Elegant Tuscan wedding on Villa Agape in Florence

Свадьба во Флоренции на чудесной вилле Agape: элегантная, весенняя и нежная!

Together with the planners + designers at Le Jour du Oui, Studio Mimosa we teamed up to design an editorial that captures that feeling – of Tuscany in the spring.

We were inspired by a wonderful Italian garden on the grounds of their venue (Villa Agape in Florence) with its cypress and olive trees that seemed to create the perfect backdrop for their bride and groom.

We chose romantic dresses, soft and ethereal the fabrics and timeless, classic hair + makeup. The goal was to craft a scene that was chic, but not too formal, using a color palette that was soft, romantic + oh-so-elegant.

In the amazing setting of Piazzale Michelangelo, a short walk from the scenic area of the Arcetri Observatory in Florence, stands the Art Hotel Villa Agape, former Villa Arrighetti owned by the Duchess of Aosta.

The Villa, thanks to this fortunate position, offers to its guests beautiful rooms furnished in Florentine style, decorated with unique panorama views.
The flagship is certainly the Italian-style garden, one of a kind in Florence.

In fact, along with prestigious guest rooms and spacious environments, the green areas that adorn the property are the pride of Hotel Villa Agape, unique corners filled with flowers and fountains in which spend unforgettable moments, or organize parties and events or to celebrate your wedding.

Обработка в стиле Jose Villa

Новый тренд года – съемка на пленку.

 Самый часто задаваемый вопрос, который волнует большинство: «Можно ли обработать цифровый кадр так, чтобы он стал похож на пленку?»

 Мой ответ: Мне кажется, 1 в 1 нет, но лучше спросить у ретушеров. :) Если серьезно, я могу лишь подсказать, на что стоит обратить внимание и какие ползунки подвигать. Я придерживаюсь точки зрения: хочешь пленочные цвета - снимай на пленку, но вполне понимаю ваше желание и хочу помочь.

 Целенаправленно не даю подробную обработку какой-то одной фотографии, потому что нет волшебного пресета, который сделает вашу фотографию пленочно-прекрасной.

 Важно, чтобы вы понимали, от чего зависит цвет и могли любую фотографию обработать. Катание на велосипеде тоже не всем удалось с первого раза, так что чуть больше практики и все получится. :)

San Miniato

San Miniato is located in the lower Arno valley, on the south-eastern hills dominating the river plains, halfway between Pisa and Florence, in Tuscany, Italy. The mediaeval village of San Miniato is in the centre of Tuscany and it preserves an historic centre set on the hill top with the Cathedral, the Episcopal Palace, the Municipal Palace and the Tower Fortress dominating all the surrounding Arno, Era and Egola valleys.

San Miniato is the centre of a white truffle zone and host of an excellent truffle festival.

Discover Pienza and Val d`Orcia


Crossed by the Orcia river, from which the valley derives its name, this wonderful region is located in southern Tuscany. The area is now protected as a natural and cultural park by UNESCO since 2004.

Pienza is a tiny village in southern Tuscany in the beautiful valley Val d'Orcia. The village is located amidst gentle undulating hills and wonderful natural landscapes. Pienza enjoys a strategic position standing high atop a hill, dominating all the Orcia Valley with extraordinary views.

This charming village is widely known as the "ideal city of the Renaissance", the creation of the great humanist Enea Silvio Piccolomini who later became Pope Pius II.

Pienza is also the city of cheese! The Pecorino of Pienza is a tasty cheese made from sheep's milk, renowned worldwide and delicious.

The town is very small. But there are a lot of details in  alleys and backyards! It`s a flower paradise.

Siena hills

Tuscany is really a vast region, and with so many beautiful and exceptional places to visit that one never stops to get surprised by new fabulous and unexpected corners!
