The husband-and-wife team that helms Sergio Vassio Photography knows that love can thrive in any ecosystem. They've held wedding and engagement photo shoots on beaches and rustic lakefronts in temperatures ranging from sweltering to freezing. They've conducted urban sessions throughout the city, inside an art gallery, and on a soccer field, where a bride to be wore a gown and posed as the goalie. The pictures from these various sessions might be disparate in color and style, but they all share vibrant personalities and an air of natural romance.
At their shoots, the duo combines candid stills with planned poses and photojournalism, resulting in a comprehensive, three-dimensional depiction of a couple. In addition to ordering albums or Italian-made photo books, patrons can schedule wedding packages with add-ons such as editing, slideshows, and videography. They also schedule sessions for family, high-school-senior, and children's portraits.
