Have you always been dreaming of having a destination wedding or elopement in Italy? Can you already see yourself having a romantic and intimate wedding in the beautiful Italian landscape, maybe in the rolling hills of Tuscany or the lesser known Umbria or Le Marche region? Or maybe you’d rather get married at a populair Italian wedding location like the Amalfi coast, Cinque Terre, Lake Como, Sardinia, Sicily or Venice? Of course you can combine your destination wedding with a super romantic honeymoon in Italy or a post wedding couple shoot in one of these regions.

Wedding Photographer in Italy

I am Renate van Dijk and I am a destination wedding photographer and the founder of Wit Photography. I specialise in weddings abroad in Europe and I am based in The Hague, London and Belgrade. I photograph weddings everywhere in Europe and I love destination weddings. Have a look at my wedding photography portfolio and find out where I have been travelling to because of this passion. I would love to photograph your wedding in Italy because I am addicted to travelling I love it even more when I photograph awesome couples at all kinds of epic places around the world. I mean the rolling hills of Tuscany, the gorgeous Amalfi coast or picturesque cobblestone villages are all swell and stuff but it’s not half as good as placing a loving and fun loving couple within that frame. You can read here why I think Italy is the perfect place for a destination wedding.



I can give you lots of tips on having a stress free destination wedding. I often travel to Italy for weddings abroad and I grab every opportunity to travel through this fantastic country.

Previously I photographed in Tuscany, the Cilento coast and Florence. And this year too I will shoot weddings in Italy, for which I will travel to Le Marche, Urbino, Bologna and Lake Como. And I can’t wait to shoot more weddings, elopements and love shoots in other Italian locations! So don’t hesitate to contact me if you are looking for a photographer for your wedding in Italy. I can’t wait to hear all your wedding plans.



In case you’re looking for a wedding location in Italy, a fabulous stylist, a wedding planner or a florist, feel free to contact me as well. I’ll gladly help you out! I will help you with find the best Italian vendors. And I’m pretty sure we will find the perfect match for you and your partner so that everything on your wedding day will be as you imagined it would be.

how I work


With all the stress that comes with organising a wedding, the last thing you need is to worry about cramping your day into 8 hours of wedding photography. Your wedding is the only wedding I’ll shoot that weekend. As a matter of fact I’ll be with you the entire day. I don't care if your wedding is 6 hours or 16 hours, actually I prefer capturing the whole story of your day. For me the real work starts after the wedding day, when I start editing you images.


Unlike other photographers, you can print your photos wherever you want. You receive all your photos fully edited and in high-resolution, so you can do with them whatever you want. You can even print your own wall-art and albums (of course I can also arrange those for you if you prefer) and you can keep all your digital files safe wherever you want, without any extra costs.


I traveled all over the world, photographed in all types of weather circumstances and shot weddings as big as 250 guests and as intimate as an elopement with just the couple. With my experience you don’t have to worry about a thing. Shooting in the snow in Austria/with lots of bright light in Italy/in a dark castle in Scotland/while being sandblasted in Iceland? I’ve done it! Plus I speak English (and Dutch) at near-native level and I am familiar with all the English, Dutch and American wedding customs and traditions.

Now you know a bit about me, I would love to hear more about you! I would love to hear all of your plans and ideas for your wedding. Please fill in this email form or email me your story in your own words at so I can see if me and my photography are a fit for your wedding. When you fill in the form and tell me about your plans I will email or call you back asap (at least within 48 hours) to let you know my availability for your wedding in Italy.

'Renate was so easy to work with'
Marina & Stephen about their destination wedding in Serbia

'Having our wedding in a different country meant that we had a briefing with Renate over email which was as successful as in person as we were asked the right questions that put us at ease... On the day of our wedding celebration Renate was so easy to work with... She was responsive to all our requests as well as being non-intrusive and told the story of our day with main points beautifully captured... We are happy customers with photos to show it.'
