Visit Venice is enough to make you feel like living a fairy tale; if you are with your sweetheart, the tale gets even more perfect. This is why many couples treat themselves with a couple photo session during their stay in Venice. Svetlana and her husband did more: they added a luxurious frame to the fairy-tale.
They were enjoying a few days in Venice and hired me as their photographer to capture a special time of their love story. Everything around us looked perfect for a beautiful love story reportage: the weather was sunny, the couple was really beautiful and much in love, and they were staying at the Danieli Hotel, the most famous and luxurious hotel in the city.
The couple photo service started at the hotel, with a proper make-up session by the artist Lisa Semenzato. This made charming Svetlana look even more sensational.
First of all, we used the interiors of the Danieli hotel as luxurious background for some passionate couple portraits: the couple hugged on the terraces with view of the lagoon, walked along corridors covered with red carpets and marble coverings, leaned against antique stone balustrades and rested and kissed on soft velvet armchairs.
Then they got on a private boat for a short trip on the grand canale and the Venetian lagoon.
This gave them the opportunity to enjoy the view of ancient palaces, squares and monuments from a different point of view. At the same time it also helped the photographer to make some romantic couple photographs. The pictures turned out especially intense thanks to two special allies: the soft and gentle light of a mild Venetian afternoon and the strong passion that was so apparent in the couple’s gestures and expressions.
The photos of this session will forever work as gorgeous souvenirs for Svetlana and her husband. They will forever remind the couple of a special day: the day when they made a fairy tale come true.
