My Story

Some random facts about me…

• I am a Berkshire & Destination Wedding photographer, 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!
• 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.
• 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.
• Having spent a lot of time researching Russian modern art in my 20s, visual art has a massive influence on my photography.
• I am a Tom Waits fan, massive “Friends” lover (I could watch the episodes a million times!) and I’m addicted to Nutella (but then, who isn’t?).

Berkshire wedding photographer

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.

Empathy & Storytelling

AND THIS IS

OUR WEDDING DAY

 

Our own wedding day was a big celebration of friendship and life. We got married in Perugia, Italy, on our son’s first birthday, with an intimate ceremony surrounded only by our closest friends and family. We symbolically and literally tied the knot in front of those people that mean the world to us. Wherever we looked, we saw love.
It was a small and non-traditional wedding, relaxed, and focused on love rather than anything else. I really wanted to get to the altar feeling completely relaxed, so I made a conscious effort to not stress, not even for a minute, over anything at all.
Choosing my own wedding photographer turned out to be harder than I thought, but once I picked the one, I never looked back. His style fitted perfectly with who we are, and what we truly wanted for our wedding day and for the style we were after.
I always joke that the perfect photographer for you should be like the perfect man: if you don’t click, he’s just not the one.
