To Infinity

Tens of thousands of aerial images were entered into the Drone Photo Awards 2021, celebrated each year in Siena, Italy. Italy-based wedding photographer Matteo Originale made his image “Towards the Infinite Together with You” at a wedding in Marina di Pisa, on the Tuscan coast. “I spotted those clouds on the horizon and I decided to place the couple towards their infinity of love,” he says.

The image won top prize in the wedding category of Drone Photo Awards 2021. Aerial photographers from around the world could enter photos into nine categories: urban, wildlife, sport, people, nature, abstract, wedding, series, and video. The contest is open to photos made via fixed-wing aircraft, helicopter, unmanned aerial vehicle, balloon, blimp, dirigible, rocket, kite, and parachute.
