          I’m inspired by people. Tell me your story.

           

          I grew up in Rome, Italy, and got a bachelor degree in Philosophy in Pisa and Paris. Then I went to study screenwriting in Florence and decided to take the route of photojournalism. My interest in history and anthropology took me to South East Asia for the best part of seven years, which culminated with Amnesty International Italy publishing my pictures of the Burmese civil war. To sponsor my work in Asia, during the monsoon season I would travel back to Europe to work as a tour guide all over the continent. My vision and work have been influenced by all the people I came in contact with and by the aesthetic of all the countries I was lucky to live and work in.

          Then, almost all of a sudden, I relocated to Chicago and I started documenting weddings. Much has changed from the time I was shooting BW film and spending hours in the darkroom. But something stayed the same: my passion for portraits and for writing stories through images. Even now that I work primarily with digital, I always stop and think before pressing the shutter. Because I look for images that can tell your story. If you are looking for a Chicago wedding photographer and you are looking for an authentic approach, I would like to get in touch with you.

          Lorenzo photographed our wedding day on June 24, 2017. He is wonderful to work with and made our wedding day very special. The photographer you choose for your wedding day is very important. They are the ones that are going to photograph those key moments that you have carefully planned and those amazing memories that you will want to look back on for years to come. Lorenzo's photography style is photo journalism. He will make sure that you get those formal and classic bride/groom portraits as well as family photos. He also encourages you to have fun on your wedding day and to no be afraid to be spontaneous with picture taking. Lorenzo wants you to live in the moment and that shows through in his photography. Those candid "not trying" photos are some of my favorites that I have displayed on a gallery wall in our new home! I also cherish the formal photographs that he took at the church that we were married in. Lorenzo is professional, dependable and puts his heart into his work. I would highly recommend Lorenzo to be your wedding photographer. Thank you Lorenzo for capturing the heart and soul of our wedding day!

          We found Lorenzo on Yelp and hired him for our engagement photos (which we did two weeks ago) and we'll have him shoot our wedding in July too. We met Lorenzo in person for the first time at our engagement photo session and we had SUCH a great time with him. He made us comfortable immediately, was professional, personable, and very nice. We just got our photos back (only took him a few days!) and we LOVE the photos. We could not be happier with how they turned out. The feel like US, and we love that. He captured true, sweet moments between us and he was great at pulling us out of our shells and saying things to help us stay in the moment and be genuine with one another.

          Couldn't recommend him more. He is affordable, professional, and very talented. We can't wait until he photographs our wedding day!!

          We had such a great experience working with Lorenzo! He shot our engagement photos in Lincoln Park as well as our wedding. Lorenzo was extremely easy to work with and responsive during the wedding planning process. We had originally planned to take pictures outside for our wedding but since it ending up raining he was helpful in rerouting our whole wedding party to get pictures despite the rain. Before our reception, the rain stopped and we were able to get some gorgeous photos with a rainbow outside our venue!

          I've had the wonderful experience of working with Lorenzo for all three of my wedding events across a span of 2 years. He has provided nothing but spectacular services. He is very patient and takes his clients opinions very seriously. Lorenzo is very talented and has great experience working with different cultures and capturing their different styles of weddings. Not only is he very knowledgeable in his field, but he is also a kind and hardworking professional to work with. Everytime I look at my photos, I can't stop smiling at how beautifully Lorenzo captured my Indian wedding. I would highly recommend him to capture your special moments!
