Wedding photographer in Castello di Petrata – Assisi, Italy

Marriage at the Castle of Vincigliata – Tuscany The court of an old farmhouse surrounded by the Tuscan hills was crowded by a small group of guests, who were waiting to go to the Castle of Vincigliata where the wedding of Christina and Carson would take place. I enter in Christina’s room. She is standing motionless looking out the window. I see only the silhouette, the shoulders are stretched, the arms along the body and the fingers slowly moving. “Hi Christine!”, I say. She turns, she’s beautiful and tall. Eyes shining and smiling. She hugs me as a friend. “Hi Matteo, thanks for being here” Her sister on the sidelines, silent. I understand that they need a moment, I don’t  want …

La Selva Giardino del belvedere Wedding I arrive to the farmhouse the day before. The afternoon is warm, there is a bit of wind, in a couple of hours the sunset will arrive.
