for wedding photographers in Toscana, Siena, Italy

 Villa di Geggiano


6-8 April 2024


Dear wedding and portrait photographers of the EU!

We invite you to participate in our art wedding workshop in an inspiring historic villa in Toscana.


We usually select the best places for our wedding photography projects. This time we decided to spend unforgettable two days together in Toscana and to photograph at Villa di Geggiano. Originally built in the 14th Century and completely renovated around 1780, Villa di Geggiano still maintains its original baroque decors, incredibly preserved wallpapers, fabrics, and furnishings. Geggiano’s salons and hallways, surrounded by century-old cypresses, oaks, and lemon trees, are an exceptional historical site, a time capsule where visitors are brought back to the ravishing atmosphere of eighteenth-century Italian Villeggiatura. A unique shooting day full of inspiration and networking awaits you! Don't miss the opportunity to get incredible shots for your professional portfolio and to jump-start your career.  


The atmosphere and entourage will be created for you by the wedding photographers with great experience worldwide Irena Balashko and Nick Zharkov, as well as Simona Parisi Wedding Planner (based in Sicily and Rome). You deserve to be unique and to distinguish yourself from your colleagues. Be well-prepared for the 2024 season!


The number of participants is limited with 12-15 people as the maximum.
