Just-engaged couples seem to shine. It might be the expectation of a bright future ahead or just the sweet taste of beginning together a new chapter of their life, they always carry a special light with them. Sometimes they are able to light up a grey autumn day, sometimes they seem to shine together with the surrounding environment. Engagement photographers make the most of this unique situation.
As a wedding and portrait photographer I often deal with couples, capturing their love against the wonderful backdrop of Venice. Since they are usually living a special experience in a joyful moment of their life, my couple photographs are usually as intimate and passionate as the couple they portray.
When a couple with 2 kids hired me for a photo walk in Venice, I first imagined that a different kind of photos would be the result of my work. But I was wrong.
Autumn rain is pouring over Venice these days and calls to mind several passionate photo services I made for couples that chose to marry in the city during this season and were able to make love shine over the clouds.
One of them was a very elegant couple that planned an intimate wedding: just two couples of relatives and the wedding photographer in charge to capture the magic of the day attended the ceremony. This gave them the opportunity to savor each moment of the day without any kind of stress or hurry, focusing only on their feeling and the uniqueness of the event.
Every couple getting to Venice has its own story: a unique mix of feelings, unforgettable moments spent together, sweet souvenirs and common passions. Tim and his girlfriend love sailing, boats and water. No wonder he chose Venice as setting for his wedding proposal.

Visit Venice is enough to make you feel like living a fairy tale; if you are with your sweetheart, the tale gets even more perfect. This is why many couples treat themselves with a couple photo session during their stay in Venice. Svetlana and her husband did more: they added a luxurious frame to the fairy-tale.
Sometimes a pre-wedding photographer might be very lucky. That’s when many different elements “conspire” to help you. This was the case as I went out for a pre-wedding photo service in Venice with a young would-be-married couple.
Most of the would-be husbands spend a lot of time and energy in finding out the best way to propose to their beloved. They want the proposal to take place in a beautiful surrounding, with a romantic atmosphere and, why not, a professional engagement photographer capturing it.
At the same time they want it to be a real surprise for the girl and have things happen smoothly and successfully, just as if it were by chance. They do not want their plan to be discovered in advance.
Well, this is not so easy. Would be husbands get easily nervous and a special atmosphere might well put the girl in alert and make her guess what is going on.
Sanjee, a young gentlemen that lately hired me for a surprise wedding proposal photo service, had a very smart idea to overcome this problem.
