I’m an Italian Wedding Photographer and a Painter, based in Brussels, and available everywhere.
How can I describe myself? I am a lover, a dreamer, a positive thinker, a slow traveler, a seeker of wisdom and beauty.
I love Wilson, my man, my family, and my friends. Other than that, I love smiling, swimming, singing in the shower, and watching movies on the couch. Also, I love good Italian pizza, sunsets on the beach, and hot, sunny weather. But I’m quite used to Belgian weather, too!
Everybody told me I should choose between painting and wedding photography. But I couldn’t, so I decided to make them work together.
I seek the real, everyday Love that hides in the little things: a smile, a supporting glance, warming up next to someone when it’s freezing out, and all the little imperfections and flaws that make us unique. I seek the kind of love that makes us laugh until we cry, the one that faces obstacles and hard times, that brings out the best in us – but stays with us through the worst – and only grows stronger and deeper.
I myself looked for Love, till I found it (till I found him!). And I look for it everywhere, always, all around me, wherever I go.
What most makes life worth living? I believe Love (and Wedding Photography! and art! and pizza!) is the answer. All the time, I find myself in awe by the synchronicity and by the wonder of coincidences that bring two souls together and wills them to fall in Love – to quote one of my favorite Italian singer, “da far pensare che l’universo l’han fatto apposta perché voi due vi incontraste là” – “it seems that the universe was made on purpose for you two to meet there”.
So that’s why, if I’m not making photography at weddings, you will find me
Up to now, I lived in five different cities, and Brussels won’t probably be the last one.
Also, I am passionate about foreign languages: other than Italian – and a couple of regional dialects 🙂 – I speak English, Spanish, French, a bit of Dutch and German. And I feel very attracted by Greek, Chinese, Arabic and Swahili.
I love to share time and good experiences, I love meeting new people and I adore my Friends. Friendships are as sacred to me as Love. I believe we always meet people for one reason, and there’s always something to learn from anybody. People are wonders, miracles, stars, mirrors…
That’s why I ended up being a Wedding Photographer. Because I love people. And I love them even more when they are happy and in love.
One day, more than ten years ago, I started having a little back ache. After two months, I couldn’t stand anymore.
It hurt like hell, all the time. The cause was a herniated disc. A terrible period of almost two years, with a thousand doctors – one of whom told me to resign myself to not being able to walk anymore. I had to have two surgeries, months of physical therapy, and endure a lot of suffering.
I became hungrier than ever: hungry to see, to look, to explore. To move, to go deep, to honor every part of my body. To always use the time I have in this life at its best. It gave me the strength and courage, to start working for myself, and to finally do only what I love. After this, I began to deeply understand what’s important to me.
I always have a great time when I take pictures of a couple. Crazy in love with my man, every time I meet two lovers, I see myself in them. If you look at me during touching moments of a wedding day, you might see me smiling with little tears in my eyes.
I’m fascinated by the millions of expressions a face can show, by gestures, intimate details, smiles and tears out of authentic emotions.
I love taking spontaneous pictures: reportage and documentary style is my thing, together with street photography and creative portraits. I love to slowly observe and to find beauty and inspiration in the little, hidden things.
