Romantic photo session at Piazzale Michelangelo and San Miniato a Monte
– Caeli e Kenzie 30th April 2016-
When Caeli wrote me to ask if I was available for an engagement photography session in Florence, I thought from the very beginning that he must have been alone since he talked in first person. When he sent me a photo in order to recognize him, I had an ulterior confirm since it was a personal portrait of himself.
I was so curious about this request and I was thinking about what kind of portraits I could’ve done, but when we met on a Saturday morning in Piazzale Michelangelo I was blown up by the presence of his young wife Kenzie! They come from Los Angeles, but they’ve been separated by the ocean since Caeli works in the army in Vicenza: they decided to live a day outdoor before Kenzie would’ve gone back in California.
We had a walk together from Piazzale Michelangelo, then reaching Basilica di San Miniato al Monte.
I was positively astonished by their shy sweetness, their deep complicity, the lightness of their looks and the strong desire to live the future together!
They haven’t done anything but being themselves in front of my camera, expressing the love and the passion that joins them! It has been very moving to me: love fascinates me, attracts me, it makes me feel afraid, it makes me feel curious of its shapes, that’s why I felt so honored to witness it.
