It's often orders of magnitude easier to plan an elopement and destination weddings fabulously combine vacation with a wedding. Win-win! If you're looking at an Italian destination wedding (omg YES!), I've got the Italian destination photographer for you. Let me introduce you to our rad partner, the adventuring and super talented Duccio Argentini. We found Duccio in the prime of his photography career with hundreds of successful weddings under his belt, prepared for ALL of your particular destination wedding details. He's been a lifetime photographer and a camera is a permanent extension of his arm. He has an amazing eye for light and color and ROCKS at capturing weddings of all kinds. But the best part of booking Duccio? He's ultra calming, great with those of us new to being in front of the camera (most of us!), and virtually invisible while capturing the day, meaning you get the most sincere candids and emotions. I'm going to be sharing some shots from a gorgeous wedding in Siena, in the Tuscan countryside. The exact location was the river passing under an ancient Roman Bridge called Ponte della Pia. Just wait until you see it… Here's a behind-the-scenes look at the wedding Duccio shot in Tuscany, that's making me wish I was being teleported there right now. I guess this video glimpse will have to do… for now! Other vendors from the wedding: Hair: Sweet Dreams Wedding • Makeup: Claudio Makeup • Wedding Dress: Anna Fucá • Flowers: Iaiaflorevents • Jewels: Gioielli Sponza • Drone work: Michelangelo Masolini Let's hear from Duccio… After 250 weddings (and counting!) you can be sure that I will capture your laugh, your actions, hugs, dances, and any running child I see during the wedding reportage. If you are a little shy and are not used to being photographed, I will make you and your guests feel comfortable. And your children too, if you have them! Tell me about you and what I can do to make your photographic service unforgettable. How do Duccio's clients feel? Booking a destination photographer from afar can be scary, but Duccio has worked with over 250 couples(!) and has TONS of fans. Here are a couple who were MORE than pleased with Duccio's calming presence and amazing talent… We just got our photos in from our Tuscan wedding in September and are beyond happy. Not only did Duccio deliver an amazing amount of pictures, there are so many amazing shots that truly captured the day without being overly artsy.We had a very intimate wedding, only 14 people ended up making it to Tuscany. With such a small group, a photographer can feel intrusive, but not Duccio! He made himself invisible, while the pictures clearly show that he was there. We chose Duccio online, like all our vendors, without having met him ever before the big day. He arrived right along with my stylist. Based on his blogs and Facebook page, we figured he was a great photographer, but also a likeable person, which is very important for someone who is hanging out with you the whole time on such a special day. Choosing Duccio was a guess and a gamble, but we feel like we won the lottery. We couldn’t be happier with our pictures. They will provide happy memories for a lifetime. – Valerie We married in Volterra in August and hired Duccio after he was highly recommended by Francesca at Efffetti Weddings. Neither myself nor my wife like posing for photos and Duccio’s style of photography was perfect for us. He spent his time with us capturing the relaxed, informal vibe of the wedding and the result is a set of photos that we will look at often and treasure forever. Thank you again, Duccio. – Dave You can find even more rave reviews here. Are you ready to explore a destination wedding with Duccio, our resident Italian destination photographer?
