The day you have dreamt of, imagined and thought about thousands of times in your life has arrived at last, your own wedding day with its unique wealth of emotions. Emotions that come from your past: school, your first love, your first kiss, infatuation and passion. They all make sense when you meet your life soulmate and they can be materialized in your marriage promise, when your lifelong dream becomes a reality at last.

The period that precedes the ceremony has a particular significance for the future couple. So they decide to entrust this special memory to a "photographic engagement session", as it is called in the USA, where it has already become a norm.

It is a kind of "prequel" to the marriage photographs, but it has a different language and photographic approach.There are no guests or public rituals to immortalize, just the engaged couple in casual dress, photographed in romantic, amusing and original poses.

The chosen location is usually a place which has a special memory for the couple: the first meeting, the first kiss, the first shared holiday or the proposal, but they can choose any place they like that has the colour and atmosphere they want to tell their love story.

For the photographers the engagement session is a perfect moment to get to know the bride and groom and help them get used to the photographic lense, so that on the great day they are not camera shy. Shooting in this relaxed atmosphere helps to create trust and a good relationship which is essential for the wedding day where there is less time due to the ceremony timetable.

These photos provide the couple with an important chapter to add to their memory keepsake album and give a touch of originality which can be used for the invitations, table decorations, menus, presents for the guests so they will have a special memory of the day to take home with them.

Without doubt after the long period of preparation and organization, the actual wedding day slips away frenetically leaving the bride and groom with the sensation that time has flown.

At the end of the day, when tiredness and happiness replace the initial emotions, the memories remain of each significant moment of the ceremony: waiting for the bride, the bride's entrance in Church, the exchange of wedding rings, the embrace of friends, moments of collective joy and laughter.

But there are also many moments unseen by the couple, which contribute to this special day: touching glances of the nostalgic parents, the distracted children at play and what is never missing the “divertissement”, the moment when something unexpected and funny happens.

The photographer's task is to collect and immortalize these moments for future generations of the new family, but also for the parents, relations and friends as tangible memories of their shared joy on that festive day.

The photos must not only bring back to mind the moment and freeze it in time but also help you relive that moment with all its sensations. Nothing is better than “a memory keepsake” of that special day to hold and transmit those sensations and emotions.

For this reason Foto D'arte Firenze has always taken great care to present

exclusive, elegant and quality fine art prints, choosing materials which will last through the test of time.

Your box of prints will become a work of art, a treasure chest where every print is a never to be forgotten thought carved in your memory forever.

Close to Piazza della Repubblica, in the heart of Florence, Palazzo Davanzati is a "must" for anyone who wants to feel the atmosphere of a typical Florentine mansion during the Renaissance.

It has survived the ravages of time when Florence was the capital of Italy and is a rare example of hybrid architecture between two epochs, combining the typical verticality of the medieval house with its tower and the spaciousness of the Renaissance Palace spread around its central court. For centuries, it has been the frame of the public and private lives of rich Florentine merchants and their families: first the Davizzi, who built it around the middle of 14th century, then the Bartolini Salimbeni, who bought it in 1516 and finally the Davanzati, who owned it from 1578 to 1838, the year in which Carlo, the last male heir of the Palace committed suicide. 

Since then, several structural modifications have determined the building we can see today, the most significant that of the eclectic antiquarian Elia Volpi, who bought it at the beginning of 20th century and furnished it in 14th century style to destine it as a private Museum "della Casa Fiorentina Antica". It soon became a Neo-Renaissance inspiration for foreign tourists, especially Americans.

Finally, in 1951 the building became the property of the Italian State and was destined as a Public Museum. Over the years it has gathered collections and precious objects from Florentine Galleries and donations resulting in a typical domestic Renaissance environment.

Visitors can admire the rich decorations, statues, pictures, affreschi with their stories of knights, tapestries and a precious collection of finely carved furniture with objects of every day use. You can relive the atmosphere of Renaissance daily life, its commerce, chivalric love, domestic work and pastimes when Florence was "the hub" of art, culture and wealth.

The Museum was closed to the public for a number of years due to restoration. Foto D'Arte Firenze shot a photographic campaign to document its new splendour, a work of prestige which required great accuracy and competence.
