Giulia & Marco | Pre-Wedding | Castello di Sismano, Italy


Welcome to the beginning of our Italian adventure. Bob, our kiddos, + I flew to Italy to host a real wedding workshop where we photographed the beautiful wedding of Giulia + Marco, along with 11 of our second shooters. Yes, you absolutely read that right. As many of you know, we host photography workshops around the world and this one was beyond our wildest dreams! With the help of our dear friends, Max + Cris who organized our workshop and introduced us to our bride + groom, we spent 6 glorious nights + 5 fun days photographing a pre-wedding session, sunflower fields, a wedding in a castle, and the rolling hills of Umbria and Tuscany... a dream come true! After countless hours of laughing and sometimes crying, we all said goodbye in tears. The friendships that were made were incredible and will last a lifetime. I can't wait to write more about that soon.


One day I dream about being a wonderful writer.... Who am I kidding? It's like saying I dream of being a rockstar. If you ever heard me sing, you would know that dream will never come to fruition. So, I decided to "borrow" the blog post of Tracey Taylor + Dee Green of 37 Frames. They are some of my favorite people in the world, you can't help but fall in love with them. They are amazing photographers from Australia who live in Japan for over 15+ years. I dream to write like them....

An excerpt from Tracey + Dee's blog:
"Rolling hills, a faraway Castle in the air, a clock tower, those doors, Romeo & Juliet windows, cobblestones & shadows, the fragrance of summer, passion, laughter and intimacy, that iconic late-afternoon Italian light, and yes, a zippy, dazzling convertible. This was how we met Giulia and Marco. She’s an architect. He works for THAT car company, Fiat. And they so incredibly, warmly and openly welcomed us into their lives. Our gorgeous Italian Wedding couple. Worlds collided. So it was quite the introduction and an incredible canvas for their engagement-session to play out on, just days before their beautiful, dreamy Italian affair. Alongside mentor and maestro Bob, we looked for the light and the moments in between. Sparks flew and this is our take on how their story started…"

That pretty much says it all... and now I bet you can understand why I dream to write like them. Well, that's probably going to remain a dream of mine for a long time. So, I leave you with this... some "dazzling" images from our pre-wedding session with Giulia + Marco at Castello di Sismano. I can't wait to share with you our experience at this amazing castle, where we all lived those glorious 6 nights. Bob + I also renewed our vows there, 20 years baby, and I can't wait to share that as well.

With love and as the Italians say "baci, baci"

~ Dawn + Bob
