A magic day in Peschici – Wedding Photographer in Puglia
Puglia is increasingly becoming a very popular destination for weddings. The incomparable beauty of this unique land can really turn every wedding into a fairy tale.
Although one of the hottest day I recall from the last summer, despite being mid September, the wedding of Sarah and Michele has been quite enjoyable and, above all, one of the most felt I’ve had the pleasure to witness. The pandemic wasn’t enough to stop or defer the long awaited dream of this beautiful young couple.
So the day before I drove to the spectacular Gargano National Park to reach Peschici, a vibrant and picturesque small town rich in life and colours. Definitely a dream place for an intimate romantic wedding. The town sits quietly over a karst spur facing the sea, offering amazing views of the coastline all around.
Street photography – wedding reportage in Puglia
After the ceremony, held in the main church of the town, we had a very pleasant walk, strolling up and down through the picturesque alleys of the town. Unsurprisingly, I soon realised that just every corner in the town offered great chances for photography. The truly vibrant colours, which are somewhat reminiscent of greek villages, the quaint shops, and – on top of that – the warm late afternoon light were a perfect mix for a great photoshoot. For a moment I feared my memory cards weren’t enough to store all the photos I was taking. There was really too much to photograph! While the bride and groom enjoyed their relaxing walk, I kept running back and forth around them to benefit from every possible perspective. Every little move on my part turned out to be another nice shot. Furthermore, they were so natural that I didn’t have to say a word.
A Romantic Ending
Finally, after one hour, we moved to another place they had chosen prior the wedding to shoot at sunset. They took me to this gorgeous wild place along the coast. The steep escarpments and jagged and windswept coastline typical of the area was an extremely romantic backdrop, especially at sunset. The light was absolutely phenomenal and the atmosphere just incredible. I was quite happy with the result.
