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 session in Tuscany are extraordinarily fortunate. They could not get anything better!
From far Finland, this couple drove to Florence for a vacation before the wedding. They then decided to take a moment, between hikes and wine tastings, to be portrayed by a professional photographer. Wearing their wedding dresses, they allowed me to guide them along dirt roads to reach a natural area near San Gimignano and Certaldo, where I captured all their photos. I chose a deserted countryside setting. I asked them to relax and enjoy some time between the ordered cypresses and the rolling yellow hills. Here are some photos!
