I have a suggestion for all the couples who are organizing their special day: set a budget for the photographer too and put it among the most important elements to consider, not the last thing!
So many feelings together surrounded this gorgeous wedding at Ca' Vittoria. I will never forget it, that's for sure. Our beloved Lorenza and Giorgio, they will always have a special place into my heart, particularly for their innumerable virtues. I'll have this indelible memory all life long with me because for the very first time in my entire career I risked to forfeit. The previous day I had to contact them : I had plaques in my throat, my temperature was 39.5 degrees, I was seriously ill.
Varanasi is the last stop of our journey, but it would deserve an entire chapter of our story. It is the end and the begin of everything, Varanasi is ancient and nowadays India. Everything since anytime in one unique town. It's mysticism and spiritual energy. Many unexplainable things for us are part of the Hindus spiritual everyday life. Every breath and step, I felt I was raising more and more. I was surprised, moved and enchanted, I felt in love with this eclectic city.
My first trip to India has been in 2011 and since then I've never stopped dreaming to come back to that magical land. Mother India taught me so much and somehow that journey gave me the bravery to become professional. Since then I've always felt a sort of recall from India, I knew I had a mission to accomplish there. One day I finally managed to combine photography and travel. In fact, this year on February I hit the road with some of my closer friends. Our aim was to show the powerful spirituality you can breath there and I hope I managed to capture it through my works.
The professional growth that leads to becoming a wedding photographer is always unique for each one of us, still, there is always some kind of sparkle...
When I shoot Asti I always look for that real life mosaic that hides beneath the surface of the image itself. The one I always made it back for.
I've met Michela and Manuele at Marzia's wedding, Michela's sister. As I first saw them, I realised they were the perfect couple for the concept I had on my mind. In a few while, I'll launch my brand new project. It will tell about love at 360 degrees, any shape or shade of it and it will be for everyone... Follow me, I promise it's going to be fun.
