DESTINATION WEDDING IN TUSCANY + DOLOMITES | Alexandra & Leif
A NON-TRADITIONAL LOVE STORY FOR JAZZ MUSIC LOVERS AND ABOVE ALL REAL ADVENTURERS.
We hope youʼll enjoy this destination wedding set in Florence, Tuscany and on the Dolomites as much as we did documenting it! Leif and Alexandra showed us how similar love and jazz can be “theyʼre both made of passion, contrasts and the great ability to play regardless of any rule” (How true is that?) Leif saw Alexandra for the first time in a club where she used to sing. The way she was performing hit his heart right away. “All the sang words coming from her lips where like sweet bullets for my heart.” Leif said. “She was singing ‘my funny valentineʼ and I said to myself I have to know her” They became a jazz duo since then, as Leif was a talented trumpet player as well.
When Alexandra and Leif told us about their story we were blown away for such an interesting and intense love story. They asked us to accompanied them in their adventure, which started in Florence, with the very first lights of the day, when Leif was returning home from a jam session… They were in Tuscany a place dear to their heart, where he proposed her time before. We spent an amazing time together, capturing some cozy moments while these two musicians were composing and rehearsing for their show. Then we followed them in a renown jazz club, where they had an intimate live performance together.
Leif and Alex decided to stop for an extra day after their gig. Itʼd have been a short vacation that he organized in a surprise place (on the Italian Alps where the Lake Braies is) When we arrived on the Tre Cime di Lavaredo a heavenly and foggy view was waiting for us. And the less expected happened. Leif thought of saying his vows in a very unusual yet romantic way… he wrote a song for her and recorded it on a music cassette!
Something special happened even a few months later: a shot from the collection was named one of the winners for Junebug Top 50 Destination photos of 2018!
