Tell us about your business!
For as long as I can remember , photography has always been in my life. My father used to be a
photographer and I really can say that weddings have always been a part of my life. However, it
took me a while to figure out that wedding photographer was my path. I studied advertising and tried a lot of different types of photography before realising that the beautiful connection between people, emotions and places was my passion. Since then, I never looked back.
What would you like couples to know about you?
I approach every love story with one goal - to authentically capture the essence of that moment in a
timeless, effortless and evocative way.
Where are you based?
I live inn Rome, but a piece of my heart still lives in the Southern Italy, not far from the Amalfi Coast, where I was born and raised.
Do you travel for weddings?
I do travel, and love doing it. The creative part of my job is continuously fed by new ideas and new places, that’s why I can’t wait to receive enquiries that will take me to a different city.

Who is your dream client?
My dream clients are modern, romantic and sensitive, with an eye for aesthetic, beauty and art. But
above all, are the ones who find themselves in my vision and who trust me. That trust is what makes
