Tips to choose your wedding photographer in Italy

When you start planning your wedding it is normal to gather information from relatives and friends who are already married, but the answers you will get may not meet your expectations, especially for the one who has to capture the best day of your life: the photographer.

The other way to search for the ideal photographer is to surf the net; this most of the time happens by sending, to the selected photographers, online quote requests based on criteria that cannot always be considered correct. In fact, it is quite common that the choice falls on the one who presents the lowest budget, regardless of the quality of the service that will be performed. Once the assignment is entrusted you will certainly have the impression of having saved but this without considering that a low price is often synonymous with poor quality.

For this reason, don’t reduce your choice to a low-cost photographer, but look for the one who, through his/her pictures, can excite you.

Obviously, even basing the choice of the photographer on the emotion that a single photo gives you is still not enough to find the ideal photographer for your wedding. You must know that the photographer during this unforgettable day will assist you not only during the ceremony but starting from the preparation of the couple, until the conclusion of the celebrations.

So don’t dwell on a single photo but browse entire albums and get an idea of ​​the overall result through the photo gallery.

Being a photographer does not only mean having the technical skills that can allow you to use a camera correctly: being a photographer also means having a natural talent, passion, competence, and experience.

That said, for your wedding photoshoot, choose a professional with creativity and emotions.

It is not the camera that makes the photograph, but the photographer.

Nowadays there is a belief that being a photographer simply means having a quality camera, but that’s not quite the case.

A true photographer, on the other hand, can be defined as a professional when, in addition to possessing a wide range of quality tools, has within himself/herself that sensitivity and apprehension that allow him/her to capture the emotions not only of the spouses but also of all the guests. as well as being able to take exciting photos that can tell their story.


A wedding photoshoot with discretion and professionalism


A good wedding photoshoot is not evaluated simply by the numerous shots taken but also based on the professionalism of the photographer who, through a matured experience in the field, is able to immortalize the best moments of your wedding, with discretion. 



This means that the photographic shots must not only be those where the subjects are made to pose, but also those “stolen” moments where they can capture the emotions of both the spouses and the guests. Do not forget that marriage means emotion and that this must also be transmitted in the shots that are taken of your spouses and your guests.

The photographic style is important (reportage and pose).

There is often the mistaken belief that one photographer is as good as another, but this is not the case.

Years of experience and studies, especially during reportage in distant countries, allow us to acquire that emotionality that the photographer, through his perceptions, is able to transmit in the shots.

What to include in the quote for a wedding photo shoot.
