Allison is a Californian bride who moved to the U.K for her British groom Joshua after 5 years of long-distance relationship. They chose to get married in Tuscany with only immediate families, that allowed a meaningful and relaxed wedding weekend for everyone. 

In Allison's words, "We really wanted our wedding day to be as relaxed and comfortable as possible for everyone. Our whole relationship was long distance which meant lots of travelling,  expensive plane tickets and an 8 hour time difference. We just wanted a day that was  filled with love and joy with our closest family members who knew our relationship best. The location of our wedding, Camporsevoli was secluded and peaceful which we felt was perfect for our whole weekend there. The whole village was pretty much empty on our wedding day so we got to drive down all the Italian country roads all by ourselves."

Allison shared, "We both loved the vintage convertible that we got to drive around after the ceremony. Especially with the floral arrangement on the back done by our florist it felt really magical."

Allison shared, "the most memorable moment was our first dance. It was raining at that point and very windy. We didn’t actually have a sound system for outdoors so we had to blast the music from inside the villa and just open all the doors and windows. But we danced in the middle of the lawn, under the lights and with our family huddled in the corner to keep out of the rain, and it felt perfect to us."

Yijin & Kaibo | Netherlands Prewedding Engagement Photography

Best Fine Art Loveshoot Photographer in the Netherlands

Yijin and Kaibo have been in love since she was living in Australia. Last year she moved to the Netherlands for him and they were finally able to reunite and start a new life together. They reached out to me to photograph their prewedding session in Delft, one of the oldest towns in the Netherlands. Because of their passion for nature and music, they chose to exchange vows in a forest nearby and he played guitar after the vows. Then we took more photos in the old town center of Delft, while they wandered around the canals and stopped for an emotional moment in front of the old church.

Deserted Day in Gran Canaria

Best Film Travel Photographer Europe by CHYMO & MORE

Travel essay taken during my trip to Gran Canaria. These islands are located at the most south of Europe, next to Africa continent. It's deserted, remote and one of a kind. Myth was the sand dunes on Gran Canaria were brought by the wind from Sahara thousands of years ago across the Atlantic ocean. Desperately romantic.

We stayed at different parts of the island throughout the trip but one of the most memorable stays was Fataga, a tiny village located in the middle of the island in the mountains. Fataga can trace its origin back for more than 2000 years when the area was inhabited by the Guanche natives. It's also a starting point of several popular hikes. Another really wonderful place was a small beach called Tasarte; we stayed there for 2 days and had the beach totally to ourselves. Though it's not as convenient as Puerto De Mogan which serves as a base for diving and whale-watching trips, this beach is so quiet and peaceful I felt like it's belongs to us. 

One of the best experiences was watching the sunset at the sand dunes in Playa del Inglés in Maspalomas. Hard to explain, but there is something with that soft golden light filling in the sky and going done the dunes. Myth was these dunes were brought by the wind from Sahara thousands of years ago across the Atlantic ocean. Desperately romantic
