sunny monday today here in Lugano… seems like spring outside… perfect time for the second blog post about my perfect bride to be

arty, 

modern, 

fresh, 

romantic, 

dreamy,

yes, this is how i imagine my bride to be. 

to create an image of my bride to be i was really lucky to work with some amazing people! the lovely girls Giulia and Lorenza form http://www.petrapeter.com,  romantic dresses and accessories are the creations of the stylist  Duska Milosevic , MUA and Hair did my friend Michele Di Paolo, and arty flowers come from my favorite shop in Lugano DAHRA by Maurizio Romano.

Birthday portraits of little boy, Lugano

when i speak with my customers  or friends , especially ladies always say to me: oh, i can imagine how many pictures your kids have! they are so lucky to have mum as photographer to memories their every minute! 

okay.. shame, shame, shame!!! on me but it is only in part true..they really have many pictures but i think i should take more photos of them! i would like to capture every minute of their lives because they grow so fast! too fast for me! .. i still remember how i i came from hospital home with little cuddle and now he is five years!

have a nice week, with love jolie 

creative editorial portraits, Lugano

why it is so hard to write my blog?

i could spend 5 hours taking pictures and not getting tired.. it’s quite the opposite - the more i shoot, the more ideas are coming to take one more portrait, one more.. last one.. 

but to write five sentences of my blog is equal of ten monday mornings without coffee! 

okay, okay, this post is not about monday mornings without coffee, but about creative portraits i would like to share with you ;)

all the best to my super model Lavdrim - the perfect guy work with!

have a perfect monday, with love jolie

i just love capturing couples love!  and i was really lucky i have met this amazing couple from Lugano. 
the story about location i have chosen this time is different.. one week ago i was going with my family hiking and looking for some "porcini" .. but i could not resist taking the photos of my kids with that beautiful light.. and dreaming how would be amazing to come here again with a couple in love! and here we are one week after i have beautiful Nicole and her boyfriend Fabio who come with me to hike and take pictures. the day was amazing and i will always remember their love 

fine art fashion Lugano, Switzerland - flowers

few weeks ago i had such a wonderful time shooting fashion session with a bunch of very talented people. I met  stylist Anastasya before i went to Paris for fashion shoot and she was the one who gave to me her creation at the very last minute!  after she created a new super cool collection we decided to make smthg special. Maurizio invited us to be guest at his living style & flowers shop in Lugano Dahra (that i personally think is the best of the best).  .. and once again i had the opportunity to work with my lovely, young and so talented Michele who made our model Margarita hair and make up shine. i really can’t wait to meet and work with those people again!

enjoy our creations

wedding photographer Morcote, Switzerland - S&T

how bride&groom find the wedding photographer? normally they take one who did (shoot?) sisters, friends or neighbors weddings, reportages .. or just find one putting in google “best wedding photographer  in.. ”

Thomas found us (me and Egle) differently. as he was telling us, he just was looking smth in internet.. then he started looking for his house name in Morcote.. “casa libellula”.. then then came” libellula weddings” (we used to call like this once that was our name when we started shooting weddings). so you could imagine how important this wedding was for us and how exited we where. even before starting we were totally in love with our bride Sophie!

casa Libellula, decoration and flowers made by groom’s mum & sister, groom who sings songs for his bride and many other details made this wedding a real special one

 

engagement photography, Morcote Switzerland, K&M love

some people makes my job just perfect and so easy. recently i met and had an the honor to photographed the most lovely couple from Helsinki, Kristiina and Mikko. they were traveling around italy and switzerland to celebrate their engagement!

i  can’t tell how how exited i was when Kristiina contacted me for the shooting because you know how crazy i am about people in love.

we were going around morcote and chatting, and laughing and taking photos… and sweating because it was smthg like 34 degrees

guys thanks for such an amazing day
