Get photographed? No fear, only splendor and spontaneity!
With his simplicity and sympathy he managed to break the shyness of both us and our guests. Who would have thought that we would have fun being photographed? (★★★★★ Jacopo e Ilaria)
For our wedding we were looking for a photographer who wasn’t “a burden”, who wasn’t “forced photos”, who wasn’t “the photographer is me and I tell you what you need to do”. Ours had to be real photos, spontaneous photos born by chance on the most beautiful day of our lives. With Mirko that day was like having an extra friend taking pictures of us.

The first challenge of the spouses: to be the center of attention
Try a speech in front of the mirror and speak in public. Hum in the shower or perform on a stage. Try on a dress in the dressing room or on the catwalk.
You know, knowing that someone is watching us, feeling the gaze of others pointed at us, being the center of attention, can deeply embarrass us. This is also the case when you are in front of a photographic lens, especially if this occurs on a day already so full of expectations, emotions, expectations such as the wedding day. That mix of tension, happiness, trepidation, combined with the fear of not looking good in photos, with the discomfort of feeling observed by relatives, friends, florist, hairdresser, photographer, beautician … can give a devastating result: fake photos, in which the effort to look-beautiful-and-smile-despite-the emotion is perceived more than the authenticity of a day as special as that of the wedding.
It happened to me many times: I met spouses so tense for the logistical details of the party, for the fear that something would go wrong, for the fear that the photos would go wrong, that, in the end, they were the only ones who did not enjoy the day.
The photographer’s gaze
Instead, the spouses are the protagonists: it is their special day, what they have desired, expected, prepared with care and must be able to live it happy, serene, calm, knowing that those around them are not inquiring looks, but are the eyes of people who love them and share their joy.
And the photographer’s eye is the first to have to look at them in this way: the photographer is a bit the director of the day, the one who will guide the times of the party, the one who will capture all the details and, of all those present, will be the one who will spend more time with the spouses, from the moment of the morning preparations to the evening dances and the cutting of the cake.
That’s why the photographer must be, first of all, an ally.
Empathy, understanding, spontaneity: the RealWed method
This is exactly what I do thanks to the RealWed method, the only one that starts not from the simple photographic technique, but which allows you to create a real empathy with my spouses. A relationship that is built from the first meetings, which is strengthened with the premarital service and that on the day of the wedding allows us to move in perfect harmony.
You and your fiancé will be sure of you, perfectly at ease, calm and serene, both with guests and with me. You will not have fears and embarrassments, but you will be able to express your joy and your emotion with naturalness and simplicity and your photo shoot will be not the simple chronology of the day, but an authentic story, full of life, sincere: it will talk about you and nobody other, because those photographs will have been able to grasp the unique characteristics of your love, your story, the details of the party, the unique aspects of your characters, your lives, your families, friends who share the joy of that day.
That’s why the photographic story created with the RealWed method, thanks to the simplicity and frankness of a relationship built over time between you and me, is truly unique and special: because each couple is different, inimitable and deserves to be told in its unrepeatable and beautiful being .
