What is the best time of the day to have your photo shoot in Venice?

      You recently got engaged or married and now you want to plan your engagement / honeymoon vacation in Venice. Or you plan a romantic trip with your better half and where better to go on a knee and propose her then Venice?! What could be more romantic than your treasured Venice surprise proposal, engagement, honeymoon or pre wedding photos taken among the Venetian bridges and canals? Venice is the perfect city for romantic photo shoots! Once found your #venicephotographer you will have to define the details about your photo shoot in Venice 😊

      Planning your shooting in Venice by yourself might be tough. Even though it’s easy to find out the most picturesque places through Google Maps or Trip Adviser, it’s impossible to estimate from far tourists and lighting conditions. That’s why, thanks to my experience as a wedding photographer in Venice, you can benefit from these easy tips to create an unforgettable experience in the city of lovers. The most important aspect to consider while planning your photo shoot is the time of the day.

      The best time of the day to take photos is during the sunset and the sunrise. Period. Light is undoubtedly instrumental in photography. Did you have the chance to check out my previous blog about considering to have a photo shoot also by night? Well, this time I will explain the importance to plan your photo shoot in Venice when the floating city wakes up. As your #venicephotographer , I want to put you in the very best light during our photo shoot, and the best time in Venice for that happens to be early in the morning! Waking up early after a long flight may not sound very exciting at first but, I have to say it is absolutely worth the effort!

      Here are three great reasons to do it early in the morning:

      1. Magic happens during the ‘’golden hour’’. Sometimes also referred to as the ‘’magic hour’’ is a short period of time after sunrise or just before sunset. When the sun is still low above the horizon, producing soft reddish light and long shadows. This is when all the magic happens!

      2. The air is fresh, Venice is just starting to wake up, the streets are empty, San Marco square is filled with beautifully warm natural light. This is the time when the colors are deep and rich, high contrasts are minimized. This is the perfect time to photograph in open spaces, such as the area around San Marco, Doge’s Palace and the shore with the floating gondolas.

      3. The whole Venice only to yourself. You may ask: what about afternoon then? Why wake up early in the morning when you can get just the same light at sunset? Not only I want to get the best light, but also to make your experience as enjoyable as possible! Remember that Venice is one of the most visited cities in the world. Since most of my romantic photo shootings take place in such breathtaking areas as San Marco square, the Bridge of Sighs, Rialto Bridge, Santa Maria della Salute, and Accademia Bridge, one cannot underestimate the number of tourists. According to the English proverb, early birds catch the worms so the one who comes early gets the best chances for an easy and relaxed photo shoot. No crowds in the background, no people right beside you.

      The atmosphere in the morning is very different. You will truly enjoy the city and feel like it belongs to you 😊 The morning light will reserve you the most beautiful photos and if you would like to enrich this experience, you should take advantage, as mentioned before also of the night in Venice.
      I’m happy to help lovers from all around the world to arrange the best engagement, honeymoon, pre or post wedding session ever!
