Stefanie & Andrew

I had a particular look in mind even before I started photographing Stefanie and Andrew’s wedding. I had seen a particular spot that I’d wanted to use, but I wanted the right sort of day weather wise before I could use it! I’m sure that from Stefanie’s answers below, you’ll get the feeling that they had a heap of fun on their wedding, which is perfect because that’s the thing that I aim for at every wedding…a fun wedding day means lots of smile in the photos and it makes my job of capturing that fun a whole lot easier. I hope you enjoy reading all about Stefanie and Andrew’s special day.

Special thanks to Rob from Living Memories Video for putting up with me dragging him all over Geelong!!

Riccardo

Briefly tell us a bit about your wedding.

It was a beautiful day, perfect weather and everything went according to plan we were married at St Mary’s Basilica in Geelong then reception followed at Luxor in Taylors lakes.. you couldn’t wipe the smiles off our faces all day.. One of the reasons I (Stef) was smiling was cause I knew deep down that I was having my wedding captured by Riccardo and I knew that he would make sure I could relive my wedding day every time I looked at my album…

Why was it important to you to select a professional Photographer for your wedding?

It was important as we wanted to know that every candid moment was photographed with professionalism and encapsulated our love in a unique and special way!

Can you tell us something your guests don’t know about the day?

Our guests didn’t know that we had organized for a big balloon filled with glitter and mini balloons to go off after our surprise bridal party coreographed dance but the button was pushed early for it to explode after our first dance… we thought dry ice and fireworks were enough but then the balloon went off and we knew there was no end wow factor for our bridal party dance… but all was fine no one noticed haha!

How did you select Photography by Riccardo to be your wedding photographer?

Word of mouth and experiencing Riccardo’s professionalism first hand at other weddings, his work blows me away! He’s so much fun

What advice have you got for Brides and Grooms to be?

Photographer and videographer are to be of a very high standard.. you get what you pay for, it doesn’t hurt for them to get along also, if they have worked together before, you will always guarantee that things will run very smoothly and they will get the best result for you!

And finally, tell our readers how you felt when you first saw your wedding photos.

When we first saw our photos, I cried… we were so overwhelmed by the moments captured and the quality!! Riccardo was my dream photographer! He was the first thing I booked for my wedding and I am more than pleased with his extremely exceptional work and such attention to detail… He is also very affordable for what he provides for you…I can’t thank him enough!!! Professionalism A+++

Courtney & Denis

We were fortunate enough to have a beautiful Winters day for Denis and Courtney’s wedding day. I have known Denis’ family for many many years, so it was also good for me to see them all again. What better place in Geelong to get married in that St. Mary’s Basilica. Courtney wore a stunning gown by Raffaele Ciuca of Fitzroy. We were fortunate enough to be able to photograph in Courtney’s old school, Geelong College. The architecture of the building made for a stunning backdrop. We then headed off to the Geelong Waterfront, which has a huge array of different spots to photograph couples. Being that it was a bit chilly, the bridal party stopped in at The Edge for a few drinks. I took advantage of this opportunity to get a nice photo of all the bridal party enjoying themselves. I absolutely love that image, everyone laughing and having fun, the way that all my weddings are designed to be! Finally we headed back to the Croatian Centre for the reception.

Thanks Courtney and Denis for choosing me as your wedding photographer and making me part of your special day.

Riccardo.

Dean & Louise

I love when couples say to me, do what you want to do. In other words, we give you creative freedom. That’s what  Dean and Louise did when they  married at St. Marys Basilica in Geelong. Obviously, having St. Marys as a location was a huge plus as the beautiful architecture of the Basilica made a perfect backdrop for photos of Louise in her beautiful wedding dress from Bridal House.  Having allowed about two hours for their locations photos meant that we were able to try a few different spots. The Geelong Waterfront has literally fifty different locations all within walking distance which any creative wedding photographer will find.  What better way to finish the wedding day than at Capri Receptions. A fun day had by all and some amazing photographs captured. Don’t forget, you can always see more wedding photos on my Facebook page, just click Here.
