What comes after “I do.” What awaits you in your journey together? Do you picture yourselves as happy and passionate as that very first day?

Marriage marks the beginning of something that should last an eternity—an idea so profound it defies rationality. This Valentine’s Day, we’ve chosen to celebrate love with a couple’s shoot, offering a glimpse into life after the wedding through photos and a video.

This couple, who have been married for seven wonderful months and whose lives are brimming with love. Their love story began with a spark, and that spark still burns brightly, fueling their passion, just as it did when they first fell in love.

We strolled through the cherished memories of their wedding day. Over cups of hot tea, we discussed their shared passions, like reading by the fireplace and their mutual love for bicycles. All of this unfolded amidst tender, intimate moments and a romantic dinner thoughtfully prepared and decorated by La Sposa degli Alberi.

Their journey together stretches out before them, and we’ve had the privilege of embarking on a small part of it, capturing it to the best of our ability in this couple’s shoot. Everything flowed effortlessly and naturally. A tightly knit couple, still experience the butterflies in their stomachs and keep the flame of passion alive.

In the language of love, French, we hear:

La courbe de tes yeux fait le tour de mon cœur,
un rond de danse et de douceur,
auréole du temps, berceau nocturne et sûr.

Mon Arlequin, mon Aventurier, ma Nuit,
mon bonheur, ma passion.

Ailes couvrant le monde de lumière, bateaux
chargés du ciel et de la mer,
chasseurs des bruits et sources des couleurs,
parfums éclos d’une couvée d’aurores
qui gît toujours sur la paille des astres.

Le rire s’est tu, les mots ne sont plus –
et plus près, plus profond, plus tendre,
plus ardent – et puis cette tout à fait
insoutenable volupté, que tu
sais si merveilleusement, si savamment prolonger.

Comme le jour dépend de l’innocence
le monde entier dépend de tes yeux purs
dans leurs regards.

I had the privilege of capturing João’s romantic proposal to Carolina in Rome. This lovely Portuguese couple, who were visiting Rome in September, began their enchanting love story nine years ago when they fell for each other while attending classes at the same university – a real-life fairytale.

João and Carolina are both incredibly warm and tender-hearted, sharing a profound passion for travel. It was this very love for exploration that inspired João to choose the Colosseum as the backdrop for his marriage proposal.

Leading up to the Rome proposal, João and I engaged in an intense email correspondence. I understand the importance of building a personal connection with my clients that transcends the professional, and João was understandably nervous about orchestrating this unforgettable surprise. We worked closely together to ensure every detail was perfect: from selecting the ideal location and timing for capturing unforgettable video moments post-proposal to planning a flawless surprise that would catch Carolina completely off guard. We exchanged messages right up until the last moment, leveraging the power of technology to make it all seamless. We even offered advice on what they should wear for this special day.

Carolina’s reaction was nothing short of heartwarming. Her boundless love for João shone brightly through her eyes as he held her in his protective embrace. João, himself, was left utterly speechless, finding solace in the warmth of their embrace.

This was a heartwarming afternoon, and the emotions of that moment continue to resonate with me each time I revisit the video. I poured my heart into creating these memories that will be cherished for a lifetime.

I’m always elated when I have the opportunity to provide my videography service in a foreign country. Being avid travelers, combining my love for exploring with my dream job is nothing short of extraordinary.

This time, my journey led me to Mexico, a land of Mariachi music, spicy cuisine, pristine beaches, Mayan pyramids, and an explosion of colors! The vibrant hues that paint the cities of San Miguel de Allende and Guanajuato make them perfect settings for an engagement video shoot.

In these captivating locales, Luis chose to propose to Marcela, two Northern Mexico natives utterly enamored with the vibrant culture and traditions of Central Mexico. Their connection was palpable.

Luis and Marcela entrusted me to capture this monumental moment in both photos and video. After collaborating with Luis, we decided that the proposal would be even more enchanting if it took place on Calle Aldama, a street that ranks among the most beautiful in the world and is the epitome of Mexican charm. This picturesque avenue boasts not only the characteristic Mexican colors but also the stunning backdrop of the Parish of San Miguel Arcangel, a church that resembles a majestic wedding cake.

San Miguel de Allende is a place that effortlessly lends itself to creating breathtaking visuals. It’s no surprise that this city is a UNESCO heritage site and also found its place in the list of Pueblos Mágicos, a collection of the most mystical and enchanting locations in Mexico. We explored various corners, utilizing striking yellow and red contrasts, or capturing moments against walls adorned with seasonal flowers. And, of course, we couldn’t miss the opportunity to film them in front of a massive cactus, an iconic symbol of Mexico.

Engagement shoots are increasingly sought after by couples, and I’m genuinely delighted about it. These sessions offer a more relaxed and personalized way to tell a love story before the wedding. Couples have the freedom to choose their settings, clothing, and other elements that reflect their unique personalities and vision. These sessions allow us to build rapport and eradicate any potential camera shyness, ensuring that couples feel entirely at ease on their wedding day.

The video unfolds with a close-up of Marcela with her eyes closed against a soft pink backdrop, symbolizing femininity, while a gentle breeze tousles her hair. To set the stage, there’s a quick montage of iconic Mexican imagery accompanied by the unmistakable soundtrack of Mariachi music. The video goes on to introduce Luis.

The narrative continues with a vivid portrayal of Guanajuato and San Miguel de Allende, playing with shadows and light. Two birds take flight as Marcela and Luis initially walk separately through the city streets, each with their gaze turned toward the camera. As their journey progresses, they slowly draw closer, finally walking side by side. Marcela opens her eyes, blurring the lines between dream and reality.

In this video, I’ve shared a love story, a dream turned into reality, in a place that truly embodies the spirit of Mexico. If you enjoyed the video, perhaps you should consider getting married in San Miguel de Allende?

Imagine a love story that transcends borders, cultures, and even the boundaries of reality itself. Zak, a Sicilian native, and Lily, an Armenian, discovered their love story amidst the bustling streets of London. Their journey led them to a place where dreams blend seamlessly with reality – the magnificent Mount Etna in Sicily.

In this breathtaking video of their wedding day, set against the mesmerizing backdrop of the Etna, we are invited to witness a love story that defies the ordinary. The video captures moments that make you question whether it’s a dream or reality, as the couple’s love radiates like the fiery heart of the volcano itself.

The Etna, known for its awe-inspiring beauty and power, sets the stage for this love story that unfolds like a dream. You can’t help but be captivated by the ethereal atmosphere, where the lines between the tangible and the surreal blur.

The video showcases the raw and unbridled passion between the couple, a love that ignited in London but found its eternal flame amidst the volcanic landscapes of Sicily. Their journey, filled with moments of tenderness, laughter, and awe, is a testament to the power of love that can overcome any obstacles, even those as imposing as a volcano.

From the magnificent Etna as their witness to the dreamy love, Zak and Lily’s video is a visual masterpiece that leaves you wondering: Is this a dream, or is it reality? The answer, perhaps, lies in the extraordinary power of love, which can turn even the most surreal dreams into beautiful and everlasting realities.
