The passion for art was born with me and before my approach to photography I draw for many years. At 18 I bought my first analogue camera and since I like to get to the depths of things I worked hard to learn the development techniques in my homemade darkroom. At the beginning I concentrated on portrait photography, also attending at courses and seminars. Shortly I found myself setting up my first photo exhibitions, in order to become, afterwards a full-time wedding professional.
Photographer for wedding, couples and portrait
Find out my creative style
Right now I create mainly wedding , couples and portraits photo shoots. In 2019 I won the Zankyou International Wedding Awards, a prestigious award given to the best professional in the wedding industry.
I love to portrait especially the female figure, nature is part of my style: natural locations are my favourite.
I am located in Tuscany, but for my wedding, engagement and elopement photo shoots I move throughout Italy, especially in locations like Lake Como, lakes in Lombardy, Liguria, Umbria, Veneto, Lombardy, Amalfi Coast, Salento and Sicily. I also perform my services travelling abroad, throughout Europe and not only, since I follow the requests of my clients.
My style is based on a deep curiosity for life, nature and adventures. I am inspired in my personal taste also by my childhood experiences: the summers spent with my grandmother, who taught me the pleasure of reading and discovering, and who instilled in me the love for nature, key element in my photography style. In my shots there is also a cinematographic vision in the framings, inspired constantly by the filmmaking. My favourite movies are thrillers, crimes and old classics: Stand By Me, The Wizard of Oz, Labyrinth and The NeverEnding Story.
I work with discretion and always on tiptoe. I love to characterised my photographs as if they were portraits of country atmospheres and conviviality. In every photograph I tell a story, a memory…and also a little bit of me!

She was able to catch some gazes and moments that will stay with us forever.”
