I love elopements as much (if not more!) than traditional weddings. Imagine being somewhere beautiful with your significant other, sharing days, experiences, adventures and getting married in a place that will forever remain special. I was truly honoured to travel to Tuscany in July to capture a very special Tuscan elopement for Megan and Chris. They travelled all the way from Canada to pronounce their vows under the Tuscan sun <3

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...
A very special shoot for me. a very special family. A very special boy.
I was spending a couple of weeks in Florence in September, and the family of my boyfriend came to visit. We enjoyed a beautiful Florentine atmosphere, drove to the lookout point, enjoyed the sincere and warm weather. Filip, a curious 1,5 years old, was giving me goosebumps with his smiles, excitement and sincerity. I hope I managed to catch his childhood spontaneity <3
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 slowly 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.
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 :)
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!
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.
