Bored with the traditional style of italian weddings, I define my photographic style as "Creative & Editorial Photojournalism" where spontaneous moments join modern and fashion portraits. That's what all my clients want!

I'm based in Sulmona, Italy, a small town famous worldwide for its confetti.

I love the natural light. A large amount of my pictures are taken in natural light by my DSLR camera (Canon Eos 5D Mark III, Canon Eos 5D Mark II). Only in particular situations i use a video light or a wireless flash (formal portraits) to have a better control of the light.

This picture is an example of portrait of bride & groom where I used a wireless flash light, in the car centrally behind the couple. During the location inspection the days before the wedding I discovered this fantastic glimpse. I made this shot immediately after the ceremony, few minutes after the “golden hour”.

The image was taken in the beautiful medieval village of Celano (Abruzzo,Italy)

I used a Canon Eos 5D Mark II on a tripod with Canon EF 24-70mm F2.8 L lens at 1/15 | F4 | ISO 1600

Flash Canon 580EX II at 1/16 of power

I retouched it in Adobe Lightroom 5 and Adobe Photoshop CS5 (Color Correction, Contrast, Sharpening).

The image has been much appreciated from the couple and it's part of their wedding album.
