It’s no secret that with everything going on in the world right now, Italy has experienced a lot of grief and sadness. My heart aches for this beautiful country, but getting to look back on an engagement shoot I did there brings me so much joy.
Anthony and Brittany are both warm and easy to fall in love with, much like the backdrop of Lake Como Italy. Capturing their engagement photos in this place takes on a whole new meaning of special now.
This shoot ended up being sort of spur of the moment. We had originally planned to do it in Los Angeles, but after a quick change of plans, we ended up on an adventure in Italy!
I got to spend two fun-filled days with Brittany and Anthony. We went sightseeing and ate our weight in pasta! (No regrets.) This couple is so sweet and easy to get along with. I loved getting the opportunity to travel with them to capture this part of their love story.
Lake Como is home to Villa del Balbianello. Fun fact! This happens to be where a few of the Star Wars and James Bond movies were filmed. We thought that was pretty cool! This place was both historic and modern. The greenery was so lush and the villa was gorgeous. They made for the perfect setting to photograph this beautiful couple.
While there is so much uncertainty in Italy right now, what will always be certain is how beautiful this country is. If these photographs can even capture a fraction of that, then I’ve done my job. Lake Como will forever hold a special place in my heart, and this photoshoot will always be dear to me. Here’s to Brittany and Anthony’s unforgettable engagement and a beautiful wedding to follow!
