There is some information related to your wedding that is invaluable for us photographers (but also for videomakers) in order to do our job better. Since this is a unique event in your life, it would be a good idea that the professional you have chosen telling the wedding day at least ask you for the information that I will list in this article.
If you are our customers, don't worry: we will ask you in time for all the details we need to produce the best wedding photo shoot for you. Maybe, if you are curious, read the article to the end to know what to expect, but above all the reasons why we do it.
For those who are here looking for wedding tips, also on how to choose your wedding photographer, is welcome: in your search for a photographer / videomaker it could be useful ask the professionals in front of you what information they need. So you'll be able to evaluate them based on what you have learned here. Let's get started!
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!
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.
