The old courtyard

Wedding Photographer in Villa Podernovo, Siena

 

Imagine an old courtyard, a place lost in time where once you could see the animals that spent their day in the sun, and the farmers got up at dawn to work the fields.

Back in those days there was always a big party on saturdays and everyone came from nearby fields to have a glass of wine and eat together and forget the toil of work while waiting for the day of rest.

This is the atmosphere that I felt while I took these photographs and I was reminded of the stories of the elderly I heard as a child.

A dive in a past that is not so distant.

While we were squeezed in an old Fiat 500 searchin ...

Romance in the rain
Wedding Photographer in Antico Borgo Poggitazzi, Arezzo   It rained so much that day. It's a day of summer and the rain can be scary sometimes. Today it doesn't want to stop, the hills are surrounded by a thin whitish mist and the wind brings down drops so thick that they it's impossible to see few meters away. It rains too much, if it does not stop we could not even leave the door. They are a few meters to walk but the rain is really too strong. Luckily we still have some time to prepare ourselves, we still have the time to hope for the rain to stop. We smile, we are accustomed to these storms, usually do not last, the sun wil ...
