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. In fact, they feel home here. The family came to Tuscany many years ago, and it has never stopped ever since. As soon as they could, he brought here his future wife for a holiday full of relaxing and good food.
It was a pleasure to guide and photograph them on the streets and among the local vineyards. In addition to being both good-looking, Eirene and Brian are also very friendly and kind. The planning of the portrait session took several weeks, and it was a pleasure to meet them finally in person.
They both opted for a casual but very refined look. She chose the red colour, perfect to bring out her skin and her beautiful dark hair. Flat gold sandals to walk effortlessly in the countryside and an innate elegance that made her the perfect model for these scenarios. He wore long, light trousers with the timeless white shirt; the sleeves rolled up to the elbows.
If you’re planning a trip to Italy in the future months, don’t miss the chance to be portrayed during a photo shoot in the Chianti area, in Tuscany. You will return home with breathtaking images to show to your friends and family.
