Welcome to our frequently asked questions page.
1. WHAT IS INDEPENDENT PICTURES?
Independent Pictures is a wedding photography studio based in Italy, made up of wedding photographers and graphic designers.
2. WHAT IS YOUR STYLE?
It is photojournalistic style. We try to be invisible to capture the most important moments spontaneously. This is the only way to grasp real emotions and give back an accurate photographic story about what really happened on such a special day as your wedding. Of course, on request, we would be happy to take some group photos and some styled pictures of newlyweds with a breathtaking Italian background.
3. WHO WILL TAKE THE PHOTOS OF OUR WEDDING?
For sure, one of the four main photographers from our studio (Andrea, Francesco, Riccardo and Luca) will follow your wedding, joined by an other professional photographer from our team.
4. WHY WILL TWO PHOTOGRAPHERS COME TO OUR WEDDING?
Two photographers guarantee a better and more complete photographic story.
During the preparation they can split up and follow the bride and groom separately. During the marriage they can take photos with different perspectives regarding the same situation (arrival at the church/town hall, exchanging rings etc). That means an accurate photographic story full of details.
Another reason to have two photographers on site is to guarantee your photos, in order to avoid technical problems or in case of illness.
If you are going to have an intimate wedding or just an elopement, feel free to ask a quote for a reduced hours and the coverage of the event by one photographer.
5. CAN I CHOOSE, FROM THE FOUR MAIN PHOTOGRAPHERS, WHO WILL COVER OUR WEDDING?
Sure! Take a look at the personal gallery of Andrea, Francesco, Riccardo and Luca
If, for any reason, you have a preference on who you want to follow your wedding let us know and, if the photographer is still available, he will be happy to oblige.

We offer a complete service, it begins during the preparations and ends with dances, max 12 hours.
On request, we can extend our service applying an hourly extra cost.
For services equal/more than 6 hours a meal must be provided to the two photographers. It is not necessary to have the same meal as the guests.
7. WHAT DO YOU OFFER WITH YOUR SERVICE?
