Ana and Federico chose a very simple yet elegant wedding which gave me the opportunity to shoot beautiful couple photographs

Last year I was hired by a young couple as the photographer of their wedding which was held in a small mountain village in the Trentino region in Northern Italy.

Well, the gorgeous landscape definitely played a key role for my shots of the wedding day, but this was just one of the reasons that helped me to offer Ana and Federico a nice wedding reportage.

The bride chose many elegant details for her outfit, hairstyle and make-up which enhanced her natural intense beauty.

The two of them chose a very intimate and simple style for this important day but many elegant details (including the bride’s dress, accessories and hairstyle, the picturesque mountain town where the banquet was held) made the whole event very beautiful and their spontaneous feelings ensured very intense and moving photographs to be shot with little effort on my side.

Intense feelings shined on the bride’s and groom’s faces during the wedding ceremony while elegant details decorated the church.

There were quite few participants for an Italian wedding, just a bunch of about 40 people, but sincere feelings made the relatives’ and friends’ faces glow or melt into tears, which ensured a genuine and joyful  atmosphere. An original touch was also provided by the priest who, being at the same time the bride’s brother, was sincerely moved.

The priest of this wedding was the bride’s sister which contributed to make the ceremony more intense with sincere feelings bursting out spontaneously

Therefore, even if this might sound rhetoric, I must say I was delighted to be in charge of Ana’s and Federico’s wedding reportage and enjoyed very much these simple yet perfect celebrations.
