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.
Lately two couples hired me for a prewedding photo service in Venice. Each couple had something different in mind and that’s why
the couple portaits I made do not look the same at all.
These lovely soon to be married sportsperson had two goals for their trip: having a romantic pre-wedding photo session in Venice and taking part in the World orienteering Championships.

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.
I was lately hired by a young couple from Kazakhstan who spent a few days in Venice before their wedding and treated themselves with a pre-wedding photo service. I suggested shooting the couple portraits at sunrise and pick them up at the hotel very early in the morning.
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.
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.
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.
