Destination wedding photographer in Italy
One year after the engagement photo session of Adele and Alex which I had the pleasure to shot in Amalfi, I got a phone call from Alex. He wanted me to be their destination wedding photographer.
It was going to be in one of the most ravishing castles in Italy. I was happy to accept the job, despite I had another wedding 700 miles away just the day before.
That time I drove all night, and was able to sleep just a couple of hours, but I was sure it would be worth it. The wedding of Adele and Alex, indeed, was one of the most lovely I have worked for, in which fun, romance and exciting moments followed one another throughout the day.
Since I had gotten to know them the year before, I knew that their wedding would have been special, and a nice opportunity for me as a destination wedding photographer. They are those type of sparkling couples whom I love to work with.
A Gorgeous Destination: Tabiano Castle
Alex and Adele had planned their big day with perfection in mind, and I must say that they really did a great job. They chose indeed the very best venues for the big day. Firstly, The cathedral of Fidenza, which is one of the most beautiful churches I’ve ever seen. Not to talk about the venue for the party, an impressive medieval castle perched on the top of a hill in the countryside not far from the city.
An Easy Photo Shoot
As a former Miss New York, Adele felt comfortable in front of the camera, thus making my job much easier. Right after the ring exchange they got to the castle in a nice vintage car which suited the place quite well. Also, they arrived just in time for the golden hour, the best time for a photo shoot. And so we set to work for the photos right away. The place was so inspiring. The ancient walls of the castle were lit by the warm light of sunset. We felt like being in a fairytale castle. Furthermore, there were lush green all around. In short, there was quite a dream-like atmosphere.
Final Destination: A Big Wedding Party
The long awaited party finally started. There was an open-air dinner followed by the dance party in the courtyard of the castle. It was not easy to shoot the people dancing outdoor in the dark and fast-moving, but in the end the pictures came out very nice and I was happy with the result. Finally, the day ended with gorgeous fireworks right after the cake cutting.
Guido is incredibly talented and was an absolute pleasure to work with! He was able to capture our engagement in Amalfi, Italy, which was a complete surprise for me! I couldn't have even imagined how beautiful the photos would come out that he took. Everyone was blown away by them! They look like they are out of a fairytale with how he captured our emotions along with the stunning scenery in the background. I am so happy to have these memories that we will cherish for the rest of our lives. I truly can't thank Guido enough! I highly recommend him to anyone for their engagement and wedding photos!
