I’m a photographer, and for that I give joyful thanks to the universe
I’ve always seen photography as a life choice, because it’s what makes me feel most free in the world. My imprinting happened years ago, when I was delighted by the sight of the early morning light, perfect sunlight reflected on a view at the golden hour, a drop of dew on a blade of grass in May, a baby’s smile, the expressions on the faces of passers-by. All the emotions I saw around me with my own eyes, I wanted to catch with a lens; I saw life as a series of frames. From then on I knew that what I wanted to do was express myself through light and emotions, and be a photographer.
Photography the essence of me
My early experience with lenses, films and camera obscura date back to my higher education in art. Subsequently, I’ve continued to combine my photography with studying. My degree in Economics of Art gave me a practical and analytical approach to the world of expression and beauty, and working as a wedding planner for more than 12 years, having had an atelier for wedding gowns, have taken me increasingly towards the field that has been my home for many years: marriage. I bring to my photography all my successes and life experience.
Through light and colour
Photography is about writing and speaking using light, and light is the origin of all colour. It’s light that designs the scene, the atmosphere and the people: you always have to know how to read it, interpret it, but, more than anything, you have to know how to look for it. In fact, I could call myself a “light catcher”, because in photography, as in my life, I’ve always been on a quest for light, the kind of light that warms the heart.
With my heart in Vicenza and eyes on the world
My roots are in America and Ireland, but I was born and brought up in Vicenza, a minor treasure chest of the Italian Renaissance that’s home to the architectural gems of Andrea Palladio, treasures that are the envy of the world, and which have always inspired me to look beyond the horizons of my beautiful city.
I was born to be a wedding planner,
and that’s why I feel at home here
Well yes, the world of weddings really is home to me, because I’ve been a wedding and event planner for over 12 years, with my own company to take care of the organisation, coordination and management of every detail of the big day. I’ve made dreams come true and, even though every wedding is different in its own way, I’m familiar with the timings, dynamics and moods, allowing me to anticipate the moments that turn real life into pure magic .
created by the golden evening light
I’ve talked about light and its importance in my photography, but I haven’t told you about the light I love best and look for in my images: it’s the evening light, which illuminates everything and envelops your movements and expressions in gold. It’s the light of the painters, the light of eternal sunsets that makes faces and smiles radiant and glowing with real magic. Come with me, and we’ll walk together in the beautiful light of the golden hour.
