And she said YES! A wedding proposal in Venice

Filed in Engagement, Wedding — June 19, 2013

You enter Venice and immediately get covered with it’s charme, great italian food, architecture, opera singers and history.
Shannon&Chris were attending a wedding of friends in Italy, Lake Como, where I was also photographer. Chris contacted me before the event, and asked, if I would be interested to do a Shooting with them in Venice and also photograph his surprise proposal to his girlfriend. A live wedding proposal in one of the most romantic city in the world? What a wonderful surprise for her; and for me a unique shooting. Venice has thousands of motives with it’s old houses, walls, bridges and canals. You could go on and on and still see another perfect picture to take.

We met in the morning and spent the whole day together in venice for their “photoshooting” (so was Shannon told) Eating Ice cream and the Promenade, walking over the tiny bridges and passing stores. Venice is wonderful for photography! You dont want to stop exploring each and every little corner of it. Shannon got her proposal in a gondola – and she said Yes! Going home to their hotel they celebrated with a glas champagne to their future together.

Venice, you might go there only once – but it will charme you forever!


A Ring and a proposal – very well kept until the right moment was hereThe place to visit in Venice – the Palazzo San Marco with it’s famous inhabitantsA walk at the Promenade at the Canal Grande with a stop at Gelati Nico to share an Ice Cream. Don’t miss this out, they really are delicious!!On the Ponte di Rialto (the big Rialto Bridge) young lovers put a locker to receive eternal love. The origin of this nice tradition is not 100% sure, but probably finds it’s origin in europes Italy, FlorenceWhat a Moment! She sais yes! ICongratulations to Shannon & Chris – I wish you many romanic cruises together ♥

    I am planning to have a surprise proposal to my girlfriend in Venice during this mid December. I looked through some of your photos and i personally do like them a lot. I would like to have the proposal on the private boat and have the proposal take place in the boat. Hence, I would like to hear your opinion and also the cost of engaging you. Looking forward to your reply.

    This is really the one and only place to get a proposal! You captured the moments so perfectly! Very beautiful as always! Thank you very much for sharing the pictures.

    NB. habe meinen Antrag auch in Venedig erhalten – allerdings nicht im Gondeli, sondern on top des Kirchenturms auf San Giorgio mit Sicht über den Markusplatz. Wusste nicht mal, dass es nach Venedig geht…
