Elopements are becoming a more  common choice made by couples who these days just want to celebrate their union in a different, personal, intimate and often simpler way.


Being an Italian and slightly wild romantic myself, I just love the idea of a couple running away from the pressure and stress often involved in the organisation of a more traditional wedding. 


My style varies depending on what you would like, the location, and most importantly the personalities of the people I photograph. 


If  you are looking for a photographer who would like to "Run Away" with you for a couple of hours to record your very special ceremony of choice and would like to have a chat to know more about how I work or what I can offer, get in touch, send me a wee  email.

It is important to choose the right photographer for "you", so look around, ask, get in touch with a few photographers whose work you like, and eventually you will find the perfect person to have around on your very special day!

They just wanted a few pictures to show their families back home and to put in a small book they were going to make themselves. 

Just the kind of service I am very happy to offer.
