We were six months pregnant in Italy to photograph a wedding, and as we strolled the narrow, cobbled streets of Lucca soaking in the old-world charm, we quickly realized it was a special place.
When we visited Lucca, an hour outside of Florence, Italy, we instantly fell in love with it. It has a similar old-world charm of many medieval cities in Italy, but it’s unique red tiled roofs and surrounding wall set it apart from many other cities. The wall used to serve as protection against invasion during etruscan rule, but now it’s a gorgeous pedestrian promenade that circumvents the city. We hopped on cruiser bikes and toured around the wall, gaining beautiful vantages of this city that you aren’t able to get in others. We loved our time there so much, that we decided to put “Lucca” at the top of our list for baby names. When he was born three months later, we both looked at each other in the delivery room and without hesitation decided his name was Lucca. He lives up to his name, as a “bringer of light” every single day.
