Destination weddings are a growing trend. More than 18,000 American couples now get married overseas every year. Though some of those couples might hire a photographer that is coming from USA to capture their event, others will pay to have a local photographer like me to take picture for their the big day.
This is a very niche market.
The fact that destination weddings are smaller and more relaxed than the average domestic wedding can also make for a more flexible and creative shoot.
But there are some things to know about destination wedding: time spent traveling also means time lost from other jobs and most destination wedding photographers adjust their charges accordingly.Travel can also increase the risk of loss or damage to equipment: because of this, the three photographers say they never take more gear than they can hold in a carry-on. That means paring gear down to the bare essentials.
Destination Wedding gear.
Downsize, downsize, downsize: That’s the mantra of every destination wedding photographers.

Usually I met a lot o couples that are going to get married in Italy few minutes before the wedding ... As a destination wedding photographer I know that is not easy to meet each other before the wedding.
There is something that I would like to tell to all brides and grooms:
1)I really enjoy to meet the bride and the groom before the wedding day for a coffee and a chat. It’ s the first contact, really important to act freely during the wedding. I’m a fly on the wall photographer during the wedding but it’s important to know each other and to understand what the couple think about their weddings. To understand if they want some posed, groups and when they want the photographer to take the pictures;
2) I really like brides that write to me to ask or to explain what they want, knowing the images the dreams help me to give to the couple a better service;
3) There are some brides that send me a little collection of old photos or link to my pictures that they like, they give me an idea of what they like most, so that I can imagine their tastes;
4) Sometimes I meet some grooms that give me a list of the must have images, once a groom give me a list of 36 groups shot to be taken… It was really funny a really though job for me and my assistant;
5) I really like to be connected on Facebook it’s easy to share information and to know a little bit more of each others.

Bergamo is a nice art city near Milan. I really like to shoot weddings in Bergamo becuse there are a lot of nice castles and Villas around Bergamo.
So in anice spring afternoon full of sun and ahppiness was really a paleasure to shoot a wedding in Bergamo.
I'm also a lucky wedding photographer, the bride and the groom are really beautiful.
I usually shoot wedding near Bergamo:
•Palazzo Barbò , Torre Pallavicina
•Villa Moroni, Stezzano
•Carobbio degli Angeli
•Castello di Marne, Filago
•Villa Zanchi, Bergamo
It’s not the equipment that makes a good photographer,but if you’re a wedding photographer, you know that your gear is really important.
So wich is the best lens for your wedding photography business?
Well it’ easy I would like to have a really light lens, a great zoom 16-80mm f 1.8.
O I know this lens does not exist.
So for me the best walk around lens for a wedding photographer is the 24-70 mm f2.8 because cover from a wide angle to a moderate tele for nice portraits.
Nikon and Canon have their nice flagship 24-70mm lenses. So it’s time to save your money to buy a new lens.

Laura e Giacomo are so nice!!!
I met Laura and Giacomo two times, once in my studio and once at their home, before the wedding, they explain me everithing they also give me a PDF wit the plan of the day and a lot of useful informations. They also showed me the picture of the most important people in the wedding. So for me was really easy to understand their whishes... Also a little run with the boat on the lake Como was really a pleasure. It was really a pleasure to work with them.
