Florence first look
The first look is an Anglo-Saxon custom and provides for the meeting of the couple before the ceremony. The groom awaits the bride’s arrival and they will be seen for the first look in a wedding dress. Emotions of the couple are contagious and it is always an exciting experience for the protagonists and for me. The Tuscan city is beautiful but being a wedding photographer in Florence is difficult. The streets are often crowded with tourists and it is not easy to photograph an elopement in Florence.
Wedding couple photo session
The photographs of their Florence first look were made in Piazza Santo Spirito in front of the Basilica and along the walking path before reaching Piazza della Signoria where the civil ceremony took place. As usual to obtain a great image and be a good wedding photographer in Florence are important the complicity of the couple, the empathy and the light but not only. To be a wedding photographer in Florence you have always to observe very carefully. The seemingly bare wall in optimal lighting conditions is often more interesting than the beautiful crowded scenery of onlookers.
