I have always wondered whether this great love of mine began in one precise moment: this photo was taken many years ago by my uncle who was a photographer and it is thanks to him and to his father, a cameraman, that I discovered the magical world of photography.
Maybe it was written in the stars….
In 1986 I secured my first job as assistant to an eminent photographer at the historic Grand Hotel in Rome (nowadays the St Regis Grand). It was an event organized by Gianni Agnelli and Henry Kissinger.
After about eight years I opened my own photography studio and from that day, through the photographs I take, my customers relive their emotions: the bride walking into the church and the groom brimming with emotion as he waits at the altar of the church of San Pietro in Montorio, or Santa Sabina, San Giorgio in Velabro, San Giovanni e Paolo al Celio, Santa Cecilia. After the ceremony, the excitement continues with the guests. Part of the joy of marriage is its celebration in stunning locations such as Villa Miani, Villa Aurelia, Villa Medici, the Crescentia castle, the Odescalchi Castle or in private houses etc. Sharing this most special day with the bride and groom is not a simple matter, the photographer’s sensitivity and professional competence need to merge into a figure which is both discrete and reassuring.
Fixing one moment in a single shot is in my opinion the utmost expression of my work and of my great passion.
