Why should you book a professional photographer for couple photos in Venice?
There are many good reasons to take professional photographs and celebrate your love in Venice
Why hire a professional for couples photos in Venice? We all have smartphones and we probably take so many selfies we don’t even know where to store them.
Professional couples photographs are something you might have never considered, so here’s some reasons why I think you should do it, at least once in your lifetime. Especially if you are traveling to Venice, one of the most romantic cities in Italy.
1- You don’t want to get married, so you’ll never have wedding photos.
This a great reason to hire a photographer in Venice.
Not everyone wants to get married! I completely understand it. If this is the case with you, you might never find the right occasion to take professional photographs with your partner.
So when you are planning your next trip together, to Venice, or any other Italian gem, think about investing in amazing memories with your partner too.
It is what I call engagement or pre-wedding photographs, but regardless of the reason behind them, they are photographs made to document your love in beautiful places, with a poetic eye and an editorial flair.
2- You believe that you are not photogenic and you don’t want to waste time trying to look different than you are.
Try hiring a professional photographer and see what happens.
Another reason why some people may refrain from taking photographs is because they feel like they are not photogenic at all. And that’s why they don’t have pictures together. Let me reveal one simple secret: this is why professionals are professionals. I can make you look good even if you swear that you are not photogenic.
It happens all the time: so many people don’t know how good they look when they are full of love. I’ll give you some basic info on how to become photogenic. Then, my favorite trick to get couples out of their discomfort, is to ask them to concentrate on the partner. See each other like there was nobody else around.
Book a session to find out if my style works for you too. We can take elegant, romantic photographs anywhere in the world. And you don’t have to do or plan anything crazy: just eat a gelato, stroll around Burano or any other historical city in Italy, swim in the Mediterranean and laugh. Those are the little things you want to remember, in ten years time.
3- You want to get married, and you’d like to send save-the-date invites with a photo that really represents you.
Take couple photographs in Venice and use the photos to send beautiful invites.
A wedding is a great opportunity to share the love. To give an unforgettable party, see all of your friends and your family together in the same place, have fun. Even if you don’t see a lot of these people in your everyday life, you still want them to be a part of your big day. And you want to update them on your life plans, with an amazing picture that really represents who you are.
I love it when a couple comes to me looking for inspiration. You might like to hike: we can find an amazing hike and plan sunrise photographs. Maybe you are into architecture and art: we can plan a day in one of the many incredibly rich art galleries Italy offers.
You want to try rowing around the canals of Venice: I can help you with that, and take great photos. However you want to see yourself, I’m here to plan with you. It is really important to be able to put yourselves at the center for once. To take a day off to just be yourselves and enjoy each other’s company.
4- You want to propose in Venice and you need help with the planning.
As a couple’s photographer in Venice, I am an expert in proposals, and I can help with the planning, while also taking beautiful couple photos
A lot of couples contact me for engagement photos, especially in Venice. Venice is where I live most of the year and where I was born (and here’s my website devoted to Venice only experiences and photography). The majority of them are looking for a photographer, but also need help with planning. They want advice on how to find places and ideas for a marriage proposal. These kind of photo shoots give couples a chance to take pictures of themselves. Couple photos that are spontaneous, candid, that capture them at a unique time in life: right after they got engaged. Smiling, happy, deliriously in love. As opposed to the often rushed pictures taken during the wedding itself.
I am a naturally introverted person: I could never imagine having a person I don’t know photographing me on such a private occasion. But at the same time, I am surprised over and over by my own emotions when I see someone propose. I get to photograph something they will always remember with love and happiness. This kind of emotion is so universal: nobody can be indifferent to a video like this. That is also why there are so many wedding-themed tv shows. We all love love.
5- You want to get to know a photographer you are considering for your wedding
You don’t know how wedding photography works, but you know one day you might need a wedding photographer. That is a great reason to hire a professional photographer and see how it feels to be in front of the camera. It is so important to have a wedding photographer that you trust and whose work you really love.
Chances are that if you meet me, you are a traveler and an adventurer. I specialize in couple photography and adventures around the world, intimate weddings and elopements for refined and international couples. So your photo session in Venice could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship (as they say in Casablanca), and a seed for your destination wedding in Venice.
You don’t know it yet, but couple photography can change your life.
Once I photograph a couple I often keep in touch, through social media or through the occasional message. I see their love growing, changing. Some people split (because that’s just how life is). And some of them get married. Some have beautiful babies, some move from one country to another.
When I photograph a couple in Venice, they often share a lot about them and their love story. I am curious and so interested in learning about all the different paths love can take. The questions I ask make them think deeply and reflect on their love and their relationship.
I found myself happily surprised more than once: some people tell me that the beautiful photos and the experience of focusing on the relationship for a day, brought them to a new level. And so many people decide to get married! Even if they had told me explicitly: “Oh no, we have been together for 10 years, we don’t believe in marriage”.
That makes me feel like I have captured with my photos more than just how you look, on that specific day. While I love a designer dress and a beautiful make up and hairdo, I truly feel completely satisfied when I get to capture your authentic self and the love that connects you as a couple.
