I’m Chiara. I was born in the South of Italy and I still live here, a special place surrounded by art, history and nature – well, I actually travel a lot for both work and for leisure! When I’m not taking photographs you can find me practicing yoga, watching old movies, experimenting new food tastes. I also love going for long walking discovering places.
I have a degree in art, and I started working as a commercial photographer and visual merchandiser. My studies and my work shaped my tastes, in fact I have a passion for styling and I’m an art and fashion lover. I started photographing weddings in 2012 for an Italian photography studio, then I decided to go alone as a wedding photographer for weddings in Italy and for destination weddings. In a classic Italian style, I have learned to love beauty, to value the details and appreciate life. I’m a great story-listener, and I firmly believe that kindness is the greatest form of beauty. I always try to connect to the world with a creative and generous touch, always with curiosity and sense of humor. I love new projects and collaborating with creative and open-mind people that are in search of uniqueness, freedom and beauty.
My wedding photography and editorial work has been featured in many magazines and on sites, like Harper’s Bazaar Magazine, Brides, Once Wed, Junebug Weddings, Ruffled Blog, Grey Likes Weddings, Fab You Bliss, Looks Like Film, Mia Sposa Magazine and many others.
Zankyou nominated me among the best wedding photographers in Italy for 2018, 2017 and 2016.
“We chose Chiara after seeing her photos and meeting her and we were immediately in tune with her. Chiara with her photographs was able to capture our wedding day just the way we wanted, and she was a part of it! Chiara was completely in the moment, and she created images full of sensitivity. What is essential is invisible to the eye, but sensitive eyes like those of Chiara know how to capture what is happening and return it in wonderful photographs.”
The style: Independent. Empathic. Refined.
To describe my style I use these three words. Independent because I don’t mind following trends, and I don’t want to put my clients or my photography (your photographs!) in a box. Every couple is unique, every event is unique indeed and deserves the best attention to details, no matter the trends. Empathic because I not only work with people, but I live the moment with them. I’m here, with you, in a full immersion in the present moment, following, partecipating and “taking” the day with you – and here and there giving some suggestion when needed. Refined because even if I love documenting the events as they unfold, in a very authentic way, as a wedding photographer I always strive to do something special, creative, elegant, unusual and timeless.
Having me as your wedding photographer
I consider that weddings are a perfect representation of a couple’ story and I feel very lucky and honored to witness to such an important day in an individual’s life. In order to have a wider vision of the their wedding day, my clients usually call me to photograph their wedding for the whole day, from the getting ready to the feast. That allows me to capture different important moments, situations and memories on the day. The photos I take first of all document the day as it unfolds, with a variety of situations and in-between moments: I want that my clients and their guest enjoy the day without concerns about the photography! At the same time, I take in great considerations that this will be a very important and unique day in your lives, and that’s the reason why I love to take some beautiful couple’s portraits and of course family formals (not too much formal anyway!). I will be following you all the time, giving some advice for the best light and angle or some directions when necessary.
If you want to move forward and having me as your wedding photographer, contact me and tell me something about your wedding. Remember to include location and date. I will reply as soon as possible with info and quote. Booking well in advance is recommended since I take a limited amount of weddings per year in order to ensure to my clients the quality their events deserve. I work in Italy and worldwide. We can schedule a Skype call or an appointment in person in Italy.
