QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
Why should I choose le Vélo for my wedding?
These are the values that most characterize us and for which we are proud.
We are sensitive women who respect emotions, people and places. We are a team that has been moving in unison for more than 10 years, seeking beauty in all situations.
Kindness makes us larger and allows us to have broader visions of what we live, making each story a unique story. Finally, “Le velo” is the anagram of “Love”, that love that unites us in private life and has given meaning to everything.
Who will photograph our wedding?
When you choose Le Vélo you choose Sissi and Carmela and on your wedding day we will be the ones to photograph your event exclusively for you.
Depending on the needs and conditions, one of our assistants or a third photographer can also assist us.
What is your photographic style?
We like to capture Beauty in all its forms, from the most intimate moments of preparation, to moments of great emotion when the couple says: “YES, I WANT IT”! from the smiling moment of throwing confetti, to the most intimate moment of couple photos, let’s breathe together this eternal beauty to create unique moments.
With us you will never feel under pressure and you will be free to let go of any of your emotions.
We love working with natural light creating bright, dreamy and romantic images that tell a story, your story. The right mix between reportage and glamor photography, with a delicate, sensitive and never intrusive approach. Ours is a story of the day, made up of smiles, emotions and unrepeatable moments that make your wedding unique. The most beautiful part of our work, after the creative one, is the emotional experience.
How do you work on your wedding day?
We plan the timing of the day with your wedding planners and with the other suppliers so as to create a single fantastic work team.
We will photograph your details, which you have carefully chosen in the previous months, giving ample space to smiles, tears and hugs and to all the people most important to you. We will follow with trepidation the preparation of the groom and the bride, the exciting moment of the first look, which excites us too, the walk along the corridor that makes the eyes of all the guests sparkle, the photographs of the couple so romantic and glamorous right up to the moment where everyone will go wild on the track. We will be there, always by your side but one step behind, to let you enjoy every moment and be able to capture it naturally.
How many weddings do you photograph during the year?
We accept a limited number of weddings per year. We like to take care of your needs and listen to your requests, which is why our work is not limited to just the wedding day but we will work shoulder to shoulder with you or your planner to better plan every aspect of your event.
Do you travel for work?
Yes, we love to travel and we do it very willingly for work too. Wherever you decide to pronounce your “YES” or to have your marriage proposal, we will be there with you.
We usually arrive at the venue 1 or 2 days before to avoid risking travel delays or unforeseen events, this will also allow us to make an inspection before the wedding.
Do you also deal with destination weddings?
Yes, 90% of our couples are European or overseas couples who choose Italy as a destination for their big day.
When will we receive our images?
In just 4 months from the event you will be able to relive all the most beautiful and exciting moments of your wedding. You can also take advantage of the exclusive fast delivery service.
You will receive an email with the link to the private gallery with password on our Cloud. You will have the possibility to share the gallery with the people closest to you and download all the photos.

Do you make prints or albums?
We all have a printed photograph of our grandparents or parents, and we don’t want this emotional privilege to be lost.
So yes, we make prints and albums in certified fine art paper. We turn to the best printing laboratories to guarantee the best result for your printed memories.
Are the images retouched?
The selection and post-production process is the signature of Sissi and Carmela and for this we take care of it personally.
Each image is checked and post-produced. Retouching is never intrusive as we prefer you to look your best and very naturally.
We like to take and deliver bright images that respect the real colors of the day, the settings and the details. We use a preset that we created especially for us.
