“We know every couple is unique, so it’s our job to capture your wedding day exactly the way you want…”
Getting to know you is a really important part of our job. Your wedding is unique, so you want your photos to reflect the memories of your day exactly the way you want. We specialise in emotive portraiture and photojournalistic-style photography, but if you’d like something different, that’s not a problem – we can also integrate classic, formal shots.
Capturing intimate, emotional moments is something Estella Lanti Photography are really passionate about. We love taking photographs that really bring your wedding to life, so every time you look through them, they instantly transport you back to your special day.
Our style of photography is naturalistic, anticipating moments and observing not directing the shots. We take natural, timeless images that capture your day – and we always merge into the background. Plus, it goes without saying you get our sole attention for the duration of your day and during the post edit. If privacy is particularly important to you, we guarantee you the utmost discretion. We know how to cope with the demands and stresses of exclusive weddings.
Estella Lanti Photography is also a proud member of “Best of Wedding Photography”, the premier invitation-only association for the world’s top wedding photographers.
Although having a destination wedding can be daunting, working with the best team truly makes a big difference. Not for one second have I regretted my decision to have Estella as our photographer. She and her entire team were very understanding of exactly what we were looking for and truly respected our vision for the day and especially, our privacy. She was always willing to work with our individual concerns and artistically captured all our important moments.
When we first received our pictures, we were blown away by how absolutely beautiful they were and how Estella managed to capture such small details that I myself did not notice on the day. Looking through the pictures was like reliving our wedding day but through various perspectives. Estella works with an exceptional team of photographers and videographers which ensures that every moment and detail is captured.
My advice to any bride-to-be is to really take the time in selecting the perfect photographer who would not only work with your vision and needs but also have such great talent that you can feel confident that they will give you beautiful pictures you can truly cherish for life.
I am extremely grateful that I was able to have Estella and her team as my photographers; their passion for photography, and artistic talent shines through every picture and their kindness and character make them true professionals and a joy to have on at our wedding”
Villa del Balbianello (Private Wedding)
“I first met Estella via email while planning our wedding in Rome from our home in Ontario, Canada. Estella was prompt, warm, and comprehensive in her response and so I knew after this first contact that she would be the perfect photographer for our big day.
Estella maintained constant communication with me while we planned timing and location details, and was willing to accommodate me to ensure we would have a no-stress day! On the day of the wedding, Estella comforted myself and my nervous hubby-to-be, gracefully obliged our family members, and patiently travelled with us from historic site to historic site (more than we expected), all while capturing beautiful memories of our special day!
We received more than we expected, and would recommend Estella without hesitation. Thanks again! “

“When we decided to marry in Italy we wanted an Italian photographer. Estella took time to answer all of our questions before we booked and always had time leading up to our wedding to answer any more questions we had. We didn’t meet Estella before our wedding day and were a little nervous about meeting her. We did not need to worry. Estella was fantastic! She made us feel comfortable and at ease and she was full of energy and encouragement when taking our photos.
Estella was a fantastic part of our day, we enjoyed her company and felt like we had known her for a long time. She documented the day through the camera perfectly and the results are incredible, we have so many fantastic photographs to treasure. We found it so difficult to choose the photographs for our album as it meant leaving so many incredible pictures out.
All of our family and friends have said how wonderful the photographs are. The photobook that Estella provided is first class, a fantastic souvenir of our wedding day. The photographs we chose with Estella’s help have been laid out to tell the story of our wedding day. The pages in the book are excellent quality and the colours are incredible. The print quality is superb, the colours really leap off the page and the layout brings your photos to life bringing the whole day back to us as if it were yesterday.
Our family & friends told us how wonderful it is when we showed them. We’re so pleased with it, it’s fantastic, better than we expected. We can’t stop looking through it! It’s difficult to say how happy we are. It’s by far the best wedding album we have ever seen and worth every penny. We’re so glad that we added it to our photo package even though we had to sacrifice a few other things from our budget. Treat yourselves, you won’t regret it. We we’re very lucky the day we found you to be our photographer! Thank you so, so much. We would recommend Estella to everyone.”

“Dearest Estella & Luna, thank you so much for making our special day so memorable! It was a wonderful journey together and you were fantastic in understanding the kind of look and feel we wanted to have in our photos! They are absolutely gorgeous yet natural and you were able to show our happiness in our wedding day! And thanks for your kindness and for being so personable and attentive to our needs, wishing you lots of success and the chance of making many other couples as happy as us 🙂 With heartfelt thank you.”

Estella Lanti Photography – Hot Tips
In our long wedding experience we’ve seen so many hairstyles we give small tips for your big day!
Yes, all kinds of hair dos are fine, half-up, updo, braids, simple chignon, the french twist – you name it.
The wisp however, is abolished! Do not allow your hairdresser to let down a large amount of hair that will inevitably end up in front of your eyes!
Besides it’s boring for you to constantly moving it behind your ear, you’ll risk having 60% of the photos with half of your face covered by your hair or with your hand arranging it.
It can be nice for a particular photo, but certainly not for all the photos. You do not have to give up having a little movement, just ask your hairdresser to fix the tuft with hidden bobby pins or precious hair clips, or flowers.
If for your big day you don’t want to put up all your hair, but prefer to keep it loose and maybe have a long extension, we have to warn you. For example if for your wedding you’re planning a boat trip, your hair will most likely get wind blown and look like a bush! Then, looking at the photos, you will regret not to have tied it. Leaving a part the boat trip, this can even happen on a windy or wet day, you could not predict.
If you strongly want to keep your hair down, ask the hairdresser for something you can adapt, as in the picture below. Thanks to some little tricks, you’ll not be forsaking exhibiting your shiny hair!
