Reviews from my clients

I can’t tell you how much the reviews from my clients are important for me. When I receive one on my Facebook page, on google or WeddingWire, I’m so excited to read what my couples have to say about me. I believe that this is also very helpful to understand how I work and how is the experience to have me as your photographer. And to be honest, who doesn’t like to receive love letters??? Thank you so much to take time to write these reviews for me, I appreciate and feel grateful for each word.


Peggy was the most wonderful Elopement Photographer!

My husband and I flew to Lake Como to take wedding photos. Not only did Peggy give me amazing recommendations for other vendors, like floral, she also helped me find a great location to take our photos. Peggy was timely and SO professional. We had an amazing time with her. She is warm and so much fun. We were instantly comfortable with her, and she did a magical job, keeping us laughing and catching some beautiful moments on camera. Our photo album is beyond anything we could have imagined. Every photo in our album is just stunning, and she captured our joy on camera. She was truly exquisite to work with – we cannot recommend her enough!!!

Peggy has such a cute personality & made our day so fun honestly!

Peggy – when I saw our full gallery, I was in tears! Each photo captured on our special day was breathtaking and I love how our emotions are so beautifully reflected in each one of them. These pictures are a representation of a true artist behind the camera. Her personality shined through our email communications back and forth, and made the process of booking other vendors so seamless. These photos really are a dream come true and it’s something we will cherish forever. We cannot wait to share them with our families! I cannot thank Peggy enough, she is truly a gem!

Giuliana & Rotem FROM USA
Overjoyed with our wedding photos!

Thank you so much for the incredible work you did as our wedding photographer. Your talent, dedication, and wonderful personality truly made our day unforgettable. From the moment we met you, it was clear that you’re not just a photographer, but a genuine and warm-hearted person. Your ability to capture the essence of our special day exceeded our expectations. Each photo tells a story, and we are beyond thrilled with the results. Your attention to detail and commitment to ensuring every moment was captured did not go unnoticed. You made us feel comfortable and at ease, allowing us to be ourselves while you worked your magic behind the lens.

Peggy, your passion for photography shines through, and it’s evident that you love what you do. We are incredibly grateful to have had you as our photographer, and we will cherish these beautiful memories forever. Thank you once again for being a crucial part of our wedding day. Your talent and warmth made it even more special.

Peggy is a gifted photographer with amazing talent!

Peggy is amazing! She helped me so much before we met with recommending all the best places for us to do our wedding ceremony and who to collaborate with. It can be overwhelming when you live in the US and you are planning a wedding overseas, but she made it seamless! Her photography is so beautiful and her presence is very warm. Her and Umberto are a wonderful tag team for photography and videography. You will not regret having her as your photographer! My pictures were absolutely gorgeous and I will forever treasure them!

Each photo is highlighted and shows the spirit of that day.

Peggy is the most talented photographer we’ve ever met. She has been professional since the first day we contacted her, searching for every detail of our wedding. The D-day, she was everywhere and nowhere at the same time: nobody noticed her, but she captured every special moment. Today we discovered our gallery and we have no words. It’s simply amazing, beautiful, poetic, realistic and touching. I’m so thankful Peggy, what a memory we have thanks to you !


She is very creative and has an eye for capturing unique shots.

Peggy was an absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish. She was so easy to communicate with – very responsive, enthusiastic and warm. We both felt at ease with Peggy and she has a natural style that doesn’t come across overly staged or forced. She’s very spirited and will keep you energized and excited throughout the whole process. I couldn’t recommend her more.

She made us both feel so comfortable and documented our day in the most beautiful and unobtrusive way.

We had the absolute pleasure of having Peggy to photograph our wedding in Italy and it was without doubt the best decision we made! From our first interaction online, she was such a lovely person to deal with. When we finally met her in September she was exactly how she came across online – enthusiastic, friendly and warm. To the say we were blown away by our photos would be the biggest understatement. Peggy is truly gifted at what she does and we are so grateful to her for capturing the memories from our weekend – memories of a lifetime! All our friends and family commented on what a great job she did and how friendly and professional she was. Thank you so much Peggy!

Peggy’s work is phenomenal!

After seeing her work on various wedding websites and social media, I reached out to her to book her for our elopement in Tuscany. Peggy was incredibly helpful and captured all our moments beautifully. I can say that our day was magical because of all the work that Peggy did. We are so happy and grateful to have worked with her!


Peggy was nothing short of amazing!

We never got to met before the wedding but everything with Peggy was so easy over email and social media.
We have just got our album and we are so over the moon with all of our pictures. We hardly noticed Peggy taking them! So professional throughout the whole day and had all group and couple photos wrapped up in no time!
If you are planning your Italy wedding definitely book Peggy for your big day.

Peggy is a goddess

Her portfolio speaks for itself, but if I’m to include a few words, Peggy is not only a beautiful person, but an incredible artist. She made us feel so comfortable during a process where my husband and I would typically feel awkward (being in front of the camera is not where we thrive!), and was able to capture us at our best 🙂 so much so, that we are having a difficult time narrowing down the photos we want to include in our wedding album! Forever thankful for our experience with her, and her ability to capture our story. She is simply the best!

