We are Graziano & Melinda

A passionate Italian-Hungarian couple and International Award winning wedding Photojournalists based in Italy by Lake Iseo and in Budapest, Hungary and serving also in Austria, but we are available to discuss a work anywhere you need.

How we make your day special

Our wedding photography style is mainly Photojournalism,

but we also like to do creative portraiture. We aim to capture the atmosphere and the true emotions, focusing on telling your story, with special care on the real moments. Yes, that's what we love, it doesn't matter if you’re getting married, if it's a family on holiday or a business person looking for a new portrait. Whatever is the situation, we’re dedicated to giving you images that celebrate your life and that can be an inspiration for your best friends.

Another important motto in our philosophy of work at weddings is "it's your day, not ours", we give maximum importance to the fact that it's your most important day, we want you to be yourselves, without being told what to do. That's why we don't interfere in what's happening during the day (except when we set some portraits, obviously). Standing aside will allow us to capture the most natural gestures and the most spontaneous emotions and feelings.

So whether you book us for your wedding, but also for a portrait session, for a joyful photo session with your family, or for a so-called lifestyle photography service, we will make sure that you will have amazing and emotional real memories to look back on.

Photography is our passion - and we believe to show that through our pictures.

AWARD WINNING PHOTOGRAPHY

In the last years we collected a good amount of International Awards in some of the most world-renowned institutions such as Fearless Photographers, Mywed, ISPWP, This Is Reportage, WPJA, WPS, etc., We are not used to "admire ourselves in the mirror" but to watch all together the International Awards we achieved in the last few years makes us very proud, and with this we also want to thank all the amazing couples that chose us as their photographers, because they are giving us the freedom to surprise them with our experiments and ideas. It's not about the Awards, but as we said we are always looking to try something different and to push the boundaries of our photography, and we believe that the best way to do it is to measure ourselves with the best photographers in the field, moreover these established associations are an endless source of inspiration to us! We are proud of them because they are the result of a lot of hard work 🙂
