My name is Gabriele and
I'm a destination wedding photographer from Italy

Something about me and my job

Being a photographer: when a passion becomes a work


Photography is something that runs through my veins and something that has always been present in my life.
In fact, when I was a child, my father and my grandfather, who were really amateur photographers, had a dark room in which they loved to develop their pictures of our family’s moments. I think that somehow they have transferred to me this passion of creating memories through pictures and now, each time that I shoot a wedding or an engagement, I feel that I am helping a couple to remember that day.

The shooting of a wedding celebration


The wedding day might be very stressful for the bride and groom: they have to deal with a lot of things and emotions. I put all my efforts to make you feel comfortable and relaxed throughout the whole day.

My way of shooting is always discrete and never invasive. I love to make people feeling in their element and portrait them in a natural and genuine attitude, leaking the emotions through gestures and glances.

I always have some meetings with the bride and grooms before the photo shooting, because I like to deepen your world and to feel your emotions and desires in order to mold the photo shooting to your request. Every additional information you can share with me is very important for the storytelling of your day.

I really love to know more about the event, the venue, the location, the guests, your eventual requests. I like to know something about your family tree and your friends.

To immortalize the happiest moment of a couple’s life is very important to be at the same wavelength of them, being a part of their environment and share with them the feelings and emotion.

My style: a wedding photojournalist with a modern approach

My focus is to create a unique and sensitive storytelling by pictures, portrait and videos, telling the story of the entire celebration and highlighting the significant and emotional moments.

My style is an hybrid: both modern and classical, I let things happen through the day.

My goal is to tell the uniqueness of those moments through the lens of my camera.

I love shooting with natural light, the most beautiful light in nature. By not using artificial lights allows me to be discreet and somehow “hidden”.

My way of shooting has been influenced by a lot of things: I think it is the result of my personal approach to life, my ability to create empathy with people and my passion for details and nuances.

"Gabriele’s work and personality were above and beyond my expectations. As our wedding photographer, he and his partner made us feel extremely comfortable and provided great direction, while still allowing my groom and I to be ourselves on our big day. His style of photographs are perfectly editorial and could be featured in Vogue magazine. His customer service was exceptional, and Gabriele always responded quickly to any communication. Finally, the presentation of our albums was elegant and thoughtful, with potpourri gracing a wooden box, accompanied by a white glove and eraser accessory kit for the prints. In conclusion, what could have been a very stressful destination wedding experience was made incredibly easy and gorgeously captured by an unparalleled photographer. I would work with him again in a heartbeat!"

"We had Gabriele do a shoot for our wedding and on the day we found him very relaxed which helped us. He was able to direct us well and made us feel comfortable with the shoot. Gabriele was great with the guests and you felt he was just part of the crowd. We are extremely happy with the shots we have seen so far.
They are beautiful. He has captured our day so well. Thank you!"

"My husband and I chose Malagoli as our wedding photographer due to the natural photos he takes. We couldn't have asked for more, he arrived early and took the time to go around and take photographs of the setting. This was particularly important to us due to a dramatic change in weather meaning we had to change our plans and move things inside out of the storm. He was more than accommodating with the change and made sure we got the pictures we wanted, even in the rain. 
The photographs speak for themselves and it truly was the best day!  We can't thank him enough!"

"It was a pleasure working with Gabrielle for our engagement shoot in Positano. He was very professional, took lots of different shots and did not complain about the extreme heat once. We loved him and would recommend to anyone."

"We can say we loved your eye for posing and natural light! It was another way you made us feel comfortable. Nothing felt forced or awkward. Also, we were constantly impressed by your eye for photo backdrops. We are very excited to see these portrayed in the photos."
