What a beautiful day it was! They arrived to Florence a couple of days after their wedding, still full of emotions and wonderful memories of the day. We met early in the morning to have a stroll in the city end enjoyed empty streets. We planned to watch a sunset in the evening somewhere in Chianti, drove to the vineyards and got under the pouring rain instead. It was a real adventure to drive back in the thunderstorm, but a few photos from the olive gardens are worth it!
I so much love sessions like this - spontaneous, cheerful and full of happy emotions. Ann surprised her significant other with a sunny shoot in Rome for their second anniversary. Bring those days back!
As many great encounters these days, ours happened thanks to social media. I've been following Zhenya's adventures for quite a long time, and when we happened to be in Cape Town in the same period I decided to drop her a line and arrange a shoot. I instantly fell in love with her and Julius, they looked so wonderful together, there was such a special connection between them! I hope I managed to capture it.
They are young, free and so much in love! Two beautiful redheads on a sunrise shoot in Cape Town. I was so glad to document their connection!
They came to Amsterdam from a warm Tel Aviv. They wanted to capture a few happy moments of their honeymoon in Europe, far away from what they are used to. Amsterdam was the best choice, with it's golden September light, narrow bridges, and romantic streets.
I love proposals. There is something very special in witnessing those bright and emotional moments of two people celebrating their love and deciding to spend many years together.
I'm sharing one of my recent shoots, when I was hiding behind the tree at the beginning, trying to capture every smile and tear of joy. After the proposal I could reveal myself and we had a lovely walk around Amsterdam.
One of the most tender, fun and sincere couple sessions I've ever made. A young love full of hope, happiness and dreams. Looking forward to the wedding of Jess and Ross.
I was ready to proclaim December a "proposal month' when my favourite Flytographer consierge team sent me an inquiry from Ryan. He was coming to Amsterdam with the girlfriend to celebrate his birthday in one of their favourite European cities. He's been preparing the proposal moment for almost a year, aiming for Amsterdam and his birthday, to make the moment even more special.
We spent a few weeks chatting on whatsapp and choosing the perfect spot for that special moment. Ryan made me emotional a few times by sending "their" song or telling me about a beautiful phrase "To the ends of the earth" engraved on the ring box...I was very committed to make the proposal shoot as beautiful as possible!
Of course we hoped for a sunny weather, but Amsterdam is so unpredictable. Ryan was very easy about everything, as nothing could stop him from enjoying such an important moment. I think that a misty and grey city was a nice background for the shoot, isn't it?
Love story all around Amsterdam
Their love story enchanted me from the very first time I heard it. It's a story about something very true and genuine, very big and inspiring. Real love that conquered the distance and cultural differences.
Natasha contacted me a few months before their wedding, we met in Amsterdam and it was love at first sight. I literally couldn't wait till their wedding day, but in themeantime we've met twice to capture some relaxed moments of their love-story in the city that as become her hometown.
Every wedding starts with a proposal...
Oliver has been planning that special moment for quite a long time, and he managed to keep it in secret! He was planning to propose in Florence during a romantic weekend with his beloved Samantha. Accidentally, when he contacted me for a photoshoot we were both in Amsterdam and met shortly after exchanging a few emails.
I was so impressed and touched by the way he spoke about his lady and how well he planned everything: from a trip to the most romantic city in Italy to secretly flying their parents in.
A few months later, on a cloudy warm summer day, I was hiding behind a floral arch in Giardino Bardini trying to capture every moment, every emotion of that beautiful moment.
Have a look together with me.
