Photo of the day – 20/06/19

I do like taking nice couple pictures, pictures looking like cinematographic frames or crazy light situation to put my couples in. But we must never forget what a wedding day is about. It’s about love and love can be also a tiny hand looking for the safety of his dad’s hand. that’s love, that’s why I love the small details or gestures, that’s why I am there.

Japanese traditions in Certaldo, Tuscany. Hana & Matthias wedding in Tuscany

I had a very good start this season, a lot of spring weddings and some surprises! One of the surprise was Hanna & Matthias hiring me also for their civil wedding in Certaldo and, on top, the AMAZING traditional japanese wedding dress that Hana was wearing. It’s a family Kimono (5 generations got married with that dress) and she was simply stunning with her traditional dress and hair! fun fact: there’s an original Japanese house of…

Engagement at Villa Caruso, Alessia & Tommaso

I love when the couple ask also for Elopement session, it helps a lot to break the ice for the wedding day (a post about it will follow in the next days, stay tuned) so I was glad that Alessia & Tommaso also agreed to shot their engagement pictures.   Alessia told me that she’s shy, that she won’t be comfortable in front of a camera and that she usually does not likes her pictures…..well,…

Honeymoon shooting at dawn in Florence, Michelle & Brendan

I guess I told you already on some previous post that I love shooting at dawn in Florence, you can enjoy one of the most amazing place on Earth in, almost, silence with no people around.  Walking alone between statues, ancient buildings and iconic places like the ones in Florence is something that everybody should try once in a lifetime. Michelle & Brendan, a couple from Singapore that chose Florence for their honeymoon, asked me…

Intimate wedding in Tuscany, Tatiana & Daniel

There’s always a first time, I think. This was my first intimate wedding with a couple from Costa Rica and it was SIMPLY AMAZING. let’s not focus on the ceremony, on the beautiful setting at Conti di San Bonifacio and the amazing light we got. Let’s just talk about how FUN it was. I never felt that energy in such an intimate wedding (7 guests), it was loud, fun, emotional and I still put a smile on my…

Engagement in Monteriggioni, Tuscany

I’ve always liked that amazing medieval town over the hill, I’ve been there as a tourist many times so I figured it was time for me to plan an engagement session in Monteriggioni!   unfortunately we had no chances to go over the walls and enjoy the view but we improvised and we got a nice set of pictures! I can’t wait to shoot this amazing wedding in Tuscany 😉   here’s the pictures

Elopement in Florence

Last sunday I shot the first wedding of the season, a very romantic elopement in Florence with a fun and cool greek couple.   I felt a connection to Georgia, the bride, from the very start and I was very pleased to meet her and Iannis in person eventually, they have been the perfect couple for me since they trusted me about everything and it was very easy to work with them, we had tons of fun and…

a quick and improvised portrait session at my Studio

February, time to try something new, buying new toys for my work and mostly time to have some fun in relax. 2 days ago I received my new beauty dish and I wanted to try some quick portrait so I called my friend Vidhya to check if she was available for a 30 minutes session and she even brought a friend so we ended having good time and trying some different things.   this is the result,…

As you can see from my recent posts the previous wedding season has been a very happy one and it could not have a better ending than this, a very fun scottish wedding with a lovely ceremony in San Galgano Abbey, Tuscany, followed by a great reception and party at Tenuta di Papena . I was pretty excited when I knew that Ashleigh and Maurice chose me as their wedding photographer since I never had the chance to…

Northern elegance in Tuscany – Wedding in Borgo Stomennano

I live and work in a lucky area, not so many places attracts people from all over the world as Tuscany does and I think this is one of the key to keep getting better and better in this job since we happen to work with so many different cultures. In late september I had the chance to be the photographer at Pernille and Henrik‘s wedding in the majestic Borgo Stomennano, one of the most beautiful wedding location…

A romantic wedding in San Galgano abbey

Ok, I admit it. I love shooting in San Galgano Abbey, one of the gem we have in Tuscany.  Can you blame me ?   When I got the first e-mail from Mari, a spanish girl living in Australia, I already felt that this could be a fun wedding and now I can say that my feelings were right from the start. A very romantic wedding made of vows, poems, an opera singer and string, a…

Ylenia & Andrea: an emotional wedding in Tuscany

I like first times.  It’s always a challenge to me. This was the first time I was shooting a fellow wedding photographer getting married so I had  a lot of responsibilty being chosen from a person that does my same job!   The wedding was held at Villa di Striano, Borgo San Lorenzo (in Mugello area), a wonderful location that I really enjoyed shooting at.   Ylenia and Andrea made everything simple for me since…

“is it going to rain?” wedding in Vignamaggio, Tuscany

September is my favourite month to shoot wedding, I love the light, I love the weather and I love that usually I get some day off in late august 🙂 Sometimes September might have a bad sense of humor and decide that it’s going to deliver lightning and thunders and this happened at Louise and Stephen’s wedding. Even if the wedding planner had a cool plan B, the couple wanted  an outdoor ceremony (and I…
