Destination wedding in Sicily: a preview from a beautiful Italian-Argentinean wedding in beautiful Sicilia, Italy

Switzerland Wedding Photographer: an American destination wedding at the Bellinzona Castles in Bellinzona, Ticino

Kurt & Tara arrived from the US to make their dreams come true: getting married in a Swiss Castle!. It was a very warm summer day and the sun joined us throughout the whole celebration to make everybody feel joyful and relaxed. The wedding took place at the Bellinzona Castles; with a short outdoors’ ceremony in Castelgrande, and a couple’s photoshoot around all of the castles.

Getting married in a Swiss castle is perfect for the celebration of an intimate destination wedding. It is the dream little girls dream about when thinking about their future special day. It is the most perfect combination and the most romantic setting for a blissful unforgettable day.

As a wedding photographer I couldn’t be happier:  a short (5-hours) intimate wedding, in a gorgeous location in Ticino, Switzerland, during a sunny day and with a beautiful crowd! Couldn’t be better!

Thanks also to Ticino-based wedding planners Lugano Wedding for the wonderful organization and to Be Unique Suisse in Lugano for the preparation of the bride.

Enjoy, Marian


Wedding Photographer Florence, Tuscany: an engagement session with a dolce-vita’s flair around Firenze’s busy streets

Jess and Loc contacted me from San Francisco, California because they wanted to celebrate their engagement with a photoshoot in the beautiful italian city of Florence. As a wedding photographer who loves the super beautiful Tuscan light I could not refuse, so I took a short train ride to that gorgeous city to spend a very early morning with them.

We had lots of fun walking around the city, looking for beautiful spots and shooting in Florence’s most beautiful landmarks: Ponte Vecchio, Santa Maria Novella, Piazza della Repubblica and some of the most beautiful historical caffe’s in Florence: Caffè Paszkowski 

They beautiful wedding will take place this year in Napa Valley, the American Tuscany! Congratulations Jess & Loc, it was wonderful meeting you!

Lugano Switzerland Photographer: A preview from a glamorous session with an Arabic beauty in Lugano

It was such a fun photo session with gorgeous Adwa today. She came to Lugano on a 2 day visit and decided to book a shoot for herself to celebrate her trip and another wonderful year!  This sweet lady was all about smiles and her beauty was stopping traffic in the city! I love photographing Arabic women like her, so feminine and lively.

Thanks to Nicha Makeup for the fabulous Makeup and hair and to Hotel Villa Castagnola in Lugano for the beautiful spaces included in this shoot. This was such a fun photoshoot in Lugano. It’ll stay in memory for a long time.  Enjoy!
