Same sex honeymoon photography in Venice

Thanks to the magic sunset light, the background of Venice and the couple’s passion I could take intense photographs of this just-married couple.

Working as a professional portrait and  wedding photographer I often come across couples shining with happiness and almost ‘filled’ with passion. Lately it was the turn of Courtney and Kari, an American couple, whose feelings were not second to any other couple I have ever worked for but as a change from the usual routine they were both female.

Italy is not yet a country were to celebrate same-sex weddings but for honeymoons is an awesome destination.

A surprising honeymoon photo shooting: the story of a bride and her bag

During a nice honeymoon photo servce in Desenzano del Garda, the groom surprised the bride by giving her as a present a bag she was deeply longing for.

One advantage of working as a professional photographer for couples enjoying their holidays or honeymoon in Italy is that I often come across some nice stories which happen during the shooting sessions.

A few days before the honeymoon shooting at Garda Lake, the couple had enjoyed a great informal photo walk in Venice, where the bride fell in love with a bag which, so she was said, was too expansive for her groom.

Last year I had the chance to enjoy an informal photo walk in Venice with a young Russian couple who after some shots in the enchanting Ghetto Vecchio, stopped in a shop because the bride’s attention was caught by a nice bag which she insisted to buy. After a long discussion the groom persuaded her to give up this idea since, I was said, the bag was too expensive. I noticed the the bride’s disappointed expression…

Before starting the honeymoon photo shooting the couple got dressed in their hotel room in Desenzano del Garda.

A few days later the same couple asked me to have a honeymoon photo sessions in Desenzano, on the Garda Lake. They wore their wedding suites and I shot the couple on this beautiful natural background.

During the honeymoon photo shooting the couple posed in some romantic spots along the Garda Lake.

During the same session, as I was focusing on portraying the bride with her nice white dress and a long bridal veil when, suddenly, the groom arrived at the place, holding a packet with the same brand of the bag we saw in Venice.

As he approached and gave her the present, I was able to catch her face’s amazed and delighted expression: she was almost on the point of bursting into tears!

The bride was overjoyed with the groom’s present and this gave me to shoot their happy expressions and spontaneous feelings.

Smart souvenirs of your photo session: inspiration boards

wedding-photo-service-inspiration-board
Using the photographs from a wedding service I created a nice board that can be used as present for the wedding’s participants

Inspiration boards used to be (and still are) real boards made of cork or other materials, filled with photographs, scratches of newspapers and pieces of fabrics, that hang up on a rooms’ walls.

They were mostly used by creative professionals  to better collect ideas and materials and create a kind of visual description of the project they were working on.  

They soon became well appreciated not only for their usefulness, but also as beautiful “pieces of furniture”.

Nowadays everyone can create his or her own inspiration board with his or her most beloved pictures and hang it on a wall or display it on the computer’s desktop to enjoy its beauty every now and then.

I created one more inspiration board using shots from a recent destination wedding in Venice

I lately devised a few inspiration boards with photographs shot during my photo services, being them engagement, wedding, honeymoon photo shootings or portraits.

I guess they might be well appreciated by my clients as souvenirs of their own photo sessions or else offered as a present to relatives or friends.
