My photography in one word? Photojournalism. Wedding photography? A travel reportage! That's how I try to turn each job into a voyage: be it a feast in India or a wedding service. What is otherwise a wedding, if not a journey? If you try and analyze it, you will find many similar characteristics right from the start: the getting ready, the planning, the anxiety, the joy, trepidation with the extra factor of the unknown being thrown in on how it will end. These are all the elements a good photo reporter is confronted with. This is how I find myself being an interpreter of emotions on the day; trying to capture a look, a moment of being lost, a smile, a tear, a gesture of affection, a hug from a sincere friend. 
 
The couple is free to move, amongst friends, guests or walking to or from places to represent past memories, and I, always in a discrete manner, try to catch every single one of those precious moments. Without construction, without "striking a pose", without creation fiction, without invading their private space, without falseness. I try to transmit their energies! 
 
Roaming in Florence or in the hills of Tuscany, on the Amalfi coast or in the small streets of Rome or Venice, amongst the skyscrapers of New York, in the city of London or along the streets of jazz in New Orleans, between the vineyards or in a regional market or simply walking alone or amid people or just drinking an aperitif with friends during the reception. Then I continue during the party when the atmosphere becomes more informal. If you desire we can also spend time for a Creative Portrait session, but in a different way from the formal classical shots.
