Hello! My name is Andrea Matone and I am a lifestyle photographer working out of Rome Italy. I started taking pictures at an early age. Back in the days of film loaded cameras. Taking photos of just about everything that I found to be curious about the world we live in.
After completing a master in photography here in Rome. I turned my attention to photographing people. Specializing in destination weddings and engagement sessions. In the ten + years that followed I development an eye out for what is appealing about photographing people and couples.
I learned Rome well and have scouted the best locations to recreate the most romantic backdrops. Searching for that off the beaten track image which often makes for the most scenic picture. And which makes this city such a unique shooting location.
Knowing the best times to capture the most flattering light. And making an effort in being there at the right time. Where morning sessions and late evenings provide the most soothing light. Into the blue hour, after the sun has gone down, to capture more artistic photos with long shadows and silhouette images.
Post processing is an important part of the creative process. Where I overlook the touch up work to produce enhanced color photography in bright vivid colors. Without making it look too processed. Finding also great insight in fine art black and white photography.
I am inspired by life experiences. Music, literature, people and cinematography. Curiosity driven vision. On a continuous learning process. To produce creative and artistic photos for your engagement or destination wedding in Rome or in Italy.
