This anniversary session at Villa Balbiano, located on Lake Como, was nothing short of magical. The villa’s breathtaking architecture and lush gardens provided a magnificent backdrop for the shoot. With its elegant façade and intricate details, the villa exuded timeless charm.

Morgana looked absolutely stunning in this Leah da Gloria gown. A dreamy fusion of contemporary design and traditional silhouettes with botanical embroidery that made this bridal look refined elegant. With Carlos’ classic black tuxedo they create a fashion-forward look that’s both elegant and on-trend.

Lake Como’s waters served as a mesmerizing backdrop. With the mountains in the distance and the sun casting a warm glow, each shot captured the idyllic essence of the location. Laughter, stolen glances, and gentle embraces translated into a visual love story, showing Carlos and Morgana’s connection.
