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!

Francesco, your work speaks for itself. I cannot stop looking at our beautiful photos and reliving this amazing day. You're energetic and so much fun to work with you! 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!

Dear Francesco, we're just overwhelmed. These are such beautiful images, we can't stop looking at them. We cannot compliment you or ever thank you enough, just wonderful wonderful images, that have captured such a memorable day so beautifully. Choosing a wedding photographer is a very important decision made all the more difficult by the geographical considerations. We wanted an artist whose images where orginal, paintery, beautiful, intimate.. the list went on, but when we came across your website we were conviced we had found the right man. And wow, did you not let us down. I want you to post this on your website for any couples who find themselves in a similar position as we did. We would never hesitate in recommending you to anyone, and everyone should check out the images on your blog. On the day itself, we found you to be so friendly, so encouraging, so relaxing to people who don't normally like having their photograph taken. All the guests commented how wonderful you were. And the results reflect that. You've captured some of the most intimate, beautiful moments of our day in a wonderfully emotive style. We will cherish these images forever. From both us, you have our eternal gratitude. Bellissimo! Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Erin & Trevor
Dear Francesco, when Erin and I decided to get married in Italy we really had no idea what we were getting ourselves into. Being from Canada and planning a wedding in Tuscany was no small feat. We had much help from our venue in sourcing most of our vendors, but decided to find our own photographer as we had a very specific feel that we wanted from our pictures. Once we came across your website, we knew these were the types of pictures that we would want as memories. I was reading some words posted by another happy couple that spoke about you climbing a tree to get the perfect shot and I knew this was the type of person that I wanted to shoot our day; someone that would go above and beyond. Speaking to you several times on Skype I thought we totally hit it off! We had many laughs and become instant friends. On the day of the wedding we were not disappointed! You and your team took no time to become a part of the group and seemed to be having as much fun as we were. We had a photographer in a tree capturing our ceremony from 20 feet above, which all the guests are still talking about! The pictures that you took and provided us were nothing short of perfect and checking out your blog is evidence in itself. We have shared our pictures with many of the guests already and each of them make the comment “Wow, he really captured the feeling of the day”. Not only are the pictures gorgeous, but they capture the moments and show how much fun we were having. The only complaint we have is that there are too many fantastic pictures and now we have to make a decision on which pictures to get blown up or become that couple that has every wall of their home covered in their wedding pictures! We know that when people look at your portfolio they see the passion that you put into your work and how perfectly you capture the moments and emotions of the day. What is missing from the pictures is how enjoyable it was to have you as part of the day. You and your team were not our photographers that day, but our guests, and our friends who happened to have really expensive cameras! Thank you Francesco, from the bottom of our hearth.
Jenny & Jake
Dear Francesco, Jake and I just wanted to tell you how appreciative and thrilled we are with all of our photos that you took in Florence! We are really amazed at how well you used the camera angle, blending us with the beautiful scenery of Florence, making our photos so unique and beautiful. These are something that we cannot easily expect in Korea, where people usually have their photos taken in a studio, taking similar poses. These photos bring us back all the special memories of the day, including our emotions, the weather and temperature changes, etc. I know that you are also not so used working with Asian clients and it might have been challenging for you to work with us, but still you managed to produce marvelous photos! They will be a long-lasting gift for us.
