If you have just engaged, I congratulate you. You surely will make a beautiful couple. I wish you a very happy engagement and this will be the start of a wonderful and long journey.
Hello and welcome again to my blog section. As you know me, I am Alessandro Taddeini and I am a professional photographer who mainly does wedding and engagement photoshoots.
Today, I am going to share with you the story of a beautiful engaged couple “Elizabeth and Mat” who came all the way from Houston, Texas.
First and foremost, I would say “may the engaged couple’s love and affection grow for each other with every passing day.”
The couple stayed at Four Season Hotel, Florence – the beautiful capital of the Tuscany region in Italy. This hotel is a beloved luxury name and one of Tuscany’s leading luxury hotels that deliver everything tourists would expect from a true luxury hotel.
I believe this is a perfect place to start a couple’s engagement photoshoot – and this what I did by taking some beautiful photos of Matt and Elizabeth.
The hotel has a combination of both old luxury and lavishly contemporary facilities at the garden sanctuary – located in the heart of beautiful Florence.
Bright and spacious, every room, lobby, and hall in the four-season hotel combine the décor of Renaissance-era with a wide variety of modern facilities.
Just to give you general information, the Four Season Hotel, Florence has a luxury spa that contains nine beauty treatment rooms including a gym and a Turkish bath.
I took some photos of the engaged couple in different areas of the hotel. I absolutely loved capturing Elizabeth and Mat’s lovely moments.
As you can see in this photo, the attractive smile of Elizabeth looking straight into the eyes of her heart’s king “Mat.”
I wanted to highlight their beauty and the adoration they have for each other – as they held hands, look each other in the eye, and smiled – as if they were standing in the paradise.
I have hundreds of photo sessions done for couples across Tuscany – but this moment really took my heart away. It was a “wow” moment for me as a photographer.
I always think a photoshoot must be personal to the engaged couple. I am always happy when I offer suggestions to the couple to help them get the results they want.
Considering this, location is the primary part of a great shoot – and if the couple has some favorite spots where they like to walk or I should say a nice landmark – would mean a lot for them.
That’s why I took a lot of their photos in two of the most scenic location in Florence – 1). Piazzale Michelangelo 2). San Miniato al Monte.
Florence is one of the most picturesque cities in Italy as there are many stunning photo session locations here.
The combination of breathtaking art and the amazing Renaissance architecture, and the beautiful light make some beautiful photo session spots in Florence.
I had the chance to welcome the beautiful couple to explore this beautiful city and they fell in love with Piazzale Michelangelo, which is the most iconic panoramic sight in Florence.
I took some beautiful photos of the couple at Piazzale Michelangelo and then went to San Miniato al Monte. The marvelous landscape of San Miniato al Monte makes the couple stunned where they wanted me to not skip a moment and keep on taking their photos.
Posing was clearly a substantial part of the photo session. It told them about my approach and they listened to me keenly. I gave directions to the couple as well as let them interpret my guidelines in their own way.
I was happy to step and gave them a more detailed posing direction. The purpose was to refine a few things.
All I wanted was to give them the best photo session experience.
Lastly, I welcome every engaged couple in Florence. If you are an engaged couple and have visited the beautiful town of Florence, you can contact me and I will capture your gorgeous moments in my camera. Thank you!
