Belmonte Palazzo Engagement Shoot: Stephanie and Barry

Even before their wedding in gorgeous Santa Maria di Castellabate, Salerno, on the Cliento coast of Italy  Barry and Stephanie fell in love with the area and for sure will be returning.  We were staying in the wonderful Belmonte Palace – were Sandy had shot at last year on the Secret Retreat Italian wedding workshop. The Palace is so handy for the town centre with all its restaurants and also for the beach with its own private access.

So we showed our couple around and took the opportunity to get a few shots to get them used to being photographed on their wedding day just two days later.  The grounds of the Belmonte Palace are a green oasis from the town and beach so provided a perfect contrast to their wedding images we would capture later on in the week.  It also gave Stephanie and Barry a little breathing space from the family and friends staying with them in their villa…always good to have a little “us time”.

Enjoy a few of their images here..if you would like an engagement shoot whether locally or co-inciding with travels we’d love to hear from you.
