For as long as I can remember, I’ve felt most at home when I was creating art. I fell in love with photography when I realized I could create art out of the moments that were already happening around me. When I was 13, I started bringing my little point-and-shoot camera to concerts and snapping photos of my favorite emo bands (it’s definitely not a phase). It sounds kind of silly, I know, but that was how I discovered how much I loved capturing people in their element.
Fast forward a bit...I've now been proudly and enthusiastically been working as a professional photographer for over five years. I graduated with my BFA in photography in 2018, and since then, I've had the pleasure of shooting dozens of gorgeous weddings all over New England. Being a Rhode Island wedding photographer with a formal education, I've developed a very authentic and photojournalistic style, and have applied those skills to capturing the love stories of modern, creative, quirky, fun-loving couples who share my passion for art.
If you love expressing your personality in creative ways (tattoos, anyone?), or find my cat Moo (pictured below) even half as adorable as I do, we might just be the perfect fit for each other. Now, go check out my portfolio and see the kind of images I want to create for YOU!
Hi, I'm Ari!
1 / 3
I'm a huge animal lover - always have been and always will be! Pet-wise, I'm a cat person (that's Moo, one of my fur babies, in the photo to the left!), but I love dogs as well, and will *always* encourage my couples to bring their pups along to their engagement session.
That's me & my sister, Jess - we come from a huge Italian family, so I'm used to being surrounded by lots of people! The ones I hold dearest to me are the most important part of my life.
My friends & Family

When I'm not taking photos, you can most likely find me singing. Well, I mean, I totally sing while I'm taking photos too, but I'm also a vocalist in a local rock band!
"Ari is absolutely incredible! I’ve done multiple shoots with her and was so happy with every one. She’s so easy and fun to work with and she is so skilled at what she does."
