WEDDING PLANNER: WEDDINGSITALY VALENTINA ZAVARINI

When my then-fiancé (now husband) and I started looking for a wedding photographer in Italy, we didn’t know where to start. Living in the U.S., we had to completely rely on each photographer’s online portfolio when making a decision about who to select. This made us nervous because we knew how crucial it was for a bride and groom to get along and “click” with their photographer – after all, this person would be responsible for capturing the most important moments of our wedding! At one point, when we had narrowed down our options to two photographers, we decided that it was important to interview them both. As soon as we started video chatting with Daniele over WhatsApp, we immediately connected with him. We could tell that he was extremely professional, very kind, and that we would feel comfortable having him by our side on such a momentous occasion in our lives. In the months leading up to the wedding, Daniele was very responsive to all of our questions and maintained his professionalism (even when he was in the midst of a busy wedding season).

 

We had a two-day wedding event and, on the first day (the Indian ceremony + welcome cocktail), we finally met Daniele face-to-face. We instantly clicked with him. A wave of relief washed over us as, upon meeting him in person, we knew that he was someone around whom we could truly be ourselves. He is extremely easy to talk to, very patient, and is unmistakably passionate about what he does. He goes above and beyond to make you feel like your wedding day is important and remains fully present when he is working – there are never any distractions. On the second day – the wedding day itself – seeing Daniele in the morning helped calm any nervous feelings we had about that day going “just right”. It was evident that he had shot several weddings before and knew exactly what he was doing. We felt entirely comfortable sharing our intimate moments with him. At the end of the night, we hugged him goodbye – but only after my husband and I danced one final song on the dance floor together with Daniele and his assistant, Roberta.

 

Daniele’s talent speaks for itself – his portfolio is undoubtedly amazing – so we hope that this review conveys what can be hard to gauge online. We hope that it conveys what a great person he is and how easy it was to work with him. Aside from being a gifted photographer, Daniele is flexible, professional, and an asset to have by your side on your wedding day. Consider yourself lucky to have him photograph your wedding – that’s certainly how we feel!

 

Also, it is worth noting that the day after the wedding, Daniele sent us approximately 15 edited photos of the wedding’s festivities. How he found the time and energy to pull them together completely escapes us but they were a wonderful surprise that we greatly appreciated!

 

Grazie mille, Daniele.

Aparna & Safir
