“The winter light in this city! […] As long as this city exists, as long as winter light shines upon it, Kodak shares are the best investment” J. Brodsky
Venice has a unique beauty in winter, which Joseph Brodsky described in poetic terms:
“The sky is brisk blue, the sun, escaping its golden likeness beneath the foot of San Giorgio, sashays over the […] lagoon’s lapping ripples; […] under the colonnades of the Palazzo Ducale, [someone is playing] just for you, slumped in your white chair and squinting at the pigeons’ maddening gambits on the chessboard of a vast piazza. The espresso at your cup’s bottom is the only small black dot in, you feel, a miles-long radius.”
This romantic atmosphere is especially suitable to portray couples in love, being it during engagement, wedding or honeymoon photo services. Light is a great ally for the photographer and the couples enjoy a much more intimate atmosphere than in high season.
That was the case of a recent e-session. I captured the moment following the man’s wedding proposal, ‘freezing’ the couple’s excited happiness in Piazza San Marco.
I escorted them in the less known areas of Venice and on a gondola tour for a few more romantic couple portraits, before leaving them privacy to enjoy this unique time.
