Mother Nature has blessed Italy with many of her wonders: divine landscapes, breathtaking water-bodies, and a sunlight that can make anything look astonishing. Enhanced by people over the centuries, it also has some of the most prominent architectural heritage in the world.

Personal Taste and Style
Know thyself — the ancient wise man Socrates told us a long time ago. It couldn't be truer when it comes to defining the photographer you should look for your wedding. As every wedding photographer has his unique style and philosophy, the best photographer is the one that matches with your taste and personal preferences and the one that can counseil you before, during and after the event. For example, we can set the rooms up for you as we know what the best lights should be like, which spot is the best for a civil wedding and how the photobook would look perfect!
The best photographer also should have experience in the styles you are seeking. Do you want your wedding photos to be classy or trendy? Are you organizing it in a traditional mansion? Browse through some of your favorite wedding photos, look for a portfolio that answers all these questions, and you now know the type of photographer you want. Easy!

Ask Questions — a Lot of Them
The perfect photographer for your wedding is not only the one with a similar taste to you: he/she also needs to have the right personality, as a person who would be following every move in the most important day of your life. Plus, you have to be able to build a trusty relationship. The way to find the personality traits, you have to be prepared to ask a lot of questions, possibly to a few different photographers.
The ideal Italian wedding photographer would earnestly listen to what you have to say, show an interest to know you and the significance of your wedding and then asks you a lot of questions too! This shows you how and if he is really involved. Knowing your love story, how you met, your jobs, is a good way to set the basis of a good job in order to personalize the final product. Only then, hopefully, they would be able to capture your wedding day the way you pictured it in your dreams.

Budget and Experience
Italian wedding photographers come with many different experiences and backgrounds, albeit for a great range of budgets. As a result, it's important that you have your financial limitations figured out, or at least, you know the tentative amount you are willing to spend. Once done, you can concentrate on the experience level you should expect.
As an art medium that demands creative expressions, experience may not be the most important thing to judge a wedding photographer. However, it certainly helps to give you confidence in the photographers' ability, and often costs money proportionately. IstantiSenzaTempo surely has some expertise in its job: Francesco, for example, is an ANFM selected photographer (the italian association of professional wedding photographers) and some of his photos were selected on MyWed, WPS and Fearless Photographers and published on well known wedding blogs, as Storyboard Wedding (twice!), Glittery Bride, Wedding Wonderland and Love Inc.
