Alexandra is one of those girls who, the moment you see them- bang!- she strike you right in the heart with their disarming beauty and cheerfulness. Florentines know it well, because, during a warm afternoon of May, they have stared at her while she was walking on the cobblestones of the city, close to her future husband. What to say about Jay, her groom to be? I met a handsome dark-haired, tall and elegant man who didn’t leave neutral the women walking in the centre of Florence. But let’s step back.
In Spring I received an email from two young New-Yorkers, Alexandra and Jay, who had decided to leave the Big Apple to exchange their eternal vows here in Tuscany, on the mild hills of the Florentine countryside. They also wanted me to take their engagement photos so that I could know each other better and get some memories of their holidays in Tuscany. I had no hesitation about the location of the images: Florence.
The engagement photos have never been so easy and natural. Alexandra and Jay looked like two actors on a journey, an America couple in Italy in the style of La Dolce Vita. The feeling among them was perceptible at every glance, and they showed it with unbelievable empathy in each situation. Besides being such a charming couple, what stood out was the deep love these two guys have for each other, a sentiment that brightened their smiles and gestures.
The afternoon went away so naturally, among a photo in Piazzale Michelangelo and one on Ponte Vecchio! Here are some pictures!
