Tuscany Wedding Photographer

Tuscany is the best location for destination weddings in the world. Just look at the breathtaking landscapes or the fabulous villas to dream of a wedding here. A Tuscany Wedding Photographer couldn’t be happier to work in this paradise. But Tuscany is not just the land of wedding and elopements. Hundreds of visitors choose Florence for great marriage proposals or pre-wedding photo shoots in the historical center of the town. If you’re looking for something more intimate, you might also consider getting married in Lucca, or in the fairytale castles of Chianti.

Tuscany is also the perfect place to spend your honeymoon with your loved one. After marriage, there’s nothing better than to take some family photos into the best gardens or in the gorgeous Tuscan countryside. You should also consider the exclusive beach resorts of Versilia and Forte dei Marmi. Word of Tuscany Wedding Photographer.

Conti di San Bonifacio Wedding

Conti di San Bonifacio is undoubtedly one of the most attractive wedding venues of Tuscany. You never stop wondering! When I thought I had seen the nicest places there, here comes the chance to work in this incredible estate in the Maremma. This Conti di San Bonifacio Wedding is worth to be told! But first things first. Conti di San Bonifacio is a wine resort located in Gavorrano, in the province of Grosseto. The area is the wildest and unspoilt of Tuscany: the paradise of every photographer. Fields in bloom and orderly vineyards accompany me along the journey on deserted roads. A gate out of nowhere welcomes me; the road begins to climb and, at last, I am in front of the impressive facade of the structure. A large arched wooden door is before my eyes. Above it, the skeleton of the head of a buffalo. I am suddenly aware that one of the strengths of the Conti di  San Bonifacio is the position.… read more...

Returning to photograph a wedding at the Antica Fattoria di Paterno,  is always a lovely thing! It’s like meeting dear friends after a long time. There is always pleasant news!

Garden Wedding at Agriturismo Le Bolli

Attention to detail is one of the prerogatives of every successful marriage. A thoughtful bride already has clear in her mind how her wedding will be well before it begins.

This is the case of this beautiful ceremony at Agriturismo Le Bolli.

International Wedding at San Galgano Abbey

International Wedding at San Galgano Abbey

Among the many beautiful locations for civil ceremonies in Tuscany, the Abbey of San Galgano holds a special place in my heart. It is located in Chiusdino, a few kilometres from Siena, in a charming and deserted area. It is a former Cistercian abbey, whose roof collapsed in the past centuries. And this gives the abbey an endless charm. Millions of tourists visit it every year.  Some of them decide to get married right here. It’s the case of this beautiful couple. The spouses got ready at the estate of Bichi Borghesi, in Scorgiano. An ancient ruined and charming property that offers its guests rooms and apartments immersed in nature, a riding school and a fabulous red wine produced by local vineyards.

They gathered in the garden of the Villa di Liliano, where the groom gazed excited at her as she walked down the lawn towards him. They exchanged vows and rings just before sunset on a warm summer day. Later on, the spouses and families have toasted to their union with the local limoncello, always in the garden. I portrayed the couple inside the villa property, in the most charming and lovely spots.… read more...

Borgo di Castelvecchio is one of the most picturesque venues of the entire  Tuscany. I arrived here on a very hot summer day, crossing the desolate streets and the fields burned by the sun.

Romantic San Gimignano Wedding

San Gimignano is one of the most popular destinations for Tuscany for weddings and honeymoons. Its towers, surrounded by hills and cypress trees, are one of the most famous icons of Tuscany in the world. San Gimignano is quite crowded with tourists throughout the year. The stone streets with typical shops, the atmosphere of the country village and the smell of food through the narrow streets leave an unforgettable memory in the hearts of those who visit it.

Family Portrait at Castello di Casole

As I drive along the deserted roads that lead from Siena to Castello di Casole, I cannot help but fall in love with the surrounding scenery. Nature here is still completely untouched: fields in bloom and rows of cypress trees have been for centuries the guardians of the Senese Chianti area. The San Galgano Abbey is the only attraction in the neighbourhood, visited by thousands of tourists every year. Not far away, Castello di Casole rises regally on a hill. It’s an ancient Tuscan village, expertly restored by an American property that rents rooms and luxury villas to those who wish to spend a few days in this paradise.

Tuscany Engagement Session in Chianti

Tuscany Engagement Session in Chianti

The Chianti area, in Tuscany, is one of the most enchanting for any photo shoot. The cinema has often used these beautiful sceneries for memorable movies. Among many, I remember well Under the Tuscan Sun, or Letters to Juliet. It’s no surprise then that many couples in love choose the landscapes of the Chianti area for their engagement session. A year wouldn’t be enough to photograph all the wonders of this area. Along the ancient road that leads from Florence to Siena, it is a continuous up and down between the hills yellowed by the sun. Several dirt roads lined with cypress trees peep through the vegetation, getting lost beyond the horizon. Many of these could be the ideal set for numerous love stories, but all lovers of the world would not be enough to shoot all the gorgeous spots of the area. One of the most beautiful couples of this year took the opportunity of a family trip to be happily portrayed during an engagement session in Chianti.… read more...
