When this gorgeous couple emailed me for the first time from Thailand, there was a lot of uncertanty about where exactly they wanted to elope in Tuscany as the choice is Unreal! They were looking for a place that was beautiful and could give them the chance to taste the famous tuscan wines.
It was a pleasure for me to help them finding the best place, l'”Olmo” a small Hotel de Charme in Pienza, ended up beign the best choice! We first met there and then we drove to different iconic places of this area of Tuscany called Val d’Orcia. We started from Pienza, that was less than ten minutes drive from the Hotel, this beautiful town gave us incredible spots where to photograph (even though we had to avoid crowds of tourists!) and on top of this it also gave us a very good gelato (see the photo below!)
At some point the sky got so dark we were afraid it was going to rain, which fortunately did not happen, on the other side the dark sky provided a very interesting and “different looking” background for our photos on top of a hill where you can see the famous “Madonna di Vitaleta” (San Quirico d’Orcia) in the distance. If you’re not familiar with Val d’Orcia just think that many famous movies like “The Gladiator” have been filmed here; the landscape is simply outstanding and has a lot to offer so deciding together the places to cover in advance, really helped us getting the best photos without waisting too much time (if we don’t count that time we litterally lost our car in the parking…but this is another story : )
After the shooting we got back to the Hotel to have a final toast and close our photography day together in the best possible way!
