A honeymoon this time. Not only weddings and engagements. Florence and Tuscany are undoubtedly among the top destinations when it comes to committing eternal love. Or more simply celebrating an important occasion. Downtown Florence is not huge. It gives the opportunity to walk from place to place in matter of minutes. This gives the photographer the chance to play with a wide set of backdrops. Some people like the famous landmarks. Such as the Ponte Vecchio (Old Bridge), Palazzo Vecchio (Old Palace) – yes, lots of “old stuff” is to be found in Florence – and many more. The views from up the hills surrounding are astonishing. The city centre is also beautiful. And so the narrow alleys in the medieval quarter. These are my favorites to try and stay away from the crowds during the peak season.
As a destination wedding photographer, I also have a duty to make sure that the photographs I deliver to my clients are contextualized and convey all the emotions that the beauty of Florence can trigger. This is why not only do I work on close-ups, portraits and details but also I indulge in wide angle shots. This is to portrait the city’s architecture and urban landscapes. If Florence is the destination for such an important happenings, then it must deserve to be displayed in full. The challenge as a photographer is to make in a why that the magnificence and scale of all this architectural beauty does not overwhelm the subjects of the photographs. Instead it should help frame them in a non obtrusive way. When one manages to achieve a good balance between subject and the surrounding environment, then the result is pleasant and the memory of the place will last forever.
