Zhi Qi + Yunwei | Marriage proposal for a young couple in love

Marriage proposal for a young couple in love

Yunwei carefully planned his marriage proposal in Venice on his girlfriend’s birthday. We exchanged emails for a couple of months to be sure we could find the right spot and the right time of day. As usual, I am happy to give guidance: most of the couples who write me have never been to Venice before! We decided to meet in San Giorgio island and then have a gondola ride on the Grand Canal. He wanted to plan a fun day with Zhi Qi and ask her to marry him in the most romantic possible way.

A beautiful love story of 8 years

Yunwei and Zhi Qi met while in high school, in Singapore. I photographed them and created a video to celebrate their love, and make memories of their big decision to get married. It was a pleasure to see such a beautiful couple!

Happy to spend the rest of their lives together, exploring hand in hand. ⁠They have been together for 8 years now (and yes, they are still as young as they look!). He had spent some time in Europe to complete his naval studies at University, so he knew a lot about Venice and its history!

It felt right for them to be taking the first photographs in the island of San Giorgio. Here there are two harbours managed by Compagnia della Vela, and an incredible view over St. Mark’s Basilica. After San Giorgio we headed to the other side to take a gondola.

Once we reached the Grand Canal, Zhi Qi was amazed by the view of the Rialto bridge. Here Yunwei proposed. She knew it was going to happen, but she still couldn’t stop the tears. It was so raw and emotional, a beautiful moment.’t stop the tears. It was so raw and emotional, a beautiful moment.

Veronica + Bhupesh = [ Myra] | Family photoshoot in Venice

Summer family photo session in Venice

A family’s photographer dream: a photoshoot in Venice, with a beautiful family, in the middle of the summer. The dreamy part is, aside from the location, that Veronica and Bhupesh’s daughter was the one calling the shots. Kids are not afraid to be photographed and it is more fun for me!

Myra, Veronica and Bhupesh’s daughter, had the chance to choose three things she really wanted to do in Europe  (one of the others was to go up the Eiffel Tower in Paris ). While in Venice, she wanted to have family pictures taken and a day around the city with someone local.

Myra’s enthusiasm was contagious: we walked around San Marco square while she followed my clues and tried some jumps. I asked her to make her parents laugh and she told a bunch of great jokes (she could be a comedian in a few years, I bet!). It is great to work with kids: they make their parents more spontaneous and relaxed, they make my job so much easier! Here’s another family photoshoot I did last year, check it out.

We met around 8 am in Piazza San Marco: not too early, not too late, with a perfect ray of light coming out from behind the Basilica. Magical. Then we walked around the Castello neighborhood until we reached a little bridge with such a perfect palette of colors. We took some pictures there and said goodbye. They were up for a day of exploration around the city.
