A LIGHTHOUSE

Tuscany, 42.7927 / 10.1178

MEET US – BEHIND THE CAMERAS

Lumos Produzioni was born on Elba Island in Tuscany, Italy.

There is a lighthouse on the island, perched on a rocky outcrop with views out over the endless sea. We have been so intensely inspired by this legendary landscape that we decided to start our business and make the lighthouse part of our adventures together. We want to create something which leaves our mark on this incredible world as we sail through life together.

We are partners in business but a couple in life and we challenge ourselves constantly in both our profession and to be the best people we can be. We feel it is our calling in life to find and capture the beauty of life, the truth and passion of love and portray that in our films.

FRANCESCA

Francesca was born in Sardinia, an island of true natural beauty, with mystical secrets which is surrounded by the most beautiful clear blue sea. She is an adventurer, who seeks out new experiences and challenges, in constant search of ways to see the world through new eyes.

 

With her background in law, and an extremely creative mind she is dedicated to her family and friends. She loves exploring new technology, for work and artistic endeavors, including calligraphy and watercolors both in print and digital formats. She loves her cats, classical and rock music and has seen her favorite band U2 in concert many times.

 

Francesca brings the female point of view to our duo, she delights in focusing on the little details and the unique connections the bride has with her family and bridal party. She deeply understands those emotional moments in that way that women do, and ensures that they are preserved for your memories. When she works, she is a perfectionist, always seeking the perfect composition for a shot, capturing all of the elements and small details.

SIMONE

Simone is a passionate soul, who seeks to express his creativity in all aspects of his life. He feels most at home when he is creating, seeking raw emotions and the spark of life. Holding his breath, not only when he is free diving in his spare time, he literally pushes himself under the surface of life. Always looking to discover the beauty of life and its challenges.

 

With a degree in Communication and Marketing and a background as a lifestyle and wedding photographer he loves the technological side of his work, researching the latest equipment and lenses to allow him to play with and capture the light. Passionate about cinematography and his favorite Netflix shows, he is a true romantic who loves nothing more than a really good Gin & Tonic at golden hour, with beautiful Francesca by his side.

 

When working, Simone is the master of perfect framing of shots, using gimbal equipment to help him to capture each moment. Color correction has become an addiction for him, along with seeking the perfect mix of captured sound, images and the musical soundtrack.

WHAT OUR COUPLES SAYS FILL OUR HEARTS

Danny and Milou

Francesca and Simone are an incredibly talented and professional couple, who know how to capture weddings and love stories like no one else does.

My husband and I found Lumos Produzioni on google and got a very quick response from them, when we’ve send them an email. Soon after we’ve scheduled a Skype date and ended up talking for over an hour. They were so interested in our story, happy to tell us all about their way of working and what we could expect if we were to book them for our Italian wedding.

We fell in love with their work and were happy to meet each in person during our trip to Italy, a few months before our wedding day. Together we’ve searched the venue for the best spots, drank some wines and got to know each other.

On the big day, we were super happy to see them both again. They comforted us, were the best and most inspiring team with our photographer and made sure we had no idea that they were there, while making sure to capture every single detail and all the best moments during our big day.

When the box with the video arrived, we were over the moon! Francesca and Simone did the best job ever and created a memory for us that is irreplaceable. We’ve cried every time seeing the video and totally regret that we didn’t book them for the other few days as well.

When in doubt, DO IT! We feel blessed to have met these truly kind and talented people and hope to see them very soon again in La Bella Italia or at home in amsterdam.

Thank you sweethearts! Grazie mille, a presto!

We cannot thank Simone and Francesca enough for making our dream wedding video. The skill, time and effort they put into their work is exceptional and extremely professional - a job they clearly love! On our first meeting with them via Skype their personalities were infectious and we instantly felt at ease and in the right hands for our special day to be filmed by them. From the main events to the littlest details they captured it all perfectly on video..we honestly felt like it was a movie trailer. Our parcel arrived home presented beautiful in a customised wooden box. Every time we watch our wedding video it brings so many happy memories that we will cherish for a lifetime - we can only thank Simone and Francesca for this. We hope our paths cross again one day.

Lauren and Jon

We found Lumos Produzioni through a photo of their beautiful presentation box on Instagram. We had our initial contact via email and then organised a Skype call where they told us about their story and their company and got to know us as a couple and our wedding plans. Their passion and talent were evident from the beginning of our contact and by the time it came to meet them the day before our wedding, it was obvious they had done extensive research and preparation on how best to capture our day.

They brought such lovely energy to the day, working tirelessly and making a wonderful impression on our other vendors and guests. Receiving our videos in the beautiful presentation box just a few short months after our wedding was such an emotional moment, reliving every memory through their incredible artistry and perfectly chosen soundtrack. We've had such amazing feedback from all our friends & family who we've shared it with.

Be assured if you entrust the capture of your wedding memories to Simone & Francesca you will be forever grateful for their passion and talent, they truly are a team and one we're so happy to have worked with.

Our endless thanks to you both. Grazie Mille

Anastasia and Alex

From the minute we Skype'd with Francesca and Simone, it was so clear that they we're the ones we NEEDED to capture our special wedding weekend. Their warmth and genuine passion for what they did was so apparent. They went from being a vendor we were hiring, to feeling like friends who happened to be badass, talented storytellers.

They filmed our indian ceremony on Friday night and the entire following wedding day. I was initially nervous about the video because i really wanted it to capture our personalities and tell our story, as well as our friends and families. They managed this so effortlessly. All our friends and family commented on how lovely they were to be around. They made everyone feel so comfortable which resulted in natural, beautiful moments on camera...even from the Groom who hates the camera!!

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Lumos Produzioni 1000%, they are professional, so talented, so beautifully warm and so much fun. Our wedding film was presented in such a gorgeous presentation box and delivered with such love and care. We will treasure it forever.

The day goes by so quickly and it's impossible to remember all the little moments...make the best decision of your wedding and choose Francesca and Simone to film your special day (and ideally more if possible!) I can't count how many times I have watched the full version as well as the teaser. I will be watching it for years, it is the perfect memory of a truly magical time and we ate so so grateful for them capturing it so perfectly. This couple are so incredibly generous with their time and nothing is too much. They are so much more than just your wedding videographers, you will fall in love with their style, creativity and most importantly them!
