To whom it may concern, Matteo Cuzzola was the photographer for my wedding at Villa Cipressi in Varenna, Lake Como, Italy on the 18th September 2009. The wedding photographer was booked for a 4 hour slot. Both my wife & I were very highly impressed by the level of service given to us by Matteo and his assistant. They turned up ahead of time and spend a good chunk of time with the bride capturing the preparation. During this task he showed us that he was both very patient and professional. The wedding itself was relatively small with 45 guests so it was crucial that the wedding photographer was not overly intrusive. This, in my opinion was one of the facets I was most impressed with Matteo about. He managed to get the necessary shots from the correct locations without having to block other guest’s views or by manipulating other guests out of the way. This was the only time I can remember that wedding guests have mentioned to me how good the photographer was and how well he blended in. Matteo and his assistant were both personable, polite and socialized well whilst doing his job. Just what you want. When it came to the extended photographs of the bride & groom he was able to lead us to great spots for backdrops but at the same time was not demanding or insisting on any particular shot. We both felt guided but at the same time had freedom to choose what photos we did and didn’t want. I have been at many wedding parties where a boisterous photographer was demanding with a lot of the guests and barking orders for people placement but we saw none of this with Matteo. After the event we were quickly informed that a sample of the photos were available on line at his website and he followed up with a full DVD of the entire range of photos. All were available in high def or low definition along with a slideshow. The photos themselves were fantastic and captured both the traditional wedding shots as well as some great unexpected natural photos as well. We are very proud to show these photos to our friends and family. In summary we were both extremely happy with the service we received from Matteo, both for his time at the event and also the quality of the photographs provided. I can thoroughly recommend his services to anyone out there who is planning a wedding and I’m sure he’s just as capable at other events to.
10/10 A+ Thanks & Regards Vincent
