Some couples choose Venice as their destination of their wedding and make it a very intimate event, almost escaping (or postponing) the celebrations with relatives.
Other couples really enjoy sharing the magic and excitement of this special day with their dear ones. This was the case of Matt and Sarah, a British-Italian couple that lately chose me as their wedding photographer.
Is happiness a matter of a few, magic moments or is it rather a life-long blessing? When meeting this young, passionate couple, that hired me for an engagement photo service in Venice, I had the impression it could be both at the same time.
The wedding proposal had been delivered the day before and , thanks God, accepted. Therefore, I could only imagine the future bride struck with surprise and the would be husband first struggling against his nerves and, later on, overwhelmed with excitement, as it is usually the case in surprise wedding proposals.
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.
