When Luigi and Giada almost freshly newlyweds asked us to go on a hike with them almost to celebrate their one year anniversary with a couple photoshoot, we immediately knew it would have been a hike on Monte Redentore. First, because it is close to their city, Formia, and second, because it has a spectacular view on the gulf of Formia from Gaeta to Scauri. The view is absolutely stunning and we could not have been any happier on hiking there. We parked the cars at a refuge and went from there for the whole afternoon until sunset. The weather was absolutely perfect even for the last days of September and the clear sky allowed us to see the island in front.
Luigi and Giada were so sweet, although they admitted not to be one of those lovey dovey couples who show off their love and affection in public, they were surprised by themselves in the best way possible. We were so happy to witness them being so relaxed in front of our cameras and be totally romantic and sweet with each other. They had the best laughs making fun of each other and teasing each other – it was such a great afternoon. Also, the surroundings around us were marvelous. We could have stopped every three seconds: the lights were perfect anywhere we turned.
We had in mind to go to the Eremo of St. Michele but unfortunately the sun set so quickly that it would have been quite difficult to go back to the cars with no sunshine at all. Although, this made us promise to go back there together for another amazing hike and couple photosession and go discover the eremo built in the rocks.
