Engagement in Florence – Tuscany

Gabriella and Mikhail

Gabriella and Mikhail are two American boys from Charlestown (Massachusets) that I had the pleasure to meet via Giulia Alessandri, wedding and event planner.
In 2024 they are going to marry in Italy. On this special day I will assist them as their photographer. During a visit in Italy for wedding preparations, Gabriella and Mikhail asked me to have a couple’s shoot in Florence, taken in the typical streets of the city and among the most famous monuments in the world. So we decided to meet in Piazza della Repubblica, in the historical downtown. That day was one of the coldest days of 2023 winter!
But we were not discouraged at all by the adverse climate. With joy and enthusiasm Gabriella and Mikhail “challenged” the icy wind of Florence with a smile. So we enjoyed the full afternoon together touring the city.
At the end of the photo shoot we had a refreshing break in the impossible – to- avoid Florentine pastry Paszkowski in Piazza della Repubblica, where in full immersion in espresso and rice pancakes we had the chance to acquaint better and promise to meet next year, this time, with the sun and a spritz in hand! Assured! 😉
