Our last blog concentrated on an amazing venue where you may choose to get married in Italy, today we wish to introduce you to one of our fantastic suppliers who you will have the opportunity of meeting at The Italian Destination Wedding Show on 26th October in London – Sergio De Riccardis, Photographer.
Sergio is an Italian wedding photographer with a very elegant style. He has been working closely with Francesca Negro, co-organiser of the show, on many of the wedding she has organised. Sergio is available to travel everywhere in Italy to capture your wedding day.
Sergio’s company, Zerosettanta, was created from the professional meeting of Sergio De Riccardis with Andrea Ciccarese. Sergio and Andrea reportage style photography is centered on the bride and groom, although they also make sure to capture friends and relatives to give you a memory of the joy and emotions throughout your wedding day.
Sergio was born in Galatina, a lovely small town in Salento, and loved photography from the age of 13, when he learnt to develop and print BN films in a family friend’s darkroom. That wonderful experience was the beginning of a long way into professional photography.
He studied at Modena’s University and moved to Milan where he was a professional interior design photographer working for furniture producers, architects and designers.
In 2005 he moved to Bologna where he was involved in a photography project in cooperative’s buildings. Following this he moved to Lecce in Puglia and began the switch from the industrial photography to reportage, exactly the contrary to most photographers.
His first wedding portfolio of a friend’s wedding was shown in a Wedding Art & Design show.
As a wedding photographer Sergio still has the same approach of the friend’s marriage and likes to give a “wide” vision of the day. He is not interested in artificial images “as in a fashion set “, he prefers his subject to appear natural and he doesn’t like to be a disturbing presence in the wedding day. He likes to use wide-angle lenses to show places and people at the same time, but never forgetting to pay attention to details.
After shooting he use lots of care in choosing files and make a fine post-production. He likes to give to his images the same attention as an industrial image, that is the only way to give to images a “3d prospective “ and the first step for making a fine-art printing.
Sergio and Andrea provide fine-art images, printed in their own studio in Lecce on precious 100% cotton paper. The photographs are provided in bespoke packaging or as a wedding album created with old, hand-made bookbinding techniques.
