Natalia and Andrej, a just-married Russian couple, decided to spend their honeymoon in Venice and hired me for a photo shooting.

Spontaneity, curiosity and youthful spirit characterized this couple in their mid-twenties and I was glad to follow their steps and looks during a relaxed photo walk with many steps in romantic spots.

They also had a nice idea: why not jumping on a gondola and going on with the shooting session on board? This gave them the opportunity to experience a traditional Venetian transport facility, and provided me with the chance to portray them with the unique background of the ancient Venetian palaces seen from the Canal Grande.
A nice and useful turn of perspective which resulted in some pleasant couple portraits of which you can see on my website.
