FAQs

  • DO YOU WORK ONLY IN HUNTSVILLE, AL. ?

    No, although I love Huntsville I must admit I love to travel. Obviously, all traveling expenses, that is petrol, tolls and overnight accommodation, can have an impact upon the wedding costs. Also because a wedding out of my region can bring an undertaking of more than one day, as a consequence, this may result in a loss of wedding here in Tuscany.
  • HOW CAN I MAKE A RESERVATION FOR MY WEDDING?

    The best way we can get started is through our contact page. Once you fill it out and submit it to me, I will get back to you in a short amount of time. We will then make arrangements for an appointment. If this not possible we can arrange contact via skype or video conference. If you decide to employ me as your wedding photographer we will put together a contract to lock in your date as well as all everything we discussed about your wedding needs.
  • I HAVE SEEN THE PICTURES OF YOUR WEDDINGS IN YOUR BLOG AND AND IT IS SO INCREDIBLE TO SEE HOW PEOPLE HAVE FUN DURING THE EVENT, THEY ARE HAPPY AND SMILING. ARE YOU GOOD AT SEIZING THE MOMENTS OR THE WEDDINGS ARE REALLY SO FUNNY?

    We are called Captured Moments for a reason, lol. Reportage is strongly connected to what really happens so it’s impossible for a photographer, even the most watchful one, to take a picture of a situation that doesn’t exist. The most touching weddings that you can see in my blog or in those of my colleagues have been really rich in events ; obviously , sometimes the photographer can make a difference because he can anticipate or catch an event while it’s happening. but if nothing happens it’s true that he cannot do too much about it. For this reason I ask the bride and groom and their guests to help me and make sure that many things could happen during the wedding day so to make their story exclusive and touching.
  • IS THE LOCATION IMPORTANT FOR A GOOD OUTCOME OF THE PICTURES?

    It would be untrue of me to say that location isn’t important. By “location” I mean all those places that are part of your wedding day; for example if the getting ready of a bride is realized in a little dark room this would not give me the possibility to take high level pictures but, to tell the truth, nobody could do it in the same conditions. Luminous and spacious places are fundamental elements in order to have high quality pictures, for this reason it is important to retain those aspects when you’re choosing the location together with all those funny and touching events that can happen during the wedding day as I ‘ve previously said.
  • WHEN SHOULD WE CONTACT YOU?

    It is quite difficult to answer this question because every year there are periods that are in high demand .According to my personal experience if you intend to marry in June or July it would be better to contact me at least a year before especially if the wedding will be celebrated on Saturday or Sunday which are public holidays.
  • HOW DO I DECIDE ON WHICH PACKAGE I SHOULD GET?

    So many things go into answering that question. . The price will depend on our clients’ needs; the best thing to do is to contact me after having seen my website then we’ll talk about your needs and I will show you the things I offer.  This will help you decide what is best for what you want at the end of our journey
  • WHEN WILL I SEE THE PHOTOS FROM OUR WEDDING ON THE PRIVATE ONLINE GALLERY? WHO WILL CHOOSE THE SHOTS?

    It typically takes 3-5 weeks to completely edit your wedding.  All of our packages come with your very own private online gallery.  The choice of the shots is made by me because I think that a story should be told by the “author” and not by the “characters”. Obviously we will go though them together to make sure there and no photo you DON”T want to be in the album or MUST have in album.
  • WHAT DO YOU WEAR AT THE WEDDING?

    I think it is crazy to show up at someones wedding like you’re at some casual meeting place. I’ve seen it before and I’ve often wondered did they even considered their client and the nature of the event at all. We will be there blending in looking like guest (Thank you for inviting us :)) of the wedding blending in. It’s the appropriate thing to do.
  • WE READ THAT IT TAKES FOUR-SIX MONTHS TO RECEIVE OUR POST PRODUCED PICTURES.... BUT IT’S TOO LONG!! WE WOULD LIKE TO HAVE THEM BEFORE .... WHAT EXACTLY DOES IT TAKE TO POST PRODUCE THE PICTURES WHEN YOU DO NOT EVEN HAVE TO PRINT THEM?

    Well….this is a very difficult matter and I hope my explanation is clear …I take the pictures and post produce them by myself; I don’t delegate the post production work to someone else so it should be quite clear that if I am “physically” taking pictures during a wedding I cannot be at home doing the post production. May, June, July and even September are very very busy months for me, so the pictures taken in this period will be obviously seen and analyzed starting from October up to December. This is the reason why it takes so long for you to receive your pictures. I suppose you are asking yourself why I dedicate so much time to the choice of the shots and the post production work …….well the answer is really simple: because I think that this is what counts toward creating my signature style and believe it has a great impact on the final work. And finally , as you are talking about printed pictures, it must be said that this operation does not take much more than sending the files to be printed. The tell the truth the biggest task is in the choice of pictures and their post production. Another thing to point out is that my job (together with that of my colleagues) is and “artistic “ one which means that it is closely related to the inspiration that I have on that day; and if on that particular day I’m not at my best for doing post production and choose the pictures of your wedding, well I prefer to put it o until I have the right inspiration. My job cannot be so cut-and-dried like the one you can find in a factory…..So if you think that me and my work are good and worthy enough of the waiting time to have your pictures post produced as they deserve….well …I’m your wedding photographer! On the other hand…if you are in a hurry, or if you think that my job is not worth waiting so long for ….well you can choose another photographer, maybe one who delegates the post production of his pictures to someone else and you will surely receive them in a very short time. You can find lots of them around! I don’t want to say if this is right or wrong…. Or …you can even choose a photographer who is not so busy and he will surely be able to give you your wedding pictures in a very very short time! The choice is yours!
  • MAY I CHOOSE A PHOTOGRAPH ALBUM ?

    Sure you can! At our studio we can suggest many different kinds of traditional album together with the print you prefer best, including fine art print, that is made using a high quality, special cotton paper. It is quite an understatement to call them “traditional” photograph albums because they are more similar to decorative items. You must absolutely see them, they are designed and created by an important firm called “5 punto 6” ( www.5punto6.it ). As I don’t like photobook I simply do not recommend it , I think it is not suitable to my reportage style.
