we are


We are destination wedding and portrait photographers couple available to travel worldwide, who love to capture the special moments in people’s lives! We do not have many words to describe ourselves, and maybe we are not very good at it. What we will try to do is explain our instinct and tell you our story.

Until four years ago we were spending most of our time at our corporate jobs in fashion industry. Then came a moment when we asked ourselves if that was what we really wanted to do for the rest of our lives. So we decided to combine our passion for photography, weddings and travelling and here we are today…telling you our story as destination wedding photographers.

BOTTEGA 53 truly reflects our inner spirit and the story of our lives. “Bottega” in Italian means “the place of work of an artist where all is hand made”, “5” stands for “the day when everything started changing our lives forever” and “3″ indicates “our lucky number”

With inspiration  from film and fashion photography, we love to create natural bright and romantic photos, working mainly with natural light, looking for something that has an authentic and emotional feeling.

Our mission is to make your wedding day special and unforgettable. We love capturing the feeling between people, picturing emotions, tears, smiles and every single feeling that you will keep with you for the rest of your lives. No matter where in the world you decide to go, we will be there for you on the most important and romantic day in your whole life.

We believe that every wedding is different and unique, and that’s what keeps us alive and inspired from each couple, landscape, city and story we are going to tell. We go beyond a simple photograph and find a way to immortalize your inner emotions, smiles and tears through a unique form of art. Our goal as destination wedding photographers is to create an authentic and romantic story of your special day that you will keep with you for the rest of your lives.

We would love to tell your beautiful and romantic story of your wedding, engagement, elopement or wedding proposal. If you would like to meet us and have a cup of coffe with us, we’d be more than happy to enjoy it with you in a pretty cafè or virtually through skype! In both cases we are sure it’ll be a pleasant experience!

We are looking forward to making the magic happen!

Kind Words

Helen & Eric // BERLIN

Nancy and Piermarco are the most talented photographers I know and did a incredible job at our wedding!
From the first moment we met we had a great connection. They are so friendly and open, that it felt like we already know each other. They made us feel super comfortable all day long and fit in perfectly with our guests. Before I knew the great work of Nancy and Piermarco, I didn’t realise how important wedding pictures are. Now that we received more than a thousand amazing pictures, I am so so happy we decided to have Nancy and Piermarco documenting our wedding. They just love what they do and you feel it in every single picture. These two don’t do a nine to five job, but turned our amazing day into one unforgettable memory. Thank you so much guys! Hope to see you again some day! 

Love, Eric


Monica & Damian // El TEIDE

We have never thought that this short trip to Teide could have been the most exciting footage ever.
Marco & Nancy are profesionals to the bone. They make to happen the impossible to real pictures.
Their avant-garde approach is unique, turning such a tiny and simple thing to a master piece.

The experience of working with them was very friendly, warm and open to new ideas to come as a brainstorm. Also, during this session Piermarco even risked his life so many times just to get some of these pictures!  We found not only two very talented photographers, but also two very good friends.

Thank you indeed for your kind and sincere attitude and good luck with your future trips. Hit the road guys!

Damian & Monika.

Antonio & Ilaria // ZANZIBAR

Antonio and I were married in February 2016 in ZANZIBAR and we chose Bottega 53 to capture this our SPECIAL MOMENT.
The decision to entrust ourselves to them we took it not by chance but by observing their work on the official website and talking to them.
Photo very special and exciting … photo photo dynamic …. that alone is valuable but multiply their value as a whole,
in their composition in sequence ….. like in a story … you ..images talking about …
I love the way they tell stories of love ….. they capture the essence and make it more visible through photographic images.
But we talk about the way they work absolutely innovative.
From the first moment you meet them or talk to them you realize that you will be satisfied
until the last photos because their work is focused on customization and in fact are interested to bring out the
personality of the couple and tell their story, their staff way of being and living.
Each story is a universe of emotions and feelings that need to be enhanced.
Piermarco and Nancy have the sensitivity and passion to seize and capture in their
photographs magic to every story and the most precious moments, what are the promises of marriage and weddings.


Milosha & Travis // TUSCANY

Bottega 53 were our photographers for our wedding in Tuscany and they did a great job! Both Piermarco and Nancy make you feel amazing and are great at getting you comfortable. Their pictures capture not just the wedding, but also the spirit of the place. I also loved their attention to the little details of the wedding – they got us photos of little things we didn’t notice on that day.
We have been receiving numerous compliments and we have some beautiful photos that we will cherish for the rest of our lives. Thank you guys!

Yin & Patrick // CAPRI


Patrick and I had an amazing time with you! Both of you are so fun and professional at the same time, we felt very comfortable having you guys taking our photos. The crazy shots and special moment in Capri will remain as one of the best part of our memories. We can’t thank you and Marco enough for the day, we look forward to seeing the beautiful pictures. You guys are such lovely couple – we hope to see you two around sometime in the future, London, maybe? 🙂 All the best in Bali and Singapore. Take care!! xx


GUEST // Nicolò

I just love your pictures! What else can I say…
I was just a guest at a wedding in Zanzibar where these two wonderful humanbeing and professionals where working…and this was more than enough to understand their creativity and artistic sense. At this point I can’t even imagine what must have been for the couple looking at the final result…since it is a masterpiece!
The wedding snapped through their lenses was straight out of a dream! What an amazing experience and professionalism. It was a pleasure for me to share my time with them and talk about their vision of photography!
Thanks for your work guys…seriuosly!
If one day I’ll get married…I’ll know who I have to call!!
