Photo portraits: are you a color or black-and-white type?

Black-and-white photos get rid of the ‘noise’ of color and focus on the subject’s body shapes with a kind of ‘out of time’ flavour.

Photo portrayals are more than images: they are mirrors of a person’s distinctive physical characteristics, personality and feelings in a given situation.

By using different photographic techniques one can portray a person’s unique traits while meeting his or her own taste.

Honeymoon photo shooting: a dancing bridal veil at Garda Lake

During this honeymoon photo service at Garda Lake the bride and the groom accepted my suggestion to play with the bridal veil.

Last September a nice just-married Russian couple hired me as a honeymoon photographer to shoot them on the background of Garda Lake in Desenzano. Since the wedding had already taken place in Russia, they just wore their wedding dresses again in their hotel room, walked along the lake and posed for some shots in some romantic spots.

In order to make the photo session more dynamic and funny, I suggested the bride to play with her veil and let it dance in the air: she was glad to do it and her husband contributed to the dance. The dance began at the hotel and went on during the whole session: at the lakeside, at the lighthouse, in the gardens, etc.

As a honeymoon photographer I enjoy enlive my photographs with creative ideas and suggestions.

This is a nice example of how a little detail and a creative idea can turn a common couple photo session into some really pleasant hours and unique shots.

The young couple I shot at Desenzano enjoyed very much my idea of playing with the bridal veil during our honeymoon photo session

A Colorful Photo Portray in Venice: Shooting a Jewish Couple in Traditional Attire

One of the most exciting thing about working as a photographer for couple photo portraits, honeymoon, wedding and engagement services in Venice is that it gives me the chance to work for different kinds of clients, coming from different countries and sharing different cultures.

The first phase of Irina’s and Simon’s couple photo service in Venice enclosed shots in some romantic spots.

It was a real pleasure to hired by Irina and Simon, a young Jewish couple, for shooting a photo portrait during their honeymoon in Venice.  While we were walking along alleys and squares to get romantic as well as informal shots, I enjoyed their sensitivity and refined taste, as well as the chance to learn a bit ore about their culture.

I had the couple relax during some breaks in our informal photo walk in Venice to get them at ease with my presence and work.

In the first phase of our informal photo walk in Venice, they just behaved as most young couples in love: I had them hug, kiss, and dance in many nice Venetian spots, giving them the possibility to get familiar with my presence and work.

In the second phase of the couple photo shooting, they changed their attire and wore traditional Jewish suites which added a touch of color and a special exotic flavor to my shots.

In the meanwhile they had relaxed and were eventually feeling at ease in front of my camera and even felt confident enough to start dancing in a square. That’s why the shots of this phase look so intense and even a bit “exotic”…don’t you think?
