ABOUT ME

           

          I’m Ellie, an award-winning documentary photographer specialized in destination weddings, elopement and editorial.

          Telling love through pictures is my job, photography is my day to day life and travel is my lifestyle and my true passion.  I live in Italy and I’m ready to follow you even across the world.

          Empathy and Alchemy.

          My work is about telling stories, about entering people’s private lives and describing their purest and deepest emotions with discretion, rigor and feeling. In love with love, sincere feelings, authentic people, I look for the authenticity of a moment.

          Destination wedding Photographer, more than a job

          I’m a dreamer, a traveller and I love what I do. I’ve travelled to over 20 countries, spent time living in New York City and now I’m back in Italy.

          I have a passion for travelling and telling stories around the world; I can travel anywhere my clients ask me to go.

          I love taking candid pictures of people, playing with natural light, capturing special moments in a natural way and taking care of the details that make the visual story of each wedding unique.

          I tell your Amore on tiptoe

          My Style
          Natural and romantic

          The relationship between me and the couple that chooses me is not only a professional one; we usually establish a closer relationship that gives me the opportunity to better understand the tastes of the couple and who they are, so that their wedding day and their memories of it will be perfect.

          My style is a mix of photojournalism and editorial: it is natural, contemporary, intimate and romantic.
          I observe, I feel what you feel, I capture real moments, I speak of true feelings through my photographs…Nothing is staged, there are no poses.

          Photojournalism is the documentation of real moments. This style is all about telling a story. The photographer is an observer and will capture candid, emotional, natural moments without setting them up, without instructing the subject or staging the scene.

          I really enjoy documenting all the range of emotions you experience on your special day. Not all of us are used to being in front of a camera or are models – that doesn’t matter; that’s not what we’re looking for. We want to capture the beauty of your love, so you should feel wonderful during your photoshoot.

          Photography and me. That’s Amore

          I was ten when I fell in love with photography. It was summer when my parents gave me a small camera and, after that moment, I spent my time taking picture to my little friends. I still remember how much I was excited waiting for my films to be developed. Maybe my love for photography rose up during those awaited days and in that moment I decided to become a professional photographer.

          Ten years later, I graduated in photography from the Istituto Europeo di Design, in Turin. After that I took a Master’s degree in Visual Storytelling from the International Center of Photography of New York.
          I travelled trough more than 20 nations telling stories from all over the world.

          I’m also an award-winning fine art and documentary photographer based in Italy. My work has been published in international magazines and has been exhibited in art galleries in New York, Miami, Berlin and Italy.
