Colorful Coastal Engagement Session in Italy

Based on this amazing set of engagement photos from the Amalfi Coast in Italy, we have a new rule: everyone must travel to Italy at least once in their life. Sounds like a dream, right? For Aston and Victoria, at least, this dream destination was the perfect choice for their engagement session with Darin Images. Turquoise seas, ancient architecture, mountainous vistas – each of these images showcases the beauty of the land and the sweet, comfortable intimacy the couple shares.

More from the photographer, Darin Images:
“When Aston asked me if I would like to shoot an engagement in Italy, I was over the moon! While we were tossing around ideas of Rome and Venice, the Amalfi coast came to mind as it had always been a dream place for his fiancee, Victoria, and for me. Apart from the beauty of the Mediterranean landscape and coastal mountains cascading into a turquoise sea in a stunning panorama of picturesque villages, how could I say “No” to the origin of vongole, my all-time Italian favorite dish?
After a few months of research and preparation, we decided to shoot between Sorrento and Salerno, encompassing the most photogenic town of Positano. For the second part of our shoot, we cruised along the gorgeous coastline up then went up to the high altitude of Ravello for the grand historic villas. Working in new places is a challenge., and I am so lucky to have such amazing support.”

How to Elope in a Simple, Beautiful Way

The concept of elopement is a beautiful thing to consider: “to run off secretly to be married.” The story of two lovers who know that they want nothing more than to be together is a time-honoured one, and while most couples choose a larger wedding with many guests, there is certainly something to be said for those who simply want to be wed. So, how does a couple elope while maintaining a simple, beautiful aesthetic that suits their personalities? These images show us that all it takes is a few simple things: a lovely dress, a non-fussy bouquet, and a special location – oh, and an amazing photographer to capture your memories forever.

More from the photographer, Amelia Fullarton:
“As a photographer, I love the idea of a low-key wedding experience that doesn’t sacrifice the visual elements and allows me to capture a few simple, truly beautiful moments. This editorial is all about two lovers escaping for a weekend away in the Byron Hinterland. It shows that an elopement or wedding can still be really incredible without a huge budget.  A heavenly dress, flowers, and a special location can simply be enough to make your day stunning.”
