When Bénédicte and Romain emailed us for their wedding, we knew almost nothing about French Alps, and yet we were absolutely fascinated by the photos we had seen and secretly hoped to visit those places one day. So, imagine how incredibly excited we were to have the opportunity to travel there for this lovely couple's wedding. Not far from the sandy beaches of the French Riviera and the typical, sunny towns of Provence, there is a whole world of mountain villages, forts and dramatic landscapes we couldn't wait to discover and shoot.
Leda and Peter got married in beautiful Vignamaggio estate, in the heart of Chianti, and both for their wedding and e-session they didn't want anything too fancy. They just wanted the focus to be completely on them and their love, and of course, on the beautiful background of vineyards, hills and amazing Tuscan light. Of course, we couldn't agree more!
So, right before their rehearsal dinner, we took a stroll around the venue, to catch the best sunset light, as well as the best smiles and kisses
Our first destination wedding abroad. The city that stole our hearts since we were little girls. A car ride in a bright red Mini all over the city centre. An industrial setting, in Shoredicth, with a party vibe. Two beautiful souls. What's not to love about this wedding?
Before Lisbeth and Sergio, we never really had the chance to take part into an intimate wedding. Well, we shot weddings of 30 of 40 people, but we never understood the meaning of the word "intimate", before their amazing day with only 7 guests, who came across the ocean to spend a week in the Tuscan hills and celebrate with them such a beautiful day.
No, we did not leave our blog behind, we were just shooting amazing weddings here and there in Italy, Scotland and France!
But yours truly are finally in their "low season" mode, and we can start to show you all the amazing events, places and people we've been busy with in these last months. Let's start with this Canadian couple who literally stole our heart! Vicky and Steve are not only the sweetest people you can work with, but their uber cool taste allowed us to shoot one of the most stylish weddings we've ever seen!
How we love to portray someone in their natural environment!
For Letizia it was between brushes and lipsticks, eyeshadows and glosses. All of her weapons are made for one single purpose: to make women even more beautiful than what they already are, to empower them and let them feel confident, to highlight their best features and make them discover new ones.
When Spenser, a sweet American girl, met Magnus, a charming Swedish guy, it was love at first sight. Their life has always been on the move, but even if they now call Sweden home, they wanted to find somewhere really special to gather family and friends for their wedding day.
Villa Regina Teodolinda seemed the perfect place, with its breathtaking views over Lake Como, and its elegant and classy Italian atmosphere
As the wedding season is in full bloom, we entered a pattern of packing - shooting - coming back - laundry - editing - repacking - repeat. Each time, we come back with tons of wonderful pictures we literally cannot wait to show you, but blogging can be quite a long and hard work. So, yours truly, thought of this new Preview series, to give you a glimpse of what is going on behind the scenes, and to keep you inspired till our life pace returns to normal.
