LOVE was the leading word of this wedding. You will see it, you will feel it.

For those who missed it, It’s the second part of the Wedding in Tuscany, a life changing experience from last year and a living proof that there’s no such bad weather condition that can not be beaten by the positive energy of a happy bride and groom. A surrealistic venue, the most incredible first dance ever, special care for details, photogenic guests and vintage VW van under the same roof!

I think every respected photographer should show entire wedding stories on their blogs and websites and not just a selection of single images. A wedding is much more than 15 posed photos. It should be a balanced story from the getting ready, till the last dance. Only constant photo quality through the entire day, distinguishes a great photographer from an average one. But that’s just my opinion.

Apart from this, I’m very glad that the WPJA recognized 2 of my single images from this wedding as award winning.

Enjoy the story.

Another amazing collection of Fearless Awards was announced! Tons of inspiring stuff of incredibly passionate photographers burning their asses off to show the world what wedding photography is all about!

I’m again between them and I have to say it’s a huge pleasure to see that all the hard work is recognized not just with the clients satisfaction, but also by the judgment of the best wedding photographers around the globe.

The awarded photo is a ‘Human landscape’ taken at the stunning Tanya and Daniel’s wedding in Sorrento, featured on so many wedding blogs like Boho Weddings and the Italian Wedding Wonderland.. For those who missed this post, make sure to check it all!

Typing and canceling, retyping and canceling again.. why is so difficult to describe beautiful things? Maybe I’m just better to express myself with photos, rather than words. Or maybe sometimes words just aren’t good enough to describe what our eyes can see. Tuscany is a representative of art in the world in all the aspects. Sculpture and architectural masterpieces, extraordinary paintings and lanscapes followed by good Chianti, gorgeous food and unique Tuscan dialect, which I simply love. I’ve visited almost all the Tuscan localities designed as World Heritage Site by UNESCO.. Florence, Siena, Pisa, San Giminiano, Arezzo, Cortona, Lucca.. every time I go back, I’m excited like it’s my first time.

Tuscany could be easily compared to a perfect wedding. What you need to do is replace the landscapes and art, with friends and family. Renske and Marc were representing Tuscany, but what made their wedding special, were those landscapes and art called friends and family. It was so inspiring watching the harmony between so many people. It was magic. Thanks for such experience!

I also want to thank Aleks Kus, the best assistant possible a photographer could imagine! Never tired with a huge pocket of passion for his work, he was standing shoulder to shoulder with me on this 2 days adventure.

By the time I’m preparing the wedding post, enjoy watching the ‘Day One’ of the wedding in Tuscany.
