With a multitude of pathways and waterfronts, Venice is the most ideal location for not only weddings, but loving wedding pictures. Say your marriage vows in a regional cathedral and then capture your pleasure permanently with images at the Ponte di Rialto or Ponte delle Guglie.

Venice’s regional solitude first kept it distant and secure, and now keeps it the same and magical.

Dreamlike, amazing Venice seduces an incredible number of guests every year! Venice is a tourist’s paradise. A loving marriage and honeymoon vacation here will be memorable. The resorts along the “strip” provide the best views of the spectacular lagoon.

Note that in the Veneto region, there are other essential areas such as Verona, the city of Romeo and Juliet.
We all know that your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life. There is an enormous emotional significance. It represents months and months of planning and preparing. Not to mention the major financial cost. Friends, family, loved ones will all be there to take part in your special day. You will most likely be nervous, excited, and maybe even forgetful. You often hear that brides have a vague memory of the wedding in the flurry of activities and well-wishes from guests. The marrying couple often counts on their wedding photographer to snap the day’s most important moments. It doesn’t matter if you are hiring a New York photographer or someone in Georgia, it is crucial to make the right choice. Here are some good tips to ensure you choose a wedding photographer who will make your special day extra special.
One of the most important elements in choosing a wedding photographer is ensuring that he or she has extensive experience. A good photographer will have a good portfolio that you can and should review. When looking through the portfolio, make sure all the standard compositions are present. By that, look for the bride prior to the wedding, ceremony photos, and family member photos, and any creative photos. Look for any unique lighting and settings, anything that makes them stand out as a photographer. Does the wedding photographer capture the brides’ and grooms’ personalities? You want your pictures to stand out. He or she should understand your needs. You don’t want to have the same pictures as everyone else. Take this into serious consideration especially if the wedding photographer came to you as a referral.
Do You Have the Right Chemistry?
The view you have for your wedding should be similar to that of your photographer. There will be plenty to do on your special day. You should be able to trust your wedding photographer to do his/her job. Discuss ahead of time the shots you have in mind. They should be open to your interpretations of the photos you want. You will need to tell them ahead of time that your Uncle Edward is one of the most important people in your life and to snap several pictures of him. Simply put, you will need to trust your wedding photographer. In addition, you will need to be able to believe in his or her artistic view and follow their suggestions.
What’s The Price?
You get what you pay for, right? It’s no different with a wedding photographer. You need to stay within your budget and still feel comfortable that the wedding photographer will get all the treasures photos you want from the wedding. Most photographers have a variety of packages and prices. If none of these fit your wedding budget, talk openly with the wedding photographer and tell him what you are open to paying. You might be surprised at the response.
Get Their Input
A good wedding photographer has been around the block a few times. They might give you insight on how to do your rehearsal photos, engagement photos, hair, even makeup. Remember that you are hiring an expert in weddings who will give you good advice. You are paying for their guidance to make you shine.
Your goal is find a wedding photographer that will make your day last a lifetime. An experienced photographer whom you connect with is worth the price. You will have a wedding professional on your side who will let you enjoy your special day forever.
Your wedding will last one day, but your pictures will last forever. Your friends will see them. Your children and even your grandchildren will see them. They are an integral part of your wedding. It is always thrilling for the newlyweds to get their pictures back from the photographer. It is a way for them to relive that special day. Here are some fun and creative wedding photo activities for your guests.
One idea is taking pictures of your guests as they arrive at the wedding. They might prefer to take a picture early into the wedding as everyone looks their best when they first arrive. Like high school prom, you can provide a backdrop. Either hire a photographer or set up several cameras for them to take their own pictures. Another option is setting up a Polaroid camera for immediate fun or disposable cameras. Talk about a great way to keep your guest busy while they are waiting for the reception to begin.
You can also create a fun scrapbook with the photos. Provide supplies for your guests to create their own pages at the wedding. For those less creative types, you can provide pre-made scrapbook pages where the guest can simply put their photo on the page. You should also place a box for people who do not want to take part in this activity. Another suggestion is for someone to turn these photos into a memory book as a gift to the bride and groom. If you are using a Polaroid, you can have the guest sign their photo and place it in a basket.
Having disposable cameras on each table is still an all-time favorite idea at weddings. Candid photos are fun and allow people to get creative. You can add these photos to the wedding album or create a separate album showing the guests’ perspective of the wedding.
Have you heard of the “silent photo guess”area? This works best in a small, family wedding where the guests know the newlyweds well. It works like this: before the wedding, a close friend collects pictures of the bride and groom in different moment in life. They should be “action pictures” not from Christmas or graduations, nothing too obvious what is taking place. People will come and look at the pictures, then guess what is taking place. They can write their answers on a ballot and put it in a numbered basket with the corresponding picture. Later in the evening, the bride and groom can read the real answers. It can be great entertainment and guaranteed amusing. You can even provide a prize.
If you are not sold on the “prom night” idea, you can set up a photo corner area of the reception area. This is where the wedding photographer can take candid shots of the guests. It is a carefree zone where the guests surprise the bride and groom. It could be pictures of couples, entire families, friends blowing kisses, or the groom being carried on the shoulders of the best man. The bride and groom later see the evidence that their friends and family were also having a great time at their wedding.
