True feelings, lovely memories, beautiful images
Welcome! I’m Luca
To be a Venice wedding photographer means to be deeply in love with a city that is one of the most sought after destinations by lovers around the world.
Venice is a uniquely exciting, romantic, unforgettable location. A one of a kind setting to experience one of the most important moments in the life of a couple: destination weddings, of course, but also proposals, engagements, pre-weddings, elopements, vows renewals, honeymoons.
Moments like these deserve to be remembered forever with photographs that can instantly recreate the beauty, charme and importance of the occasion.
A photographer couldn’t imagine a better ambiance for creating romantic photos of couples in love.
As a venetian wedding photographer, I love to play an emotional and creative wedding storytelling, providing an artistic eye for your unforgettable wedding or elopement in Venice.
With my over twenty years of experience as a professional photographer, I’ll give you gorgeous images that are overflowing with emotions, love and authenticity.
My goal is to make your big day as memorable as possible, just like you want it to be!
Of course Venice offers a wide range of ceremony options to choose from: a civil ceremony in one of the Town Hall’s appointed sites (Palazzo Cavalli, Cà Farsetti, Palazzo Vendramin Calergi) or a religious ceremony in churches of various confession (Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, Orthodox, Anglican).
The unforgettable atmosphere of Venice makes this breathtaking city one of the most desired location also for elopements, symbolic weddings, renewal of vows ceremonies, anniversary celebrations, engagement parties, stylish honeymoons. Useless to say that Venice is host to a variety of wedding reception venues that will make your wedding party an unforgettable event for all of your guests.
A wedding photographer couldn’t imagine a better backdrop for wedding photos. The intertwined canals, old bridges, side streets, as well as the must see landmarks (St. Mark’s Basilica, the Doge’s Palace, the Rialto Bridge, the Grand Canal) display the picturesque beauty and scenic history of Venice.
On the other hand Venice is a very popular destination and you have to be prepared for the multitude of tourists that crowds the hot spots, and accept them or your wedding day could be kind of stressing. But there are some ways to avoid the crowd, if you want to.
We can plan a couple photo shoot avoiding the most famous areas and stepping into side streets and back canals, where you will see the unique atmosphere of the real Venice.
Taking a romantic gondola ride, while watching the captivating beauty facing the canals of Venice, you will experience the magic of the city from a stunning point of view.
