My mood


My photography features a minimal, clear, elegant style, producing signature photos that blend emotions and moments into the search for aesthetic and formal beauty, with no need for exaggerated or unrealistic poses.

I see images as the many bricks making up a story, a series of minor moments that capture the sincerity and pure emotion of a wedding day. All you’ll find in my work is silent interactions, stolen glances, laughter or tears, taken with the subjects not even realizing they are being photographed. As I tell my clients, what I really want, when they see their photos, is them to see what they truly were on that day.

I love taking wedding photos, because they capture unique, unforgettable moments in the spouses’ lives, loaded with feelings that can only be seen and experienced again through the photographs. It is a real privilege to create images that families will treasure all their lives. A chapter of their story.

In my wedding photos there is all of myself, because there is nothing I can do but be there 100%. And to be a wedding photographer Rome is fantastic, believe me.

I want to create photos that really matter. To you.

Working with Luigi

  • Luigi is the best. He's studied our natures from the first moment, to create compositions that not only looked at the explosive emotions of a memorable day, but they were focused on our characters.

    He managed to make me feel comfortable, though he usually avoids every target, notes the available objects and makes them the emphasis of a perfect photo.

    He’s a matchless professional become a loving friend of our happiness. He got excited at every shot too, and immediately we perceive how deeply he loves what he does. Each photo is like a son who educates and then publishes, praying that he knows to stand with his legs and he can convey what he has felt.

    He gets excited, so much! He is a good hearted, fast paced soldier,  able to take the time despite the light’s conditions not always perfect. The photos are the only thing along with the memories that keep forever. I would choose him so many times, just like my husband. And we only saw the photos preview, ready three days later despite other weddings and events.

    He took crazy pictures. Crazy.

  • We were introduced to Luigi by our wedding planner, we were planning a wedding from the United States. We wanted a photographer to capture not only our special moments, but moments of everyone who joined us for our wedding!! We were blessed to have been able to be married at Il Borgia castle and so incredibly thankful we were able to work with Luigi and Andrea!! They were so patient, sweet and professional. While planning from so far away I had so many questions, requests and wanted to make sure all details were taken care, and Luigi made sure to make me feel confident that all was taken care of! On the day of our wedding it was as if a longtime friend was there taking all of our photos! Luigi was so easy to work with and was able to capture some amazing photos from our fairytale!!! I would highly recommend working with Luigi for anyone who is wanting absolutely gorgeous photos!! When we return to visit Italy we will be contacting Luigi for another photo session!!!
  • During our wedding, celebrated in the summer of 2016, we met Luigi. Immediately the feeling sprints, he is able to understand the needs and the fears that a future married couple can have in those moments.  He reassures you, tells you, tolerates you, supports you. His photos speak for themselves and that already brightens your mood. He’s a professional, it will be fine. Indeed, it will be the best. While we were on honeymoon, on Facebook, in exclusive and premiere,  appeared already the first shots for us and for our friends who were eager as we are. Exciting is an understatement. Catching the right moments is not for everyone. If you don’t know yourself, if you don’t create a photographer/spouse relationship you can’t understand, you can’t shoot, then let it be. He’s in that way. Not the usual photos of the reception desk, no. Those can let you all shoot from your uncle. The groom's eyes to the witnesses in search of support before the fateful yes. The father who leaves his daughter in the hands of the young man at the beginning of the celebration. The joy of the friends at the reception. The eyes of the relatives at the exit from the church. That's Luigi Orrù."

  • The union between the professional who is and the passion that puts in makes his photos real masterpieces. Ladies and gentlemen here are to you the Master!! For our marriage, he was discreet, never intrusive but still present to immortalize the most important moments.

    I would re-choose him immediately.

  • “Thanks to the Great Mythical Luigi Orru we’ve relived the moments of our marriage as if we again dive in strong emotions of that real moment. Love, Joy, Party, Friendship, Music, everything told by the great art of Luigi who has been able to highlight his great professionalism, his great taste, his great personality and his great humanity. Our photographer is an exceptional person. Thank you very much, Luigi you are a myth!!“

  • “ The emotion has no voice! And who has ever had the fortune to experience an emotion truly knows how much truth there is in this sentence. Because the emotion has the power to take your breath away, you want to describe it but you failed, and every word used seems to downplay your feelings! But luckily, it happens to meet a person, a photographer, on a late afternoon in early September, maybe for passion, for bravery or for his unlimited professionalism, who has the power to transform those emotions into pictures! We have tested it and were so many in that fantastic October 17, and he put us all the magic of his shots, in order to not make us forget about it ever again. It is a photographer, a champion. An attentive and discreet presence which can not escape any important moment and he knows how to capture it with wisdom and but without ever appearing intrusive. Luigi has told thus, image after image, the story of our wedding day. The result is really nice: real photographs of moments lived, never casts, which have the power to arouse the emotions even months apart. Thank you, master Orrù! “

  • "Planning my wedding, I’m stopped a lot on Luigi’s photos, the first impression I’ve got seeing some weddings photos, I’ve thought, "But this is a story, not just photos"! Then I saw so many pages of photographers, but no one gave me that feeling I had tried, and this is the reason that accompanied me on my wedding day, and everything has been impeccable, I look at the photos and I’m excited, as they are beautiful, for the moments who has been able to take and why he’s done it excellently. The album is wonderful. Thanks again Luigi for your art! We’ll remember you for the whole life! "

  • "We met Louis during our search for a photographer for our marriage. He 'was the first one we met ... and also the last! His shots and his passion conquered our trust. When we saw his products we felt catapulted into the history of those unknown because in those photos there was all ... and we immediately understood that we also wanted us a thing like that .. forever alive, every time we look it. And now we also have our album, with photos that I am proud to show and to browse because they tell all about us. Thanks, Luigi !!"

  •  Just two months before my marriage, through a friend of my witness, I met Luigi .... and the despair (caused by the search of a photographer) became true joy, in fact, as soon as I saw his work  I completely fell in love with his photographs, they were real masterpieces and then I immediately felt at ease with him, and that was important. He’s been precise, present but discreet, professional and fun at the same time and the result has been beyond all expectations.I recommend Luigi .. because he’s a serious professional who loves his job and shows it !!! Thanks a lot, Luigi… really thanks for everything and congratulations ... because for me you really are the number one !! "

  • "I was desperate, I was looking for a good photographer four days before my marriage! The agreements with the former photographer had been blown at the last moment. Luckily I found Luigi Orru! My experience has been extremely positive! He 'came early with his assistant, he creates his own idea of the light, environment (complicated) and the best shots to make. I’m fully satisfied with his service! Thanks, Luigi!"

The wedding photo album

The wedding photo album is a special product; it is the icing on your wedding cake. You don’t have to order it, I allow my clients to freely choose whether to order it or not; however, if you wish to enhance the value of your photos and you would like to keep a vivid, tangible memory of your special day, I advise you to have one created; whether it be in a digital or a traditional form (the one with photos printed and glued inside), the choice is up to you. The albums that I propose are definitely not conventional photo albums, I would be offering you a true and proper Photo-book, prepared and edited with extreme care, professionalism and originality, as this must be a volume that narrates your love story. This will be a wedding photo album with a touch of class, as top quality photos must be printed on the best paper and multi-media aids at our disposal. My trustworthy supplier is Graphistudio, a world leader within the top quality professional digital printing sector.
