One of the most important things to do in a couple life is a portrait session. Investing some time in order to immortalize that moment, to be spent with the people one loves, and return the best version of oneself to future generations. It’s not just about vanity; it’s about love, a statement of one’s life project. If you add to all this the sceneries that Tuscany and Italy can provide, the outcome cannot but be inspiring.
These Texan lovebirds, who have chosen the hills of Tuscany for their portrait session, are well aware of this. Or maybe I should call it engagement, since they got married two days later, surrounded by their relatives and friends from all over the world – please see some photos of their wedding in Florence here. During the portrait session, these lovebirds were alone. We chose together an untouched location in the countryside of Chianti, near San Gimignano. Here they had all the intimacy needed to take snapshots of two cute and happy people who were about to crown their love. You can see that by their smiles, by their lightness, by that luminous aura that envelops people in the period of marriage, which matches the moment one’s peak beauty. Is it by chance that for most people it coincides with the moment of greatest happiness? Who knows!
Tuscany has gifted us with a beautiful sunset and a wonderfully warm light, which has enveloped bodies and hills gently, highlighting the beauty of the bride-to-be. I asked them to stroll and chat carefree, among the sunburnt fields and ordered lines of cypress trees, to capture spontaneous moments of happiness. And then I got closer to them, to shoot fabulous portraits. It was a bit cold, and the bride-to-be froze a bit. Tuscany at the beginning of the Autumn is a bit cruel: stunning but sometimes cold as well. Anyway, I’d say it was absolutely worth it to bring home a sensational portrait session. Here are some photos.
