ELOPEMENT ADVENTURES IN TUSCANY

Big weddings are not for everyone. If you desire the most romantic, evocative and intimate way to make your dream comes true and get married in Italy, you should consider an elopement and take the opportunity to live a very unique and unforgettable experience. As a destination elopement photographer I’m specialised in photographic and focus on celebrating couples in love in epic and typically Tuscan outdoor locations.

Shauna & Luis
We had the most wonderful experience with Gabriele from our 'wedding for two' in September, 2018. You could tell he truly cares and loves what he does. Gabriele made us both feel very comfortable even though we had never had professional photos before. He was extremely hardworking all afternoon/evening, running from location to location all in an effort to get the perfect shots.

On top of how great it was spending time with Gabriele in person, the photos we received afterwards were absolutely INCREDIBLE. Every photo seemed like it came out of a magazine. Since it was only the two of us in our wedding, it was very important to have photographs to bring back to our families to show our special day. We could not have chosen a better photographer to capture this. There were too many favorite pictures to choose from and plenty of them to last us a lifetime of remembering our wedding day with the most beautiful images.

We highly recommend and would hire Gabriele again in a heartbeat! With much appreciation and admiration of his work.

My wife & I can not say enough marvelous things about Gabriele! He captured our day and love so eloquently & perfectly. He was so personable, he made us feel so comfortable, and he was so detail orientated. We appreciate all of his efforts into making our photos flawless. He was polite, kind, and so much fun to work with. We had so many laughs throughout our wedding day & he directed us beautifully. He was polite, courteous, and helpful throughout the entire process. It couldn't have been a better fit for us. We were very camera shy prior to that day and spending the day with Gabriele he made it feel effortless.

Coming from the USA and not knowing what to expect we were absolutely blown away by his ease, talent, and overall ability to make it feel like he wasn't even there - but was in the best way possible as he captured our hearts in the most intimate loving way. We couldn't be more pleased, happy, and excited with how our photographs turned out & we will cherish them for a lifetime. Thanks Gabriele.

WHAT IF YOU GET SICK AND CAN'T MAKE IT?

Although this has never happened to me in 10 years of wedding photography, I understand that illness and accidents can happen at inopportune moments. This is the most important reason why as a professional destination elopement photographer I decided to join the photography collective studio in 2011. After all these years we’ve grown organically into a team made by six professional photographers in Tuscany, me included, and operates in the sector since 1970. If me or one of our operators is sick or unavailable, I guarantee the presence of another associated professional photographer.

WHAT IS REQUIRED TO BOOK OUR ELOPEMENT DATE?

Once you're ready to book your photography, I'll need a 30% deposit and signed agreement to reserve your date. Once that's done, your date is officially booked, and I'll start making my travel and coverage plans. The balance payment will be due two weeks before the day of your event.

THEN WHAT HAPPENS?

Once you've booked your photography, I'm available to you anytime to help answer questions you may have about the rest of your wedding planning. Moreover since every clients are unique I made an online wedding prep questionnaire which every customers can easily fill. The purpose of this online form is to gather information about the day, the major players, list of family formal group shots, and the intricacies of the event itself to better organise your photo service.

HOW CAN WE PAY?

I accept bank transfer, Transferwise or Paypal. Couples cover the transaction fees.

WHEN DO YOU START?

Usually two hours before you get dress to cover getting ready photos.

WILL YOU PHOTOGRAPH THE GROOM GETTING READY?

If you've booked a two photographers photo service of course yes. If I'm shooting on my own, and you're all getting ready in the same venue, villa or hotel, I'll try to do my best to cover booth of you.

WHEN ARE WE GOING TO DO PORTRAITS?

Usually during the very best quality time which is one or two hours before the sunset and/or in the middle of the golden hours (immediately time before sunset) but this depends also on your schedule, needs and desires. I adapt my approach so we'll have anywhere between 30-60 minutes for portraits.

WILL YOU SHOOT DETAILS?

Absolutely. This is one of the first things I'll concentrate on when I arrive - dress, rings, shoes, cards and any special details you want documented. I like to get these done first, so that I can then concentrate on documenting the human emotions and connections for the rest of the day.

HOW MANY PICTURES DO WE GET?

The number of photographs taken depends on many things like the number of guests, hours of coverage, types of events. My bare minimum is 200 images for three hours day but it can be much more. You will receive high resolution image files via a password protected online gallery from which are then available for download and printing.

WHO EDITS THE IMAGES? ALL OF THEM? HOW?

I strongly believe that editing is a fundamental part my photography process, and therefore I need to personally hand edit every single image delivered without batching in bulk groups or mass producing the results to ensure they hold up to my vision and style.

DO YOU MAKE BLACK AND WHITE IMAGES?

I basically deliver two major photo galleries. The first with all the photo in color version and the second one with the same images of the first gallery edited in black and white version.

HOW DO WE MAKE A BOOK/ALBUM?

Once you're ready to get started you can simply create a "favourites" collection from your online gallery, and I'll use these images to start the preliminary design. Then I show you the draft, and you give me your thoughts, and we go back and forth until you are happy and ready to go to print. The whole process usually takes about a 3 months from start to finish. When the products will arrive at my studio from the GRAPHISTUDIO™ lab I'll double check if everything is ok and I'll ship the book out to you.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET OUR PRODUCTS AND IMAGES?

Your images will be ready 12 weeks after the wedding, available for download on your password-protected online gallery. You will be able to download both high and low resolution files, and be able to order professional prints directly from the gallery. Upon final approval of album designs most albums are ready for delivery within four weeks.

WHAT ARE YOUR ALBUMS LIKE?

I use only WEDDING BOOK™ and YOUNG BOOK™ album products from GRAPHISTUDIO™. They offer a variety of custom options and high end materials, and every product they make is completely handmade in Italy. There's a lot of attention to detail that goes into designing and building a wedding album.
