10 years together, 5 years of marriage: a Wedding Anniversary in New York Couple Photo Session!
The tale of an American dream that came true. An Italian couple that has lived in New York for a long while, my very first spouses, married for five years and a couple for ten years.
A special anniversary to remember… With a couple photo session in the truest New York, between the hipster neighborhood of Williamsburg, the amazing skyline of Manhattan seen from Long Island City, and the unforgettable Times Square.
My very first shooting in the American land.
My story with Magda and Giovanni dates back to 2013 – they were the very first couple who chose me as being me to be their wedding photographer!
This awesome couple has been together since 2007, then Giovanni moved to New York for work in the late months of 2011. There he opened a branch of Punto Ottico – Human Eyes, a high-end Italian eyewear shop.
While having a long distance relationship (New York – Italy is not close at all!) Giovanni proposed her via Skype, and Magda decided to leave her Italian life behind and move to the States to join her Giovanni.
They got married in New York in late 2012, then had a second wedding (a religious one) in Italy, in late July 2013.
Five years later they love each other more than ever and have built themselves a new life in the States. They decided to celebrate this double anniversary with a couple photo session in their dearest locations of the Big Apple – so there we go!
We moved through the amazing, vintage neighborhood of Williamsburg, Brooklyn on a sunny and windy morning. Then we went to Long Island City in some fancy clothes – they had their first apartment there. Last, we went in the most chaotic and crazy square of the city: Times Square, New York City, of course!
I had some much fun shooting to celebrate this special Wedding Anniversary in New York, a city I love and love to photograph as well!
