My love for photography started in my early teens, thanks to my parents who have always been using a reflex to document the history of my family and taught me the value of this art to capture the most important memories in people’s life.
After the degree in foreign languages I studied photography at Centro Sperimentale Televisivo in Rome and I regularly attend workshops and seminars in Italy and abroad to develop my skills in reportage and portrait and to keep myself up to date.
My interest for wedding documentary photography comes from the desire to catch long lasting memories for my clients in one of their most important days in their lives. My mission is to tell their intimate story by capturing evocative and fleeting moments through which their own personality, natural beauty and attitude will shine. I document events as they naturally occur, focusing on spontaneous emotions and details, shooting discreetly, without interfering or creating artificial poses - apart from a small set of group and portrait shots if requested.
Besides shooting weddings, I love portraits (especially family, maternity and children portraits) and on stage photography. Coming from still photography background, I learned how to focus on the climax moments and the absolute importance of light.
I am based in Basilicata and in Rome, but I shoot weddings with my husband Daniele throughout the Italian territory, for both Italian couples and international ones who pick our country for their destination wedding. We love travels, different cultures and foreign languages (I speak English, Spanish, French and German).

Dear Olga, when we saw the wedding photos for the first time we could not avoid the emotion! You were able to grasp the essence of our love, joy, and happiness, of our loved ones and friends. with extreme discretion and great professionalism, you accompanied us on the "best day"! Our story could not have been more beautiful than this, we would like to have an album of 400 pages so as not to leave out of the shots. Congratulations indeed for the professionalism, but also for the kindness, gentleness, and love you put into your work, the photos also speak about you. Mirko & Nicoletta

Ana Claudia & Gianmarco
Dear Olga, You were so thoughtful since the beginning and were able to understand exactly what we were looking for! At the end, you have managed to capture every single emotion of our wedding. We were very comfortable in your presence (and so were our guests). You were incredibly discreet and made sure not to disturb any of the events that went on during that day but still succeeded in capturing them all with your unique view. We are very pleased with the photos taken in both our wedding and the photo shoot done the morning after. The shots are so natural and full of emotion, just like the wedding itself. I would recommend you with my eyes closed!
