About me

 
Eleonora Festari photographer
I’ve been working as a photographer since 2015. Over the years I’ve been very lucky to work with other great photographers and learn a lot about wedding photography (but also about photography in a broader sense). But I’ve also witnessed how wasteful weddings – and also other kinds of events and photo shootings – can be; that’s why I want to do my bit and become an eco-friendly photographer.

What do you mean by “eco-friendly photographer”?

It means that my photography business is aligned with my values of sustainability and equality. This approach translates into choices and services that allows me to reduce waste and be mindful with my job, such as: using second-hand gear; writing thank you cards on 100% recycled paper; choosing photo box sets and usb drives produced by a 100% plastic free company; planting a tree for every photo album; and managing a zero carbon website.

Where can you find me?

I live in Crema, a town in the North of Italy (if you watched Call Me By Your Name you got a glimpse of my hometown), with my partner Marco, our border collie Cora and an apartment full of plants and books.
As a born and bred Italian, I work mainly in my home country: I’ve been almost everywhere in my region – the province of Cremona and Milan, the territory of Franciacorta and the Lake Como – but I also traveled to Liguria, Emilia Romagna, Tuscany, Lazio, Campania, Apulia and Sicily.

I’ve took photos of couples who live literally a few meters from my house as well as of lovebirds coming from abroad who wanted Italy to be the theater of their wedding.
As you may guess English is not a problem (I might not be perfect but I do my best to improve every single day) and I love knowing people coming from different parts of the world.

Other than weddings do you photograph anything else?

The answer is: heck yeah! I also take couple and family portraits, engagement and maternity sessions, branding headshots.
