Wedding Photographer Piedmont Luca Domenico Fumero shoots a wedding at Monchiero, Italy
Tell us a little about yourself??I'm a storyteller photographer based in Italy. I'm 36 years old and I live with my girlfriend Claudia, my little cat named Agata and my 16 years old dog Billie. I'm volunteer firefighter and I love taking long ride with my old motorbike so it is very very easy to find me around on a motorbike!
How do you think or would like people to describe you?A simple, easy bearded craftsman
Tell us a little bit about the wedding day?It was the marriage of a foreign couple who love Italy and in particular the 'Langhe' area in which I live and often work.
How did you get into wedding photography?Since I was a college student I always liked to tell simple stories. A wedding day is full of particular characters and their stories...so why not try to capture them?
How long have you been a wedding photographer?This is my fourth year.
Can you share how you've made your wedding photography business a success? Any mistakes you made along the way?I do not know if it is the nature of my 'success' but for sure I think my main goal should be to understand my clients, their ideas, their hopes.
I did, I do and I will make many many mistakes, it is the nature of the craftsman...
Overturning an old firefighters saying: a day without mistakes is a day not lived.
What do you think a bride or groom should be looking for and not looking for in terms of wedding photography packages?I do not think there can be a perfect package overall, but the perfect one for the single couple.
I try to build it every time.
How do you advertise yourself and what for you has really worked?I try to work always at my best, always giving the maximum.
Why do you think people hire you?I hope for the way in which I live in my work and my life: fancy, daintiness and synthesis.
How many weddings do you average per year?It depends on the year, more or less 20
Whose wedding would you love to shoot?A wedding with only 5 people: bride, groom, priest and 2 witnesses
If you were asked to shoot a destination wedding, where would you hope it would be?In a place that I've never seen and did not see again
What equipment do you have for a typical wedding day?Two camera bodies (actually Nikon) and 2/3 lenses.
What is the most challenging thing about a wedding.
Do you have an approach to a wedding?Yes: let it all happen naturally.
Who or what inspires you?Cinema, music, painting...
Best & Worst marketing idea so far?Not yet
If you weren't a photographer, what would you be?A sad person.
Share your favourite image of the day and why?I choose this picture because it contains the simple beauty of the feeling that really exists between this pair.
Do you have any goals for the future photography related or otherwise?Yes: becoming a good photographer and a good storyteller.
What do you think is key to being a successful wedding photographer?Simplicity and humility
Are there any other wedding photographers whose work inspires you, can be a well know photographer or somebody you've stumbled across?Aaaah...Too many to list them all
Proudest moment so far. Photography related or otherwise?Every time I am selected by a client.
I want to make a special thanks to Barbara Gourdain: a good friend and fantastic wedding planner.
