Working as a professional engagement photographer, I am often hired to capture the moment the would-be husband propose to the lady and her reaction. Lately I was asked to photograph a ‘just-engaged’ couple: the man choose a private moment of their holiday in Venice to deliver his proposal and reserved an engagement photo portrait on the day after.
High-quality couple photographs could work as souvenirs of a special time and as postcards to tell relatives and friends about their resolution.
Instead of the common thrill, coupe de théâtre, tears and cries, I captured the relaxed happiness of a couple filled with deep trust for each other and nice expectations. All their gestures and expressions were imbued with peaceful harmony..the hallmark of self-confident love!
We met at Hotel Gritti and started with some photographs on the terrace facing Grand Canal. We walked along alleys, squares and bridges. They were curious enough the explore bookshops and wine bars, enjoyed an Italian ice-cream, rested for a while and watched the sunset on the Venetian lagoon. As the sky was getting darker we completed our couple photo session with a few more romantic portraits in San Marco Square with the street lights turning on one by one…
