Deciani – Udine – Micol and Tommaso – August 31st, 2013

  Wedding Villa Gallici Deciani Matteo is a real seasoned professional. Kind and calm (thing that helps a lot if you are a stressed bride!), he met me and my husband explaining his work before the wedding. Moreover, I was really surprised of how fast he gave us the finished digital album after the wedding. In less then 3 weeks we had our fantastic pics. He made a marvelous work: his pictures catch all the feelings and best moments of our special day with an elegant and sophisticated finish. I would highly recommend Matteo to anyone who want to be sure of the results.

Wedding at Villa Muggia – Maggiore Lake – Stresa – Sara and Adriano July 13th, 2013

Sara and Adriano celebrated their big day in the beautiful Villa Muggia in Stresa on Maggiore Lake. Lovely place, perfect day, beautiful light, a huge park with multi-colored blooms , small paths, thickets, a big fountain in front of the villa … This villa has a small quirk in the park there are statues of african animals! Working here was great. This lovely couple that loves rock allowed me to use a song by Guns and Roses for the slideshow! (see YouTube video at the bottom of the article) As often happens, the table of “experts” was the most exiting … friends then organized a funny video projected during dinner …. A great party perfectly organized by Diana Da Ros …

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.

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 …
