What a beautiful idea it was to have an early morning walk in Florence straight after the wedding! When the emotions of a big day are still giving them goosebumps, when the sun is tender and love is all around...

This wonderful proposal became one of the highlights of my summer. It was like a movie. Like the most romantic episode of a family saga. Sean thought of every little detail: from the view on the vineyard to flowers that his beautiful lady loves. The musician played their song. The sun was gently setting down. He was talking of his love and desire to spend the whole life together. She was crying, amazed by such a surprise. I was pushing the button. This is their story.
Jeffrey and Naomi are from New York, and a couple of months ago they visited Amsterdam for the first time. This is where he decided to pop the question. Amsterdam was a perfect city (as Jeffrey told me) to propose: it's beautiful, charming, lively and very romantic. It has everything that they love when traveling: great international community, lots of hidden gems and great light. Naomi didn't have a clue. She was impressed. She was happy. She was emotional. And I was there to capture it (thanks to Flytographer for arranging it !).
I've spent some beautiful years in Florence, and keep on coming back to capture love and romance. I adore this city, it gives me so much strength and inspiration! I love exploring it again and again with clients, looking at usual things under a different angle...That afternoon we took a risk to shoot on busy Florentine streets, chasing great light and capturing a special vibe of the city. I love the result! Hope you too :)
I can't even calculate how many couples I had a privilege to photograph in Venice. I love this city for old narrow streets, secret spots all around and a great light. Sharing one of my favorite couple shoots in Venice.
Yana and Aleksei were dreaming of a romantic intimate elopement in one of the most beautiful cities in Italy - Florence. We got really lucky, as the sunset sun created a truly magical atmosphere. I walked with them to my favourite photo-spots, and we witnessed the sunset from a rooftop terrace in the heart of the city.
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!
They flew all the way to South Africa with a dream to exchange marriage vows next to the ocean. I was there to witness a very intimate, honest and emotional wedding ceremony "for two". After that special moment when they promised to love, respect and cherish each other, we drove to my favourite beach for a stunning sunset, stopping along the way.
I hope you will like these honest and very sweet moments captured by my camera.
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!
