I'm Ilaria. I'm italian and lived in the UK for 18 years. Now based in Manchester, I moved up north in October 2019 (for love <3).
I'm not a traditional photographer so beside the group/family photos part of the day everything else is approached completely freely, relaxed and focused on the natural moments during the day. If you are looking for staged, posed, arranged and theatrical style photos I'm not the photographer for you, and that's ok :-)
If you are looking for non-intrusive, natural and in the moment photography then I can't wait to meet you! If you want your day to be documented in an organic and candid way then I'm your girl. If you value photography as a way to capture your most special memories, then we are the perfect fit.
Get in touch if you'd like to have a chat or to request more info, I look forard to hearing from you!

Everything we ever hoped for....
We couldn’t thanks ilaria enough for our beautiful wedding pictures! From the day that we started to message her to shoot our wedding day she was such a caring person, instantly made us feel so comfortable! It was defiantly one of the easiest decisions I made when planning our wedding and I knew that they would be amazing pictures! All the time leading up to the wedding Ilaria kept in touch witch was great! The day of the wedding she was the easiest person to be around, she made us all feel so so comfortable and fitted right in! It was a pleasure to have her share our big day! Can’t say me and my husband to be at the time are the most posiest of people so it was great when Ilaria caught such natural shots! I mean we had to strike a pose but she made us laugh a lot and it made it such an easy thing to do! We lived so many pictures we couldn’t cut them down enough so we extended our album! Timings of sending pictures were on point I couldn’t believe how fast she done them! Such a wonderful person honestly couldn’t recommend her enough! Thank you for everything Ilaria! We wish you all the beat in your career and thank you for capturing our very special day! Much love Mr and Mrs Tabeche xxSent on 01/10/2019

Beautiful Natural Photography
Ilaria has a beautiful way of capturing those special moments that take your breath away. I first met Ilaria in 2018 when I booked her for my September wedding, she was the only photographer who made you feel like a friend rather than a business acquaintance. We got to know each other and Ilaria showed me the kind of work she produces and we were simply blown away by how naturally beautiful her pictures were. Our engagement shoot was scary for us, as both my husband and I do not like being in front of the camera but somewhere Ilaria managed to makes us look relaxed and natural. The wedding was captured beautifully with every detail caught on camera. We can’t thank Ilaria enough for making our memories the best they can be. If you are looking to book Ilaria, have no hesitation, she is a wonderful person who will go above and beyond on your special day.Sent on 04/10/2019
I was someone who was very nervous for having photos taken , felt not very photogenic and also thought how good could photos really be. But as the groom I have to say I was really pleased with Ilaria, she made me feel really relaxed when taking the photos and she manged to get our photos back really quickly to us so we could use them for our Thankyou cards and they looked amazing. We constantly get friends and family members say how fantastic our photos look.Sent on 28/09/2019
