The photo above is a bride in San Miniato Al Monte, just outside Florence. Joe has a great eye and it looks like he stumbled upon a local young lady having some wedding pictures done and took the opportunity to capture her beauty for us to enjoy as well.
If I were going to Tuscany I'd surely want to see the vineyards. Perhaps I might engage a rental car by using the SkyScanner website. I found a great deal for a week with a compact car for about $100 American dollars.
Or perhaps I might want to hire a private tour guide... if so, we have TWO we can recommend! In fact both are contributors to our site... just click on the "My Travel in Tuscany" and ask Edoardo or Nicola about availability. They have a lot of great tools on their travel blog... sign up now to be on their newsletter so you can use those tools to plan your trip. They even have a great "checklist" you can access to make sure you bring the essentials.
Changgyeonggung Palace in Seoul, South Korea
Built in the mid-15th century by King Sejong for his father, Changgyeonggung Palace was destroyed and rebuilt numerous times over the years, even hosting a zoo, botanical garden and museum on the site during the Japanese colonial period. In 1983 the zoo and botanical garden were relocated and the remaining structures that still stand today include the main gate, bridge, the main hall and the council hall, plus various pavilions and ancillary halls that have been restored with as much historical accuracy as possible.
Aaron and Sarah were engaged here, Aaron choosing the site for it’s history and to honor his love, who is a historian and archivist working with museums around the world. The engagement was a surprise for her and Greg posed as just another tourist in order to capture the moment in secret.
More scenery at Changgyeonggung Palace, when fellow photographer Bayleigh hired Greg to shoot photos celebrating the adoption of Lil'Man Wesley, by his adoring new parents Patience and Brandon. Father and Son already looking alike with their matching black rimmed glasses.
Seoul, South Korea
From the ancient and traditional to the throb of modern culture, Greg's camera captures the romance of one of the largest cities in the world.
These photos are culled from a variety of Greg Samborski's portfolios, from marketing shots for Peroni Beer, to ones that were shot for high end commercial real estate brochures, they beautifully reflect the diversity in lifestyles and culture you'll find in Seoul.
While Greg shoots across a variety of platforms, from romantic and family portraits to edgy advertising art, his work is defined by a whimsical style that is uniquely his.
