Tell us a little about yourself??

My name is Francesco, I am an osteopath, but two years ago I bought my first camera, a Nikon D3000 and since then, I fall in love with photography, which has fully become a second job.

How do you think or would like people to describe you?

As a determined and ambitious person, I’m 26 years old but I know exactly what I want and how to get it.

Tell us a little bit about the wedding day?

During the wedding day I try to behave as if I was a guest, I don’t want to be too intrusive, and let the couple enjoy their day. I want to be present to catch emotional moment but always discreetly. Anyway, I always make friends with most of the guests and that’s how beautiful and spontaneous photos come from.

How did you get into wedding photography?

I had bought my first camera ever for 5 months, when a crazy and reckless couple of friends asked me to be their wedding photographer. I didn’t feel ready for such a commission but since I’m impulsive I decided to seize the occasion. That’s how I discovered wedding reportage. Since then I’ve been working more and more.

What do you think a bride or groom should be looking for and not looking for in terms of wedding photography packages?

The bride and the groom should enjoy their wedding day, and not have to worry about how they look in photos. Wedding photographers are not and cannot be fashion photographers. They also should look for a photographer they feel comfortable with.

Whose wedding would you love to shoot?

My friends ones, because they would probably behave more spontaneously in front of the camera.

If you were asked to shoot a destination wedding, where would you hope it would be?

In a big city such as London or New York, I love the opposition between the romanticism of the moment and the vibrating atmosphere of street style and skyscrapers.

What equipment do you have for a typical wedding day?

My kit is: 2 Nikon Df (silver), Sigma 14 f 2,8 – Nikon 24 f 1,4 – Nikon 58 f1,4 and one flash that I never use.

What is the most challenging thing about a wedding.

Creating a shooting including emotional moments but also some posed photos. A nice mix of emotions, smiles, tears and fondness of the couple.
