There are days in your life that are indelible. Those of the first times for example, such as the first day of school, the first evening out with friends, the first kiss. Then there are days that mark you forever, in a positive or negative way. We tell the happiest days of your life, we often tell the day of your wedding, that usually is defined as THE most important day of all and of course we are the first to believe it. However, maybe to be honest it is likely THE most important day is the birth of a child. In fact, it will probably be the day that will truly revolutionize your life. And what about those nine months preceding that moment? They will surely forever be an unforgettable period, strange in some ways. The waiting, the fears, the desires, the enthusiasm; every emotion will be amplified to its maximum and a woman's body will never be so feminine. It is certainly a moment that we believe it is right to tell about.

Some women like surprises (as well as being constantly surprised) by the men they love.
Put together two people like that and you surely have an happy couple!
The proposal to Shadi by Bavand
I've always been a lover of natural light in photography. Of course, with an excellent equipment of lights and modifiers (umbrellas, beauty dishes, softboxes, grids or other) it is possible to obtain the perfect light in any environment, but it ends up losing the naturalness and the spontaneity of certain situations. And all this, especially in wedding photo shoots, is of enormous importance.
Personally I like to be as discreet as possible avoiding to influence events: I don't like my clients being surrounded by assistants with bulky lights or other objects, also because it is possible to obtain excellent results even without resorting to them.
Furthermore, in wedding photography is essential to have maximum freedom of movement and seize the moment: continuously placing lights is certainly not compatible with this philosophy!
