Alessandra has been a photographer and essayist since 2001. Based just outside of Philadelphia, PA, she photographs special events, food and wine, and still life both on location and in the studio. Alessandra studied illustration and filmmaking at the Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, GA where she excelled in creative writing and fine arts. Alessandra decided to make a living with photography, "to support my illustration habit," she says, and she has flourished in the industry since, working full time commercially with her beloved client base. 

 

When she isn't traveling, Alessandra loves painting, practicing the piano, and watching espionage films. She enjoys volunteering with TEDxWilmington and Big Brothers Big Sisters of America. She has a writing project in progress that will be turned into a stage performance. Alessandra is always looking for other writers, artists, photographers, filmmakers, and chefs for creative collaboration, or a good wine recommendation.
