Beautiful Anastasia and her “brand-new” husband came to Venice for a short vacation and hired me as honeymoon photographer. We began the photo walk in the afternoon and headed to some of the many romantic spots of the city to make some intense couple photo portraits.
We stopped on bridges, in some alleys and squares of Venice to shoot some sweet photographs of the couple standing, hugging and kissing. Anastasia also enjoyed my suggestion to play with her dress to make the shots more dynamic and lively.
We also made a short gondola photo tour to enjoy the view of the channels and palaces from the water and get some more intimate and relaxed couple portraits.
As the sunlight was getting softer and the shadows longer, I made the most of this time to play with the image of the clients’ shadows in my couple shots. As the sunset was approaching I lead them to some places near the Canal Grande to photograph them with the background of the light-blue sea and the pink-tinged sky…romanticism at its best!
