Wedding Photographer Tuscany Fabio Mirulla Wedding Photographer shoots a wedding at Locanda San Martino a Bocena,Tuscany, Italy
Real weddings from real wedding photographers & real couples around the world.
Tell us a little about yourself??Hello, I am Fabio Mirulla. I was born in 1986 in a small village near Florence, Siena and Arezzo. Since I was young I began to appreciate the beauty of the landscapes that surrounded me, so loved all over the world, so when in 2005 I started working as a wedding photographer, I tried to realize services in which the beauty of the places would exalt and make unique, thanks to the play of lights and your special day.
My photography is like looking through a keyhole, it will never be invasive or blatant, will capture moments and emotions, always on tiptoes, with the privileged point of view of those who share your happiness, but with years of experience in photographic services on his shoulders.
So you will see the tense expression of the groom waiting for the bride to come, the tears of happiness of a friend who reads his speech practiced for days, the first dance barefoot on the grass, a stolen photo of a kiss on the forehead at the sunset… moments that will remain indelibly fixed in the photographs and in your memories.
How do you think or would like people to describe you?Easy going, stubborn, but I really get on well with people.
Tell us a little bit about the wedding day?Anne and Jop are a really nice Dutch couple that decided to have a secret intimate wedding in Tuscany, just with their parents. I've never met them before, but we really got on well and they made me feel like I was a guest and part of their very important day. They had the ceremony and a toast in the city center and then we moved to the typical Tuscan countryside to create the couples photo session.
How did you get into wedding photography?I started as an assistant of a wedding photographer after I ended high school. I used to study at university meanwhile during spring and summer I continued to work as a wedding photographer
How long have you been a wedding photographer?Since 2005
Can you share how you've made your wedding photography business a success? Any mistakes you made along the way?I think to be a successful photographer, you always have to move forward and improve. On the ground of my work there is experimentation and I'm looking for new ideas and motivations all the time.
What do you think a bride or groom should be looking for and not looking for in terms of wedding photography packages?It depends on what they are looking for and what they like, in general they should look for someone who can tell the whole story of the day, interpreting it according to the bride and the groom.
How do you advertise yourself and what for you has really worked?Through my web site and blog. I also use social networks, above all Facebook. The blog is very important to me and it works really well.
Why do you think people hire you?Because I always try to shoot photos in which you can see the emotions of the moment instead of only beautiful moments but emotionless photos.
How many weddings do you average per year?From 40 to 50
Whose wedding would you love to shoot?-
If you were asked to shoot a destination wedding, where would you hope it would be?In Europe I would choose London, while outside of Europe I'd like to shoot a wedding in Grand Canyon National Park
