My name is Alex Motta the sole photographer of Motta Weddings. I was born into a loud Italian family of creative minds, from designers to actors. As for me, I have been working professionally as a photographer since 2008. I have captured love stories in different parts of the world from Australia to Europe and Central America.

To me the most important thing about wedding photography is not trying to create moments but to capture things in a candid, artistic and natural way. I am known to work effortlessly, giving a bit of direction if needed but mostly letting the day happen, as it should. For this reason it’s just me on the day, the less people surrounding you with cameras the better.

As much as I feel that the photographs are a big part of the day, to me working in a way that is unobtrusive is equally as important in capturing the day naturally and allowing you to enjoy every moment.

I love photographing in natural light. Ideally the best time to take the wedding portraits is an hour before sun set when the sun is low in the sky and the light is golden. For me it’s more important to have quality of light rather than have quantity of time to take portraits. It’s also best to choose locations local to where you are getting married so you are not away from your guests for too long.

I would love nothing more than to be able to share in the joy and emotion of your big day and to have the privilege of capturing one of the most special days of your life.

Most of my clients book me well in advance (up to 16 months before the wedding date) so make sure you contact me as soon as you start making plans and have a date in mind. The warmer months of the year tend to book really quickly.
