As I cruise in the archives this morning, listening to classical music, I am seeing the new vision I am focusing in when talking about wedding photography and the way I like to do it.
As this profession is transforming into something different, it becomes more and more important that I choose to do it in a more deep and personal way.
Moods, the things I feel, fragments and thoughts become the engine of the storytelling way of being a wedding photographer.
Film photography, with wonderful prints that will become the crown of the work, the summary of the vision.
There may be or not a market for this anymore, so why not focusing on the way I love to do it?
This wedding took place at Camin hotel Colmegna if you are looking for a wedding photographer and you like my Philosophy on wedding photography you can get in touch here:
Here are some frames from another analog wedding taken in the wonderful areas of Stresa, on the Lake Maggiore, in Italy.
I got a telephone call from these two friendly guys while I was on vacation in the Dolomites but I knew instantly that the vibrations were so good. We were dreaming the same king of photography so we have been soon on the go.
It’s been a small and intimate wedding that led to a party in the following weeks…but this is another story we’ll post about it later.
Picture have been done in Stresa and Regina Palace Hotel and in the wonderful surrounding Fisherman Island. The Island is one of my favorite places ever, and since weather was not perfect, we were almost alone…even more poetry!
Pictures are in Nikon FMs and Kodak TRIX.

I am going through old archive pictures these days, and here is what I found…this is Francesca’s wedding, we’ve been close friends in my skateboard days and we went through a lot of things in those years.
It happened natural that I have been the photographer for their wedding. It is maybe for that that I started doing it, later…maybe.
It was a simple wedding, with a simple photography. There’s a simple young-me in a mirror with my old Film Leica. After so many days as a wedding photographer I am going back to that way of taking photographs.
In the last years Perception of photography has changed, and being a wedding photographer, or a photographer in general is just changed.
Here’s a small selection from an analog wedding still in the Amalfi Cost but this time in the wonderful area of Sorrento.
Giancarlo asked me for my black and white film pictures and that’s what he got.
Wedding gave us back an incredible view on the area, since Villa Giusso in in Vico Equense, a view that you can’t forget, and lovely people that I keep meeting everytime I’m back!

Here is a wedding in the way I like to do it recently.
These are a small selection of photographs taken with analog cameras from a wedding at Camin Hotel Colmegna one of the most beautiful places where I have worked as a wedding photographer along the years.
I loved working with Caroline and Roger since they wanted exactly what I plan to do. Rather than collecting thousands of digital files, they wanted a set of Iconic prints to remember.
This is the language I love and the way I love to take photographs.
I had my two trusty Nikon Fms loaded with black and white film, and realized the prints in a darkroom week.
The prints look beautiful, I can’t wait to send them…I love the way they tell the story.
Here comes the time to show some of the most funny weddings I had the privilege of working on as a photographer.
Matteo is a stunning photographer, too. We had the privilege of working together in street photography projects in the past, I consider him a friend even if we can’t see each other so often…
I did this wedding in my own way, analog film cameras. My two trusty Nikon FM2 were loaded with black and white film and this way we went all day long. Shooting without a rush, being present, never looking at the camera. The contact sheets ended up revealing everything, there was more than needed, time to watch at the picture was later, not that day.
The joy of printing my friend pictures in my darkroom were my reward, my pleasure. It came beautiful, simple as it used to be, with the mood I love.
Digital photography is getting day by day more far from me, not for a religious way of thinking, but simply because I like it always less.
Mentre guardo i miei archivi mi perdo e ritrovo le fotografie di questo matrimonio tra Tellaro e Lerici in cui ho lavorato come fotografo.
Mi ricordo di Mattia e Carolina, e di come tutto é stato fantastico. Uno di quei matrimoni dove si dimenticano di te e puoi fare ciò che vuoi per realizzare uno dei più bei lavori su carta che mi sia capitato di realizzare come fotografo di matrimonio.
Resta impresso anche nella mia memoria di come a un certo punto mi ero accorto che non avevo più la leva di carica della Leica M6, persa durante i balli chissà dove…ennesimo tradimento di macchine che nell’uso si sono dimostrate molto meno affidabili della leggenda…ma ora che delle Leica mi sono liberato mi godo solo le fotografie scattate con macchine più semplici e che non tradiscono mai.
Il matrimonio si é svolto all’ Eco del mare …posto stupendo e magico.
Giusto alcune istantanee da quel giorno.
