Nikolai, a young Russian gentleman, lately organized a weekend trip to Venice with his girlfriend. The girl was quite happy to spend a few days in a such a marvelous city , wandering along small alleys near channels, crossing old bridges and ancient squares. But Nikolai had something else in mind.
He proposed the girl to sail the Venetian lagoon to reach a small island. Once they got there, they stopped for a while to enjoy the view. They were looking at Venice from the lagoon, admiring San Marco Square and the nearby palaces when, suddenly, Nikolai fell down on his knees and proposed the girl to marry him. She was struck by surprise and passionately kissed and hugged him for a while.
But the surprise was not yet over: Nikolai introduced to her the professional engagement photographer who, in the meanwhile, had captured the wedding proposal. Indeed, as the would-be husband wanted to keep great memories of these special moments, he had made sure that the girl’s amazement and joy were caught in photographs that will last forever.
The couple then decided to make the most of their high spirits and the beautiful Venetian surroundings to make a few more couple portraits in the city. They walked carelessly along the square, hid under arcades to kiss and hug, sat down to rest for a while…and all these moments were ideal chances to capture their passion and happiness in romantic photographs with beautiful backgrounds.
They also stopped in a wine shop to enjoy a glass of wine and, perhaps helped by the wine itself, their faces were glowing with amazement, joy and deep love, which all look quite evident in their couple portraits.
Then they walked a little longer and, as it was starting raining, a red umbrella was opened above their heads..a nice colorful touch to intense couple photographs and a great symbol of passion withstanding all weather conditions!
