Venice is the most romantic city in the world, bridges and narrow streets form a labyrinth where it’ s very easy to get lost. But any time you get lost you find out a little of history and an idiliac scene.
Celebrate your engagement in this stunning city will be unforgetteble and hiring a professional photographer will give you memories for many years to come.
An engagement session is a portrait session of the groom and bride to be. Sometimes couple want to have a photoshoot just because it’s a great opportunity to have some professional photos in a stunning city. Sometimes they want to have an engagement session for their Save The Date cards, sometimes they want to announce to families and friend they will get married soon or for displayin their pictures during the wedding.
I usually don’t plan the exact location of the shooting. When I meet my clients we walk and stop to shoot along the way, I follow the light and I always create the best composition I can. If there is any location in mind you want to shoot I’m more than happy to hear about it!
I guide my clients for posing naturally and any pose is designed to get couples interacting as they normally do.
Many shoots are taken while the couple is not even realizing that! Most of the time they are so overwhelmed by their love surrounded by the incredible beauty of Venice that they hug and kiss forgetting for a while about me! And those are the picture I prefere!!
What period and what time is the best in Venice?
There is no right or wrong season, If you are getting married during the summer I suggest to have the engagement shooting during fall/winter. If you are getting married in a snowy time I suggest to have way different pictures during the summer.
The best light is at sunset and especially sunrise where Venice is not crowded by tourists. Getting a gondola or a water taxi drive is another is highly recommended!
