She prepared so many delicious plates […]

We are Florence wedding photographer and Saint Louis wedding photographers, but we travel within the US and globally for wedding photography. Our style is fusion of modern and classic with special attention to fine details and emotions. Inspired by the beautiful colors and religious traditions, we are also specialized and adore shooting Desi weddings. We know how much time and preparation goes into weddings, so we strive to be as flexible as possible. We want, more than anything, to create a photography experience that reflects the unique vision of all our clients.

Born and raised in Italy where I attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome with a master’s degree in Visual Arts. My mother, an art teacher, raised me with brushes, canvas, colors and much more. This was one of my great fortunes! I have participated in more than 60 Fine Art exhibitions, and our weddings have been published in various wedding magazines and blogs. I continue to grow professionally day by day with my husband at my side as Saint Louis wedding photographer.Sonya Lalla biography

I got my first manual 35 mm camera when I was 15. It was for my first photography class in which I learned the basics of photography and dark room developing. When I met my wife in Italy, my passion for photography really blossomed. Today, my goal as a Saint Louis and Dallas wedding photographer is to not only provide you with amazing images, but to help you organize your day as you always dreamed it to be. More than anything, I want you to enjoy your most important day and allow us to make that day live on forever.John
