I am a wedding and portrait photographer in Florence with a Master's in Fine Arts. My style is a fusion of modern and classic. I compose stories spontaneously, but also with posed photos. The result is elegant and timeless images. My work has been published on many famous blogs, including The Knot 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 definitively 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  
I love to capture memories in the historical centers surrounded by art, history and beauty.
