This shoot was one of those moments where I had to pinch myself. I was in one of the most beautiful cities in the world and I had a gorgeous couple who weren’t just willing to be photographed, that was actually our purpose for being there. I got to do what I love the most, in one of my favourite places, I have the best clients ever and I love love LOVE my job!
Anyway, back to the point ;) We had spent most of Friday shooting around Venice, in the gorgeous misty light and amazing sunset. (See part 1 here). We probably had plenty of great pictures… But Saturday morning dawned bright and clear, the sun was shining, the colours were beautiful and I had an insatiable appetite to take more pictures. Wendy and Damion had really enjoyed the experience on the first day and we’d all commented on how quickly the day went. So we decided to meet up again for a few more hours to explore more canals, bridges, alleyways and arches on the other side of the Grand Canal. I’m so glad we did!
I adore the beautiful ironwork and amazing colours textures in Venice…
Damion is actually a photographer himself, so I love this shot of him photographing his beautiful fiancée.
We were SO blessed with amazing light on both days of the shoot…
Destination Engagement shoots are definitely the way forward! So much fun and images that can’t fail to be beautiful. Shooting in Venice was one of the highlights of my photography career so far, and I’m keen to repeat the experience. Anyone fancy Paris? Barcelona, maybe Rome? ;) I have yet to shoot a destination wedding, now that really would be a pinch-yourself moment, but I have the opportunity to assist an amazing wedding photographer on two weddings in Madrid later this year. I am pretty excited about that!
Last weekend we got together for some Italian food and a few glasses of prosecco, and to view the photos. It was wonderful to relive the experience and catch up on the exciting wedding plans.
Thank you Wendy and Damion for the most amazing few days, for being so lovely, so good with Sophie and so much fun to photograph and just spend time with. I can’t wait to see you two get married :)
