The engagement period is a sweet time in your relationship, and it’s lovely to remember that with pictures of you both together in one of the most beautiful places ever: Tuscany. An Engagement Session in Tuscany and Florence is just a fantastic opportunity to have professional portraits taken during this time in your lives.
I encourage all of my couples to schedule an engagement session in the Italian countryside, especially if you are a little nervous about being in front of a camera. Taking engagement photos in Florence is the perfect chance to get to know each other while strolling through the paved street and the charming olive groves, plus it’s a ton of fun! By the time you’re done, you will know what to expect from your wedding day portraits.
Be guided by an expert photographer among the best spots for engagement images in Italy.
Here are some readings (plus beautiful photos) you might enjoy:
Among all the seasons to have a photo shoot in Tuscany, autumn is my favourite. From a vivid spring green, the colours first become yellow and then red, with shades of copper, perfect for sunset portraits and dreamy photos in the countryside. This year, autumn seems to have arrived early. The terrible heat and drought coloured the Tuscan landscape of intense yellow, much earlier than usual. Those who chose July for a honeymoon or an engagement […]

When photography has been a passion for many years, when it is part of you and you cannot think of yourself without it, it is hard to say “pause” and do without it.

Hence places, people and atmosphere come through the lens, not only for work but for sheer pleasure. A pleasure that […]

Girls living in Eastern Europe call it Love Story in Tuscany. It is a sort of engagement session to do after the wedding, with calm, once the excitement of the event has faded and the things to do are finally over. Almost a honeymoon session, but with a typically romantic flavour. A snapshot of the life of the couple, in their happiest moment. An opportunity to meet again two people who have remained in my heart, after almost […]

Although they were initially interested in an engagement session before the wedding, they had such a busy schedule that it wasn’t possible. I ask them to switch to a […]
Tuscany in autumn is one of the most charming areas of Italy. The hills and the landscapes are tinged with red, the leaves quickly turn yellow, and everything becomes more melancholy. The bride and the groom to be couldn’t know it; even if they‘ll get married next year in this area, they had never visited Tuscany in this period. Creating some couple portraits in this season is undoubtedly a winning choice. The engagement session took […]

The Castello di Casole is a masterpiece. It is the venue that Lupe and Jose, our protagonists today, chose for the photographs of their engagement session. It is located in the province of Siena, in southern Tuscany. The area is almost entirely untouched by human intervention.

When I ask couples where to take engagement pictures, they always let me recommend some excellent locations for intimate and casual portraits. It is not easy to choose the best places for engagement shoots. It depends on many factors: for instance, where you met, or a special place in your heart or the colour you want to give to the shoot. First, I try to interpret the personality of the subjects: finding the mood that suits […]

What to say about Jay, her groom to be? I met a handsome dark-haired, tall and elegant man who didn’t […]
