Having a pre-wedding photo service in Venice is definitely a good idea. Thanks to such a unique environment, you will for sure get romantic photos with gorgeous background. However, if you are looking for a more creative, less touristic location ensuring similarly eye-catching result, there is a place I would recommend: Murano Island.
Murano is one of the three main islands in Venice lagoon with plenty of attractions for both tourists and Venetian people. As a professional pre-wedding photographer I can say that it also worked very well as a pre-wedding photos’ scenario with several engaged couples. Indeed, the island can offer many advantages to those couple looking for a kind of “rehearsal” of their wedding.
- A quiet and intimate environment: If you are not visiting Venice in the autumn or summer time, you might well meet crowds of people visiting the city. This is not the case in Murano, where you can always enjoy a much quieter atmosphere and get some taste of “real life” in Venice’s lagoon. You will meet much less tourists and much more children playing in the squares. This leave much more place for romantic couple portraits since couples can enjoy much more privacy and feel much more at ease in Murano’s streets and squares.
- The unique beauty of “tiny Venice”: even if it is not as famous as Venice, Murano sports the same kind of enchanting beauty you find in Venice. The architecture you find there is the same you find in the city: ancient palaces with chimneys, wooden window and terraces, arcades, channels and bridges…everything is much the same. Therefore the pre-wedding photos shot in Murano will really look the same as the ones one might take in Venice…with much less tourists walking in the background J
- Glass treasures: Murano’s most famous attractions are the glass workshops which have been producing excellent glassware since centuries and are worldwide famous for their charming beauty. While walking along the streets during your pre-wedding photo service you might visit the workshops and even get captured with some beautiful glass jewel or artwork which can add a very creative and elegant touch to your couple portraits…and even take it with you to “decorate” your wedding :-)
