My name is Massimo Barbarotto I born in Italy but i'm living in London for many years, my decision to move into Wedding photography was not a conscious one, I was asked by friends to take pictures of their wedding as they didn’t want the typical staged photos that seemed to be the only style on offer.
It was only when editing my first ever wedding photos that the sheer beauty and raw emotion in the pictures really hit home. What swayed my decision to work as a wedding photographer was the reaction from my friends when they saw their day captured and narrated.
Your wedding day may be one of the few times that all your friends and family are gathered together, with my unobtrusive style I get to capture all those natural and unscripted moments that you would otherwise miss. I love that it is my job to capture these moments that you can cherish forever and I count myself as very privileged to have been entrusted with capturing such an important day in the lives of two people.
My other great love is travel so being able to combine my two great passions as I have been lucky to take pictures of weddings all over Europe. The added benefit of photographing weddings is you get to document the many amazing places and unique ways couples come together to celebrate.
“You only need one ray of light to chase all the shadows away”. I love finding the right time, place and moment. I love taking pictures and catching moments. Taking photographs and working as a full time wedding potographer and traveling is just one spectrum of my photography adventure.
It’s not just a job. It’s a true passion. It’s an art. It’s chasing the smiles, the tears, the sadness, the joys. It’s chasing the moment and capturing it. One good photograph can speak a thousand words.
“Sometimes I’m asked what my photography style is. It’s a difficult question. The style of the photos very much depends on the venue, the event style, the client’s requirements really. As a professional photographer, I will attentively hear about yourself, your dreams, what drives and inspires you. If you would like me to shoot your wedding in black and white only, I’ll do that. If you’d like a moody portrait session, being one of the discerning portrait photographers, I’d be happy to create that for you. Have a look for yourself and contact me with any questions you may have. There is surely a few things that are consistent for my art work: natural approach, catching the moment and emotions, using as much natural light as possible. After all, I’m always chasing that ray of light…”
