The Amalfi Coast straight from my Analog Film Camera
Travelling to the Amalfi Coast
This year, I travelled in a lot of amazing places, during the latest wedding season and not only. So many beautiful weddings and international photography projects made me travel so much the last 8 months, thing that I really enjoyed. The Greek islands, Italy, Paris and Barcelona were only some of this year’s destinations. What surely amazed me the most though, was – drumroll – the Amalfi Coast.
Celebrated worldwide for its Mediterranean landscape and natural diversity, the Coast really caught our breaths! Having been an attraction to all the worldwide upper-class community for many years, last August I travelled in Italy for an amazing destination wedding and guess what, I could not leave Positano, Amalfi, Ravello and Salerno ‘unvisited’.
Beginning the Amalfi Coast roadtrip from Salerno
A quick stroll in Salerno’s medieval sector will totally convince you that this city will be an amazing experience. Not the classy figure of the ‘typical Amalfi coast’ scenery you have in mind, but still such a treasury!
Salerno is the biggest and most populated city around the coast. We made sure to visit the famous Duomo, which was really captivating (when in Italy, be sure to visit the city’s Duomo – all you may need to see will be a quick stroll away), and many other places such as ‘Giardino della Minerva’ and ‘Forte la Carnale’.
What I will definitely never forget was the city’s port and all the beautiful seafront night walks we had.
Positano and its ‘majestic’ worldwide famous scenery
What can anyone say about Positano. The famous cliffside village, on southern Italy’s Amalfi Coast, is definitely one of the most iconic destinations of Italy.
Since I was a kid, I remember myself wearing my black Rayban Wayfarers and dreaming of travelling across the Italian riviera on a Vespa motorcycle… This may sounds cliche to you but it is truth, every time I visit Italy, it feels like ‘HOME’.
When I first witnessed the famous image of Positano, the cliff full of houses, all I could say was ‘God, this is a dream’, ‘Pinch me’ and ‘I cannot believe in my eyes’. The view was breathtaking! Ah – mazing! Strolling around in the alleys of Positano, shopping from all the small boutiques around and eating the authentic Italian gelato! But what is the reason Positano is that famous?
Positano is a popular destination for couples looking for a romantic getaway. Wherever you strike a pose, the image will be a total success as the scenery is amazing in all 360 degrees. In front of you there is a beautiful sand beach with all these blue umbrellas, behind you all these colourful buildings standing upon the hill, at your right amazing shops and cafes and at your left you can see amazing raw scenery full of cliffs and greenery! The perfect place to have your portrait session or even your wedding!
Positano is a total beauty. For real, even if this kind of vacation is not your most preferred, you should totally pay a visit.
Focusing on the emotion of travelling
From my experience, travelling makes you a better person and I can also say it makes me feel ‘alive’. It teaches you how to love every moment and appreciate everything you have achieved. Meeting people of different cultures make you more patient and kind. And last but not least, travelling and discovering all this undiscovered treasury, the treasury of the ‘unknown’, will totally render you the most fulfilling feeling.
Personally, as a hopeless romantic, my life goal is to ‘travel the world’ for all the reasons I mentioned above. If you feel the same, be sure to connect as next Saturday morning, on Christmas Day, I will release a new blogpost for the main town of the coast, Amalfi.
I would be more than honoured to be part of your wedding celebration in the Amalfi Coast. Feel free to get in touch and discuss how we can turn all your dreams and plans into beautiful photographs!
