“Beatrice has a phenomenal eye for detail and composition. There is nothing flat, 2-dimensional or expected in her work. Instead there are full stories being told by her images, with little details captured that sometimes surprise you.
The photographic style she employs is very editorial IMO; the kind of candid portraiture that conveys the true mood of the moment instead of something more sterile and “posed.” If you trust Beatrice, and it is easy to do so because of her very friendly, patient, and soft spoken nature, then she will do the rest.
Being American and getting married in Lucca is not always easy with the language barriers, distance, and time zone difference. Shopping vendors can take time and a lot of research. Beatrice made the process as easy as possible from her end — always professional and responsive and very reassuring.
My now-husband was not thrilled to have photos taken as he generally does not enjoy “posing” or being the center of attention. Beatrice made him feel very comfortable and we often forgot that she was there, although she managed not to miss a single important detail while maintaining her distance. My husband loves the photos from our wedding and he feels that Beatrice captured us individually, together as a couple, and the gravity of our marriage in such an authentic and visually stunning way. We couldn’t be happier with the outcome of Beatrice’s work and we can’t recommend Beatrice enough. Whether you’re being married in Italy or beyond, Beatrice will not disappoint! GRAZIE MILLE, CARA BEATRICE!!!

“Bea is just magic! Even though our correspondence was via email, Bea took her time to get to know us, what we like as a couple and why we loved her work. Bea’s style and creativeness is second to none. These are not just wedding pictures, these are art! Seeing the photos has bought back every emotion and feeling from the day & to have captured these in pictures with her ‘fly on the wall’ approach is so special. Bea thank you so much for capturing our special day”

“For Rich and I, Beatrice hit a spot in our hearts with her photos that I don’t believe anyone else could’ve done. From her first email, she stated “I love love” and that right there is what made this one of the best days of my life. Beatrice loves photography and the final photos we ended up receiving radiate that love. The passion she has for her work is beyond compare to any of the other photographers that replied to my initial email. I would highly recommend her to anyone in or visiting Italy if you are looking for a caring, kind, compassionate photographer who is willing to work with your schedule, wants to make the time you have with her about you, and wants you to be comfortable in and with the finished product that you receive. Our photos are amazing, and I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day. I am beyond grateful to Beatrice for capturing the proposal memories in photos, and they are beyond what I could ever have hoped for. Thanks again for everything!”

“We can’t say enough how incredible Beatrice is both her photography talent and her personality. She made us feel very comfortable in front of the camera, and encouraged us to be ourselves. (Matt) My goal was to make the proposal something we can remember forever. Bea captured our emotions and love beautifully with her photography. I am so impressed with her artistic eye to frame the perfect photo, and use natural light. We glided through the enchanted grounds of San Galgano, dancing and kissing as Bea found the best places and angles to photograph. She has true talent and vision. Anyone who takes photos with her will be truly lucky. I don’t think anyone would have been able to take pictures of these moments as well as she did. (Becky) I look at them several times a day with a huge smile on my face because I am so beyond happy with the pictures and the experience. We can’t thank her enough and wish she could be there for every big moment in our lives. Thank you SO much, Beatrice!!!”

“Hi Bea, these are absolutely wonderful! Kelli and I just sat down to go through them all and we couldn’t be happier! The photos on the stairs and the close-ups of the ring and the photos inside the church. It’s all perfect.Our parents are also thrilled with the video on Facebook. As you can see, everyone is in love with the story! You did a wonderful job. It’s so much fun to walk back through the proposal, moment by moment. Each picture telling it’s own story! Also, thank you so much for getting to the church early to practice and plan the shots. It clearly paid off once we arrived!We cannot thank you enough for these photos! We are currently planning which ones to frame and which ones will get put on canvas and which ones will get sent out to family members. It’s all very exciting! We’ll cherish these forever. FROM the relatives’couple: Mum: This is WONDERFUL! I feel like was there as well at this important time in your lives. What a BEAUTIFUL way to share with family and friends these very special moments. Thank you. Sister: How beautiful! Tears will not stop rolling down my face. Hey world….that’s my little brother. Dad: Mom and I are so proud of you both. Classy job memorializing the event for all of us to share”
