“Will you still need me when I’m sixty-four?”: as the Beatles well understood, this is an important question for most people in love. They want to be sure their happiness will last forever, not only during the golden age of youth or the sweet days of honeymoon.

A vows renewal photo shooting gives the photographer the chance to portray the relationship and feelings among parents and children.

Needless to say, during our informal photo walk in Venice, I made some couple photographs in highly romantic spots trying to fully express the couple’s deep feelings for one another. It was really exciting to see long-lasting and still intense love almost shining from their smiles and eyes!

As a professional wedding, honeymoon and engagement photographer, I always aim at catching people’s feeling and relations in my photo portraits. This vow renewal photo service gave me the opportunity to get intense shots which can work as nice souvenirs of important family moments.
