About us

Gianfranco Catullo

I was born in Matera, Southern Italy, in 1979. My first film camera was my father's Voigtlander VSL1. After the college I moved to Rome, where I live now, graduating in Theories of Communication from Roma Tre University. I worked as a photographer for the main italian festivals writing reviews and articles as a freelance photojournalist. During an edition of the Ravenna Festival I met Andrea who became my associate and above all a great and trusted friend. I believe that a marriage is a very complex event and like a concert It must be properly documented. We work in perfect synergy thanks to our previous experience in critical shooting situations. So we re-discovered wedding photography.

Andrea Gherardi

Sondrio, 1983. Starting as a photographer in tourist resorts I worked as an assistant in creation of advertising catalogs. I approached the world of theater photography and I graduated at La Scala Opera House Academy in Milan. I grew up professionally in theaters, concerts and events of all kind. Then decided to become a wedding photographer reaching the goal of creating a new language through the method of stage photography. I think that marriage is not static or uniform because all moving around a single center: the bride and the groom. They are the beating heart of the "scene machine" during one of the most important days. Photographing in a theater, in total silence, without being seen, trying to unravel the plot in a single frame. So, in the same way, a wedding is not to be simply told but investigated, understood and interpreted trying to bring to light the essence of every shoot.

Knowing how to do a visual study
Leonardo Brogioni, in a famous article published on "Progresso Fotografico" writes: 'Being a photojournalist is to be a journalist and a photographer. It means being able to conduct an investigation, do the work of information and documentation, is to know and be able to use the language of photography, that is, all the elements, tools and modes of communication through photography. The work of photojournalist does not end at the end of the photo shoot, but continues during the editing to get an organic tale.'
