First shooting after the full switch to Sony

After being a Nikon guys for years in august I fully switched to Sony and I didn’t want to shoot a wedding without trying properly all my new gear. What’s better than a shooting in one of my most loved locations with a beautiful girl named Costanza ? I shot with a couple of Sony A7 III, sigma 35 art and zeiss batis 85mm and I could not be happier about the result, even if this was…

Destination wedding in Val d’Orcia

We are blessed to live in Tuscany, we have such a wide range of places, views, hills, mountains and a nice sea, but only a few can match the beauty of Val d’Orcia country. That’s why Dannika and Tommaso choose Terre di Nano as location for their lovely wedding ! I talked to the couple some time before the wedding day by skype and I was happy to find that we were on the same page…

Sadie & Andreas. Wedding at Casale De’ Pasquinelli

Even after a lot of weddings it still happens to work in new location and different areas of Tuscany. For the special day of Sadie and Andreas (a lovely couple from Seattle, US) I discovered Casale De Pasquinelli, a nice location on the hills over Capannori, an area I never worked in. It was everything on location, from getting ready up to the party so it was very relaxed and all the people could enjoy…

Trying my new gear (sony A7III, Zeiss Batis 85mm, Samyang AF 35 2.8, DJI Spark Drone).

Helicopter flight over Florence

Getting married in a wine cellar – an intimate wedding in Tuscany

in the latest years I worked on many many weddings but I never had the chance to take pictures of a ceremony in a wine cellar.

Engagement in Certaldo A.K.A. working under harsh light

“oh no, light is so hars! would it still be ok for our photoshoot?” Is this something you are worried about ? If so my answer is no, not at all, not for me at least.   Having a soft and diffuesed light is something that a portrait photographer is whishing most of the times and this is something that I also teach to my classes and workshop but ….. who says it will be…

Engagement in an ancient garden

How many cities in the world may offer you an ancient garden for your engagement shooting? Only a few I guess and Florence is amongst them.

It used to be the king’s garden when Florence was the capital of Italy about 150 years ago and before that it was one…

What to do if it rains on your wedding day?

Wedding day under the rain may be a problem. Or not.   Well, at least for your wedding pictures you won’t have to worry if I will be your wedding photographer, not because I am a wizard and will stop rain but just because I like to improvise and find new ways to shoot. You do not need a fancy castle or a magical villa to have some nice wedding pictures, I always say that…
