I have always loved photography since I was a kid and I cannot immagine my life without a camera in my hands. Photography is part of me and I need shooting to stop memories, to keep alive emotions, to tell experiences.
Wedding photography is the core of my activity, I love being beside my brides and grooms to share wiht them the magic of the moment they are living. Every time it is a new emotion, a surprise, a joy. I feel honored to be the one that tells the story of one of the most important day.
My style has a photojournalistic basis, even though with some couples in certain situation I love portrait shooting as well. My photography wants to represent reality and capture emotions
I really love feelings: smiles, tears and hugs are pure energy for my soul
When planning our wedding, we decided that one of the most important aspects would be our choice of photographer. Many of our already married friends had told us that the day passes very quickly. It is also such a unique occasion when your friends and family are together in a way that they will probably never be again. We really wanted someone who could help us capture some of the magic of the day for posterity. For this reason we wanted someone who practiced the reportage style and as we both love art we also wanted someone who could create beautiful images.
When we saw Nicola's portofolio online we know we had found that person. He delivered on every level. He and his assistant Andrea were consummate professionals whilst also being very good company. Nicola made all our guests feel at ease in front of the camera and a lot of the time you didn't even notice him taking photographs.
We are so thrilled with the results. They are exactly what we hoped for and more! Nicola has succeeded in producing such beautiful, creative images whilst also capturing the joy of that day, the character of people, lovely spontaneous moments, our love for each other and the love in our parents' eyes. Looking at his photographs we are able to relive the sunshine, the happiness, the fun and that is such a gift.
With Nicola you get more than a wedding photographer you get a highly talented artist who is passionate about his work. Thank you Nicola!
Documenting our wedding day was one of our top priorities and something that we put a lot of time and effort into researching. We started our research about 18 months before our wedding day, and Nicola was one of the first photographers we came across. His portfolio and photojournalistic style, along with his creative mind and eye, impressed us immediately and, despite looking at the work of others, we came back to Nicola time and time again.
We wanted someone who could document our special day in a spontaneous manner, allowing us to enjoy the day without interruption, safe in the knowledge that the end-product would be sensational.
Nicola was fun to work with and full of positive energy, and it was a pleasure to spend a few days with him. He has delivered a beautiful body of work, a gift, that exceeded our expectations and that we are so proud of. Nicola is an artist who captures moments and freezes time itself, turning it into something tangible and eternal that will forever be a reminder of the most important day of our lives.
Nicola says that his mission in life is to leave a lasting mark on the hearts of those he meets, and he has accomplished that mission with us. Not only have we received a masterful work of art, we have gained a friend and someone who we will remember for the rest of our lives – he has earned his place in both our hearts and minds.
Would we recommend Nicola? If you’re looking for true craftsmanship, you need look no further.
