Testimonials

You need her. Stop looking for any other photographer if you're reading this. I am a wedding photographer as well and Anna is the best of the best. We strive to make our Brides feel like they living the dream they have always thought about and become a real life Cinderella, and Anna did that. Through and through - Anna made me, someone who also does this as a means of income, forget that I was anything other than the most beautiful woman that my husband sees. Thank you, Anna. Thank you for helping us make our day unforgettable in so many ways. From logistics, to knowledge and skill, to picking up my bouquet, to the fact it felt like a lifelong friend was with us - it all wouldn’t have been possible without you pointing us to moments of magic. Thank you for being the fairy godmother I didn’t know I needed and the eyes and lens that will be the mouthpiece of our day for generations to come. Thank you for knowing that you hold such power and impact when you hold a camera. And thank you for seeing us as a unit and individuals. You saw us, my dear and for that I’m so grateful we all spent that beautiful and cold morning together. Here’s to adventure and to all that’s to come. Just keep your camera close - you don’t want to miss a moment.

My husband and I recently traveled to Italy to celebrate our 21st wedding anniversary. We decided to look for a professional photographer in the area to take photos of us that would become art pieces in our home after our travels. I searched through hundreds of photographers, but when I saw the photos on the Hakuna Matata Weddings' website, I knew we had found our photographers. The emotion and artistic vision displayed in their images were unparalleled. I reached out via email, and Anna immediately responded. She was so easy to communicate with and had so many excellent suggestions for our session. She was always very quick in answering our emails and questions. Also, we felt the investment in the photos was very reasonable. Based on her suggestions, we decided to take a private water limousine to Villa Balbianello in Lake Como. She met us early one morning, and we were off in our boat. The entire experience was so amazingly surreal. Anna and Andrea photographed us as we were whisked around Lake Como. It is a moment my husband and I will never forget; one of our favorite memories of all time. Anna encourages natural engagement between her subjects and has a keen eye for capturing special moments and interactions between people. She gives gentle guidance and suggests fun interactions to relax and encourage her subjects. We felt so relaxed and special throughout the session. I cannot say enough about how easy it was to be in front of her camera. My husband and I enjoyed engaging with each other throughout the session and almost forgot there were photographers there. After our session, Anna provided us with a lovely gallery of our images very quickly. She had quoted us a very reasonable turn around time for receiving the images, but she sent us a link to our image gallery even more quickly than promised. Thank you! And the images are just breathtaking!!! My husband and I are enamored with the images. The image collection contained such a nice variety of images that truly showcased our love for each other. There were beautiful close-ups, stunning panoramic views, and fun interactions throughout our gallery. Anna did a phenomenal job of providing color and black and white options throughout the locations of our session. I would highly recommend working with Anna and her team to anyone, anywhere. And, we will definitely reach out to her again in the future for our photographic needs. Thank you, Anna, for creating an amazing experience and the most stunning, treasured art pieces we will ever have!

Anna and Francesco accompanied us on our most beautiful day in an impeccable way. Anna has a real gift for photography: she is good at capturing spontaneous moments, but also at posing and preparing the scene when she needs it. She is discreet in shooting to capture every moment in the most spontaneous way possible and very good in editing, with which she has recreated the atmosphere of that day in an exceptional way. Her unbeatable speed in delivering the shots and preparing the album. Francesco is another talent, his videos make anyone emotional. Even those who weren't there that day managed to capture the magic and love thanks to his videos. Francesco, like Anna, was very discreet during the day and managed to capture all the most important moments perfectly. As for delivery times: Anna shared a preview of the photos 3 or 4 days after the wedding; she then gave us all the edited shots (900+) after less than 2 months; Francesco gave us the 2 videos (trailer and long) after about 4 months. So for both I would say that they are very fast. They have a style that I love, we have received compliments from all our friends and acquaintances for the photos and videos! To understand their style, just scroll through Anna's social profiles, or browse their website. The value for money is unbeatable: good and also at the right price, especially if you consider the hours of work they spend on your project (the whole day of the wedding + all the subsequent editing work), the cost of the used equipment, as well as obviously to their professionalism. In addition, with them you will be on the safe side and this is invaluable for your big day.
