Villa San Michele wedding Florence

Villa San Michele wedding at sunset. This wedding required me to work fast as the wedding took place in the grounds of Villa San Michele just before sunset, we then had only a few minutes to make use of the last light before the small wedding party had a lovely dinner on the hotel terrace.

    These came out fantastic! Jules swooped in and saved the day after a bow tie wardrobe malfunction (i.e. my inability to tie a bow tie) by quickly finding someone in the hotel who could. Jules walked us through every detail and step in order to produce amazing, genuine shots of our wedding day. He was able to photograph the ceremony even with a strong Tuscan sun glaring down on us, which makes it incredibly difficult to keep the subjects in focus with proper color and detail. Friendly, extremely professional, and displays virtuosity in his craft. We are very glad we chose him for our wedding day and will definitely refer him to others in the future. Thanks Jules!

    These photos of Lilly & Ricky are absolutely gorgeous. One wouldn’t know that the sun was so overwhelming. Jules did do a magnificent job of capturing significant moments in the wedding, including a poised bride & groom. Everything looks picture-pect there; and at the risk of sounding corny, it was like looking in a magazine with a model couple. Thanks to you, Lilly & Ricky, for allowing me to be a spectator in this breath-taking affair. Congratulations to the beautiful bride & groom and Bravo! to Jules for such a job well done!
