About me

…BUT REALLY IS ALL ABOUT YOU!

I have been photographing weddings for six years now, but photography has been part of my life for as long as I can remember. 

When I first started, I never thought I’d be a wedding photographer! It was never a genre I felt particularly drawn to… Fast forward to now and I am completely hooked and deeply in love with my job as a wedding photographer!

No two weddings are ever the same and each one is a story I am lucky to witness and tell. The spontaneous, emotional, documentary nature of wedding photography is what I love the most.

Having spent a lot of time researching Russian modern art in my 20s, visual art plays a massive influence on my photography and I try to bring some of it in my work. Ultimately though, my priority is let your own story and personality come out through my photos.

‘Cause it’s not about me, it’s all about you!

Some random facts about me

01  I’m ITALIAN

I am originally from Bacoli, a tiny, historical town not far from Naples, Italy. If you’ve never heard of it, google it, I promise you won’t be disappointed!

02  I speak russian

In my university years, I studied languages (Russian and Polish) and that has provided me with the unique opportunity to travel and experience places not just as a tourist. So far, I’ve been lucky enough to have lived in Moscow, Los Angeles and now England.

03 i’m still deciding whether I am an introvert or an extrovert

 I am naturally drawn to people’s stories: what makes them who they are and what their purpose is, intrigues me… That is why I always prefer an intimate 1-2-1 conversation over small talk in a crowd.

04  were they really on a break though?

I am a massive “Friends” lover (I could watch the episodes a million times!) and have recently been obsessing over “Schitt’s Creek” .

My wedding

intimate & relaxed just like us
Paul and I got married on a super sunny day in  May in Perugia, Italy in 2017 on our son’s first birthday.
 
Our wedding day was a big celebration of friendship and life.  An intimate ceremony surrounded only by our  family and closest friends. It was the only time when people from different chapters (and countries!) of our lives spent some time in the same place. Wherever we looked, all we saw was love.
 
Having experienced my own wedding has definitely made me a better photographer to capture yours.
 

Berni cares so much about her work and creating a beautiful story.

She took time to find out about us, our story and what kind of vibe we were looking for.

On the day she was friendly, unobtrusive, caring, thoughtful and captured the happiest day of our life in the most beautiful way.

There are so many wedding photographers out there but Berni is truly exceptional and I can’t recommend her enough.
