As you can see from many of my couple portraits, Venice is an ideal place for romantic photographs all year round. A professional photographer can make the most of the weather to make original pictures in all seasons, using rain in spring, light in winter, sunset or sunrise in summer, etc.

In winter and early spring, fog might be a strategic ally for romantic photos.

Pre-wedding photo shooting for an Asian couple in Venice

Alvan and Joyce, a couple from Hong Kong, enjoyed very much their pre-wedding photo service and tried different poses in many romantic spots of the city.

Pre-wedding photo shootings are getting more and more popular among couples from all over the world and are especially loved by Asian people. To ensure an exotic background to their couple photo portraits, the bride and groom leave their city or country and enjoy a short holiday in a romantic environment. There they hire a professional photographer and have themselves shot in romantic spots, in most cases wearing their wedding suite.

The bride and groom played with each other on the gorgeous background provided by Venice’s channels and alleys.

As the couple is shot by themselves, without relatives and friends, bride and groom are usually more relaxed and prone to spontaneously express their feelings. At the same time they are usually very excited due to the new environment and the chance they have to taste in advance the delights of the wedding day: make-up, bridal fitting, photo shooting, etc.

The couple enjoyed a relaxed atmosphere while experiencing a professional photo service, which might have helped them later during their wedding photo shooting.

A nice example of a beautiful pre-wedding photo service is the one I shot for this young couple from Hong Kong: Alvan and Joyce enjoyed a short holiday in Venice before getting married and treated themselves with a pre-wedding photo service. This allowed them to get acquainted with their beautiful wedding suites, discover the city in both its most romantic spots and less famous areas, try different poses and play with each other. I guess this helped them a lot during their wedding photo shooting back in Hong Kong, making them feel more at ease with the photographer’s work.

They also took the chance to change their clothes and wear another elegant suite in the evening. This gave me the chance to shoot some more couple photographs with the bride and the groom looking like much more relaxed in very intense or funny shots.
