I'm happy to collaborate with couples looking for a photographer in Florence. I'm based in Venice where I serve most of my clients, but since my life partner is now based in Florence I'm very often there and actually while talking with clients they so often visit Rome, Florence and Venice , and from time to time Milan too so the idea to offer services in a different city makes sense, to me it is as well a way to keep creativity fed by different challenges.
I'll write more about photography services I may help with in Florence but if you are looking for a quick way to contact a photographer to hire you could message me via whatsapp or reach the contact page.
What I like of Florence as an Idea for a surprise proposal compared to Venice is that while it has very romantic an scenic location it will be less obvious so your partner will be a bit " off guard" and a bit more surprised compared to an iconic and classic proposal place as Venice or Paris.
Some planning would be definitely needed, just with me for the simpler proposals and with a dedicated planner for the more complex ones. We will define the best plan so that we have both the candid reaction to the proposal and a more posed but still spontaneous engagement session (perfect for creating "save de date" images besides long lasting memories).
We could arrange to have the session split in two cities, proposal in Venice and engagement photosession in Florence or vice versa. Besides the added variety the benefit of such an arrangement lays in having time to prepare for the engagement session while having a candid reaction to the surprise proposal.
The honey moon or even a vacation could be a perfect time to create quality images to add to your lifetime of memories to be shared with close ones, images are perfect for this and while selfies have a lot of spontaneity and practical ease a professional support may actually help be a nice experience by itself.
For weddings we can talk about the city of Florence by itself or the countryside in Tuscany.
Solo travellers or just individuals in a couple or group are very stimulating clients, they will be the subject of the picture, we will need to talk a bit about what's the message to communicate and what's the audience, usually the requests I receive are one of the following:
Private portraits for memories, gifts or social media profiles (and why not dating sites).
Professional presentation and portfolio, often linked with a professional business trip.
