St. Valentine’s day in Venice: a surprise gift for a couple in love
St. Valentine’s weekend in Venice for a romantic anniversary trip
This St. Valentine’s day in Venice photoshoot was Danielle’s idea. She and Josh found last minutes tickets to Venice for St. Valentine’s day weekend and wanted to make the best of their time here. Danielle is a professional photographer and lives with Josh in Aberdeen, Scotland (she specializes in newborn photography: check out her amazing galleries). Because of her profession, she really knows how important photographs can be in a relationship. They both fell in love with the idea of spending a couple of days in Venice, explore the city close to St. Valentine’s day. They wondered how to best enjoy these couple of days here and found my website. After a couple of messages they decided to book a romantic walk in Venice. We decided to meet in the early morning at sunrise. It was beautiful to be their photographer and celebrate their love and the years spent together as a couple.
Our morning in Venice was incredible: the sky was blue and the sun rose with bright colors, as it often happens in the winter here. While we walked and explored the city, we had time to share our experiences as photographers and comment on how beautiful Scotland is and how much I’d love to meet them and photograph them there one day! It is always special to be able to meet and connect in a way that makes it so easy to take great photos. We walked around Piazza San Marco, Riva degli Schiavoni where all the gondolas are, the Bridge of Sighs, Rialto and the fish market. They laughed, they danced, they run when I asked them too… we had a lot of fun! I gave them as much informations as I could about Venice and how to enjoy the city in a couple of days.
After I delivered the gallery Danielle surprised me with a passionate review: “You 100% HAVE to book Camilla if you are wanting to document a day in Venice. We have the most cherished pictures that we look at every single day gracing our walls and it really brings me back every time I look at them. Camilla is SUPER knowledgeable of the area ad takes her time to get you the best pictures. It is not awkward at all, super candid and laid back ad SUCH a reasonable price for amazing photography! I will likely book a photographer on all my major trips now because its really beyond amazing have great photos of us together, rather than bad quality phone selfies! Thanks again Camilla, we would even book you a second time when we come again (hopefully 2021!)”
