Bridal gowns are very precious things: they often cost a fortune and are made with precious materials; and even when they are very simple or inherited , they are made precious by the feelings the bride has attached to them: expectation, joy, tenderness, sweet memories…
That is why ever more brides feel it would be too bad only wear their bridal gowns only once and like to be captured again in high quality photographs with their wedding dresses.
This was the case of a couple that lately contacted me for a “cherish-the-dress” photo service: they wanted to make the most of a short holiday in Venice and get romantic couple portraits wearing their wedding outfits once again.
The couple enjoyed a nice walk in some of Venice’s most famous spots, such as San Marco Square. They looked relaxed, overwhelmed by passion and joy, with no trace of the tension which is so common during the wedding day. They even felt at ease enough to run across the square or make jokes to one another.
A water taxi then drove us across the lagoon and the couple was captured in some romantic portraits with the background of San Marco square or San Giorgio island. The water taxi stopped in some romantic spots in the lagoon so that they could enjoy some privacy and get intense couple photographs.
The photo session ended up with a gondola tour so that the couple could relax and enjoy the view of Venice at sunset …and I could capture their passionate feelings and spontaneous, confident happiness with the background of the Canal Grande.
At the end of the day, the bride’s wedding dress was still in great shape and the bride was overjoyed to have used it again for such a special experience.
