Italian wedding photography information
Whether you are planning a wedding in Rome, Umbria or Tuscany we can tailor our services to suit your requirements, you can choose just a wedding photography option and receive all the original images and copyright or you can have a unique wedding album or wedding book created in a range of different styles, it is up to you.
Since 1999 we have been photographing weddings, in Ireland and now Italy we have learned that every wedding is unique and every bride wants her day just perfect, just the way she dreamed it would be. That is why we tailor our services personally around Your Wedding day and Your wishes.
Siobhan’s candid and relaxed style of wedding photography will capture the typically unnoticed moments that highlight your wedding and show the emotions of this memorable day. Siobhan’s photography style is photojournalist, natural rather than the staged set-up shots of old, she works quickly and unobtrusively.
To secure your date we ask for a Non-Refundable deposit, this will range from €50.00 to €200.00, depending on the photography option you choose, the balance is due on or before the day paid in full.

Your Wedding Photography
A basic outline of what we normally do on your wedding day.
We like to start coverage at the brides hotel/apartment to capture those moments of madness before she leaves for the ceremony. Candid black and white shots of the mayhem that is most bride’s wedding morning. Next the ceremony where we get reportage / casual shots of your guests mingling before the bride arrives. We shoot the grooms-men at the church before the bride arrives, then the ceremony.
After the ceremony (depending of your plans of course) we like to sneak the bride, groom and bridal party off to a place usually en-route to the reception for some private shots, (we will keep you no longer than half an hour). We can take the wedding party shots at the church or reception, Siobhan will finish up just before you and your guests sit down to your meal unless you choose the full day option, this is only an outline depending on the option time.
As mentioned before, we do what YOU want. We do not like setting shots up, apart from the family and portrait shots which require a bit of organising. We do not take hours getting the ‘Perfect Shot’. We work quickly and casually, after all its Your wedding day and we believe that most couples these days do not want to spend it posing for hours, missing their guests and getting board. Candid relaxed shots of your day are far more interesting than those staged, cardboard shots of tradition, and we believe they tell more of a story.
You will receive ALL Original Images that we shoot on your day in high-resolution files on USB drive. You can then have them printed as you like when you get home. We can also supply you with a full professional wedding album or Wedding Book. We offer digital montage images that we create in-house and are unique to each wedding.
A guide to planning your wedding photography
It is very important that you are clear about what specific photos you will want on the day. A lot of people are happy to have their immediate families and parents, however as every bride has different plans you may want extra photos of certain friends or relatives. If this is the case, to avoid disappointment after the wedding I must get a list from you. I will be meeting people for the first time and I will need help rounding people up. This is normally the job of the best man and it is also advisable to give a list to him or a bridesmaid. I am more than happy to photograph everything you want on the day but I cannot be held responsible for missed photos if I haven’t been asked to shoot them.
Below is a general guideline of photos to expect, again you might be happy to have less of the images listed below which is absolutely fine as long as I know this beforehand.
- Preparation shots
- Bride getting ready with girls
- Bride alone
- Bride and bridesmaids
- Bride with parents
- Walking or arriving at the church
- The wedding vows and signing of the register
- Outside the church guests and newly-weds congratulations and confetti
- Bride and Groom with parents of the bride
- Bride and groom with parents of the groom
- Bride and groom with brides family
- Bride and groom with grooms family
- Bridal party together
- Groom and grooms men
- Bride and bridesmaids
*If the boys are getting ready at the same venue then I will also include the boys here, otherwise I will get the boys at the church waiting.
Other combinations from here include just the bridal party and bride and groom alone.
I also include shots of the table set ups, menu cards and guests mingling.
Once again if there are other shots you would like on the day then please just ask and make a list.
