The last three months have been a whirlwind for everyone. Our personal and collective lives changed and it’s only now we are beginning a ‘new normal’ way of living. During this time, our blog has felt very silent. We took this time to reflect on our wishes for the future and how we can contribute to shape a better one. We reached out to our past clients and friends asking about their current lives everywhere and to talk to us about the memories of their weddings, engagements or family photoshoots. Over the next few months we will be sharing with you their favourite stories about Italy and the photographs and videos we created together. So, lets start with one of our favorite weddings ever!
EMI & TERRY
Emi and Terry married few years ago at the beautiful Antica Fattoria di Paterno just outside Florence. We have asked Emi and Terri to tell us which is their favourite photo from their wedding and why, and these are their words: “There are a few photos that we absolutely love, can't pick just one. When we were deciding upon wedding photographers with our wedding planner, we chose Innocenti because their photos were not only beautiful and professional looking, but they had heart and evoked emotion. Not just a pretty picture, but it was like the pictures told a story.
Weddings can be crazy and chaotic. Emma and David remained professional and calm and were so patient throughout the entire day. They are kind people and if you are looking for someone who has a good eye and can capture the intimate moments, this is the team to do it.”
Antica Fattoria di Paterno is the beautiful location Emi and Terry chose for their Wedding in Tuscany. Here is what they say: “We decided on a destination wedding because my family is mostly in Poland and Terry's family is all here in Canada. Initially we thought we would have a destination wedding in Mexico or somewhere in the Caribbean but in the end we decided to go to Italy since we both really love the culture, the food and of course the wine. We were counting on maybe just a few guests and we were surprised that almost all those who we invited to the wedding accepted! Italy is beautiful and it was no surprise that everyone wanted to come. Would we do it again? In a heartbeat! We have even talked about renewing our vows or doing some sort of a 10 year reunion with some of our guests.”
These last photographs are perhaps my favourite from Emi and Terry wedding. I love the sunset light in the olive grove, and how Emi embraces Terri and they both smile with such happiness. They are in front of a camera (or two) but in this very moment they are ignoring everything else and just connecting. Also, behind every great wedding, there is alway a great wedding planner! In this case, it was Ilaria from Glam Events in Tuscany!
Last but not least, Emi and Terry were due to visit Tuscany this past May with their little daughter Elena. We planned a family photoshoot in the countryside to capture new memories for them, but their travel plans have now been postponed to September… we are waiting for you!
