• DOVE RISIEDI?
My studio is located in Giulianova, an enchanting Abruzzo city on the Adriatic Sea.
• DO YOU WORK ONLY IN ITALY?
I am a wedding photographer based in Abruzzo but I have made photographic services in different Italian regions, abroad in Paris, London, Warsaw, Barcelona and overseas in Mexico.
• WHAT IS YOUR PHOTOGRAPHIC STYLE?
My favorite style is a mix between reportage (90%) and a small part of the service (10%) where I provide some indications to the spouses in order to obtain certain images.
• WHAT TYPE OF CAMERAS DO YOU USE?
Given that I believe that it is not the camera that makes the photographer, I have a professional Canon kit to which I support a mirrorless FujiFilm and some analog cameras, both 35mm and medium format.
• IS THE SERVICE REALIZED BY YOU OR OTHERS IF YOU TAKE MORE WEDDINGS A DAY?
I photograph only one wedding a day, therefore my presence is always assured.
• DO YOU WORK ALONE OR WITH AN ADDITIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER?
Normally I am alone with the help of an assistant who helps me in the logistics. In case you desire a second shooter, he is always a professional photographer who works alongside me.
• CAN WE MEET BEFORE BOOKING?
I'd be really happy! It is a fundamental part of the photographer's choice process.
• GIULIANOVA IS TOO FAR, HOW CAN WE DO?
We can use video conferencing software such as Skype, Whatsapp or FaceTime to organize a meeting and talk about the wedding together.
• DO YOU ALSO SHOOT PREWEDDING/ENGAGEMENT SERVICE?
Yes and I recommend it to everyone, it is a fundamental moment to get to know each other and take photos in a carefree way, in a place significant for the history of the couple or that cannot be reached for logistical reasons on the wedding day. I have created engagement services both in Italy and abroad, as you can see in the appropriate section of the site.
• DO YOU ALSO TAKE CARE OF THE VIDEO?
I take care of the photographic part, in case you also want the video I have professionals filmmakers of the highest level with whom I often work and with whom I share the same vision of marriage.
• HOW MANY PHOTOS WILL YOU TAKE?
I don't have a predetermined number of photos to take, it will all depend on the progress of the event. Usually around 500-800 photographs.
• HOW LONG WILL YOU STAY AT THE WEDDING?
It depends on the type of service chosen. For the full day type of services 12 hours are largely enough to do a complete job.
• DO YOU ALSO TAKE GROUP PHOTOS?
Sure! The usual photos with the families at home and in the church are essential.
• WE WANT TO BE SURE THAT ALL THE GUESTS ARE PHOTOGRAPHED. HOW CAN IT BE DONE?
For the type of photo shoot I carry out, the people who will be closest to you on the wedding day will also be those most present in the photographs. If you absolutely want the photo of your shy and reserved uncle, you must explicitly indicate it to me. The ideal solution is a nice group photo, I do not recommend photos at the tables instead.
• DO WE HAVE TO INCLUDE YOU IN THE GUESTS?
Being considered as part of the party and not as a simple service provider is always a pleasure and positively predisposes me, in any case for the success of the service I always advise not to be confined to a place where it is not possible for me to follow the progress of the 'event. Equally essential is the presence of cold sparkling water at the table! :-)
• HOW LONG BEFORE I HAVE TO BOOK THE SERVICE?
For the most popular periods (July, August and September) at least 1 year before. For the other periods also 4-6 months before.
• HOW TO BOOK A SERVICE?
There is a contract to be signed that protects the couple and the photographer (following the ANFM guidelines, of which I am part) and a confirmation deposit is paid. At that point the date is confirmed.
• WE WOULD LIKE TO TAKE TIME TO THINK ABOUT IT. IS IT POSSIBLE TO HOLD A DATE?
Sorry, it is not possible.
• HOW MUCH DOES THE PHOTOGRAPHIC SERVICE COST?
Each wedding is unique, therefore the photo shoot is something extremely personalized. For more information you can write to me via the contact form or directly to [email protected]
• THERE ARE PHOTOGRAPHERS THAT ARE VERY CHEAP. WHY?
The cost of a photo shoot is not an expense but an investment for the future and is determined by several factors including experience and creativity.
I like to quote Benjamin Franklin: "The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten."
• IS THE WEDDING ALBUM INCLUDED IN THE PRICE?
For the sake of clarity, I don't do all-inclusive packages. This is because you must always know the value of what you are buying.
• WHAT TYPE OF WEDDING ALBUM DO YOU OFFER?
I offer the very high quality of 100% Made in Italy Graphistudio albums in various versions, from the photo book made with HD technology to the classic album.
• WHO WILL SELECT THE IMAGES TO BE USED FOR THE ALBUM?
A first selection is made by me based on my experience, subsequently there will be a way to collaborate in the final choice.
• HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO DELIVER PHOTOGRAPHS?
Generally I deliver the photos within 4-6 months from the wedding date.
• I DON'T LIKE MY NOSE, CAN YOU RETOUCH IT WITH PHOTOSHOP?
All photographs that exceed the selection phase are subjected to a post-basic production process (contrast, brightness, color, cut). What I don't do are the aesthetic touches (dress, nose, mouth, hair, etc ...) with the exception of course of the small problems that can arise on the wedding day such as a pimple.
• DO YOU ALSO PROVIDE ORIGINAL RAW FILES?
The files are delivered in JPEG format at the highest possible resolution. The RAW files, not being a finished product, are not supplied except with a specific agreement on the contract and with the relative surcharge.
