Ryan & Mike celebrated their 13 years of sweet love with a very personal & emotional wedding ceremony in the private gardens of Villa Eva, Ravello. Having travelled Italy extensively together, the location for their destination wedding was an obvious choice. Villa Eva provided the spectacular backdrop, and 75 family and friends from Canada, USA & Europe provided the warmth to embrace this sweet couple on their big day. With happiness & affection overflowing, their wedding photos are a reflection of just how amazing these two people and their love is. Ryan & Mike’s destination wedding of their dreams was put together with the personal planning of The Amalfi Experience.

Cathy & Frank married in Dallas, Texas in 2013 & whilst they loved their wedding photos, they wanted more photos that were more reflective of their style. For many, the hustle and bustle of a whirlwind wedding day often never allows time for such photos and Wedding Anniversary shoots are fast becoming the perfect way to complete your wedding photography story.

Andrei & Iwona celebrated their intimate, spring wedding in the forever breathtaking gardens of Villa Cimbrone, with 30 of their closest friends and family. These predominately black and white images are inspired by old Italian art films, like the nostalgic ‘Cinema Paradiso’.  In it’s own ‘Paradiso’, the Villa Cimbrone gardens provide mystery and suspense as the perfect backdrop for these bride and groom portraits.

Shoes, Shoes, Shoes, traditional wedding and non. So often ‘the SHOES’ are a way for a bride to let her personality peak through from under the dress. ‘The SHOES’…high heeled, wedged, flat or between the toes are one of my all time favourite details of the day to shoot. Here are just a few of the collection…only a few from my fetish!

This is a collection of my all time favourite images, shot by Pasquale and I over the last two years. For many of the images we had to look up which camera shot the image to know who the picture belonged to. The album is a work in progress since there are about 300 000 images to go through, literally.

CONSIDER MAKING YOUR WEDDING UNPLUGGED!
WHY CELLPHONES AND IPADS HAVE BECOME A REAL NIGHTMARE FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS

1. They spoil our chances of getting great reportage photographs

Especially during the ceremony and other purely reportage moments during a wedding. When we look back at the guests during the ceremony, instead of seeing faces and their emotions, we see what looks like a bad advert for iPhones or iPads. The ceremony is one of the moments during a wedding when we can take great emotional portraits. Well it used to be, now we have cell phones and iPads which block our view. Some guests even climb onto the alter or stand up to get a better view. This can upset the celebrants and they can even call an end to all photography during the ceremony, thanks to these indiscreet and inconsiderate photographers.

 2. The passionate guest photographer in every shot

Even guests who have bought big cameras on their trip to china can really get in the way. Often when shooting the exchanging of rings I have the friend photographer as a background. Or Uncle Harry with his shiny bald head and his huge camera. When I complain, Uncle Harry insists “ don’t worry I got a good shot”. I usually shoot with at least one other photographer and we carefully plan strategies to make sure we are not in each other’s images. Naturally a professional or non professional photographer friend will not have any idea about these and they can often unintentionally ruin your images.

 3. They waste precious time for low quality images

There is no way your guests’ cellphones will compete with the quality of our cameras. After the ceremony we always end up with very little time and so much to do. (Couple portraits and group images) At least 10 guests will stop the couple to take photos with their cellphones in the worst light with the bad backgrounds. This can waste up to 30 minutes, which is often all I am given to do couple portraits and this is why the images from eloping couples weddings are so much better. I have more time and no distractions.

 4. They get in the way

The absolute worst problem is during the entrance and exit of the ceremony. These are already difficult shots to take, since they are fast, in movement and the light can change dramatically. People will just put themselves between the photographer and the couple without a second thought. Even if they don’t, the sea of cellphones pointing at the bride when they enter is just really the most unromantic sight.

5. Exhausting for the couple

Most couples find having their picture taken quite traumatic, but when groups and portraits have to be done over and over thanks to guests, the couples tend to have had their fill of photography by the time it’s my turn.

 6. iPhone and iPads take unflattering pictures

Every bride wants to look her best on her wedding day. Most tell me they don’t like pictures of themselves. The reason is that most of the images they have seen of themselves, have been taken with cellphones. Taking flattering images is an art form and best left to professionals. Even worse, your guest go and post those most unflattering images all over social media.

So what can be done?

Have an unplugged wedding at least until the reception. Ask all guests not to take pictures with their devices until the reception. You could buy the negatives from your photographers and make copies for your guests. The added bonus of this is that cellphones and ipads take very unflattering pictures, in this way you can insure you don’t have any images you hate, being posted on social media for the world to see. Make sure your friends with their big cameras are not going to shoot during the ceremony.

Naturally this is not a must, they are your wedding images and it’s up to you. But after having shot hundreds and hundreds of weddings, this is my experience. It used to be much easier to shoot weddings when cellphones didn’t take images. It is such a shame to ruin your wedding pictures for such a little thing. It also means that guests can actually live the moment, instead of recording it to relive it later.

Wedding in Puglia

I have only done two weddings in Puglia but I have to say I was very impressed. The towns and landscapes are gorgeous. The sea is a startling colour and things are fairly priced. Easy to get to because of the Bari airport. Both weddings I did were held at Masseras (which is an old farm estate). The architecture is wonderfully simple and graphic. Hinting to Greek and North Africa architecture. I found the people to be very friendly and on both occasions there was not a hitch in organisation or service. If you would like to put in contact with an Italian wedding planner who does weddings in Puglia just contact us.

A show of lights

We adore light shows and design, especially in a beautiful garden. When one has the aperitivo (don’t you love that word) on the terrace and you walk to the crypt afterwards they often give divine lighting shows to the dizzy wandering guest. And if there is time to take a few quick photographs, you will get images that few others have. Below I have included a few images of the use of truly breathtaking lighting.
