How to plan the ultimate destination wedding (in Tuscany)

How to plan the ultimate destination wedding (in Tuscany)

Why a Destination Wedding? Over time—and as we attended the weddings of friends—Guillermo and I developed a deep appreciation for those wedding-related elements that would one day shape our own celebration … and collectively embody the special relationship we share. One wedding on Lanai, Hawaii, immediately comes to mind, since it had a pronounced influence […]

    I hope you made it back home safely!!

    We got back very late last night, and it was straight back to work this morning which was a harsh bump back into reality.

    We got back very late last night, and it was straight back to work this morning which was a harsh bump back into reality.

    I just wanted to email you to say thank you for an amazing and unforgettable Parisian adventure.

    I don’t think I actually have enough words to express how incredibly grateful we are for your efforts and energy. You truly surpassed our expectations [which everyone will tell you were extremely high!!] so it really is a testament to your hard work.

    Your passion, tenacity, and drive to produce the best photography experience is incredible … and your work is beyond inspiring!

    Hand on heart, I am lost for words in terms of how different this experience was to my expectations: you were absolutely even more than I imagined. I knew your work was amazing and that you would deliver but this weekend was more than just delivering great photos. It was an experience and a true adventure!

    We couldn’t have got the shots we did without your inspiration, vision, and direction. You have an insane drive for delivering work that is unparalleled!

    You made us feel comfortable and brought out the best in Talv and me. We felt every emotion possible and you pushed us and yourself to the limit.

    This has now taken me over an hour to write because I am a super slow typist on the phone … but I wanted to thank you properly and let you know just how special this has been.

    Next time you are in London, you need to let us know so we can show you around.

    It’s been a tremendous journey so far and we feel blessed to have found true friends in the process.

    Roll on the wedding and post wedding shoot!

    Lots of hugs and love from the UK.

    Sukh and Talv xx

    Cengiz, I just woke up here in Hawaii to tons of texts from friends and family with their favorite shots you posted.

    The crazy part is I didn't even know all our guests have been snooping around your page on standby—too funny!

    So much buzz going on!!

    My brother—who is normally not so expressive—is completely head over heels about our pictures.

    Do what's right— stop looking at other photographers now.

    Nick Herran is ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE.

    Nick Herran is ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE.

    When my wife, Pauline, and I were looking for wedding photographers, we were kind of up in the air about whom we were going to hire.

    Many photographers we considered seemed bland and lacked flare … it was pretty much all the standard shots that every other photographer takes (including the same shots our parents got 40+ years ago :-).

    At the end of the day, we didn't want the same photos our friends have (simply because we booked their photographer). We were looking for somebody with creative, unique vision.

    That's when the magic happened: we came across the work of Adagion Studio, notably that of one of their incredible principal artists, Nick Herran.

    We were immediately intrigued and didn't turn back. It was as if we hadn’t even looked at dozens of other photographers (which we did). All we could think of was how Nick would capture our fabulous celebration.

    Cengiz and his team were wonderful to work with from day one!

    We looked forward to our Big Day, and to having Nick shoot our photos.

    And now we COULDN'T BE ANY HAPPIER!!! Nick was always there when we needed him and at the same time, his ninja-like approach rendered him practically invisible. And that's what you want on your wedding day.

    Nick was up for anything. Stopping traffic with us in the middle of a busy street? Check. Getting down on the ground to capture the perfect angle? Yep! What about climbing into bushes while kneeling into mud … all for THE PERFECT SHOT! You guessed it!

    We loved Nick's soft-spoken demeanor and were completely at ease with him behind the lens. A wedding is a once in a lifetime event and photos last a lifetime. We will never, ever, get tired of looking at his stunning work!

    You have a creative eye and are able to envision something that will turn out to be an awesome photo. The ones on this card are only a few of our favorites, and I have no clue how we are going to choose the ones to blow up in our home.

    I look at these pictures always and think of what an amazing day we had.

    Thank you again for being such an important part of it!

    Cengiz, you are such a tremendous combination of talent and humility.

    I’ve been to what feels like a million weddings and have yet to see a more passionate artist.

    Your work is ridiculously meaningful to those who relate to the world through imagery like myself; it simply transcends … and awakens my senses.

    We are delighted to have worked with you and Adagion Studio on our unforgettable engagement in Paris, and now we can’t wait to reconnect for our wedding in St. Lucia.

    Our trust in Cengiz’s experience, creativity, and artistic eye was so great that we actually gave him a mandate to review our ceremony setting and communicate to the wedding planner any changes he saw fit.
