When Ilaria and Massimiliano first got in touch with us about their relaxed summer wedding in Rome, we were so impressed by the way they were in love each other. They are really nice guys we immediately felt at ease with and we couldn’t wait to shoot their wedding!
I started at Ilaria’s parents house in Rome, where the bride and her friends were getting ready together, and it was really exciting, because everyone was in a good mood. Giuseppe instead covered the Groom getting ready where he took some very good moments between Massimiliano and his friends.
The wedding took place at Parrocchia San Giovanni Evangelista in Spinaceto and it was a traditional religious ceremony. They had several beautiful readings from friends and family, which was just magical. They were involved and excited. After the ceremony they were showered with confetti, and then we travelled directly to the reception. There, we had some quick couple portraits near the sea.
The wedding reception took place Castello Odescalchi di Santa Marinella, which is a Historical Castle on the sea, north of Rome, belonging to one of the most important noble family of old Rome. It was so unique.
It was a bright and sunny day, which was what the couple had hoped for. While the guests hung around drinking Prosecco, the couple mingled and laughed with their friends. My favourite photo from moment of the day is the one where Ilaria & Massimiliano go and greet their grandmothers. It was such a magic and emotional moment that allow us to win some photo awards too! Check it out below!
During the reception they had a lovely meal with friends and family, which everyone loved. Afterwards, the couple cut the wedding cake and the DJ kept the party going all night. They also had a photobooth, which was so entertaining. Ilaria & Massimiliano had a nice first dance with all their guests around them.
The Post Wedding
Ilaria & Massimiliano were so excited when we proposed them the post wedding photo session. Post-wedding is a photo shooting taking place in the very next days after the wedding. They wore their wedding dresses again! So, they got beautiful couple portraits in total relax without worrying about their guests waiting for them at the reception. Also, they chose their preferred locations no matter where they were. During the wedding day it would have been difficult to reach such places without delaying all their day plans. Last but not least, we could choose the best time of the day to benefit of the best light and the best situation. We started at Gianicolo at 6am just few minutes before the sunrise. Then we walked in Rome downtown in the very early morning with few or no people around. It was so magical! Look at the photos below!
What they said
“Alessandro and Giuseppe’s photos are works of art, capable of bringing to mind details, scenes, but above all emotions with the same strength as when they were experienced. Masters of light and expressiveness, there is no moment or gesture that manages to escape their eyes. They are attentive and professional in every respect. Last but not least, they are of a UNIQUE sympathy! It’s impossible not to feel at ease with them. and on such a special day, where reactions are unpredictable, knowing how to interact is not a secondary quality.”
