Who we are
The UMBERTO FOTOGRAFI studio was founded in Sicily in 1966 by the parents Umberto and Sara, both photographers.
Since childhood Davide and Dante started working in the family studio where they learned the art of photography which has become a life passion.
Parents, despite being retired, still follow the business today by giving the right directives and their professional teachings.
In 2014 the photographic studio became part of the WECONCEPT ITALY group which represents the excellence of wedding companies in Italy.
Today the studio is inside the ZOLFINDUSTRY space design in via Simeto 6/16 Catania.
Over the years Davide and Dante have specialized in the wedding reportage sector aiming at the creation of spontaneous photo and video services.

We are here to capture your moments
We grew up in the studio of our parents who started the business in Caltagirone in 1966.
My name is Davide Di Pasquale, born in 1968, I take care of the photographic part, from shooting to post-production.
Dante Di Pasquale born in 1974, Videographer, takes care of the entire video part, from shooting to post-production.
By now very broad experience in the sector that has led us to a preparation of photographic awareness and relationship with the public such as to consider ourselves veterans of marriage, without however settling on a system of work static that would be in contrast to our character.
Style and Philosophy
Ours is a documentary / reportage style, the true story of the wedding with a journalistic flavor.
In a very cordial way we will document all the phases of the day, without being intrusive and with the utmost discretion.
We like simplicity but not simplism, we prefer to capture the true emotions made of smiles, hugs, kisses and all the spontaneous attitudes that enrich the photographic story of the wedding day.
We will be with you all day in a discreet way to resume what is happening, to catch expressions, smiles, tears, always with sympathy and good education.
The genius, the true friends, the trust, the curiosity, the respect, the solidarity, the calm tones, the life in the open air, the sea, the sport to always be in good physical shape, even the appearance plays its part part … and why not, good food …
A profession that over the years has given us great personal satisfaction thanks to many followers who follow us assiduously on our website and on the most popular social networks and it is this enthusiasm that has prompted us to continuously search for a dynamic, detailed reportage style. spontaneous, without poses and forcing, clean, non-invasive and as faithful as possible to reality.
It is a joy for us to share the best day of their lives with our future spouses, actively participating with advice and suggestions always in a rather discreet way.
We enter the scene almost “on tiptoe”, filming and photographing the protagonists, young, polite, easygoing, friendly guys who we follow from the preparation of the morning up to the long-awaited moment of cutting the “wedding cake”.
The greatest satisfaction after so many years of profession, is always that of receiving numerous positive feedbacks from the excited spouses after watching their video or their photos a myriad of times. The result is the story of that special day in 20 minutes with the most salient moments from the preparation of the bride’s house, church, outside to the reception in the hall.
Personally, we have developed the idea of rejuvenating the classic wedding video by giving it a rhythm more similar to the language of cinema by creating a trailer where music is a determining element, essential to the image, as if they were one.
Our task, therefore, will be to transform a day that is basically always the same as itself into a unique event made up of unprecedented emotions.
Usually almost all shooting sessions take place in Sicily, for example many foreigners choose Taormina as the setting for their “fateful yes”, but it also happens to organize weddings and events throughout Italy.
