destination wedding photographer
We’re Simona and Angelo, destination wedding photographers, Italy based, worldwide available.
We started ZONZO ten years ago with the aim to travel around the world, discover new places, meet cool people and understand facts around us.
Photography is what we chose to pursue our goal. The more miles we leave back, the richer we turn.
You will soon discover that we are great talkers, luckily photos speak for us in a much more direct way, but if you are interested in finding out more about us and our photography you are in the right place
What wedding photography means for us.
We love thinking about our job as a journey into contemporary people’s lives. Human beings, with their different ways to get through life, are what makes us curious.
Weddings are extraordinary occasions to deepen our research, a path we can’t walk without a fundamental ingredient: empathy. How discreet and invisible a photographer can be, he or she will be there throughout the whole wedding.
That’s why we really try to figure out what people’s around us feel and put ourselves into their shoes. It’s how we manage to create a positive connection, so that everyone can feel at ease.
To us, being destination wedding photographers is a longterm commitment. Once over, we would love to have explored happiness and love from different points of view.
Eager by nature, if something is missing, I make it up.
Beauty is everywhere and my quest is to find it by hook or by crook.
I love tech but I don’t talk on the phone.
I’m a food lover, bread baker and sooner or later you will all come to eat at my place.
I’m the one who always read instructions manuals while Simona has already dismantled everything.
I’ve been a web developer for long time but I always dreamed to grow pulses.
I’m a lucky boy.
I love my job, I live in a beautiful place and when I want to relax I spend a few hours in our orchard.
3 things you don’t know about us:
Our roots, our influences
We live in a small village in the south-centre of Italy, where we also run a farm. Therefore, the nature – with all its elements – is our main context, it’s what inspire us from an aesthetic and human point of view. Where we grew up, celebrations are a very peculiar and important moment both for families and for the whole community.
We got to know that parties’ ingredients are emotions, happiness, time spent with people you love and the very right place to dig old traditions out altogether. And that’s what we look for while shooting destination weddings, keeping in mind that we’re attending and witnessing an unmatched moment in people’s life. We love authentic things and we always look for them throughout all our photography. Even an ordinary moment or gesture, if frankly true, catches our attention.
Shooting to travel,
traveling to shoot
The perks of being a destination wedding photographer
Since we started ZONZO we choose to refer to ‘Travel’ as a metaphor and goal in life. Working as wedding destination photographers in Italy we soon realised that ‘Destination Weddings’ encompass both travel and life at its best.
Hence, we love to see ourselves like travel companions to the couples that decide to share the beginning/part of their journey with us.
We would love to make all our experience of wedding photographers available, both in Italy or any other part of the world with empathy, lightness and curiosity.
Photography is an important part of each of our journeys and, whatever the destination, we seek the opportunity to photograph a couple, a wedding or organize a portrait session, because it gives us the chance to better get in touch with the places we are visiting.
