Brinson+Banks in Italy: a love story

Wife-and-husband photo duo Brinson+Banks recently traveled to the voluptuous Italian Riviera, and they captured the experience in all its wish-you-were-here glory. Below, some highlights…

“Back when we were Atlantans, I introduced a new friend of mine (a beautiful talented painter named Raven) to an old friend named Thomas (my seventh-grade boyfriend for all of a week, in fact) in hopes of there being sparks between the two,” explains Kendrick Brinson. “Fast forward a few years later, and we live in Los Angeles and they live in Charleston, South Carolina, together. (Yay! Matchmaking skills were a success!)

“They asked us if we would be the only witnesses to their elopement in the Italian Riviera, and who can say no to love?. So we packed our cameras and headed to Florence, where we biked around the river at sunset with sloppy grins on our faces (partially from not sleeping for 24 hours) and fell in love with the city. The next day, we hopped in our rental Jeep and road-tripped over to the coast, where the four of us spent a few days ogling beautiful sunsets and eating too much pasta and pizza.

“We all stayed in a house in Santa Margherita Ligure and explored Portofino, Rapallo, and the amazing towns of Cinque Terre. We also got to parade through the town with them, Raven in her wedding gown and barefoot and Thomas in a suit, as we made our way to the park where they would say their vows. A lot of the Italian grannies were teary and sweet and yelled out kind well wishes in Italian to the newlyweds. It was pretty much the double date of a lifetime.”
