Ciao! I’m Luca
About twenty years ago I started telling wedding stories in Italy, through pictures. This resulted in hundreds of successfully completed wedding services after sharing a variety of emotions with the couples who chose me as their photographer. And such emotions surface every time I get to know a new couple.
Choosing the photographer in Italy that is right for you is not hard at all, you just need to bear this in mind: his background, his professional experience, his personal style, his taste, his technique, his sensitivity and original touch have to emerge from his images.
I therefore prefer to avoid boring you by listing all the possible reasons why I am supposed to be the italian photographer of your choice. I firmly believe that my photos themselves can express much more than any number of words I may use.
In this page you can find two different galleries of images: the first one is dedicated to my wedding portraiture portfolio and the second one to my documentary, photojournalistic, unobtrusive style.
I like combining the classical wedding photography style (expertly composed well-lit portraits, even if candid-oriented) with an artistic approach to wedding reportage.
I believe that my innate disposition, which is commonly named “style”, consists in a harmonious cross between picture story and artistic photography.
This is to say that my approach is essentially journalistic – immediate, spontaneous, fresh and unobtrusive: I catch moments and situations as they naturally occur, without interfering and without letting either wedding couple or guests perceive my presence.
At the same time, though, I try to blend with my surroundings, be part of them, and get inspired by them in order to express my creativity.
In short, I respect the “naked substance” but I dress it in an original, fresh, unexpected, precious, captivating, and exciting form.
I love my profession, and that is why I am fully trusted by my customers, who allow me total freedom of expression.
This means that I do not have to follow banal approved traditional esthetic standards, but I am at liberty to constantly evolve according to the individual features of each single job. Every couple is different and every wedding is to be narrated in accordance with, and with an emphasis on its peculiarity.
I like my expressive style to be in constant evolution, thanks to research, study, experimentation and…… challenge.
Starting from 2011, when I still was not sure of my standing, I happened to be confronted with the best international photographers, and was admitted as a member of some of the most prestigious world wedding- photography associations. This made me very proud of myself and allowed me, an unknown provincial italian wedding photographer, to take part in their annual competitions.
Seeing my first award-winning photos, among the thousands entered by the best European, North and South-American, and Asian photographers helped me understand that my photos were not just to my own, and to my customers’ liking, but were truly valuable, as they were appreciated by eminent professionals in the field all over the world.
And the prizes kept coming with steady continuity, allowing me to achieve the highest recognition from different associations, probably thanks to the evolution of my stylistic and expressive canons, in keeping with the steady evolution of the wedding-photography aesthetics.
In 2018 I have been appointed PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE YEAR 2017 by AG/WPJA, thanks to the ranking awarded to the photos submitted in the two half-yearly contests!
Being confronted with the world best-known professionals serves both as a spur to constant improvement and as a confirmation of my being on the right track when I am not content with just my personal (partial) judgement or with that of my clients, which is all-important to me, but not always so expert.
I am aware that the way I am talking about wedding photography, as if I was dealing with neurosurgery, may make you smile. To most people photography is just a marginal aspect of life, but to me it is my job, which luckily coincides with my passion.
It is this passion that drives me to keep improving my professional skills.
Of course I am not saving human lives, (but neither am I exposing them to risk), and I feel very proud of being able to give my couples a few precious emotions to remember.
