Two hearts, three Countries, one love.

 

I still feel the music, the sounds, the laughs of that night.

It’s the middle of Winter in Melbourne. It’s cold, but at the same time is a gorgeous day, clear and crisp.

We are in Abbotsford, at the beautiful Convent, just outside Melbourne. And yet, we are in Italy, and we are in Turkey. Yes because the Groom’s Family is Italian and the Bride’s one is Turkish. Different Languages and dialects are spoken, different religions are prayed, yet we are all here, together, united by one thing we all have in common: LOVE.

Who: Luca&Deniz

What: Melbourne Wedding

Where: Abbotsford Convent

When: in a beautiful winter night

Why: Just Love

 

Because two is is always better than one (even with the Photographer!): these photos are all mine (and they’re just a selection) but during the Wedding I was shooting with another beautiful Photographer and Friend, Silvia, from HiSylvia Photography. 🙂

 


These photos, for me, are just perfect.

They tell the most beautiful story: a story of love, a story of great beginnings, a story of adventures lived in real life and in first person.

I can see so much of everyone’s character and personality. No need to add subtitles, no need to add filters.

I feel honoured I was there. Not just as a professional, but also as a human: it’s amazing to see and feel family and love connections like these ones.


 

What if it was you?

I don’t see why not.

 Contact me here: let’s meet, let’s go for a walk, let’s have a chat.

Let’s capture together your most special Day, your moments, your emotions.
