Gorgeous lagoon views and secret spots both worked as perfect background for romantic portraits for this couple’s anniversary in Venice

When it comes to celebrate long-term wedding anniversaries, husbands and wives might get in trouble. After having been living together for many years, they almost gave everything as present to their beloved ones, and might run short of ideas.

This is why a short couple holiday in a romantic place might be a good option. A loving husband or wife might organize a surprise trip to a place they never visited before or else to some place they liked a lot in the past. Venice works well in both cases and a couple holiday in this city cannot be but a very welcome present for any beloved one.

Winter light is a great ally for romantic couple photographs in Venice

“The winter light in this city! […] As long as this city exists, as long as winter light shines upon it, Kodak shares are the best investment” J. Brodsky

Venice has a unique beauty in winter, which Joseph Brodsky described in poetic terms:

“The sky is brisk blue, the sun, escaping its golden likeness beneath the foot of San Giorgio, sashays over the […] lagoon’s lapping ripples; […] under the colonnades of the Palazzo Ducale, [someone is playing] just for you, slumped in your white chair and squinting at the pigeons’ maddening gambits on the chessboard of a vast piazza. The espresso at your cup’s bottom is the only small black dot in, you feel, a miles-long radius.”

A funny honeymoon photo portrait for a funny couple: dancing, posing, playing…

When I am hired a professional photographer to make couple portraits (being them wedding, engagement, or honeymoon photo services) I always try my best to catch the couple’s personality in my shots so that their real nature might be well represented in the pictures and the customers will be satisfied with the final results of the photo shooting.

Exploring and making the most of Rapallo’s landscape was very useful during this honeymoon photo service with a curious young Russian couple

Beside, I try to make the shooting as pleasant and exciting as possible, so that the couple can keep happy memories of the hours spent with me and my camera. Needless to say, couples are very different from  one another and I have to adapt to their personalities and special request to have an enjoyable photo service and beautiful portraits after that.

The honeymoon photo shooting I lately did for a young Russian couple  in Rapallo (on the Ligurian coast in Western Italy) is a fine example of a nice honeymoon photo service: the couple had a lively and ironic attitude and did not refrain from playing jokes with each other, acting and posing in funny ways.

Jumping was also part of this funny honeymoon photo shooting!

That’s why, beside some romantic shots in the narrow alleys of Rapallo’s town centre or at seaside, we managed to make some funny and dynamic shots with the couple dancing, playing piano together, jumping, and gently mocking at each other, which ensured creative pictures to be taken and much fun for the couple and…the photographer himself!
