Wedding Photography in That Little Place They Call Venice

 

Wedding Photography in That Little Place They Call Venice.

Since we began our first wedding shoot in Venice a few years ago, somehow we instantly knew there was something rather charmingly different about spending a day in this magnificent location with our special couple.

Venice Wedding Image

The fascination behind the idea of capturing magical moments of a wedding in Venice inspires couples worldwide, and in recent years Venice really has transformed into one of the most sought out locationswhen searching for fabulous shots for the treasurable wedding album!

For us as wedding photographers, step by step as we create the pages of a memorable wedding album, Venice is always an exciting place to photograph a couple in love. No other city can compare to the labyrinth of waterways, side streets and the quaint Piazza’s. Built entirely on water, it’s easy to understand why!

Believe or not, we try not to create a “typical day” in Venice when it comes down to wedding photography as each wedding shoot has its own flavour and character portrayed through the couple! Naturally, we make sure we hit the hotspots of Venice - the crowded tourist attractions that simple show everyone the beauty of a couple’s Venetian adventure but also focus on more original and authentic locations.

Venice Wedding Image

The narrow back streets and those hidden places that you’d simply miss make perfect wedding locations. Getting off the beaten track not only gives us a chance to capture more unique images, but also a little “time out” from the crowds and onlookers delighted to see a bride and groom!

On a wedding photographic adventure through the streets of Venice, this magically guarantees to spread contagious smiles and spontaneous curiosity among the locals and tourists. Feeling like a film star on the red carpet – all eyes are on you! So managing to slip away from the spotlight from time to time, is always a good move,

These are some of the reasons why we simply adore what we do as Wedding photographers and why so many decide to capture their everlasting moments in that little place they call Venice.

Loraine and Victor’s Wedding in Rome

Last month we returned to Italy, but instead of just basing ourselves at the wonderful Venice we were kindly asked by Victor and Loraine from China to create a photo-shoot towards the central Italy spending a fabulous day in the beautiful city of Rome.

Loraine and Victor’s Wedding in Rome 1

 

Our Chinese couple, who had flown over to Europe to discover the elegance, character and culture of what the capital cities have to offer, made the right choice to create a wedding photo album shot in this magnificent ancient city!

It was wonderful to explore the city, walking through the piazzas and the winding streets onwards to our planned locations in Rome. Curious locals and intrigued tourists, clapped as the wedding couple strolled by, somehow making everyone stop for a second sending out a contagious smile. The overwhelming elegance of St. Peter’s Square, the waters of Fontani di Trevei, experiencing the majesty of the Pantheon and the Colosseum were just a selection of the marvellous locations on our Rome hit-list!

Although a demanding day under the Italian heat, a very exciting and productive day creating images that will be treasured for a lifetime!

How to select the perfect European wedding photographer

 

Brides-to-be, a word of caution. Just because Uncle Joe or Aunt Sally has a nifty digital camera, that doesn’t mean you should hand over the intricate job of taking photos on the most important day of your life. We all need to understand the fact that wedding photography is an art like no other – it’s physically demanding, a stressful task, and there’s usually only one chance to capture that all-important moment. That’s why it’s a good idea to take your time and hire a professional Europe wedding photographer to handle things on your special day.

Yes – trying to make the right choice will often leave you slightly confused. There are so many so-called expert photographers out there, but you simply cannot afford to take a chance. Here are a few things you should consider when selecting an experienced photographer.

The Best Europe wedding photographer 1

Personality: Although you might feel like it, avoid making a hasty decision. Take your time to select a photographer, and always pay attention to the overall personality of that individual. Remember, you (as a bride) will be spending the better part of an entire day with your photographer, which is why it’s essential to feel 100% certain you both get along.

The Best Europe wedding photographer 2

Body of Work: Today, anyone can call themselves a pro. However, you should always select a photographer only after inspecting their work. Be ready to ask questions – ask them where they’ve travelled, how many events they’ve covered, etc. While looking at their work, try to determine if the photographer is able to shoot according to a style you’d like. Their work will also tell you about the type of photographer they are – they could be “computer heavy” stylized shooters, portrait specialists, documentary “journalistic” image-makers, or even fashion photographers. So, make sure your Europe wedding photographer has the images and portfolio to prove they have covered several wedding functions and won’t spoil your special day.

 

The Best Europe wedding photographer 3

Cameras: it’s a good idea to ask a photographer about the number of cameras they own. They should at least cover your wedding party with two cameras, as there should be a backup plan in case a camera malfunctions during the wedding. More importantly, if you’re dealing with a professional photographer, the chances are when asked about their kit, they’ll talk your ears off about the greatest and latest piece of photographic equipment.

 

The Best Europe wedding photographer 4

Commitment: Make sure you only select one photographer who is full-time and is committed to capturing high quality images. The way they present themselves will tell you a lot about their passion and professionalism. If a photographer wakes up everyday thinking about pictures, the chances are that he will go the distance to capture every moment in the best way possible.

We would like to show you some of greatest locations to take wedding shoots.
Firstly,start with the most famous square in Venice, Italy, where it is generally known just as "the Piazza".

The problem of taking great images at San Marco square is crowds of tourists,

but also the buildings around the square are tall enough so it isn't difficult to avoid crowd entering in image frame.

As you are at San Marco you also must to visit most famous caffe bar in Venice - Caffe Florian. It was established in 1720, and is a contender for the title of the

oldest coffee house in continuous operation.

One of most beautiful building in Venice is Doge's palace next to basilica on San Marco square. This part of San Marco square is also known as Piazzetta.

The Piazzetta di San Marco is not part of the Piazza but an adjoining open space connecting the south side of the Piazza to the waterway of the lagoon.

The Piazzetta lies between the Doge's Palace on the east and Jacopo Sansovino's Libreria which holds the Biblioteca Marciana on the west.

As Venice is build on adriatic sea, there are lot of water canals. You can take a tour with gondola. The gondola is a traditional, flat-bottomed Venetian rowing boat,

well suited to the conditions of the Venetian lagoon. For centuries gondolas were the chief means of transportation and most common watercraft within Venice.

If you don't like to take a ride withe gondola, you can always go by foot. The maze of canals threaded through the city requires the use

of more than 400 bridges to permit the flow of foot traffic. In 2011 the city opened Ponte della Costituzione, the fourth bridge across the Grand Canal,

connecting the Piazzale Roma bus terminal area with the Stazione Ferroviaria (train station),

the others being the original Ponte di Rialto, the Ponte dell'Accademia, and the Ponte degli Scalzi.

In next part we will show you some of greatest location to shoot wedding images, outside San Marco Piazza.
