Arnel was wonderful to work with during our quick visit to Paris. He responded quickly, suggested our location, provided great guidance during our shoot, and delivered stunning photos of our family. Can’t wait to print our photos so we can showcase them in our house and enjoy them for years to come.-MeghanView Photographer profile
My husband & I like to have photos from our travels as souvenirs! Daria was wonderful, capturing us with the iconic Eiffel Tower as the backdrop! She was extremely easy to work with & was able to catch just what I was hoping for! I highly recommend enjoying a photo shoot with her. It was one of the highlights of our trip!-ReneView Photographer profile
Wonderful pictures! Beautiful memories captured by Eny! She communicates regularly and is easy to work with. She was so patient with my toddler and accommodating of our timing requests. I highly recommend her!!!-AmitaView Photographer profile
My partner and I recently worked with Arnel for vacation photos while visiting Paris. Arnel was a great photographer and amazing to work with. He’s very personable and easygoing, which made us feel comfortable during the shoot.

Typically when we take selfies, we get weird angles, or look stiff, so with Arnel providing us with excellent directions, we were able to get better shots than we would alone.

The results from our photos turned out beautifully. There were some sort of photoshoots already taking place when we arrived, but luckily Arnel was able to remove them from our final photos.

He has a great vision and again is very easy to work with, so I would highly recommend him.-ChadView Photographer profile

A vacation photo shoot is not only great for the photos you’ll get at the end, but also for the memories and new friends you make along the way: ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
“Sara was truly fantastic. These photos were booked months in advance, and in the meantime, my boyfriend turned into my fiancé.⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
She was willing to do a mixture of couples photos and engagement photos. She helped me choose outfits in colors that would photograph best on the beach and was incredibly responsive when I had questions or concerns.⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
Once we got here, we had to watch the weather due to Hurricane Idalia, and she even reached out to change the night of our shoot to avoid rain twice!⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
We ended up having a gorgeous day (with a rainbow and everything!!!), and our pictures came out stunning. She had our photos back to us even sooner than the timeline she gave us!!⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
She is fantastic, and we will treasure these photos forever. We highly highly recommend Sara!”⁣⁣ — Daniella⁣⁣

A babymoon is a way for parents to celebrate the coming of a new member to the family, and that, of course, needs to be commemorated. ⁣
⁣
✨ And the best way to show the excitement of your pregnancy in a beautiful destination is with a photo shoot. ⁣
⁣
In the photos, you’ll celebrate the new beginning in your family and capture an intimate moment between you and the growing life inside of you.⁣
⁣
🌈 And one day, you’ll be able to create a photo album of all your babymoon, birth, and newborn photos and show your little one how happy life is throughout this journey.⁣

The people have spoken, and the top spot to propose in Florence is 🥁🥁 Piazzale Michelangelo!⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Piazzale Michelangelo is located atop a hill overlooking the entire city. The Duomo, Palazzo della Signoria, and Ponte Vecchio are all clearly visible, making it one of the most romantic and beautiful places to bend the knee! 💍✨⁣
⁣
It is also a bit far from all the major tourist attractions, helping you avoid the touristy crowds, so the trek to the top of the hill is definitely worth it.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
And even if there’s a bit of a crowd, couples can always find a private corner for an intimate proposal. 👉 Nearby Piazzale Michelangelo,  there is a great spot near Basilica San Miniato al Monte with a staircase with a great view and far fewer people.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
