A photo shoot in Chianti is an experience to try at least once in a lifetime. Among the many fascinating places in Italy, the Chianti area is one of the most impressive and well-known.
In late August, nature is at its best. The light is soft, warm and cosy, perfect for intimate portraits. The colours of nature become yellow then turn copper-colored, making the landscapes even more breathtaking. Sunsets are unforgettable.
This couple must have thought about this when they decided to take their photographs in the yellowed rolling hills of Chianti. Or maybe they just took advantage of the photo shoot to spend a few days of relaxation and culture in this part of Tuscany.
Their engagement photo shoot took place around Certaldo and San Gimignano, in one of the lesser known regions of Tuscany. The bride and groom to be posed between enchanted villages and fabulous landscapes, that inspired the painters of the Renaissance. The undisputed star of the photo shoot was a vintage Fiat Cinquecento, which allowed me to capture some of the best shots of this year.
I spent a few great hours with them. It was fun to find out that, thanks to her Italian grandparents, she has acquired a strong Southern Italian accent! Too bad she does not speak Italian at all!! Seriously, she is a gorgeous and sensitive girl. He is charming too, and I cannot wait to see their wedding pictures.
Please enjoy below some pretty photos from their engagement photo shoot in Chianti.
