Tuscany Wedding Couple Drone Shoot

Photographed by Fotomagoria

Story

As a destination wedding photographer, I treat the place where I shoot like a separate character in the story. My couples are always in love with their locations and wish to preserve its image with all of the perspective and momentum of the day.

I intertwine their individual story with landscape photos, so when they look at their galleries they really feel as if they are traveling in time and space. The drone has become a very important tool to gain this effect. My couples love the drone photos which have become my trademark.

From a bird’s eye view, a person in the landscape is just a tiny crumb. I alternate images of macrocosm and microcosm.

This photo should show the clash between the elements of nature and two people in love. I show their intimate world in relation to the universe and capture that moment of their beautiful journey together.

They are so small in this photo that we hardly recognize them. But this photo reflects all the power and magnificence of the Tuscan landscape they chose for their adventure with me. This is the photo they would print and cherish on their wall when they leave the Italian fairytale and go back to their reality in America.

Directions are very important in photographing couples from the drone. I have a short time to fly so I need to plan my shot in advance and discuss it well with the couple. Before I fly the drone, I tell them what effect I want to achieve and I try to wake up their imagination so that they understand what they will look like in the photo.

The directions I would give to my couple for the drone photo are very different from the normal close-up photos. And there are also different tips for the still drone photos and video. I do both, so I try to prepare them how to interact in movement with certain rhythm and fluency.

Fotomagoria

Photographer Italy R6 70-200 mm
Ciao! I am Magda. My brand’s name is inspired by the word and feeling of ‘phantasmagoria’. My style is timeless with a mix of photojournalistic and editorial approach. I love all things adventure. Road trips by own camper, adventurous, intimate weddings, horse riding, Mediterranean lifestyle, and multi day mountain hikes. 5 years ago I ventured with my kids to start a new life in a new country, new culture, and first time as a full-time photographer specializing in couples, weddings, and elopements. Since then I have been calling Tuscany our home and traveling worldwide to create magic. I learned photography myself through countless pitfalls. Now I share my knowledge so that you do not have to repeat my mistakes.
