I’m wearing my party pants (aka PJ’s) because Nikon launched the Nikon European Wedding Collective today! This is exciting. It makes me happy to see the wedding photography industry included more and more in photography conversations because Wedding photography has changed so much over the years and it is a true art form and very hard work.
As a wedding photographer you have to master all kinds of light situations AND all kinds of social situations, handling not only your craft, but people well. It’s a lot of balls to keep in the air!
So when Nikon asked me to represent Italy in the European Wedding Collective, I was all like: WHERE DO I SIGN?
It’s a big honour and privilege and I am so humbled to be included in this amazing group.
This will involve lots of fun collaborations in the future, which I am so so excited about and thankful for! It’s a bit crazy to see my picture on the front of the Wedding Collective page!
You can check out this new Nikon venture here, showing different wedding traditions from all over the world – and hopefully you’ll leave inspired by the talent that’s featured!
More to come soon! Excitement levels are high!
To capture two common Italian wedding traditions I worked with Elena, who runs the Wedding blog WeddingWonderland – since it’s all in Italian, I’ll tell you what the traditions pictured are:
- the Groom traditionally hands over the bouquet to the Bride either during their first look or in front of the church (fun huh?!)
- For the really superstitious ones: Italians believe it’s bad luck if the Bride sees herself in the mirror fully ready, so if she looks into a mirror, she has to take something off (I never said Italians are normal!)
