I'm living the life I've always wanted! I bold in pursuing my passions and the things I am interested in. Travel & Photography!

Traveling for me puts things into perspective. It allows me to realize that there are far bigger things that my problems and photography allows me to immortalize moments, emotions, people and places.

Based in Playa del Carmen, Mexico but born and raised in Italy.

In 2006 I began the incredible adventure of being a wedding photographer for friends in Italy. In April 2010 I moved to Playa del Carmen, Mexico. I've been shooting professionally since 2012.

I'm an award-winning member of Wedding & Portrait Photographers International and my work has been published in publications such as “Destination I Do magazine”, “Destination Weddings and Honeymoons Abroad” in UK and I was named as one of the twenty best wedding photographers in the Riviera Maya.

In 2016 I have achieved the official designation of a Wedding and Portrait International Certified Photographer / WPPIC.

Tell us a bit about yourself...

I live, eat and breath weddings!

I'm obsessed with photography. I spend my days working, learning, editing and searching the Internet for all things, for new trends and creative wedding ideas.

I love sports, also the extreme ones! I love music and dance! I am a good Cook and make delicious pasta, pizza, cakes and desserts.

I currently live in Playa del Carmen and I find Mexico incredibly stimulating, I think Riviera Maya has amazing opportunities in everything especially for my job.

I love people and my goals is to create photos and capture emotions, that my clients will cherish forever !

Why did you choose to become a photographer?

In 3 words: Trust, Passion, Change!

The desire to do what you really want with passion and love. The achievement that will bring great satisfaction, value and inspiration to life.

A lot of the time life is not easy, relationships are not easy. It’s not easy to stay disciplined or focused or physically fit. It’s not easy to manage dozens of conflicting priorities. When you choose to deal with life’s challenges and difficulties as they come, you are able to transform them. You have the opportunity to transform those ups and downs, those frustrations, discomforts and inconveniences into genuine fulfillment.

How long have you been a photographer?

In 2006 I was the wedding photographer for a couple of friends in Italy. In April 2010 I moved to Playa del Carmen, Mexico. to a dream come true and start the adventure of being a real professional photographer.

Starting my own business, in March 2012, has been one of the best decisions I ever made in my life.

How would you classify your style of photography?

My style of photography is glamorous and fashionable, yet classic and natural at the same time.

Who or what are some of your influences on either a personal or professional level?

My wedding influence is Jerry Ghionis, Rocco Ancora, Ryan Schembri, Yervant, Marcus Bell, Ben Chrisman for wedding photography. Steve McCurry for contemporary photography. From the old school Ansel Adams for black&white landscape, Cartier-Bresson and William Klein and Robert Doisneau.

Do you have any good wedding stories?

Oh! Each wedding is a good story! Ceremonies are full of emotions! I can remember every story and every client.

What's your preferred type of camera equipment?

Canon, because I've always used that one! (I have also tried Nikon, it's a great camera!)

What would you recommend for a couple just starting their search for a wedding photographer?

"Bride,Groom...you will probably spend more time with your photographer on your wedding day than with any other single person. You really do want to select a photographer with a personality that will make all this 'being together" as comfortable as possible! Just look at the way he or she communicates with you. Is he/she patient? Friendly?Do you feel comfortable with him or her?

Any fun personal facts we should know about you?

I have a great personality and sense of humour. I'm very honest and passionate in my life. I'm creative, professional and kindest. Working with me is funny, trust me! and what else?! I am a Scorpio and the rest is a surprise!
