SEPTEMBER 2014. As a destination wedding photographer in Italy, I have been asked to shoot a wedding in Santo Stefano di Sessanio, in the province of L’Aquila, Central Italy.
I’ts not the first time for me in this small town surrounded by the mountains of the Abruzzo National Park. The chosen venue is Sextantio, Albergo Diffuso, a “diffused hotel” whose rooms are houses of a historical, medieval village, only partially reformed. A very seductive set for me, as a lover of the photojournalistic, spontaneous, reportage style.
This time I meet a couple from Texas, USA. I suddenly fall in love with their happiness, simplicity, sweetness of the whole family and their sense of fun. Not every day, indeed, you meet a couple getting married dressing Converse shoes for the ceremony, both the bride and the groom! And this was only the beginning…
