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.
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…
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 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!
