During eetings with our couples we always talk about how they are organizing their wedding. Andrea and I often find ourselves giving them advices and tips, both generic and very specific, on the many topics we deal with. Although we are pleased to give tips on issues that do not concern us strictly as professionals – but that we know deeply, thanks to our experience –, of course what we care the most is the best result for photographs and videos: we often talk about even the simplest precautions to follow in order to obtain the maximum result in every situation.
So I decided to summarize our best tips for your wedding photos by theme. Here they are divided into 8 topics!
If you follow this blog or if you already read some of my articles, you should know by now: I love my job.
Maybe what you don't know is why I chose it. Yes, because it was a precise choice of mine, since several years ago I had a completely different job. And I always had that bad feeling of wasting my time, day after day.
But now I do what I like, for many reasons. Here they are.
My favourite photo of Vanessa and Nick Wedding. Even if they are halfway around the world we keep messaging each other.
Some time ago I gave you some advice on how to plan an outdoor civil wedding in Rome or in any other place that allows you to hold the wedding ceremony in venues. In this article I would rather focus on the countless advantages that the celebration of the civil ceremony in venue has, both from a photographic and a practical point of view: if you have never been a guest in weddings organized in this way, perhaps you do not even imagine how much hold the ceremony in venue can radically change the whole experience of the wedding day both for the couple and the guests.
It goes without saying that, if you are a believer and it is important for you to celebrate your wedding in a sacred place, there are no benefits: the spirituality of the religious ceremony certainly comes first over everything else.
If, on the other hand, you are still undecided about what to do or if you intend to get married in a civil ceremony, find out what are the five reasons why you should prefer the civil ceremony in venue!
What could be more suggestive than a wedding ceremony in the woods?
I'm a technology lover, but fro me some things are linked inevitably to the analog world. For example I just can't read comics on a screen, whether they are comics, manga, manhwa, graphic novels or whatever. And photos also fall into the category of those objects I prefer to have in physical rather than digital format.
As you may know, in our offer of wedding photo services we do not include albums or photobooks in our package, not only because we prefer to leave the freedom to choose whether to buy them or not, but above all because these products are so customizable that it would not make sense to include them in a closed package offer: setting a price for the album or photo book should limit some choices, instead we prefer that our couples have maximum freedom of expression even designing their album or photo book.
But if you're still undecided, read on the 5 reasons to have a photo book. And not only that: at the bottom of this article you will also find some answers to the most frequently asked questions by our couples on this very topic!

This topic concerns any type of professional photography and not only wedding photography, except for some isolated cases: photojournalists, who need to deliver the photos to their clients as soon as possible, do not have enough time for the editing and therefore they deliver the photos as they are developed directly by the camera (it is called OOC, Out Of Camera).
For all other cases, however, editing is an integral part of the creative process of making a photograph.
Throughout this article there will be interactive comparisons to show you the difference between an edited photo and the same photo Out of Camera. Simply move the slider below the picture to get immediate feedback of what I am writing to you.
How to go from a "dull" photograph to one in which the couple is really the center of attention.
So you have already read the answer to the initial question in brief, but if you want to better understand what happens to a photograph of yours, I recommend you read on!
