An engagement session in Sicily. You don’t have to be Italian to make that come true, though in this case it came in handy. My next journey started in the Gdańsk airport. From there I traveled straight to Palermo, if you ignore the six hour long (OMG) layover in Bergamo. Though that turned out to be rather pleasant. I had the opportunity to wander up and down the lovely alleys within the city and taste some outstanding coffee, as well as take some photos of people on the streets going about their daily lives. All in all, this aimless little stroll lifted my spirits for the rest of the day; I could do that forever. But alas, I had to return to the airport and hop on to the plane to my destination – Palermo. There I was picked up by Maria and Christian, who were as always in good spirits. They were overjoyed not only by what we were planning for that day, but also by our plans for the next day. To be more exact – their wedding and reception. But more about that in the next post. There will be much to see….


I did a little research about where we could get a nice engagement session done, as I typically do, but I had a feeling I might be in for a surprise. I was right. My lovebirds had very little free time, thus I was forced to think of something “on the spot”. In the end, after we left the airport, we decided to look for any possible locations, and, practically in tandem, we turned our eyes to the coast. It was beautiful, sunny and practically deserted. We strolled across the sand, talking, enjoying the views, taking a breather. Bliss!


Sometimes stuff happens. We have plans, but then those go out the window due to things we can’t control. I didn’t want to tire out Maria and Christian. I knew they still had a lot to do that day. They had their Big Day to think of as well. Keeping that in mind, I tried to do my job as fast as I could, while giving them some breathing space before the wedding at the same time. We still had to pick up the wedding rings, a little pre-wedding tradition of theirs. Christian also insisted I had to try the local delicacies. I wasn’t about to argue. In the end, we were all happy and satisfied. If you’re wondering about the engagement session, you could check out the post on it right here.
