If you are planning a Wedding in Italy, you will have some questions about the photographers. Here are some of the most frequent questions.
Who are we?
We are a team of professional photographers, but even before that, we are a couple. We are close-knit, competitive with each other, and pay attention to all the details. We put our hearts before every shot to ensure the highest quality a wedding requires and to best capture those moments that will remind you and your children how unique your wedding was.

What makes us different?
Months and months of preparation for one of the most important days of your life deserve to be told by a photographer that can enhance the details, emotions, looks, and atmosphere. We know how difficult it is to have a camera pointed at you. Therefore, we tell the story of your wedding with a natural, intimate, and spontaneous style. We will not take posed pictures and allow ourselves to be guided by the event and the flow of emotions, trying to stay in the background but simultaneously be part of the party. We will guide you sometimes, but only to create a particular result or enhance a specific light or place. We won’t be “those guys with the camera in our hands.” We will be shoulders you can count, friends.
Do you photograph only in Amalfi?
Photography is an integral part of our lives and our human journey. It makes us travel a lot and rest little, bringing us a new story each day. We have two studios, one in South Italy and one in the North (Milano). We have weddings all over Italy, but we love to travel. In 2022 we photographed weddings in Switzerland. Piedmont, Trentino, Emilia Romagna, Tuscany, Umbria, Liguria and Campania. And in 2023, our tour will become even more fun! More than photographers, we are two nomads!
Is it possible to have a pre wedding shooting?
Absolutely. What was called a pre-wedding a few years ago is now an “Engagement Shooting“. We love it because it is an opportunity to capture moments together outside the ceremony, where complicity blends into the everyday. Above all, we are free to choose a particular place, whether in the city, at the park, at the beach, or in the mountains.
What is your style?
Every wedding photographer has their own personal style and way of rendering it through images. Ours is a Wedding Reportage. Reportage, just like the ones we do when, as soon as the wedding season ends, we fly to India or Thailand! We tell all sides of your day in a natural and non-invasive way.
We tell the story of your day, trying to capture the emotions, natural moments, fleeting moments, expressions, smiles, and tears of you newlyweds and your guests in a discreet but participatory way; we get excited and become part of the celebration, but at the same time we remain invisible and omnipresent so as not to miss a single moment.
We don’t like posed photos but are ready to guide you (just a little) to enhance a particular place or light. We do not like prepackaged work and approach each photo shoot as the unique event it represents. We know that choosing a wedding photographer is almost more difficult than choosing your soul mate, so if you believe that experience and passion are the basis for something that lasts – and after all, you should if you’re getting married! – then trust us and our pictures.
Will you both photograph our wedding?
It depends on the package and the type of wedding. Usually, for weddings with a high number of guests, I always recommend adding a “second photographer” option. This allows us to not miss a single detail or moment, to be in different places simultaneously, and to catch the same scene from different angles. Imagine the exchange of the rings! Of course, that is the precise moment that will have to be photographed, and one photographer will necessarily have to capture that moment. In two, however, we could simultaneously catch the excited looks of your soul mate and that tear streaming down your parent’s face.
When to book?
Earlier is always better. You have a better chance of finding us free by booking well in advance.
What about wedding albums?
At Giuliano Lo Re Photography, we only use wedding albums from Italian artisan companies to offer the highest quality and original products 100% MADE IN ITALY. We have several customization options, but what matters most in albums, as well as in our photographs, is naturalness. We have chosen to offer you albums made of delicate and elegant materials, such as linen, fabric, and wood.
