As the first light of dawn began to illuminate the sky over Venice, I rubbed the sleep from my eyes and prepared for what was sure to be an unforgettable day. Despite having only a few hours of sleep due to flight delays and a late arrival in the city, I was excited and energetic, eager to capture the love and beauty of this couple who had traveled all the way from the US to elope in Italy.
The bride, who had never been to Europe before, and the groom, who was born in Germany, had a unique and adventurous spirit that was evident in their decision to elope. Rather than spend a large sum of money on a traditional wedding, they chose to take their budget and have a once-in-a-lifetime travel experience, which included a sunrise photo session with me in Venice.
Initially, they planned to get married in the US and then have me capture their after-wedding photos in Venice and Tuscany (click here for the second part of the day). Still, in a spontaneous twist, they decided to get married at Lake Garda just two days before our session in Venice, making the emotions and memories even more special.
As we stepped onto the private boat the groom had arranged for us, I felt a sense of excitement and anticipation. The sun was beginning to rise, casting a warm golden light over the city and illuminating its stunning architecture. We set off into the city, taking in the views of the Grand Canal and the colorful buildings as we went. The couple was beaming with joy, their love for each other and for adventure shining bright.
It was a truly magical morning, one that I will never forget. And as I captured each moment, I felt so grateful to be a part of this couple's journey and help them create memories they will cherish for a lifetime.
