Venice offers thousands nice photo settings even in its less common areas, which might be used as background for beautiful couple photo portraits

When I am hired as a professional photographer for couple portraits in Venice, I usually propose my clients an informal photo walking tour in Venice. This gives them the chance to explore the city’s thousands alleys along small channels, its numerous bridges and hidden arcades, getting to know Venetian people’s daily life.

Olga and Dimitry, a young Russian couple, accepted the challenge and enjoyed their photo walking session in Venice very much: while heading for Ponte di Rialto and San Marco Square, we stopped in many less famous areas, exploring fruit and vegetables markets, visiting shops of postcards and Venetian traditional masks, and posing for a romantic kiss on a hidden bridge.

In order to get more dynamic and original shots of this young and nice couple I even had them jump or play-act a bit. Indeed, it was a very pleasant and exciting photo walking session for the couple and the photographer as well!
