Photographer Bio

As a passionate wedding photographerItaly, I started my journey in Milan, mostly with corporate clients and architecture subjects, which led to a deep appreciation for capturing the beauty and subtleties of human emotion through the lens of my camera. 
Following my formal education, I spent several years exploring different avenues of photography before discovering that surprise proposal photography was my true calling. There is something profoundly rewarding about documenting the love and joy of a couple's most significant day, and I dedicated myself to mastering this craft.

Over time, my portfolio has grown to include not just images made as a Venetian wedding photographer but also various destination weddings, elopements, and surprise marriage proposals. Each event has contributed to my expertise in dealing with the nuanced and fast-paced environment of wedding photography. My photos are characterized by their romantic, timeless aesthetic, blending spontaneous moments with carefully crafted compositions.

To stay current with the latest trends and techniques in photography, I regularly attend workshops and seminars led by industry leaders, and I'm an active member of several professional photography associations. This commitment to continuous learning and professional development ensures that I bring a fresh perspective and innovative approach to each wedding I photograph.

With a deep love for the rich history and stunning architecture of Venice, I bring a unique perspective to wedding photography, capturing not just the moments but the essence of this enchanting city and how it frames each couple's story. Whether it's the intimate exchange of vows or the grandeur of a Venetian ballroom reception, my aim is to deliver a beautiful, honest, and timeless visual narrative that couples will cherish for a lifetime.
