Architectural Photography is the photographing of buildings and similar structures that are both aesthetically pleasing and accurate representations of their subjects. Vanni Archive is an architectural photography studio based in New York. Valentina Puccioni and Ruggero Vanni, a team in work and in life, own the studio and have been photographing using computer postproduction since the late 1980s. Doing their own postproduction means that they know how to shoot the images that will yield the best results in the "digital darkroom" and on the printed page.

With the advent of the digital revolution, Vanni Archive embraced the opportunity to develop a new vision. Valentina's formal studies in history of art and architecture and Ruggero's experience as an artist have been instrumental in this research. The result is a depiction closer to the human vision and a representation that intends to be inspired by the Renaissance, when art and architecture shared a mutual understanding.

Vanni Archive works on assignment for architecture firms, as well as constantly enriching a significant historical archive of more than 80,000 images of works of art and architecture from 33 different countries, represented to the public by Corbis and Art Resource. Their work has been published in magazines, books, and in broadcast media around the world.

"Vanni Archive’s photography philosophy is to make it about you, to feature your architecture in its best light. Whether you are a large, medium, or small firm, this approach is designed to address your goals, to fit your budget, your timeframe, and most of all to express your design concept. We have streamlined the photoshoot to avoid cumbersome setup time, so we can work more efficiently and take more views. Each view is developed in a team effort from beginning to end, consulting with you to depict your original design to its full potential."
