PORTRAIT SESSION ADVICE

SCHEDULING YOUR SESSION

Portrait sessions usually are up to 2 hours and are ideally in the evening. The best light is two hours before sunset. However, I’m always up for shooting any time of day, like very earlier in the morning. Even shooting at night can be really incredible and unique, especially in the big cities!

I perfectly know it’s not always possible to schedule the portrait session on a weekday evening, but I usually deeply recommend it because the parks are emptier, the sidewalks are less busy so we can have more privacy and a more intimate space to enjoy the session without distractions.

It's very important to schedule the portrait session on what you would like to use the photos for. The average edit time for the full portrait session is 2 months, but you can also have all the pictures in 3 weeks buying an extra package, so I recommend scheduling your session in time for your purpose.

About The Session

My portrait sessions are about celebrating your life together, but also it's the perfect chance to forget how you've previously taken photos up until now and to find a new way to look at your memories. I love to capture moments that tell your emotions, but I also love to use my creativity to realise your pictures.

My portrait sessions (engagement sessions or wedding portrait sessions) are usually very relaxed, funny, creative, and most important thing, very intimate! I love to enjoy every moment all together and the result is a collection of very natural photos to share with your family and friends.

Portrait sessions, especially engagement sessions, are the perfect moment to know each other, I mean you, me, and my camera. After the engagement sessions I love to have feedbacks you may have incase we need to change anything for the wedding day portraits. Some couples prefer more intimate pictures, but sometimes the sessions lead people to be more funny or creative, but it’s always a great practice for the wedding day photos as well .

LOCATION

I can shoot anywhere. Anywhere! My style is not influenced by the environment in which I’m shooting, but it's influenced by the people. The pictures that I prefer more are always about intimate things, and intimate things are never connected to the environment but always to the emotions between the people. Anyway, I perfectly know we need a place to shoot, so let me recommend you something!

ANYWHERE IS MY FAVORITE LOCATION!!!

Think about what inspire you, and make the choice as personal as you can. Remember: the best location doesn't exist, so choose the place that helps you to express yourself at your best!

GET TOGETHER AND BRAINSTORM

INTIMATE & QUITE SPACE ARE AWESOME

ALTERNATIVE SPACES HELP TO BE CREATIVE

THE WORLD OF YOUR OWN AND A GREAT LIGHT ARE THE BEST MIX EVER!!!

URBAN SPACES ARE GREAT TO PLAY WITH

FIND YOURSELF WHEREVER YOU ARE

IN THE HEART OF THE COUNTRYSIDE

METROPOLIS LOOK AWESOME ANYTIME

Metropolis are a perfect environment to play with geometry, lines and moody! Don't be afraid to shoot during the night!

CRAZY PLACES ARE AWESOME TO CREATE NEW CLICHÉS

LUXURY PLACES ARE ALSO GREAT

SIMPLE AND UNUSUAL PLACES CAN BE AWESOME TO PLAY TOGETHER

INTO EVERY STORM

What to Wear and What to Bring

Your outfits must be a reflection of you. My two cents are: be more casually for the engagement session, be more formal for your wedding portraits, but in any case, please come as you are!

Be yourself! No matter how you look like, or how unsual your style is, just feel comfortable in your own skin!

SOMETING ABOUT MY STYLE AND WHAT I LOVE MORE

My style is a mix between candid things and cool portraits, but the mood that I love more is about create intimate pictures. Capturing delicate and small details about human relationships is my main goal, and everyone choose me should be prepared to go deep inside "the bubble". I work worldwide, so I perfectly know we've different culture, as I perfectly know there're a lot of great photographers around the world, so if you're choosing me it means you'll be prepare to experience something more than a click.

WELCOME TO YOUR NEW MEMORIES

This guide was written to help plan for your session, but it’s definitively not a rule book. The most important thing in photography and in life also, is to feel free to be who you are, however you are, whenever you are and wherever you want to be. Hope to meet you soon, and to make you proud of your choice!
