Me after every wedding I shoot: “This has been my absolute favorite and I can’t wait to edit it” The truth is that each one is different, each couple has a different story, a different temperament, a different style. And that’s one of the 60391756 things I love about this job, being in contact with diverse people that, still, all love my work. And I love them.

Swipe to see it come to life ➡️ I got inspired by the GIF’s king aka @henrysdiary and I made my first one - of many to come. Yesterday was the perfect day, the couple drove from LA to elope to the city hall in San Francisco with just a small party which was as rad as them. And yes, he’s wearing a kilt to honor her Scottish bride. * * * * * #sanfranciscocityhallwedding#sanfranciscoweddingphotographer#bayareaweddingphotographer#norcalweddingphotographer#sanfranciscoelopementphotographer#bayareaelopementphotographer#norcalelopementphotographer#belovedstories#dirtybootsandmessyhair#photobugcommunity#authenticlovemag#moodyweddingphotographer#lookslikefilmweddings#greenweddingshoes#wedventuremag#sutrobaths#sutrobathswedding

If you’re eloping to the San Francisco city hall, pick a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday for your ceremony to find it almost empty - aka better photos (but in December, that Christmas tree makes the place always crowded 🙄) * * * * * #sanfranciscocityhallwedding#bayareaelopementphotographer#sanfranciscoelopementphotographer#norcalelopementphotographer#bayareaweddingphotographer#sanfranciscoweddingphotographer#norcalweddingphotographer#sonyalphaphotographer#cityhallelopement#sanfranciscocityhallelopement

#hairgoals, am I right? She’s also the best hairstylist I have ever met. Taught me how to take care of my curls with natural products and different styling techniques. You can get an appointment with her at @goldieandbob in Denver, @wabisabibeauty in San Francisco and @pony.studios in Oakland. * * * * * * #sanfranciscoportraitphotographer#bayareaportraitphotographer#norcalportraitphotographer#sonyalphaphotographer#italianportraitphotographer#introvertportrait#introvertportraitphotographer#curlyhair#curlyhairgoals

I need to start this week with lots of love. Next week my hub is leaving for work for 12 days, then be back for 10 and leave again for 20 to go back to Italy to visit family. But at least he’s gonna be back for our 6 years anniversary 🥰 So, please recommend me some addictive Netflix/Hbo series to avoid loneliness 🤪 ———— Flowers: @thefloralloft Dress: @chiarabonilapetiterobe Shoes: @jimmychoo Hair and makeup: @quissy

Details. Couples (well, mostly brides) spend money and time choosing them and it’s important that you remember them all. That’s why I love to start shooting as soon as possible so I have time to portray them as much as I can while chatting with you before putting my camera into your face 😊 * * * * * #weddingdetails#jimmychoo#weddingshoes#sanfranciscocityhallwedding#sanfranciscocityhallelopement#bayareaweddingphotographer#sanfranciscoweddingphotographer#norcalweddingphotographer#bayareaelopementphotographer#sanfranciscoelopementphotographer#norcalelopementphotographer#italianweddingphotographer#italianelopementphotographer#sonyalphafemale#sonyalphaphotographer

Editing this wedding was so much fun! I don’t know how some photographers can use editing companies, to me that makes 55% of my style. And I love seeing a good photo become something beautiful under my eyes 🥰 Are you the same?? ———— Makeup and hairstyle by @quissy Flowers by @thefloralloft Dress by @chiarabonilapetiterobe

Back in December with a 3-4 months old puppy it took me weeks to edit a session. Now @aria.theminidachshund is 6.5 months and I learnt that if I take her to the park and we hike for at least one hour in the morning, she basically nap and chill all day long - and I can stay at my pc for hours without having to obsessively take care of her. Someone said to me that having a puppy is same as having a baby - and I think it could really be in the first few months, especially if you stay with them 24/7 like I do! Do you have both a dog and a baby and can tell me the truth so I can get ready? 😅

If you saw my story yesterday night, you have a vague idea of how amazing that styled shoot was - believe me, you haven’t seen anything yet! So it’s quite embarrassing publishing this so simple black and white session I quickly shot before the complete dark. But still, I love how it came out and it’s a good memory of our day together. ———— Bouquet and styling: @eight_weddingco Makeup and hair: @amlmakeup (love this girl so much) Couple: @sergioalcalaphoto And @eatlikeyouloveyourself

Right now I’m fighting the desire to delete my entire feed and start it fresh with this session. A month and a half with no photography sessions - and a ton of time spent voting on the @shootandshare contest - made me realize how my editing style wasn’t exactly what I wanted and that my gear was missing something. So new camera with a completely new - for me - lens and new editing style. But I wasn’t sure about the result until yesterday night when my best friend, her fiancée and I went hiking these pretty - and very muddy, very @dirtybootsandmessyhair - hills and started taking pics among the cows. And I think I have never been so happy about the result of a session. Can’t wait to see what’s coming next.
