Meet Sonya in Florence

I am a wedding and portrait photographer based in Florence. After completing my Master's in Fine Arts, I started working professionally in the photography industry. My style is fine art/editorial and I compose elegant and timeless stories spontaneously, but also with posed images. My work has been published on many famous blogs, including The Knot, Harper's Bazaar Travel and South Asian Bride.

Three Things

  1. I love traveling with my husband John, exploring new cultures, and having a coffee or tea with my friends and chatting for a long, looong time.
  2. I cannot live without chocolate. I am definitely a chocoholic.
  3. My friends and family tell me that I'm a bit goofy. I also use my hands a lot when I speak, just like any good Italian.

Favourite Place to Shoot in Florence

I love to capture memories in the historical center surrounded by art, history and beauty.

" I booked Sonya to capture my Florence proposal and she was so helpful at every step of the way.  She made some useful suggestions using her inside knowledge and coordinated with people in Italy for me.  She was also so helpful on the day by providing great artistic direction and code words for when to start the proposal etc. The most important part is, of course, the photos and me and my now fiancée were blown away by how awesome they were.  Sonya captured every moment and we now have the most wonderful memento of such an important day in our lives." -Ed
