I’m way more than just a wedding photographer!!!

Portraits along the way to Santiago de Compostela


It’s been almost a year.

An unexpected year.

A year ago I was just planning what was going to be a simple trip that would totally upset my way of dealing with everything. With life.

I had some monsters and some demons that I wanted to leave along the way.

Framing all this “thing” with the term “trip” is too simplistic. I prefer to describe it as an “EXPERIENCE”


👉🏼 Go give a look at this post if you’re curious to see my report about this trip!!!


I went back to Italy in January.

I was happy.

I was serene.

I was smiling.

I was tired. I kept smiling.

And…as the days passed, while I was taken up by my job, the more I realized that the intensity with which I faced life and problems, was utterly different! 🙂

I was ready to face a decisive season. I really felt I was ready! I had broad and firm shoulders to be able to face any kind of problem, but, obviously, I didn’t have the slightest suspicion that a global pandemic would come and mess up all my plans and goals.

Ok, it will be just a matter of time. I am sure!

This trip really taught me a lot. I believe I will never stop recommending anyone to try this experience at least once in their life.
A journey, alone, far away. In a situation of severe discomfort due to the cold and the difficult conditions that winter brings with it.

In any case, I decided to force myself and to force my shyness by asking for a portrait of many of the people I met along my path.

I assure you that I have met hundreds of truly wonderful people. Each one with a different story. I listened to a lot. I’ve heard stories from so many countries around the world and it’s been great. Just great!!!

Every single person you see in these photos has given me so much that I will probably never be able to show how grateful I am to them!!! 😊


Actually, it was very tough, at least at the beginning. Then it became fun. Now it continues to remain difficult and fun at the same time.

Asking a complete stranger to take a picture of him/her is not a simple thing and, trust me, it cannot be improvised…


I can’t wait to repeat this kind of experience. I had taken it as homework to do, along with all the other tasks and along with the time I took to have fun.

Now I hope you like it and I’ll be more than happy to hear from you all 🖤
