My Story

”Everything worth remembering can be captured in a photograph”

…Who am I ? Random facts about me…
  • I am originally from Bacoli, a tiny but historical town not far from Naples, Italy: google it for some photos, I promise you won’t be disappointed!
  • In my university years, I have studied languages (Russian and Polish) and that has provided me with the unique opportunity to travel to places, not just like a tourist. So far, I had the fortune to live in Moscow, Los Angeles and now in England;
  • I  am naturally drawn to people’s stories: what makes who they are, what is their purpose… That is why I always prefer an intimate 1-2-1 conversation to big loud crowds;
  • Visual art has a massive influence on my photography, having spent lots of time researching Russian modern art in my 20s;
  • I am a Tom Waits fan, massive ”Friends” lover (I could watch the episodes a million times!) and addicted to Nutella (but then who isn’t?)
  • I am the creator of a site that provides info and support to all the Italian Mums living in the UK;
My Why

I first got into photography when I was a child.  I did it because I wanted to try to not forget. I wanted to preserve my reality. Not just that, but to ‘shape’ it and to be able to remember people and things in the exact way I ‘felt’ them at the time. I often remember places like they would be in a photograph, framed in a certain way or lit by a moody light. I wish I’d have more photos of some fragments of my childhood: my grandparents’ dark hall, the old-style furniture, their dog… I wish I could see them again the exact way I used to.

This is what I would like to do for other people too. This is why I do what I do.

It took me a long time to realize what type of photographer I wanted to be. After a ton of soul-searching, I’ve recently realized that storytelling is what I believe in the most with the addition of a few gorgeous, timeless portraits.

No good photograph ever comes from people feeling uncomfortable and being forced into a pose they don’t like. So my first priority on the day will be making sure you are comfortable.  I’ll strive to be unintrusive. I will let the events flow naturally.

We will create together images that represent who you are.

My Approach

AND THIS IS

MY WEDDING DAY

 

I recently got married myself on our baby’s 1st birthday. To choose my own wedding photographer was by far the most difficult part of the planning for me. The right photographer for you should be someone you feel comfortable with and don’t mind having around. Just like the right partner.
