I was born and raised in Puglia, a southern region located in the "heel of Italy's boot" known for its centuries old masserias and ancient towns. My love for photography started when my father gifted me my first camera at the age of 18, at that time I was studying painting at the University of Bologna and I started experimenting with photography along with painting. In 2010 I visited New York City for the first time to attend a photography workshop and little did I know that this trip would change my life forever. With New York was love at the first sight, I loved its incredible energy and decided that I wanted to live and work there.
As many New York stories, I had countless jobs before finding my artistic voice, but when I photographed my first wedding I instantly realized that this was what I wanted to do. As a hopeless romantic, I loved the joy and excitement of the day and I was touched by how two families come together to celebrate the love of the newlywed. I feel so lucky to have this dream profession of capturing love and happiness for my couples, having the chance to tell their unique story through my images.
Traveling to New York changed my life, I left with a bag for three months and I’ve been living now in NYC for over 10 years. I thank my lucky stars that when I just arrived I met Mikhail, my now husband, business partner and soulmate. We have been together since then, got married in New York and now we have our own little family and baby Leonardo.
I split my time between the US and Italy living half a year in each country, in this way I’m often able to meet my couples in NYC before their destination wedding in Italy. I’ve been photographing weddings since 2015 and have photographed more than 100 big and small weddings in the United States and in Europe since then.
We do not remember days, we remember moments.
THE REASON WHY
I do what I do
Photography has the power to freeze time and bring you back to experience that same moment again and again and I think that’s such an amazing gift. My mission is to capture your love and the time spent with your loved ones so that you could experience it all over again. My photographic style combines a fine art and editorial look while documenting all the special moments on the wedding day. I use natural light to create luminous and joyful photographs, my goal is to create timeless images for my clients that they will cherish forever.
