Working as a professional portrait and weddingphotographer 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.
Jessica and Trent are a nice Canadian couple which hired me for a honeymoon photo shooting during their short stay in Venice. This young couple shined out for their refined beauty, intense love for one another and the elegance of their outfit.
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.
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 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.
By the way what do you think of these inspiration boards?
