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.

In the article about the memory keepsake, we mentioned a selection of photos taken to represent the key moments of the marriage day.

In the past the photographer was hampered by the great preparation needed to take a photo. Today with the digital revolution he is able to catch all those special moments and not just the ceremony ritual.

This, together with the evolution of the social network, social changes and attitudes towards marriage has radically changed the language of wedding photography which has had to meet new canons of communication.

Marriage in no longer just characterised by the institutional moments of the ceremony but inspired by the narrative of reportage and street photography.

The events which best adapt themselves to this typology are the preparation of the bride, behind the scenes on the special day, the bride and groom walking into their future with all their emotions, hopes and expectations.

The marriage, like a play at the theatre puts the bridal couple in the limelight as opposed to their private moments. Its scenes of colletive festivity exalt the family, friends, the group and the photographer must move silently in the middle of all this and catch each gesture which might best describe the mood of the celebration.

These moments interpret an artistic genre and the photographer must use his sensitivity to regulate composition, frame, effects and chiaroscura, giving a rhythm and a personal stamp to the photographic marriage narrative. Thus it becomes "a work of art".

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.

A work of art for your wedding album

With summer at the door the wedding period is coming and future couples have to make the important choice, not only of their photographic service, but also of which album to choose to recall through its colours, material and nuances the particular sensations of their wedding day.


For this reason Foto D'Arte Firenze has always been very careful in its choice of albums to propose to future couples: sobriety and elegance in contemporary taste, photobook albums or traditional albums in a wide variety of silks, satans, canvas, linen and leather made by specialized artisans.


An album which will give your photographic story a timeless fascination, a work of art able to survive time and its fashions.

WS Weddingsmiths, for your wedding in Tuscany

Wedding planner in the heart of Tuscany | Foto D'Arte Firenze @ WS Weddingsmiths

Are you looking for a wedding planner to help you with your wedding in Tuscany?

wedding planner Tuscany

Rachael Smith is originally from Chesterfield in Derbyshire, but has lived in the small town of Figline Valdarno near Florence since 1998.

Her first wedding was her own in 2000, and she went on to plan weddings for friends who had fallen in love with the idea of getting married in Italy, and realised she had a flair for organising - and being organised!

One thing led to another and local venues began to contact her, and she began assisting couples with paperwork and interpreting at wedding ceremonies on a regular basis. More recently she has been collaborating with UK and Italy based wedding planners, as well as continuing to provide assistance to local venues and she works with a network of trusted suppliers. In 2012 she decided to set up Weddingsmiths.

Weddingsmiths specialise in organising weddings in the Chianti region, in particular in the small towns and hamlets found in the hills and valleys in the heart of Tuscany. 

If you are planning to get married in Italy and would like some information about how WS can help you plan your special day, please visit this web site.
