Engagement Session in the Streets of Ravello, Italy

You know what’s better than one proposal? Well, TWO of course! And that’s just what these two handsome sweeties did for each other, which completely melts my heart. So, it’s no surprise that they went engagementing in style (seriously good style, no less) in the streets of gorgeous Ravello, with the talented Alicia Swedenborg following closely behind. Take a stroll through the gallery, it’s a stunner!

From Alicia SwedenborgFrank and Tom met in San Francisco and started dating in 2003. They love to travel and always wanted to visit the Amalfi coast in Italy. After 10 years together last summer, Tom thought it was time to tie the knot. Tom proposed to Frank at the finish line of a triathlon and Frank surprised Tom and proposed to him when we traveled to Positano. It was on that trip that they traveled to Ravello and fell in love with the old streets and the amazing panorama view of the sea. They made a promise to return the following summer and that’s when New York based wedding photographer Alicia Swedenborg captured their love around the streets of Ravello and at the hotel Palazzo Avino. Tom & Frank wore Boss, Ferragamo, Teds shoes and Marc by Marc shirt.

Romantic Provencal Fig + Berry Wedding Inspiration

This darling shoot from French Wedding Style and Cat Hepple has me wrapped around it’s little finger. From the festive fig, berry and olive branch detailing to the wildly enchanting stationery by Nice Plume to the to-die-for dessert bar from Chef A Domicile—that dessert bar will make you need a croquembouche in your life. It’s everything I envision the perfect Provence wedding to be, and you can feast your eyes on it all here. Also, don’t miss the pretty in motion from Story Of Your Day!


From French Wedding StyleSet in the inspiring grounds of Chateau Belfonds, with it’s magnificent entrance archway, thought-provoking orchard and the stunning and contrasting background of olive farms and mountain peaks, this shoot oozes Provence.

The shoot was inspired by the warm soft Provençal light and we wanted to capture the tranquil essence of such a beautiful area, with its captivating scenery. As French weddings are often a day of two parts – the Civil Ceremony and then the Wedding celebrations – we explored two bridal ensembles.

For the Civil Ceremony, and the fashion forward bride, we showcased two two-piece bridal outfits: a low-waisted skirt by French designer Laure de Sagazan paired with either a stomach-skimming high street fashion top or a glamorous gold top.

For the main wedding celebrations amongst the olive groves, our bride shone in a gold inspired Truvelle creation with a layered chiffon skirt that billowed in the Provençal breeze. The culinary creations from the shoot drew on the surrounding area’s floral bounty of figs, blackberries and olives. The dessert bar featured a fig and chocolate éclair, mini blackberry clafoutis mini fig tartlets, macarons and a traditional croquembouche freshly made that morning at the local patisserie in Grignan.

Tuscany Engagement Session in the Chianti Vineyards

There’s no doubt that when our dear friend Greg Finck steps being the lens, magical things happen. And lucky us? We get to be witness to all the pretty through his seriously gorgeous imagery, including this perfectly lit, soaked in love engagement session in the heart of Chianti. It’s intimate and basic, but in the best kind of way and we can’t get enough.

From Greg Finck PhotographyCiara and Mark are an Irish couple from Belfast, Ireland, and had chosen sunny Tuscany for their wedding. When you’re used to grey sky and pouring rain, it’s hard not to totally fall for Tuscany, that fabulous part of Italy calling for bathing sun, easy lifestyle and awesome food and wine.

We realized Ciara & Mark’s engagement shoot just a few days before the actual wedding. Just like their wedding day, Ciara & Mark wanted a casual and intimate engagement. Nothing fancy, but just the focus on the basics: light, landscape, and obviously their love. There is a harder task as a photographer than to shoot in Tuscany. Beauty and awesome light are everywhere. So we just wandering around the Villa this lovely couple was staying, walking in the middle of Chianti vineyards, finding a meadow surrounded by cypress trees reminding us of the Gladiator movie, resting under the shade of an olive tree. This beautiful session ended with the perfect sunset, calling for Ciara & Mark to get ready for their d-day.
