Certain places seem to exist mainly for the happiness of the people who live in them. Florence is one of those places.
Florence, the city of my dreams. The mere mention of its name warms and delights my heart.
With their ornate facades and intricate details, the buildings appear to have been plucked straight from a Renaissance painting. Each structure tells a story, bearing witness to the city's long history and cultural significance.
But it's not just the architecture that makes Florence so alluring. Its galleries, churches, and museums are filled with art. As I stand in front of Michelangelo's David, I am struck by its sheer brilliance. It's as if he's alive before my eyes, the way the light falls on his chiseled features and the intricate details of his muscles and veins. And it's not just David; every piece of art in Florence tells a story, inviting the viewer to become a part of it.
I am reminded of the great minds who once walked these streets as I walk through the city. Galileo, Dante, da Vinci, and Botticelli all lived in Florence at some point, leaving their imprint on the city in some way. The intellectual and artistic vitality that once marked these streets can still be felt today.
Florence is special for more than just its history and art. It's also the people. Florentines are friendly and welcoming, always ready with a smile or greeting. They are proud of their city and eager to show it off to visitors.
The setting sun casts a warm glow over the Arno River from Piazzale Michelangelo, I am filled with gratitude. Florence has captivated me in a way that no other city has, leaving an indelible mark on my heart. This is not just a place. It is an immersive experience that reaches deep into the soul, stirring the heart.
I travel the globe photographing life’s important events, weddings, and editorial shoots. I care deeply for each couple's love story as a worthy and unique piece of art. My photography is intimate and fashion-forward, with a painterly old-world charm, and infused with meaning and a sense of purpose.
I serve discerning clients from over 20 countries, and also teach remarkable photographers all over the world, aiming to inspire a new generation of artists to build thriving brands and use their Art as a platform for positive change.
My work stems from an overwhelming desire to advocate for empathy, empowerment, and the spreading of kindness. I hope that by showing all the goodness that exists in the world, I might help make the world a bit better, ever so slightly, because I can imagine nothing more powerful than two humans in love!
