A destination wedding photographer on Lake Iseo

Not many of you knows that I was born and raised for a third of my life in the lake region, in Iseo. Here I met one of the most amazing wedding photographer Federico Sbardolini.

Federico Sbardolini

He is not just an excellent wedding  photographer, he is a great and smart person. I love how he works, not only with the camera but also with the people, the couples and of course with my brides.

 Federico, how are you today?

Well, more than fine. The sun is shining even if we are in January and we can enjoy the warm temperature more than what was expected. I want to ask you just a few little questions to share with my readers.

How did you get in love with photography?

I was basically born inside the dark room. My grandfather and my father were photographers both. The dark room was literally my playground. Although I did not fall in love with photography since my post degree in Arts. This allowed me to understand the real beauty of photography from different points of view.

Is photography your main business and how many weddings do you do per year?

Yes! We manage only one wedding per day and I personally supervise it.  We decided to work less but better. We do not accept more than 20 weddings per year. We built our wedding service around the people so we want to focus on small number of events.Do you site inspect before the event?

Yes, when  because I believe is very important. I work with a reportage style , knowing the venue is important, but I’m always ready to the unexpected! Thanks to my experience I’m able to deal even with the last minutes changes.

What is your style and What is your favourite photography accessory, other than your camera?

I like to experiment, so I really like to combine art with photography. I started with the film, the real one.  Nowdays everyone with cameras can make good picture, it is the style that makes the difference.

 Do you use photoshop? And how much is important for the final result?

Yes, in order to provide a complete service for the photo album or to cancel a spot on a nervous bride. But I Would discourage the use of it if it is not necessary.  I shot with final setting, so the most of the times my pics are more or less ready to be printed. I pay lot of attention to the final print too. I use a wide selection of printing paper. Each with a different style, as the wedding that I realise.
