We’re a couple in life and work, we’re in love with each other, with photography, genuine people and their stories.
We live in Northern Italy, in a small village in the surroundings of Turin, with our daughter, Olivia, and our two amazing cats, Daisy and Aris. We’re just two guys next door, with big dreams and great expectations.
Whenever we can, we like to travel and soak in the atmosphere of other places, be it by walking the streets of big cities or small picturesque towns, or by breathing fresh, regenerating air in nature, in the middle of nowhere. In our travels or just in our free time, one can easily find us exploring antique shops and flea markets. We simply cherish things with a history, because the past and our experiences define who we are in the “now moment”.
There is no ordinary love.
Thus, through our images and our storytelling we always seek the extraordinary in the ordinary. Those unique little gestures and vibrations which make you stand apart from everybody else. Therefore, we generally focus on the natural interaction between the two of you and we enhance it with a few hints when necessary. We document your story as it unfolds in front of our eyes, with a balanced mix of candids and stolen moments, powerful portraits and beautifully styled details.
Our ultimate goal is to embed your memories in a harmonious narrative through sophisticated, intimate and joyous images.
We truly believe that photographs are tangible memories, emissaries of the past, evoking moments and feelings, even after years and years.
They are so very similar to Proust’s “madeleines”, capable of triggering the memories of the heart:
“…when from a long-distant past nothing subsists, after the people are dead, after the things are broken and scattered, still, alone, more fragile, but with more vitality, more unsubstantial, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long time, like souls, ready to remind us, waiting and hoping for their moment, amid the ruins of all the rest; and bear unfaltering, in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence, the vast structure of recollection.” (“Remembrance of Things Past”, by Marcel Proust)
We can’t wait to get to know you!
