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.
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.
People often ask me if I do family or pregnancy photoshoots. Yes, I do. I often call myself a wedding and couple photographer, but I do capture many beautiful families and lots of those very special moments. I love when my wedding clients come back to me after some time, asking to take photos of their growing families. My heart sings at the moments like those.
I decided to collect a few of my favorite family and pregnancy shots, to give you an idea of my style. As you see, I love candid spontaneous shots, so I usually take my clients out for a walk. And we share some happiness.
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!
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.
