Can you share how you've made your wedding photography business a success? Any mistakes you made along the way?We really donâ€™t know! We started as it was a passion and continued for the same reason. The success is the point between your passion and the bride and groomâ€™s desires.
What do you think a bride or groom should be looking for and not looking for in terms of wedding photography packages?We think the most important elements on which a bride couple should turn their attention to is the quality and the style of the pictures (do you really LOVE them?); the coverage of the day (how many hours will the photographer stay at the wedding day?) and the number of pictures heâ€™s going to delivery. 100? 500?. But the quality and the style are the hearth of the photography.
How do you advertise yourself and what for you has really worked?We are featured on different wedding websites, associations and vendor sites. We think that the combination of all these elements can give us good results.
Why do you think people hire you?We think or we hope they hire us because they see something in our pictures that makes go â€œwow!â€!
How many weddings do you average per year?About 30.
Whose wedding would you love to shoot?No one in particular. The best wedding is the one in which bride and groom are really in love and the guests are in harmony with them.
If you were asked to shoot a destination wedding, where would you hope it would be?We really love to travel and discover new places, but we left our heart in New York City!
What equipment do you have for a typical wedding day?We have two Canon 5D Mark II and one Canon 5D as backupâ€. We use 24mm F1.4 L, 35mm F1.4, 50mm F1.4, 85mm F1.8, 17-40 F4 L, 70-200mm F4L.
What is the most challenging thing about a wedding.
Do you have an approach to a wedding?We think that everything beautiful is in front of us: we just have to catch it our own different way, to communicate real emotions.

Do you have any goals for the future photography related or otherwise?Our goal is to stabilize and improve our work.
What do you think is key to being a successful wedding photographer?As in every activity, I think itâ€™s a mix of different factors: passion and competence that make you stand out from others, first of all, tenacity and a pinch of lucky!
