A sunset photoshoot to cherish your engagement forever

Some moments in life deserve to be celebrated in a special way. A way that makes them even more unique and unforgettable. That’s the case of a birth, a family milestone, a wedding, or an engagement. And what’s better than a sunset photoshoot in an incredible city like Florence, to honor such an occasion?

Kaitlyn and Marshall’s elegant sunset photoshoot

When a man kneels down in front of his girlfriend and pulls a ring out of his pocket, he casts a magic spell: he turns her into his fiancée, soon-to-be wife and lifelong companion. That’s what Marshall did, but this handsome young man and his graceful partner, Kaitlyn, went even further than that.

They wanted a long-lasting and precious memory of that meaningful event to cherish forever, so they contacted me for a sunset photoshoot around the streets of Florence. Why at sunset? Because its golden light makes everything look brighter and warmer, like the feelings they had for one another. And because the city becomes even more charming than it usually is.

Engagement photos in Florence: so romantic!

Kaitlyn and Marshall chose Florence for their engagement photos – and holiday! – and they came all the way from Missouri to personally experience the allure of the city.

Considered the cradle of the Renaissance, Florence is full of fascinating spots that work perfectly as settings for a sunset photoshoot. Its very heart, where white marble statues give way to wooden portals and to the intricately decorated façades of historic churches, welcomed the couple for a series of shots filled with smiles and emotions.

The cherry on top of the cake was San Miniato al Monte, an exquisite cathedral located on a hill that overlooks the city. The view from there is breathtaking: the whole Florence stretches at its feet creating an incredible backdrop for a sunset photoshoot. Imagine it caressed by the pleasant glow of the late-afternoon light, or just have a look at the following photographs to get an idea of that perfect alchemy.

If you’re planning a trip to Florence with your loved one and want the memory of it to be never-ending, feel free to get in touch with me for your engagement photos or any other shooting at sunset. I’ll be more than happy to meet you.
