// An Intimate Elopement on the hills of Florence //

This time an intimate elopement. The hills surrounding Florence as setting. What one could dream more? Each wedding is a unique occasion, and each time I tell myself that I am so lucky to be witnessing all this love. As a result, I always try and come up with new ideas for portraying bride and groom. Although the scenery may look the same, bride and groom can actually make the difference. With their nature and attitude. This is what I always strive to encourage. Forget about photography and relax. The photographs will then come out by themselves. Isn’t that magic?

And by looking at the pictures one can tell how fun it was for them. I did have a marvellous time with Shannon and Luke. Showing them around the city of Florence on a sunny late afternoon was just perfect. They were very easy to work with. In addition, they also wanted to know a lot about the history of Florence. The ceremony took place at the Bardini Gardens, after which we went for a city tour. Above all I guess they enjoyed the views. Piazzale Michelangelo and San Miniato al Monte offer a privileged viewpoint over the city. Similarly, from Santa Trinita bridge overlooking the Ponte Vecchio.

This is where we took the last photographs and the lighting was just perfect. Warm tones for a very romantic atmosphere. Passers-by kept greeting bride and groom, which was a great way to finish off the day. “Congratulazioni e figli maschi” is a traditional greeting here in Italy to wish good luck to the newly wed.
