FAQ English


Where are you based?

I am based in Olbia, about 15 km from the Costa Smeralda in the north east of Sardinia ( Italy)


Are you willing to travel?

I love traveling, meeting new people and cultures. I've been living and working abroad most of my life and will be very happy to travel to your wedding destination worldwide.


What is your style?

I love street photography and candid portraits, so my style is mainly artistic reportage. My goal is to capture the essence of your wedding day taking photos that will give you the same emotions for many years to come.

Trough our reportage you will be able to live again all those magic moments you have lived but also to see the funny stuff you have missed with your own eyes.


Do you have a price list?

Not really. Every wedding is so unique, I'm very open to different requests and you can get a FREE and tailored quote for your wedding service here.


Are you the one who is going to take the pictures?

Yes, without a doubt. You won't have the surprise of having another photographer the day of your wedding... I only accept a limited number of wedding each year and I do not take double bookings on the same date. Once you book me I'm all yours for the date chosen.

I will also be the one selecting and post-processing one by one all your photos.


How long will it take to see the pictures?

The pictures will be uploaded to a private link within 45 days. We love to deliver our galleries ready for you to watch, download and share as soon as possible still keeping the best quality ever. Each selected picture will be edited individually and ready for print.


Do you work alone?

I always work with my partner Cristina, who follows the groom preparation and gives me a second point of view throughout the most important moments of your wedding day. The big advantage of working together as a team for many years, is not just total trust between us even during difficult times, but also having the same idea of reportage and the same shooting style.


Can we meet you before booking?

I think it's very important to meet in person or via Skype if you are too far away. We can see all details, explain to you how I work and find out if we like each other.


Can we print the wedding photos somewhere else ?

You can  print the photos wherever you prefer. We do our printing with an amazing lab and all the photos taken will be optimised and get the best result trough their printers. But you can get good prints with any professional lab.

  Do you also make Wedding videos?

I don’t make wedding videos myself, but i do work with few selected professional video makers who share my view for wedding reportage, who are able to tell the story of your day without much intrusions and very little staging. You are absolutely free to choose any other professional that you trust for your wedding video if you prefer so.

How many photos will you deliver?

The number varies according to many  different factors. We do not shoot photos just to make a number... on average we deliver about 300-500 photos for a full day wedding.

How many hours will the service last?

It depends on the wedding . The longest service we provide for full day coverage is 12 hours. We can agree the number hours  according to your own needs and wedding schedule.

How are you archiving the wedding photos ?

All the cameras used have a double memory card, so to have an instant back up during the  shooting. All photos will be  saved in an external hard disk by the end of the day plus an extra double back up as soon as we get to the studio, before formatting the original cards. All photos will be kept for 60 days after delivery.

Do you Photoshop me  to make me look slimmer , remove wrinkles  or add/remove a person from the photo ?

We personally edit each photo taken. The edit will optimise colours and exposure but we do not manipulate photos removing wrinkles or making you look like an avatar. ( We could only remove little spots on the skin or scars for photos chosen for printing)

Do we need to provide food for you?

We do not eat much :)  But we will need to get something to eat if the service last  longer then 5 hours.
