Giulia e Stefano
Engagement session in Varigotti, Liguria
Photographing a couple is not something to be taken lightly, it means creating a visual identity that is intense and emotional where people can see themselves. I think it’s comparable to a kind of time capsule. Finding oneself and identifying with an image should in my opinion brings back dreams, sensations, and personal emotions that convey joy and nostalgia.
I love helping my couples plan their special occasion and I always try to find solutions that go beyond just taking a photo…
Giulia and Stefano wanted an intimate and emotional service in a place that was very significant to their story.
The backdrop for their images is Varigotti, a beautiful town on the Ligurian coast.
The morning started early, to arrive at the beach at first light. I wanted to capture the magical and surreal atmosphere of the sunrise. The beach was deserted but the air was warm and humid. We chose a spot on the beach where the rocks created a beautiful contrast with the sea and where the light of the rising sun created an enchanting and an almost timeless atmosphere.
The couple as often happens, were a bit shy at first but who can blame them? Those huge cameras certainly don’t go unnoticed, but soon they relaxed and began to enjoy the experience.
The sun rose on the horizon, the sky gradually changed color creating a variety of shades of blue, pink, and orange. The light of the rising sun gave the photos a soft and warm glow creating a truly magical atmosphere.
After the beach session, we decided to move to a characteristic alley in the village of Noli, where we took some photos in a more urban and romantic atmosphere.
Enjoy the view!
