As a wedding photographer, I shoot all weddings myself, and then collaborate with my team of freelance professional photographers when the participation of more photographers is required.
When the shooting is realized by more photographers, the authorial signature is reserved to me, with a homogeneous style continuity with my collaborators’ pictures.
I shoot a picture whenever I feel a particular emotion, trying to catch a moment that flies away, crystallize it and not lose it. To me, as a wedding photographer, this commitment is a mission and to realize this simple but important task I try to know the visual language, and I study all the secrets behind a great photo.
The care in deepening this sensitivity requires a continuous dedication to train the eye and the heart. This commitment is for me daily and constant, in a constant strive to search for my photographic style which identifies me as an artist and storyteller.
Every photographer of my studio represents my professionalism and competence towards my clients.
Alessandro Della Savia
I express my sensitivity and aesthetics through visual arts ever since. After earning my college degree I decided to interpret professional digital photography in the present.
Photography, to me, is an urgency. It is my inner push towards the pursuit a word of value. When I shoot pictures, my tension is addressed to the persons in front of the camera lens. I ask myself: “What are they feeling in that very moment? How can I transfer their interior world into an image?” In the relationship with my clients, what I feel is that we are in this together, that we are sharing a little part in the journey of life, which of I have the honor to be – with my shots – a witness.”
Questions & Answers with the Photographer
Photography is a visual art of extraordinary beauty and sensitivity. One single picture can tell more things than a film or a book. It is a language apt to communicate feelings and sensations. Just like a dancer, a musician or a writer create culture through their works, to me photography is a means through which I express artistically my sensitivity.
A wedding reportage allows the photographer to make the participants’ feelings his own, and that is a big privilege. It is really exciting to be able to use your own sensitivity to obtain pictures that will be forever the visual memory of a special day in people’s lives.
It is very rewarding whenever I manage to transfer into a picture something that -before the shot – was just inside my mind.
Furthermore, my clients’ satisfaction is my own. After a reportage, my wish is that I was indeed able to match my own sensitivity with their expectations. Whenever I was, it is always a significant achievement to me.
Probably it is the very special attention that I dedicate to the feelings of an event’s participants, whatever event it may be.
My aim it to shoot pictures that will be able to reflect immediately my subjects’ emotions, the atmosphere of the ambience and the typical nuances of every situation, trying not to miss any detail.
My favorite shots are the ones that guard memories. Thus, photography becomes the memory and the precious witness of reality.
The secret is elegance and style. I like to be invisible among the guests of a ceremony in order to be able to shoot the most candid shots. To do this, it is necessary to be discreet, kind and technically skilled.
I am always moved by the smiles of the guests and their joy, which make the wedding day an unforgettable celebration. I like being among them with the scope of narrating these emotions. People’s enthusiasm warms my heart.
My first time in the dark room goes back to when I was twelve years old. Since then, I have always used the visual language to express and memorize my experiences.
Today, decades later, my perception of photography and my relationship towards it are still fresh and exciting.
