If you're reading this and made it this far is because you and I have a lot in common. We are adventurers, explorers, and seekers. We’re searching for something more—something bigger, grander, and more beautiful than we’ve ever known before.
My work is driven by an endless search for something that means more than just producing glossy and passing images. I want to capture that which endures.
As an artist, I devoted my life to my craft. I was born and raised in Milan (Italy), and I spent my early years exploring all sorts of fine arts, pulling inspiration from classic movies, painters, fashion magazines and also the beautiful landscapes around me.
After graduating top in my class, at the Nuova Accademia Di Belle Arti, I went to pursue my own career as a wedding and editorial photographer and that journey, 5 years ago, has brought me to Los Angeles in the US where I established my business and specialized in destination weddings, fashion editorials, and fine art.
For the last 5 years, I had the privilege of documenting adventurous, exceptional couples, like you, as they celebrate their journeys and take their relationships to deeper levels of commitment, exploration, and enduring love.
I’m devoted to my art, but I value your experience above all. You’re searching for photography with meaning, images that capture you at your best. I am too. I look forward to being your guide, as we join together to create timeless, artistic heirlooms for you and the people you love.
