Ikem and Ojhi are a young couple from London on holiday in Florence. I meet them on a hot mid-July afternoon for their engagement at Villa il Salviatino. This villa is a stunning and perfectly hand restored 15th century villa that lies proudly on the hillside of Fiesole, with inspirational views of Florence and the rolling Tuscan landscape. Each room has a unique décor bringing the guest back to the splendor of the Renaissance nobility. The panorama of Florence that can be admired from Villa il Salviatino is amazing. This Renaissance villa of Florence transformed into a hotel a few years ago, is truly spectacular, with the dome of Brunelleschi and Giotto’s bell tower so close to you that you can touch them with a finger.
The atmosphere that gave us the Villa il Salviatino was fantastic, elegant and hospitable, but not formal and very friendly……ideal for an engagement session! It was a real pleasure to spend an afternoon together with this two lovers. During the engagement there was much feeling between us. I would have liked to photograph them for much more time … but the evening arrived quickly.
Kind words from the couple: “We are so happy to have meet you it means the world to us what you have done. Your energy and heart is infectious. Thank you for coming and becoming part of something very special to us.”
