About Gradisca Portento Fotografica
"My approach to life is discreet, direct, spontaneous and natural, just like my approach to photography. I like to work without being noticed and let things happen, so that I can tell a story while preserving its "purity" and authenticity.
To offer couples the same excellent quality standard, I only accept a limited number of dates and I only take care of a single wedding per day, so that I can personally take the pictures and deliver the final product.
I love to personally design your wedding albums and accessories and each piece is completely hand-made with high quality certified materials."
Behind The Brand
How would you describe your photography style?
Natural, evocative, empathic.
What is it that makes an image magical?
A magical image cannot be explained. I think it’s about making the ordinary extraordinary.
Do you travel interstate or internationally?
I live and work in Italy and have recently started shooting abroad, but for now, only in Europe.
As an estimate, how long does your editing process take?
My editing process is very thorough, so I’ll deliver the photo gallery within 90 days.
Describe a magical moment from a wedding you’ve photographed…
It was in an uninhabited medieval village on a late September afternoon. There was acoustic music playing and candles everywhere. This little red-haired woman with a hint of a smile on her face and a shy gait, walked alongside her father in a rarefied silence towards the groom who was waiting for her in the inner courtyard of the townhouse. I will never forget what I felt.
Why we love it…
Moody, evocative frames steeped in poetic beauty. We find ourselves enraptured by the way she captures the tiny, seemingly insignificant details and transforms them into indelible works of art.
For the couple…
For the poets, the dreamers, the feelers. For couples looking for powerful storytelling infused with a deeply expressive aesthetic.
As you choose your venue, theme or dress, consider its unique character and the meaning behind it. Gradisca is an artist who seeks to unearth the true essence and beauty of her subjects, and places or pieces imbued with character will allow her to produce something utterly enchanting…
