Read My Story, Tell Me Yours
INTIMATE & TIMELESS STORYTELLING
Hi, I’m Berni (short for Bernardetta) and I’m an Italian portrait photographer currently based in Reading, Berkshire. I first got into photography as a child – when I think about it now, I think photography seemed like a beautiful way to preserve reality, and somehow remember people and things in the exact way that I ‘felt’ them at the time.
It took me a long time to realise what type of photographer I wanted to be. After a lot of soul-searching, I finally realised that storytelling and timeless, intimate portrait photography is what I feel the
strongest affinity with. I’d love you to take a look at my work and contact
me if you think we are a good fit.
The right photographer should be someone you feel comfortable with and are always happy to have around…. Finding the right one is a bit like finding the right partner. After all, you will spend quite a lot of time with them on what is one of the most important days of your life. So go ahead, ask me anything you like and let’s see if I’m the one for you.
I believe that empathy plays a huge part in my ability to
photograph someone. I once heard a great photographer say that one should “always photograph with the empathy of a saint.” These words really stuck with me and inspire me daily. Whether you hire me for a family shoot or to capture your big day, I do my best to visualise what it feels like to walk in your shoes, see the day through your eyes, and preserve what’s really important to you.
