Hi, my name is Alessandro Della Savia and I am wedding photographer based in Milan, Italy. I shot my first wedding when a friend asked me to replace him back in 2008, and since then I never stopped. I instantly fell in love with the wedding couples and every wedding fills me with new emotions.
Weddings in Italy are usually very stylish and I want to push my attention to all details to the utmost perfection. So my bag is usually very well equipped.
I travel with a Think Tank Airport International V.2.0 Rolling Camera Bag, and here’s what is usually inside on a wedding day:

Canon Speedlite Transmitter ST-E3-RT: when it is not necessary to mount a Speedlite as the master flash.
HoldFast Money Maker – leather straps: I have two! A Water Buffalo Black one and a Water Buffalo Burgundy one. It looks like a particular American style here in Europe, but they really rock! I can’t wear no other.
Lenses on the shelf at home or in my second bag, a Think Tank Airport TakeOff Rolling Camera Bag:
Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 II – I use it for architectural shots, but not for every wedding.
Canon 24-70mm f/2.8 II – When I’m in a hurry it helps me do everything, but it is a little bit too big.
Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 II IS – This is a lens that allows me to be very discreet when the atmosphere is nicely relaxed and I cannot get too close to my subjects.
