Matera Wedding Photographer

Elopement Wedding in Matera

Hello friend, chances are you were searching for a wedding photographer in Matera and found us here. For us, each couple is a friend and not a client.

Matera (Italian pronunciation: [maˈteːra] or locally [maˈtɛːra]); Materano: Matàrë IPA: [maˈtarə]) is a city in the province of Matera in the region of Basilicata, in Southern Italy. It is the capital of the province of Matera and the capital of Basilicata from 1663 to 1806. The town lies in a small canyon carved out by the Gravina. Matera, Basilicata's jewel, may be the third-longest continuously inhabited human settlement in the world. Natural caves in the tufa limestone, exposed as the Gravina cut its gorge, attracted the first inhabitants perhaps 7000 years ago. More elaborate structures were built atop them. Today, looking across the gorge to Matera’s huddled sassi (cave dwellings) it seems you've been transported back to the ancient Holy Land. Indeed, the ‘Città Sotterranea’ (Underground City) has often been used for biblical scenes in films and TV. Here the human ecosystem has been perfectly incorporated into the outlying natural environment, and has perpetuated throughout the centuries. The settlements have undergone various adaptations in each of the diverse historical epochs, from the first subterranean dwellings, to the sophisticated urban structures that followed, built with the materials extracted from the local rock – thus, they are an excellent example of the right use of natural resources.

We would like to say a word or two about us. We're Tu & Tara, a destination wedding photographer & videographer based in Greece, Germany & other parts of Europe (mostly Italy, Spain, France) - also available worldwide.

We're a young couple who is having an affair with life, nature and sunlight. We love art, classic cinema, good food, traveling & seeking adventure off the grid. One day at a time. Both living and working with an adventurous mindset, we find ourselves drawn to couples who share our free-spirited lifestyle.

Our passion is to create beautiful wedding photos & films that stand out. Not just something style over substance but something visually beautiful and artistic at the same time with deeper meaning and true emotion, capturing the essence of you & the story of your life. Wedding Photography is about you. Your story is important. Your love is worth talking about. It deserves to be treated individually so we can tailor our time, our hearts and souls to suit your every need.
