Ciao and thank you for stopping by our shop!


My name is Valentina, I was born in Switzerland, spent most of my life in Italy and I moved to San Diego 8 years ago.

From day-of papery, to wedding bands or cufflinks, to vintage trays and styling surfaces, I always loved to see how wedding photographers create amazing designs with the details of the wedding! I feel that a flat lay is an elegant way to represent the style of an entire wedding and even showing the personality of the couples, I love them!

Being able to create beautiful styling mats and backdrops that can be used by wedding photographers, product photographers as well as by anyone who is selling a product, is absolutely a dream for me that I was able to achieve in 2020. I had too much time on my hands and the world was living an unprecedented situation, that is when my art started to evolve to what is now The Flat Lays Styler! 


I put much love in the work I do and in the products I create and I hope you will love them as much as we do( I say we do because my husband Ben is an integral part of keeping this little business of mine on track!)
