Marina Grande beach Engagement Photographer
An engagement is not only an important moment per se. It is a prelude. The front lines of a neverending journey where every single day is different and every new dawn is a beginning.
Kate and Jimmy chose Italy to celebrate their promise. They flew all the way from Los Angeles to Positano, the fashion capital of the South. Not far from Naples and located on the Amalfi Coast, Positano is one of the most famous tourist destinations of the peninsula since ancient times. A maze of alleyways where, at every turn, a small shop or an exclusive boutique awaits those who seek to know its deepest secrets.
Kate took Jimmy by the hand and led him on the adventure of a lifetime. Imagine for a second being on the sandy Marina Grande beach as the sun goes down with the love of your life, or walking around the aforementioned alleys, on the panoramic roads that overlook the coast, with the boats moored at sea and the chant of the seagulls in the air. Then, after a turn, stumbling onto one of the sumptuous churches and their treasures, like the black Madonna, stolen by the pirates from Byzantium and, by a twist of fate, left in Positano; or staring wide-eyed at one of the many watchtowers erected in the Thirteenth century as a protection against external threats. Definitely an incredible place and the ideal setting for such an exciting day.
There is another element that is paramount to the success of an engagement or wedding: a great photographer. Jimmy and Kate’s romantic getaway was immortalised by Studio D’Essai. A look at the delicate shots of the couple and you will be able to feel what they mean for one another. A detail of the light touch of their hands as they sip a cappuccino, a stolen kiss while they are strolling on the Fornillo beach or the heart-warming moment when Jimmy knelt in front of his future wife to kiss her belly. Yes, you guessed it: our beautiful bride-to-be is expecting Jimmy’s baby, and the photographers gave their all so that the couple could relive those moments for years to come.
Six thousand miles from Cali to Positano, a whirlwind romance that has taken them from one continent to another. There are many miles they’ve yet to go, a billion experiences they’ve yet to live, and it all started with a first step.
A kiss on the beach in a quaint, little town in the South of Italy and a promise to be together forever.
