MY JOURNEY trough FASHION and WEDDINGS 


    For the past 15 years, I have been immersed in the world of photography, beginning my journey in the fashion industry, which has always been my passion. I hold a degree in Fashion and Visual Arts. My interest in photography was sparked not by the medium itself but by its capacity to evoke atmospheres, sensations, emotions, and realms both real and imagined, all revolving around the concept of beauty—a powerful value that influences everything I do.

    Throughout my career, I've collaborated on research publications in fashion, traveled extensively, organized several exhibitions, and worked with art magazines, enriching my experience and perspective. For the last decade, I've dedicated myself to wedding photography and filmmaking, frequently traveling to Arab countries such as Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, and primarily Bahrain. In these countries, I've had the honor of working closely with esteemed colleague Loredana Mantello for the Bahraini royal family, merging my artistic vision with the unique narratives of those I photograph.

    In 2020, I expanded my horizons by completing a master's in coaching, specializing in personal branding. Today, I continue to work as a coach for wedding planners and photographers, helping them to hone their craft and build their brands. My journey reflects a commitment to capturing beauty and emotion in every frame, and guiding others to find their voice and vision in the vibrant world of photography.


Exploring
UNIQUENESS and IDENTITY
through the lens 


    Throughout my career, my personal projects have consistently focused on the quest for uniqueness and identity, with a particular emphasis on women. My profound passion for psychology and personal growth has always guided my work, positioning photography as a reflective mirror that facilitates discovery, understanding, and the deep exploration of emotions.


Mirrors and women have remained my favorite subjects, driving me to venture beyond my comfort zone and suspend judgment. This avenue of personal research and work has evolved into a means through which I assist others in realizing their projects, marrying photography and coaching. 

This unique approach has grown into a powerful tool that I use to support individuals in bringing their visions to life. By integrating photography with coaching, I've developed "Valentemente," a project dedicated to harnessing these mediums for personal and creative empowerment. Sharing this aspect of my journey on my site reflects not only my professional evolution but also my dedication to fostering growth and self-discovery through my work. It highlights how I use my art to connect with others on a deeper level, enabling them to see and explore their own reflections and stories in new, empowering ways.

Photography is a powerful medium for rediscovering one's image and identity, and for making one's dreams endure through time.

Martino and Halo studio absolutely exceeded my expectations. His professionalism and artistry are unmatched, and my husband and I could not be happier with our selection for the wedding. Having planned the event in the United States I was a little anxious when I got to Italy and finally met the team on our wedding day, those fears quickly vanished as I watched him effortless capture the days moments. I almost forgot he was even there working his magic as he navigated the venue. Once I received my wedding video (ahead of schedule!) I was even more thrilled! Martino made a masterpiece of the most important day of my life all within a matter of minutes! The video incorporated a variety of moments and seamlessly transitioned while perfectly telling our story. Most impressive was the use of the drone to get exceptional footage. I did not even notice that a drone was in use and was shocked by the angles it provided. Martino was also very responsive and attentive to my inquiries throughout the process. My husband and I could not recommend Martino and Halo Studios more, I promise that they are the only choice when selecting a videographer. Look no further for the best because Halo is truly a blessing!

If I could give more than five stars I would!There are so many reasons why we are happy with Halo Studio and would recommend them to anyone.First of all, communication was always clear and easy, so even though we were organizing our wedding from another continent we never worried about Martino and Valentina having understood what we needed.Secondly, on our wedding their work did not in any way interrupt the flow of the day, in fact Martino and Valentina were great at putting everyone at ease, and all our guests loved having them around. There was no awkwardness whatsoever, which helped us look natural and relaxed.Last but not least, the pictures and video are stunning! They exceeded our expectations, and our expectations were quite high to begin with. We showed them at our second reception and received so many compliments about them!In short, if you are considering hiring Martino and Valentina for your pictures and videos, do it!

I could not be happier with how our video turned out! Martino caught so many amazing moments that I will cherish forever. The video blew every expectation I had out of the water. He is truly so talented! Martino provided limited direction and let us be entirely in the moment, capturing beautiful candid moments. I would recommend Halo Studios and Martino to anyone!
