A few days ago I had the opportunity to take photos for the engagement of a young couple. They chose a unique and unconventional location for the shooting, the Aquarium of Genoa. It was amazing to take photos in such a suggestive place and I think that the result somehow reflects their story.
Pietro and Matilde met three years ago when she was only 16 years old. He was almost 21 and was working as a luthier in the workshop of her family friend. She instantly liked him and even though she didn’t even know his last name, she found him online and wrote him something. They started dating and since he was new in town and didn’t know many people yet, they saw each other often. She soon realized that he was too a bit too old for her and this scared her. They made a step backwards and he turned into her best friend. After two years of friendship and different experiences things changed: Pietro and Matilde spent more time together and one evening he finally told her: “I love you from the first moment I saw you two years ago”. And that’s when she realized that if someone is willing to put aside his feelings, stay by your side and support you every day, that someone really loves you. Just a fool would let go of something so rare.
