Be honest – have you ever dreamed of planning a wedding on a beach in Italy? How about on a hill in surrounded by your friends and family? Perhaps your dream is to exchange the rings in the middle of a lush green field or in a courtyard of a castle.

Sometimes, there is a step-by-step process that must be pursued carefully in order to result in the picture you want. This photograph is an example of such a process. The first time I thought to take this picture, I was actually visiting with the couple that is featured in it. We were visiting a monastery in Florence, the venue for their upcoming wedding reception, taking preview shots for the event that was soon to take place. Near the monastery, there was a beautiful wilderness area where visitors could enjoy the view of Florence.… read more...
