Simone Miglietta, Wedding Photographer in Tuscany

Hi, I’m Simone!
Let me tell you something about me…
I was born in 1983 in Fiesole, a pearl of a city in the earlier hills of Florence.
I grew up in Florence and I have always been fascinated by the beauty that surrounds me: from the countryside that looks like a painting to the actual paintings in the many Florentine museums and all the art one can breathe walking around the streets of the city center. I think all these influences have brought me to desire to express myself. Ever since I was a child, I have painted, played music, and then, when I was a teen, I found my medium in photography.

Me and Katherine

Now, I live with my wife Katherine and my little dog Greta in Montevarchi, a small town between Florence and Arezzo in Tuscany.

I believe in Love and I got married when I was pretty young, in 2006… Now, after many years of marriage, I always say I would do it all again in the same way.

What I love doing the most is listening to a lot of different genres of music – but my favorite will always be 80s and 90s rock music! – spending time and having dinner with my closest friends, working out, and cuddling my dog.

Those who love me call me a dreamer, a joker, an incurable optimist and a hopeless romantic. But most of all, a big talker. Because you know, I talk.. a lot!

Yes.. I love Spiderman!

How did I become a wedding photographer in Tuscany?

Photography entered by force in my life back in 2005 when I found an old Nikon film camera that was about to be thrown away at Katherine’s mom’s.
I decided to keep it and I started developing my photography skills. I wanted to figure that out, I experimented with it a lot (and threw away so many film rolls!).
Then, as digital photography arrived, I started attending several courses and workshops of photography and photo retouching.

The more I photographed, the more I was starting to realize that photography is a very powerful tool, and as such, it must be taken seriously. Photography is a way to communicate something, to tell a story, to give identity, to express oneself.
Therefore, I decided to dive deeper into it, studying from the greatest Masters of Photography and trying to understand the way they use their photography to send a message to the world.

At a certain point in my life, back in 2016, the firm I used to work in as an accountant had to close and I found myself looking for a new job. I always thought that one shouldn’t miss a train when he spots one, and that certain opportunities must be caught when you have the chance. And that was my chance, to turn my passion for photography into a profession.

I decided to get involved and I took the chance to become a wedding photographer in Tuscany.

Starting this new job as a destination wedding photographer wasn’t easy: such a work is harder than it looks, and it’s full of sacrifices, time spent studying and experimenting, and it requires a lot of emotional strength.

After having spent two years paying my dues around several photography studios in Florence, I opened my own business as a wedding and family photographer in Tuscany. The largest part of my work is photographing weddings and family portraits because what I love the most about photography is telling stories, narrating people’s lives, showing you who you are through my images and giving you your identity back.

Photography, to me, is an exchange between you and me.

Me as Wedding Photographer in Tuscany

Every wedding is a unique, extraordinary story. A story that does not involve the spouses only, but also their families and their friends. Being allowed into your home, into your intimacy, is a unique privilege. I will never cease to thank you for that: giving me the opportunity to tell the story of such a unique day is a great honor and responsibility.

As a professional photographer, I want to be serious and competent and have a deep knowledge of what I am doing, and the risks involved in shooting a photograph. To immortalize a moment destined to happen once in a lifetime is a serious responsibility!

What is my goal?

Just me

It’s to tell the story of your most special day going beyond the simple documentation of the event. I want to transmit the emotions you feel, showing the empathy between you and every guest, making you all feel at ease so that you can perceive me as a friend. This way, I will be able to capture images that will excite you and bring back memories even years after the event, and give a memory of your identity to your future children.

And I want to do all of this with a splash of creativity, fantasy, and laughter because love is joy and fun as well!
