It was great right from the beginning. We bonded With Twa and Len over glass of whiskey and red wine whilst we discussed their upcoming wedding day. It turned out that Twa and Len were very keen on a pre wedding photo shot and when Len mentioned that they got engaged in Venice, Italy. So the choice for the destination pre wedding photography Venice became some kind of obvious. Soon after that they got back to me saying yes, lets go to Venice, – we all got very excited. Twa booked us an apartment just a few minutes walk from the San Mark Square and we were ready to go. Due to some miscommunication a two bed room apartment we booked turned out to be a one bedroom. So yes, we shared the room, with me sleeping on a sofa bed – what a gentlemen I am I :-)))! The whole experience as you can guess helped us to bond very well. We spent two days together exploring Venice itself as well as the beautiful islands Murano and Burano. The first one famous for its glass factory and the second for its colorful painted houses. If you are visiting Venice I would strongly recommend you to go to these little islands, a water bus will take you there in an hour or so and well worth going. See few of the last shots in this post.
Natural and relaxed pre wedding photography in Venice
Twa and Len came very well prepared to Venice, with a few different outfits including a traditional Indian Sari, plus some casual and some smart cloths. All of this added to the variety of shots for different times of the day and evening. They even brought masks for the shots as per my suggestion, although not very keen on them I think one or two photos came out very nicely. We spent most of the day exploring and shooting, all natural with some kind of posing involved. All relaxed.
Engagement and Destination Pre Wedding Photography Venice, Italy
We all enjoyed the trip to Venice over the weekend, it helped us to become friends and prepared for their wedding day. Our communication which was already good, improved so much so on their wedding day (which was last week) I could feel they felt totally at ease with me and in front of the camera. This helped us to create a very good atmosphere that helped me to capture their day in a natural way – soon also on the blog. I felt like I was a guest with a camera at their wedding and this was great feeling, fully accepted by the couple as well as by their family and friends.
Please enjoy the photos and if you feel you would like to go to your dream destination for a wedding itself or a pre wedding photo shoot please drop me line and we will take it form there.
