Florence Wedding In Villa Medicea di Lilliano Wine Estate
Florence and the surrounding countryside are a goldmine of fantastic venues for weddings: the landscape, the history, the cultural heritage, the excellent food and wine are all elements that make this area a perfect place for a wedding celebration. Maybe even stopping by for a few days before and after the wedding, to enjoy life a little, in an environment that is widely regarded as quintessential Italy. In fact, it is not by chance that I often work for foreign clients, when I find myself venturing these areas.
The Villa Medicea di Lilliano sits just outside Florence and it seems made to make the life of a photographer easy, because it has so many different spaces and little visual hindrances, it is arranged in such a way that light works pretty much any time of the day and it’s so nicely detailed. In short, so many little things that make my day easier and allow me to concentrate on taking pictures, rather than on fighting the elements.
Wedding in Tuscany
As a matter of fact, I was really very happy, when Yang and Richard decided to have me as a photographer for their Florence wedding. Because I knew the photos would have intrinsic elements of beauty regardless, brought to them by the wedding venue.
In addition, when on top of a lovely venue the bride and groom are a cute, fresh and adorable couple like Yang and Richard, then I’m all set to make the best of the day with beautiful pictures. Even when the weather takes its toll and, instead of gracing us with a beautiful spring day, it brings rain to the party and temperatures that would be better suited in Scandinavia, for the season. But that didn’t matter as you will see from the following photos, no one minimally lost the temper for a few drops of rain, let alone the bride and groom, or even yours truly.
Documentary Wedding Photography
As the title reads, my style of photography is based on capturing the authentic moments of the day, without forcing the bride and groom or their guests to pose and with no staging of pictures. My photographs are based on observation rather than on orchestration, where I try to be as unobtrusive as possible. Because I am convinced that the true value of wedding photography lies in preserving the emotions experienced on the day of the wedding by the bride and groom and their guests. On the contrary, if the photo is artificially posed or the moment staged, the memory preserved by the image will be that of the photographer staging the photo, and there will be nothing personal, nor emotional about that worth preserving. Simple, but not simplistic!
Dear Yang and Richard, it was truly a pleasure to be your storyteller. May every day of your life be as happy as the one that I witnessed!
