Escape to Florence with this Sweet E-Shoot

My hubby and I have been creating a list of places we must visit and at the tippy top? Florence. I was there briefly in college and it was way too short – and without my special person. Florence is a city made for lovers and these two would agree. Gert Huygaerts captured their too-sweet-for-words engagement session and their Vault gallery is our wanderlust motivation destination for the time being.

From Gert Huygaerts… When Lynzie and Josh from Chicago contacted me a few months ago to see if I wanted to shoot their wedding next year, I didn’t really doubt for more than a second… as Lynzie knew exactly what she wanted being a wedding photographer herself.

Having a wedding in Tuscany and with Lynzie and Josh looking for a wedding venue for their big day, we decided to have their engagement shoot in the wonderful city of Florence… it was full spring and the temperature was nice, so the moods were good!

In the amazing old architecture of this Italian masterpiece, we had the most beautiful views and moments full of love… an Italian dream come true!

I’m already looking forward to next summer when they will be coming back to Europe to have their big day. It will sure be a day full of love in an amazing place… I can already feel that!

A Wedding Squad We Dream of Being a Part Of

Not only does this rooftop cocktail and floral crown party look so fun but it’s super chic too! From the fresh flower decorated cake to the jewel-toned geodes, I’m sold on every design detail chosen by this posse of planners and photographers. With the talented likes of Santorini Glam Weddings, Tie The Knot Santorini and Santorini Bliss Weddings, it should be no surprise. Anna Roussos and SoVisual Photography captured all the fun and this Vault gallery is what makes this Wednesday pretty great.

From the Girls… We are so lucky to be working with friends! Here in Santorini we have created a wonderful group of wedding vendor friends! We share so many professional and personal moments together. This year we decided to create a new tradition, to celebrate the beginning of wedding season by throwing a cocktail party for ourselves!

Our day started with a stroll at the stunning village of Oia, in Santorini. Us girls, all dressed up, walked in the picturesque paths of Oia and actually being in front of the camera for once was a terrific experience! Anna Roussos had a double role this time, she was both in front and behind the camera, taking these beautiful photographs of the day with the help of lovely Sandy and Odysseas from SoVisual Photography.

Closer to the sunset time, the best time on a summer day, we went to Sphinx Wine bar in Oia, a listed 1850 mansion, with a cellar including more than 300 labels of local, Greek and international wines. Great wine, delicious canapés and creative cocktails. What else could we ask for?

Maria from Tie the Knot in Santorini, Evita from Santorini Glam Weddings and Manto from Santorini Bliss Weddings (or we can just put “us wedding designers”) designed a fresh and elegant tablescape with all the lovely details that we like to design for our lovely brides. We loved the super yummy cocktails and spoiled ourselves with Alexandra’s divine dessert tapas, and a lemon ginger tart decorated with fresh flowers! We even assembled a flower bar, where we created flower crowns, and flowers cones, having super amusing moments. The flowers, from Myrto and Betty Flowers, were our favourite; king proteas, peonies, hydrangeas and blue thistles.

It really was a day to remember! We had so much fun creating and celebrating at the same time! Cannot wait to repeat next year!

This Parisian Engagement Session Delivers Major Goals

Can we please discuss how incredibly CHIC this engagement session is? For starters, what’s better than running through the cobblestone streets of Paris with the one you love? I’ll tell you what, absolutely nothing – that’s what. And thanks to the talented Romance Weddings we’re proving just that with this The Vault!

From Romance WeddingsSlip off your sparkly shoes, pour yourself a glass of champagne, and imagine you’re strolling through the streets of Paris with your love!

Clara and Carlos are getting married in July of 2016 and I’m so excited that they’ve asked me to help them plan and style their dreamy engagement session in Paris. Clara wore an amazing ethereal gown by @dreamsbyisabella.

This selection of images are like a little peek their session. We wanted the overall look of the shoot to reflect the two of them as a couple and this is why specifically looked for a film photographer for the dreamy and timeless nature of this old- photography medium.

It is always a pleasure when we (Mar and Joseba) can shoot in dreamy destination as Paris certainly is!