Trust Maison Pestea with Your Big Day

Peggy at Maison Pestea is the right choice for your wedding in the Amalfi Coast. I came across her work while researching vendors for our intimate destination wedding in Positano and was blown away with her work. She was the first vendor we secured (before we even had a venue!), and it was the perfect choice. With a destination wedding, we knew that our guest list would be much smaller than it would have been had we married in the United States, so it was essential for us to choose a photographer that could capture the day so we could share it with everyone who couldn’t celebrate with us in person. The quality of the photographs we received from our wedding speak for themselves, but I also want to highlight how much of a pleasure Peggy was to work with! She takes pride in her work and also makes you feel comfortable and engaged throughout the process. The suggestions she made, including taking portraits on a boat overlooking Positano from the sea, led to amazing results and to memories that my husband and I cherish of our wedding day. We can’t recommend Peggy and Maison Pestea enough.

Peggy you captured the raw emotions and special moments throughout the day.

From the moment we contacted her we knew we had made the right decision choosing Peggy as our photographer. She was so professional yet personable. From watching Peggy’s Instagram stories and viewing her albums we knew we loved her style but it was also her friendly nature that put us at ease. We absolutely adore our fabulous gallery from our Big Day. A dream to work with and made everyone feel comfortable. The quality and style of the photos are just so beautiful. A pocket of history captured forever through your stunning photography.


She managed to capture the emotion and love in the midst of the craziness and our photographs are so beautiful and special!

There are not enough words on here to describe how amazing Peggy was on both our wedding day and the entire run up to it! We felt like we had become friends through our constant interaction and communications on Instagram and email, and this made it even better when we met for the first time in Rome! I cannot recommend Peggy enough! Thank you so so much again for working with us!


The best decision we made was booking Peggy!

Words can’t describe how amazing a photographer Peggy is! She made us feel completely at ease on our wedding day and took the most incredible photographs with such ease, we hardly noticed her there. Peggy has a very relaxed style which suited us perfectly and captured our wedding in the most beautiful, elegant way. I can’t recommend Peggy enough, honestly the best decision we made.


It was the best decision we ever made

We had the pleasure of having Peggy photograph our wedding September 2020 and it was the best decision we ever made. Peggy is just a lovely person to work with, she is warm, friendly and professional. She made us and our guests feel so comfortable. My husband doesn’t like having his photograph taken but Peggy’s friendly, calm and unobtrusive way made him so at ease on the day.
Peggy is truly gifted at what she does, she was everywhere and nowhere it seemed and she captured so many special moments and all the emotions of the day. We are blown away by the photographs in our gallery, they are stunning in style and quality and capture the spirit and the atmosphere of the day perfectly. I could not be happier and I will treasure these memories forever. Peggy helped make our wedding the best day of our lives and I cannot say enough good things or recommend her enough. If you are thinking of hiring Peggy as a photographer please do it, you won’t regret it.

Your dedication and passion for your work is so inspiring

Peggy, we cannot thank you enough! You captured the most beautiful moments of our special day, it was our pleasure to share our day with you. Your dedication and passion for your work is so inspiring! For any future brides or grooms out there, have no doubt Peggy is best! xxxxxx

We were so lucky to have found Peggy as a photographer for our wedding

We were so lucky to have found Peggy as a photographer for our wedding in September in Rome. Peggy’s pictures really spoke to us in terms of style and quality and it was the easiest decision for us to choose her to capture our day. And we are so glad we did because we love the result. even though we were unlucky with the weather, Peggy made the best out of it and made everything look so beautiful! Another thing we really appreciated was Peggy’s responsiveness throughout the whole process from getting in touch the first time until printing our album.


Peggy is a first-class, professional and wonderful photographer.

She took beautiful photographs of our wedding, listened throughout, and understood exactly what we wanted. We had good communication before the wedding, she gave us complete confidence that she would have things under control and be doing the most amazing job. She also provided a recommended ‘timeline’ which we found extremely calming and helpful. Peggy is a hard-working photographer, with two cameras strapped to her body she was always busy in the background, getting beautiful, natural shots but never intruding the moment. She has a level of creativity and professionalism that is outstanding. Having her shoot our wedding was fun and exciting and we felt very comfortable. She helped me communicate in Italian with some of the suppliers that were not too good in English, she kept track of the timeline of the day and makes you feel so relaxed. We had numerous comments from our guests about how experienced Peggy was. She knows what she needs and wants for the perfect shot. We loved that we got some preview photos quickly after the wedding. Having Peggy as our wedding photographer was one of the best decisions we made for our special day! Her warm and beautiful personality meant that she felt like another guest at the wedding! I felt that we got a good connection and chemistry. Hope to see her again sometime. Could not recommend Peggy enough.

We cannot thank Peggy enough!

We had Peggy booked from 2018 before the pandemic and she has been incredibly flexible and helpful during postponing and rescheduling! We absolutely loved her work and style and wanted to make sure she was available before rescheduling to any other dates. On the wedding day she knows exactly what she is doing and was so helpful in guiding us and making us feel relaxed! We could not be more happy with our wedding photos, we love every single one and that’s all down to her amazing talent. Her passion has come through from start to finish and she really is worth her weight in gold! Thank you so much Peggy!!

Peggy was absolutely wonderful!

Peggy was absolutely wonderful! She arrived right on time and got to work photographing my invitations and flower bouquet while I finished up getting ready. She was very helpful with ideas and where to stand for the ceremony so that I could get the beautiful back drop of Italy in my pictures! She was very easy to communicate through emails and always responded very fast. Getting the pictures from her was exceptionally fast as well. I loved all the detail she put in to photographing not just myself and husband but also the landscape of Italy! I would highly recommend her for elopement weddings!
