Hi THERE … I’m FRANCESCO!
I’m an Italian Wedding Photographer in Tuscany, based in Florence but operating as Destination Wedding Photographer in Italy and abroad (like Hawaii!). I’m a daydreamer and a life-enjoyer. I’ve a friendly and relaxed approach that I like to mix with a personal and eye-catching photojournalistic style. This is the way I prefer to work with you, capturing your love and your true emotions. You’ve to consider me like a friend and I’ll use my skills, my passion and my vision to create for you unique and special memories. I really enjoy also working as Lifestyle and Portrait Photographer for Engagements or Candid Family Sessions, or for your Intimate Elopement in Tuscany and Italy. So, if you happen to be here searching for something different enjoy exploring my works! Then if you feel my style as your own drop me a line, and I’ll be there with you to make something special.

We just got to our hotel near the airport in Milan and it's bittersweet to leave Italy, but we know it's not goodbye. Farhad and I just looked at the picture together and we both had tears in our eyes. We're in LOVE with our pictures, you are amazing!!!! We can't thank you enough for capturing such beautiful moments in such a magical city! Thank you again and we look forward to hopefully creating more magical memories! Cheers,

Hi Francesco, Jon and I would like to say the biggest thank you for your work. It was the most amazing day of our lives and we couldn't imagine having a better photographer to capture those memories. You put all our guests at ease - even the mother of the bride. I think you have a friend for life in our flower girl. The words ‘thank you’ simply don’t express how grateful we are for incredibly beautiful images you took of the most magical day of our lives. We searched, across the globe, for a wedding photographer who would truly capture the love, intimacy and happiness of our day with an imaginative and unique flair. This led us to you. From the beginning you was so friendly, helpful and supportive, you made us laugh, smile and relax, capturing our memories in such wonderful photographs which we will treasure forever. I've struggled to put into words the incredible feeling we had when we relived our wedding day through your eyes. Just ‘wow’! Once again, thank you so much for everything and I hope you enjoyed the day as much as we did.
Lots of love, Rachel & Jon

Francesco is a crazy, brilliant, fun! It all started a couple of weeks before our wedding... Yes, that's right, just a couple of weeks earlier! We were not convinced with the photography services provided by the local Maui company we were in touch with, so we thought we'd try to show off the Italians in us and bring in one of our own. Except it was really late! We started looking at websites and found that Francesco had the exact style we were looking for: very natural, spontaneous, and full of good emotions! He could really tell a story through photographs, capture the moment and connect it to the next one, all in a flow of emotions that you can relive over and over again. We still cannot believe we were so lucky to find out that Francesco was not busy with other commitments that week. And that he was crazy enough to jump on a plane with two-week's notice to reach, quite literally, the other side of the world to spend 3 days with us in Maui! More than 2 days of traveling, 12-hour time difference, 3 days of work, something like 7 hours of sleep total... We told you: CRAZY! Yet, when we spoke on Skype for the first time, we could tell that he was ready to go - his only concern was family. It's funny that, as we write this little thank you note, we read a comment on his Facebook profile that the best thing about his vacations is always his kids. Do you see what kind of person we're talking about? Francesco is in love with his life, and in love with love, and that transfers to his photographs of course. He lives with his heart open and you can see that clearly admiring any of the stories he told with his photographs. We could not find a better fit for us, Francesco was quite simply the best choice we could make! We are so happy with his work! And we were amazed by how much he liked what he was doing. He even put his camera at risk when he jumped in the water with us the day after the wedding to shoot the trashing of our dresses in the breathtaking waters of Maui! We could tell he was sharing our excitement the day of our wedding, the day before and the day after. He truly wanted us to have the best days of our lives, which we did, and he certainly contributed to it significantly! He was always saying: just live and enjoy the moment, photographs will automatically come out beautiful! Francesco was being too modest of course, photos don't just come out well by themselves, his extraordinary ability to capture the moment is fundamental. But there is some truth in what he was saying: if you let go to your emotions and enjoy the experience, Francesco's photographs will simply be beautiful! If you are someone who fully lives and enjoys the moment, he is your guy! We could not be happier with the undeletable memories Francesco created for us, so thank you so much again Fra, or as they say it in the islands, shaka mahalo!

You made us feel relaxed, confident, and above all, made taking photos such a fun part of our perfect day! Thanks for sending our final photos in the promised period of time; long before the excitement of the wedding was gone (which can't be said for all photographers!). You have a passion for photography and weddings and people can't go wrong choosing you to capture their special day! Thank you so mutch Francesco for capturing it pefectly!
