Location Reception, Villa la Foce, Pienza, Tuscany
Location Ceremony, Duomo di Pienza , Siena.
a very special thanks to Silvana and Stefano, for his point of view over my work:
” Choosing your photographer is probably one of the most important decisions you will make when planning your wedding (no ladies it is not the dress!) Remember that this is the person who will capture the day and whose artwork will catapult you back to those special moments for many years to come. Having reviewed pretty much every photograph on Andrea’s website, we loved the way he captured both humour and joy at weddings and after our first skype call it was obvious we had found our man! Unpretentious, funny, talented and not to mention a vehemently proud Tuscan, his enthusiasm added to our excitement as we began planning our wedding in the Val d’Orcia. Despite some logistical difficulties with being one based in the U.S the other in U.K., and spending limited time in the same continent, let alone in the same country, we decided to make life even more complicated by marrying in a third country where neither of us are resident! A decision we will never regret, Tuscany really has it all; a region of outstanding beauty, wine, food and most importantly warm and friendly locals and suppliers who all contributed to making the planning and actual day so wonderful. The wedding day was a fairytale, that is despite the extreme 36 degree heat, which incidentally created the environment for some of the most memorable photos of the day. Andrea’s dedication to getting the best shot involved diving into nearby fields and climbing trees, much to the bemusement of our guests on the way to the reception. Superhuman photography skills apart, even he didn’t have the power to control the traffic particularly when a motorbike group arrived on the scene just at the right/wrong time, which resulted in a one of our favourite snapshots. Unbelievable, stunning, incredible, emotional, these are just some of the adjectives used to describe Andrea’s brilliant work. He managed to capture the laughter (we never realised we all laughed so much!), tears, face pulling, intimate moments and stolen glances which formed the story of our special day. Thank you Andrea. Thank you for probably the best wedding gift we have received, and one which brings a smile to our faces even on the rainiest days here in London”
