Additionals

We do above and beyond weddings:

 

from couple portraits, to proposals, to engagement parties or engagement sessions.. we love to capture every sort of event and love to be surprised by whatever your idea is.

We love to start our storytelling from the beginning... Your Engagement Shooting 

Authentically capturing just the two of you being yourselves. Imagine being in a small Italian town or up the hill of Tuscany with its unique panoramic views, surrounded by architectural and artistic wonders, just the two of you... What a memory would that be? An engagement shoot is a perfect chance to capture some stunning, candid photos of you in a relaxed environment. Plus, if you're a little camera-shy, it's the perfect opportunity for you to practice being comfortable in front of the lens, in the lead-up to your wedding day. It also will give us the opportunity to get to know each other and have some fun on the way.

Our Approach

In one word: Pure



We love to follow up on the natural course of feelings and capture those small candid moments with an artful touch. Our priority is to create a safe space to make you feel comfortable and at ease, allowing you to fully open up and be truly present with each other. Our style blends timeless elegance with a modern sensibility, capturing the beauty, emotions, and intricate details of each personality ensuring every frame tells a story that will stand the test of time.  We are for the here and now. We want you to enjoy your day to the fullest, as well as have an indelible and beautifully presented memory. 
We are anti-pose, anti-cheese, anti-conventional: we believe that magic happens when there is trust and a sense of freedom and loss of sense of time. Instead of posing you, we rather invite you to connect to yourselves, open up and enjoy the journey. We will take care of everything else and capture you two at your realest & purest.

Love Words
We have collected only 5-stars reviews over the years, check all the kind words our couples said about us Click Here

"Don’t know where to start this review, so many wonderful things to say.. From the first point of contact, offering creative ideas & working around our Inspo we sent in until my partner & I finally decided on our location. On the shoot day, Matt made us feel so comfortable and worked around our camera shyness & with both of us being clueless how to pose and what to do half the time, he guided us through and made everything feel natural not forced. We actually had some great laughs and in that moment he worked his magic and knew to catch some raw real shots. Very patient and a great guy to work with. He had great ideas & went over and beyond for us. Definitely recommend!!! Once we saw the pics we were speechless, simply stunning!! Thank you a million Esme Photography 🤍"

    First of all, we feel our photography and videography works like a piece of art. If you go to our portfolio, you will see what we mean.

We believe in documenting genuine emotions and candid moments throughout your special day. Our approach allows us to capture authentic expressions, interactions, and spontaneous moments, resulting in heartfelt and memorable photographs and videos. As we put our whole heart into our work, our priority is to build a trustworthy relationship, where you can feel free to ask us questions and talk to us at any time and hopefully overtime we become natural companions of your wedding journey and it will feel more normal to have us around on your wedding day. We will do our very best to connect with you so that we will deeply understand you and to be then able to capture your essence... plus some art. We truly manage every single wedding as it would be the only one we will ever shoot. Be aware, that we can get emotional by hearing your love story :)

    Our post-production process involves careful selection and editing of each image/video to bring out its best qualities. Our photos are hand-edited one by one, and we deliver unlimited final photos in a personalised web gallery where you will be able to download high-res photos and videos and also share the link with anyone you would like to. We apply our signature editing style to enhance colors, tones, and overall aesthetics, ensuring a consistent and cohesive final result.

  • Do you charge travel fees?
    We are based near Florence, Tuscany, and are happy to travel free of charge anywhere within 200km from this area. Anything outside Tuscany will require an accommodation for us, our quotes will always have the travel costs Included in the final price so no other expenses will come out. For events that are longer than 10 hours please consider that we might need to be there the day before to be safe that no last minute delays or traffic will surprise us, and will leave the next morning just to have time to properly rest and travel in safety.

    The first step is to get in touch so send us an email or fill out our contact form above. We then will reply and most of the time ask more questions to be able to send you the quote. Once it is all confirmed we then require a deposit payment which is necessary to lock in the date. We always send through a questionnaire and an agreement. We will be available for consultations before and after the wedding at any time:)
