Planning an engagement session from abroad can be a very tricky experience! Yes, because your luggage may be lost at the airport so that you must wear something unexpected for the photoshoot you’ve been planning for a long time. This nightmarish story is actually what happened to these American lovebirds, who chose Italy for their Florence Engagement Session. Thankfully, the lost luggage only contained one pair of shoes, which the groom-to-be quickly replaced last-minute. So the bride could slip in her fabulous Rime Arodaky dress and twirl through the streets of Florence, attracting the curious looks of tourists. Florence is not only an artistic and historic place; there are a lot of natural wonders, and the gardens are undoubtedly among the best in Italy.
The first part took place in a peaceful and calm garden in the Oltrarno, which is an amazingly beautiful spot and well worth the tour. With breathtaking sculptures and manicured lawns, it affords magnificent views of Florence as well. Here I captured relaxed and spontaneous portraits of this lovely couple, as they walked and chatted happily. Later, I led them through the wonderful views that Florence has to offer. It was a pleasure to shoot and get to know them better in the meantime, eagerly awaiting for their wedding in Tuscany next year. Even the weather seemed to be on our side, and it gave us a cloudy day, perfect to enhance the elegance of this bride-to-be.
Florence is the city of love, and having all this beauty as a backdrop is a privilege. It’s no coincidence that the Tuscan capital is also trendy for wedding proposals and exclusive destination weddings. But nothing compared to the chance to enjoy it calmly and have it as a setting for engagement photos. A daydream! Take a look at the photos below!
