In our conversation with Matteo Coltro, it becomes abundantly clear that his path to photography is as vivid and colorful as his images. "I was born and raised between Cono and Milan, so the love for fashion is in my genes," he reflects with a nostalgic tone.

The initial chapters of his story were inked in the halls of economics and marketing, a world far removed from the vibrant streets of Milan he adored. "I found the world of finance too colorless," Matteo admits, revealing a yearning for a palette richer and more varied. It was this craving for color and life that propelled him into the world of wedding photography, a realm where emotions are as vivid as the hues captured by his lens.

"A modern signature," he explains, "with an editorial approach enriched with natural and honest emotions for a timeless effect." His approach creates images that are more than just photographs; they are stories captured in a single frame.

Matteo’s tool of choice is a digital camera, but his post-production work is inspired by film. "Film-inspired post-production with natural and brilliant color," he says, highlighting his dedication to creating vibrant, life-like images that stand the test of time.

Perhaps the most striking aspect of Matteo's photography is his love for the human connection. "I like being in contact with people from everywhere, making Lake Como known and telling their love story in such a beautiful place," he shares enthusiastically.

"I like to capture genuine, relaxed, and candid moments," Matteo reveals, emphasizing his talent for making clients feel comfortable and connected. This approach extends to his work in destination weddings, a realm where he feels equally at home. "I'm very lucky to be based on Lake Como but I like to travel all around Italy and France," he says, his eyes lighting up at the thought of new landscapes and stories waiting to be captured.

His advice to clients? "Be yourself and have fun during the shoot" This simple yet profound guidance encapsulates Matteo's philosophy: in the world seen through his lens, authenticity and joy are the most beautiful subjects.
