Wedding in Venice – The Westin Europa & Regina – Michelle and Matthew August 19th 2016
Over the years, in this work, I met hundreds of people.
Some go by and some others don’t.
In 2009, in Varenna, in a small wedding in Villa Cipressi, I met Giuseppe (Blessing from Italy) while celebrating the ceremony with great sensitivity and respect.
I was struck.
After the ceremony we talked a few minutes and nothing more.
After that meeting we talked a couple of times on the phone and we again worked together in Venice where I met Diane, his wife and colleague.
We understood we have the same vision, the same respect for our customers, the same passion for those moments so quick but important.
After a few years we worked together again, at the wedding of Michelle and Matthew, again in Venice, August 19th, 2015.
I am thrilled when work with friends in my weddings around Italy.
Diane and Giuseppe were great as usual, with their professionalism and sensitivity. Measuring out the words and gestures, Diane and Giuseppe created the magic.
There is a moment when everyone stops, the guests hold their breath and Michelle and Matthew were exchanging their promises.
And me, torn between involvement and my work as a wedding photographer.
Lucky me to be there and to have friends like that.
