Many lovers from around the world, often local, but also American and Asian, choose Tuscany as the location of their engagement session. What is it exactly? Photographer and subjects decide together a location and a theme for the pictures and then take nice portraits in the most beautiful spots in the region. This session may be just an opportunity to stop time and be celebrated in a particular moment of life. A snapshot of the path of a family.
Over the years, the engagement session in Tuscany has become for me an opportunity to break the routine of weddings. Spending some time with the couple before the big day let me know them better. I take this opportunity to understand their expectations and their dreams on their best day, to explain in detail how I will work during their wedding, to make sure they get used to my presence and that of the camera. But, increasingly, the couple’s engagement session in Tuscany has become a moment of personal enrichment. Each couple has its history, its path, its happy moments. Often similar but always unique.
Sometimes I meet couples who remain in my heart. This is the kind of couple that you’d stay in wonder forever to listen to what they have to say. The photo shoot lasted more than one hour, thanks to the lovely bride-to-be, whom I never grew tired of portraying in this beautiful area of Tuscany. It was worth capturing every smile, every glance, and every smirk. It was worth immortalising them this way: happy and carefree before their marriage.
