La Dolce Vita is calling you


You found your soulmate, your anima gemella, and it's now time to party like it's 1973, just the way Italians do it! You deserve to celebrate your love in time, and I would be honored to capture those precious moments forever. I am so glad to have you here!


You want your kids to flip the pages of your wedding album like you did your parents, and you want them to see your authentic love. Whether pouring a champagne tower or flying off to Italy (or both!).

Meet Your

Photographer








Relax and take a deep breath, because I’m here to be your wedding day shadow. From adjusting your train to picking bugs out of your veil, I’ll be there to ensure your day unfolds flawlessly.


But beyond the wedding day itself, throughout the planning journey, I stand by your side, working closely with you and your wedding team to make your vision come true!


I always fully immerse myself in each couple's story, crafting moments that resonate uniquely to you.

love notes

"I cannot even believe the work she did and magic that she created for our rehearsal dinner and wedding. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen someone work so hard. From incredible pose directions, to constantly bending over and fluffing my dress, ensuring I looked perfect, to keeping everyone in line, and then giving us incredible photos within 24 hours, the list goes on. I cant express how happy I am with just what I’ve seen so far and she is simply such an incredible photographer."

"I don't even know where to begin with how amazing Simona was. She was the best decision I made for my big day! From day one, her communication was everything. She emailed constantly, texted, and always responded immediately when I had questions. On the day of my wedding, she was the one thing that went absolutely perfect. When taking photos, she made my husband and I feel so comfortable behind the camera, walked us through every pose, and was patient with family photos because everyone wanted one! [...]"

"Simona is a true storyteller! She learned what our visions were and perfectly matched the vibe we envisioned. She made us feel so comfortable and that is very evident in all of our pictures. We can’t praise her candid work enough. She directed us on how to pose but most importantly let us be us. She was so quick to notice special moments & captured them in a beautiful and organic way. Simona was so enthusiastic and fun and hyped us up the entire day! We have incredible portraits for framing and display, and we have so many pictures of all of our guests being in the moment with us. We had numerous guests reach out to us praising Simona and how friendly was! We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect photographer for our day!"

"I highly recommend Simona. We are not from the area, so choosing a photographer for our destination wedding was a big deal! Simona was responsive, detail orientated, and so very kind! Neither one of us were very comfortable in front of the camera, but she made it so easy! Her photography is timeless and we love her work so so much."

Simona is absolutely incredible. I’ve used many videographers + photographers over the years and the quality of her work is far beyond every single one of them. You will not regret booking with her! She shot our wedding and her work was beautiful. We fully intend to book with her at least once a year to capture all of our special occasions. I also want to add that I did not know Simona prior to hiring her for our wedding. She blows all the competition away! I am so glad we decided to choose her business."

Get ready to pop the champagne!


From breathtaking Italy to the heartland of Oklahoma and the charming landscapes of Georgia, I had the pleasure to meet incredible people. And now, you become one of them! Show me your quirks, tell me your dreams, and share your story with me. You and your lover deserve a storyteller who knows you both intimately, capturing your emotions in every frame.

The wedding experience

You found your soulmate; now what?


We will get to check all the items on your to-do list, but for a moment I want you to think of what a day that feels like you feels like.


Here's what to expect from me. A wedding experience that is fun, engaged, and personal!


  1. It all starts with a little form! The first words we'll exchange, the beginning of our partnership, will be through our screens. But it won't be long before you get a ring from me! On the phone, or on zoom, I wanna know everything!
  2. If we are a good fit, like whipped cream on gelato, we'll make it official! I’ll send over a proposal with a contract and retainer invoice. Once those are signed and paid, the real party begins! Expect a little qualcosa (something) from me to you, including super helpful wedding planning resources!
  3. Here's the (second) best part! Your engagement session! We get to shoot in any location you choose, you can wear what you’re comfortable in, and no guests are begging for your attention.
  4. Leading up to the day, I will help you create a detailed timeline for the day, a family formal photo list, and will send you multiple questionnaires to ensure everything runs smoothly.
  5. LET'S GET YOU MARRIED!
  6. Sneak peeks and full gallery will start popping into your inbox before you even know it!
  7. And because your love deserves more than just Instagram likes, I'll help you design a unique wedding album and get you the best quality product!

Feeling like ditching the big traditional wedding? Maybe you're dreaming of an old movie kind of day; running through the fields in France, or eating the best food in Italy, with just your closest people next to you. I was a destination bride as well!! So I get it, you want to have the vendor quality from home, but the trueee Italian experience! I promise I'll pose to you in Italian, and give you the best of both worlds. Best part of all? No. Travel. Fees!!! I spend a good part of the year in Italy, so anywhere in Europe is my backyard. AND you don't have to give up an engagement session, because the rest of the year I am in Savannah, GA. It will be just like getting married at home, but better!
