From Erika Parker... For the last year, I'd been planning a trip to Italy, I couldn't wait. I couldn't wait to eat spaghetti, and ravioli, and pizza, or to wander winding medieval streets. Then about six months into planning my trip, I woke up with the crazy idea, that if I was going to Italy, how in the world could I go and not plan a styled shoot while I was there? I had no idea how I would make this happen, but I emailed a handful of planners, some that I found online, and others that had been recommended.

Federica Beni was recommended to me by another photographer, and when she replied, I knew we would be a great fit. Sure enough, Federica and I had similar styles, and ideas for how we would want the shoot to go. We had an amazing engagement shoot in the little town of Sirolo. In the summertime, it's a place people from all over Italy, and other parts of Europe, come to for the beautiful beach, and turquoise water.

The day we were there, it was still a bit chilly, and it was overcast, which I almost loved more. You don't always have perfect weather on a wedding day or the day you schedule your engagement shoot. I thought this was so perfect. The fog had rolled in to the cliff side, and added a magical element to the beach. The town of Sirolo was perfect. It has been there since medieval times, which isn't hard to imagine in its winding streets and stone walls. It was so amazing to collaborate with vendors from halfway around the world and be able to make this shoot come to life.

Peruse more engagement inspiration here!
