Southern Tuscany Wedding – Sovana

Many of the weddings in Tuscany that I photograph are in central Tuscany so I was excited to photograph a wedding in southern Tuscany. Sovana is a little gem of a town that I had never heard of and I had to look it up to find out where it was. I love the events that I photograph where I have never been to the location as it means that I am confronted with a new experience and have to rely on my imagination and ability to create rather than relying on experience from past events and knowledge of what works and what doesn’t.

It was a lovely wedding for a delightful young couple and it was an honor to be invited and also discover Sovana.

    Jenn and Simon,

    You selected a photographer who is capable of elegant strong work. These are some of the most beautiful wedding photos I have yet to see. How I wish could have been there with all of you. I look forward to meeting the two of you together someday soon. Sovana looks as I remember it, and with the likes of all of you, it comes alive.
    Very best to both of you,
