I love shooting weddings because I love being surrounded by people. I am a very empathic person, so being around happy people on one of the most meaningful days of their lives is always an incredible honor for me. I want to feel the emotions you feel and turn them into photographs, while always making sure your beauty and truer selves can shine in the process.
My first wedding as a second photographer dated back to 2011 when I was studying languages at the university. Back then, I was more useful as an interpreter than an actual photographer, but I fell in love with that world and I decided I wanted it to become my profession. My very first weddings as a solo photographer happened in 2013, and so many things have changed during these years!
After years of shooting mostly with local couples, in 2017 I decided to open my business to a larger scale. I opened my own Studio, ManiSol Wedding, and I continued on my own as well. I speak four languages and I love to travel, so I realized the Destination Wedding field was perfect for me. Now I have shot weddings all over Italy and around the world, in Europe, the United States, and Indonesia. Witnessing so many different types of weddings, hundreds of different ceremonies, venues, and cultures gives me the chance to have a fresh view of the wedding days every time.
What I love the most about Destination Weddings is that I am able to meet so many different types of people, different religions, cultures, and upbringings. I get to understand so much about the world and feel a deep connection with so many different people. This is so empowering and energizing, definitely what I love the most about my job. I still work with Italian couples as well – what I think I can provide as the added value is the knowledge of working with a broader vision, something I have learned through my destination wedding business.
I am very proud to say that some of my works have been published by the most important magazines and directories of the industry, such as Style Me Pretty, JuneBug Weddings and the HuffPost. It is a great honor for me and an incredible acknowledgment of the whole road I have walked so far.
This is my Wedding Photographer Italy Portfolio, but I do shoot weddings all around the world as well. And I love it!
