Romantic and candid engagement photos in Tuscany

It’s always a pleasure to witness love, especially when the two protagonists are so young and full of life. The candid engagement photos of Melanie and Joshua are proof that pure and untouched love still exists. Get inspired by their gallery.

Melanie and Joshua’s candid engagement photos

The day I met Melanie and Joshua for their Tuscany engagement photos the temperature was mild and the sky was partly cloudy. One could have thought it was not the best weather for a mid-September day, but I actually think that those light conditions are the best when it comes to outdoor photography. 

Diffused and soft brightness conveys a delicate and romantic feel to the images. Especially in a setting like Borgo Santo Pietro, a splendid rural resort near Siena, surrounded by the typical Tuscan landscape. Melanie and Joshua, a young couple from New York City, chose that charming accommodation as one of the stops of their Italian holiday, and they took the chance to get candid engagement photos to celebrate their official commitment to one another.

I think that using one single location for a photoshoot is a great idea to truly enjoy the experience without having to think about moving from one place to another. And it also allows you to make good use of the time you have available.

All the beauty of love… and Tuscany

Borgo Santo Pietro is an amazing location for a shooting: it offers so many different backgrounds that you don’t really need anything else. 

Melanie and Joshua’s session started at the gem of the resort: the cypress avenue. This spectacular spot embraced the couple while they interacted with one another in a sweet and spontaneous way. The result couldn’t be anything but beautiful and candid engagement photos!

We also took some funny and joyful photos here and there, using each corner and prop that the venue offered us. I think it’s clear that they had quite some fun… and I did, too.

If you wish to celebrate your engagement with a session like this, all you have to do is get in touch with me: I’ll be more than happy to help.

I focus for capturing real, authentic and genuine emotion. I love to capture happy people, their stories, their adventures and I can’t thank them enough when they hires me for this honour and privilege.
