a morning in ORVIETO || manila destination wedding photographer

so i’m a little partial to ITALIA… it’s true, you got me. if i could live anywhere in the world, hands down it would be italy. :) so until then, i will live there through the week long FOLLOW YOUR HEART TOURS… to ITALY that i put on for photographers. :)

this last week i have been, shamefully, editing my last batch of photos from my trip last fall to umbria & tuscany. i cannot believe that it’s taken me so long. i know, i DID move half way around the world and get re-established..i’ll give myself SOME slack. hehe..

but as i go through the hundreds and hundreds of images from each place we stopped in, i’m captivated, yet again. at the wonder and delight of a country that holds so much history and beauty.

one place that i will definitely go back to and spend more time in is ORVIETO. we were only there for the morning of our last day…but it was so lovely.

perhaps because it was in autumn, one of my favorite seasons, and the bare trees lined the castle walls..

then there was the DUOMO…the church of Orvieto…from down the street you could see it some of it peeking…
