Real weddings from real wedding photographers & real couples around the world.
Tell us a little about yourself??Hello, my name is Martino Buzzi Iâ€™m a wedding photographer and I love my job! I was born in Italy where I studied cinema and discovered my passion for photography. At the age of 24 I moved to Spain where I now live with my wife and my two lovely daughters. I started shooting on film 10 years ago, developing my B/W photos in a darkroom. I gathered experience working in different fields from sports to fashion, events and portrait photography. One day I discovered wedding photography could give me the opportunity to create some creative and natural portraits. I believe wedding photography should be considered as a form of artistic expression.
How do you think or would like people to describe you?Iâ€™d like people to describe me as a dreamer, and an optimist.
Tell us a little bit about the wedding day?The wedding of Patricia and Pablo was a great experience. They are a really wonderful couple and their wedding was held in an ancient little church on top of a hill. (Ermita de la magdalena) They had 300 guests in the party and everybody had great fun. (Auditorio de CastellÃ³n)

How long have you been a wedding photographer?I've been a full-time wedding photographer for five years.
Can you share how you've made your wedding photography business a success? Any mistakes you made along the way?I decided offer a different product, specially focused on quality of the images. Trash The Dress sessions are my favorites because they give me the opportunity to create really stunning pictures. Never offer your work cheaper than it deserves.
What do you think a bride or groom should be looking for and not looking for in terms of wedding photography packages?I think bride and groom should focus on the photos and feel what they communicate. They are going to be with the photographer for many hours on the wedding and so they should focus on his personality too.
How do you advertise yourself and what for you has really worked?Internet is my main advertising channel. The Blog works well to keep people engaged showing new works on a regular basis.
Why do you think people hire you?I hope people hire me for the pictures I do.
