On Maddalena & Arturo’s anniversary, we did a couple shoot in Florence. Florence is also a very special city to us. Not only that the city is beautiful and has much to offer … We also had our engagement shoot here. We regularly travel through Florence, both photographically and privately, and every time we learn something new.
Although the shoot took place during the last week of September, we had a lot of lucky with the weather. It was very warm and still summery this afternoon. The incredible Piazzale Michelangelo was the meeting point. From this place you have a beautiful view of Florence, as it is very high. Since it is always overcrowded here, we moved a few streets and started shooting. This is what we always do. Thanks to this the couples do not feel overly watched at the beginning of the shoot.
The two were super affectionate. This can be seen in every photograph we have made of them. We had a lot of fun together and laughed a lot. By the way, both are true Florentines. But even they didn’t know the corners where we took some of the photos, which made the whole thing a little more beautiful.
In Italian cities like Florence, Rome, Venice etc. it does not really matter where exactly you take the photographs. The places in itself are simply incredibly beautiful.
After about 1.5 hours we were done and Arturo had to carry Maddalena back 🙂 The feet then a little hurt after all … Understandably. But that way we managed to take these last really great photographs of this situation.
We could have photographed much longer because the two were simply a lot of fun.
We can only recommend an engagement shoot in Florence before the wedding to each couple, so they can absorb this city’s great atmosphere. In addition, it helps to get to know their wedding photographer in Florence beforehand in order to lose any camera shyness. That way you can be much more certain that everything will be more relaxed on the wedding day. Wonderful moments are born from this. The couple should trust the photographer and build a friendly connection … that makes it so much easier.
