The most wonderful sunset for this pre-wedding photoshoot in Marsala, Sicily
When in early 2019 Anna and Damien booked us and told us they were gonna elope in Sicily in the end of August with only some friends and family, we knew we could not pass on the opportunity to capture the beautiful sunset of that amazing island. Marsala, furthermore, famous for its salt works, was an absolute magical place that immediately blew our minds. While almost everyone was having an aperitivo enjoying the last rays of sunshine going down behind Favignana, we walked around and close to the salt ponds and had an absolute blast with Anna and Damien, probably the most emotional couple we ever got to meet.
Even though they have been together for a few years and have already two sweet girls waiting for them at home, they hugged and kissed like their were teenagers. We would be lying if we said we did not tear up too, just like they did. The sweet tears rolling down from Anna’s cheek showed us how much these two care for each other, how much love there can be and how beautiful human relationships can be.
Photographing people during their wedding day, we always see them smile, laugh, be happy obviously, but rarely do we see them get so emotional to cry. And there is nothing to be ashamed of, nothing there to hide. This pre-wedding photoshoot was truly a blast and a recharge for our souls. When you look around and see so much negativity in the world, meeting two people like Anna and Damien, in a place so unique as Marsala is, you get to believe in Love and Beauty again. To capture their strong bond, born while being colleagues (they both work in journalism/tv/video industry) was a privilege for us. And to be part of their wedding was even better, and we can not wait to share those photos, too.
