I’ve been fortunate enough to have traveled to Italy twice before heading back for Kristen & Juan’s engagement shoot. This was the first time, however, I saw things differently as their Italy wedding photographers. Photographing a couple in such an aesthetically beautiful place is the most the inspiring thing. I remember passing up some decent spots to shoot because there was just so much that caught my eye walking through Milan. It was a never ending supply of textures and pockets of light that inspired me the entire morning. So if anyone else wants to have me capture them in an old European city, I’m game.
Juan was born and raised in Milan and has lived his entire life there. Kristen moved to Milan to be with Juan. Classic love story. I suggested we meet at sunrise because I knew I wanted to make some images by the world famous Duomo and it’s the only time of day you can avoid mass amounts of tourists. After shooting in Piazza del Duomo, we simply wandered around Milan and I documented these two being in love. Which, thanks to their chemistry, was not too much of a challenge at all. Thanks for making it easy, Italy.
