An engagement photography session does not need to be boring and dull. For this photographic experience, Carmela and Danilo, our couple for today wanted to choose an exceptional location that gives off the right level of intimacy. With the help of Paolo Fererra, they traveled to the Amalfi Coast of Italy, especially Cetara and Vietri sul Mare to shoot their prized pictures. Here, Paolo showcases his wittiness when it comes to the framing of each images. Clever angles and juxtapositions create beautiful dimensions to the pictures, making it a tad different from those destination wedding brochure packages that you often see.
This pre-wedding photo shoot tells the story of a couple who throughout the day wanted to keep in mind a phrase: “the forever is not said, it is done …”. These concept arose from their love story and continue to lay a deeper foundation leading up to the fateful day to come. As it’s often said, action speaks louder than words. This heartstruck couple will do anything to keep the promise of eternity going strong. Carmela’s and Danilo’s timidity was tangible from the beginning. However, after some warming up shoots, they overcome their fears and their tone, their love, came out, flowing naturally like a free stream.
It was a day where one could not ask for better. The sun was not a headache yet strong enough to create some dramatic light and shadows. It created the right atmosphere for these seaside places and has made the pictures a frame of great tenderness and love. Colourful blue boats, palm trees and orange architecture highlighted a complimentary colour scheme that imbues the background and foreground of these pictures with some complexity and life.
The joy and touches Carmela and Danilo shared were really comforting. Looking through their pictures, even a third party like us can see how deep their affection for each other has grown. True love or not, we are not here to judge, but their constant light-hearted display of happiness and that devotion affirms their love in a way. It has that feeling of home, of belongingness. A feeling that soothes the soul just like a sea breeze.
Being in love is not their only strength. Hippieness can go a long way if done right! With their full frames specs, looking cool is not out of option! Playful and a little cheeky, these pictures show another side of Carmela and Danilo. They might be timid, but they do have some fun with each other and is not afraid at all to be their true selves in front of their long awaited one.
Hugs and sweet poses of arms forming love dominate the pictures. But it is never boring, for they have a knack in delivering the right sentiment at the right moment. Some fade offs and monotone pictures were added into the album to create some difference in moods, building up its passion and intense to more romantic ones.
Sunset is the best time to capture the loveliest pictures. Carmela and Danilo got a good deal here. Beautiful pink to purple stretched into a gradient above, the skies were clear and not much clouds were to be seen. It was a sweet, delightful moment and the pictures were not at all less great than those in the day.
Thanks to Carmela and Danilo for the romantic ride! We wish you all the best in your upcoming wedding and many sweet and blissful moments ahead.
