This Engagement Session Will Have You Booking a flight to Venice ASAP

As if we needed another reason to packs our bag and move to Venice PRONTO, this engagement session is certainly it. Overflowing with romance, gondola rides, AND the most adorable couple ever, we’ve got it all captured by Thecablookfotolab waiting for you in The Vault!

From ThecablookfotolabThese 2 lovebirds literally stole my heart. I think that people in love is the most harmonious thing ever. The way they look at each other, the way they keep the hands, the way they touch, everything around seem to be electrified by their emotion. For me this shooting was like a movie: so natural and easy. I love so much the idea of a destination engagement! What can be more romantic? Only destination engagement in Venice that ends in the gondola sailing to the sunset.

From the Bride-to-be…Alex was scheduled to go on a 6 month overseas assignment for work in March 2015. The week before he left, we went on a “farewell” road trip up the coast of California. He proposed in Big Sur at sunset on the beach, just the two of us. It was very exciting, but his departure was looming over us. The first six months of our engagement were definitely difficult, as he was in a remote place and had limited access to the internet (even less access to a phone!) So when he came home in September, we wanted to take a special trip to celebrate our engagement and being reunited. We decided to go to Italy because it is so romantic! I wanted to take engagement pictures in Venice so that we would always have a reminder of those happy moments. I found Darya on Style Me Pretty’s vendor guide and fell in love with the style of her photography immediately. It is so natural and filled with emotion. Alex and I were both apprehensive about taking photographs because don’t love having our pictures taken and thought we would feel awkward. However Darya made us feel SO comfortable and natural. She ended up spending the entire day with us, instead of just the few hours we booked her for, and we had such fun getting lost in Venice with her. The day that we thought be a chore ended up being the highlight of our whole trip. We can’t wait to see Darya again, hopefully soon!

Romantic + Luxe Elopement Inspiration in Venice, Italy

Pack those virtual suitcases dear readers because today we’re jet-setting off to one of the most romantic places in the world, ITALY! Venice to be exact, and this pretty lil’ inspo from Sapphire Events and Archetype Studio is worth the trip because it’s out of this world lovely. A luxe layering of Laura Hooper Calligraphy and Melissa’s Fine Pastries, you’re going to want to see it all in The Vault!

From Koby & Terilyn Brown, Archetype StudioWhat a beautiful relationship Jeni & Roberto have, and getting to know them through this shoot was magical.  We could not have predicted that out of 137 churches currently standing in Venice, we would scout and pre-pick the very one they were standing in front of when he first told her he loved her!  As we approached it about halfway through the shoot, Jeni turned to me and whispered,  “How did you know?!”   You will see it in their eyes… this kind of love brings a magic that affects everyone around them.

Romantic + Elegant Venice Engagement Session

From Kibogo Photography… Venice, known as one of the most scenic locations in the world, was the perfect location for Tine and Florian’s engagement shoot. They previously enjoyed their time traveling in Venice in 1999 and 2007 and wanted to return together to capture some of the memorable moments that they had during those prior trips.

Venice leaves a long lasting impression on anyone who visits it, and it has several beautiful historic areas, such as the famous San Marco Square, where we captured most of the moments.

The Square is known for its unique architecture and its historic buildings such as the Clocktower, Procuratie Vecchie, Procuratie Nuove, the Loggetta, and other incredible structures in the Piazza, which is just the perfect backdrop for some beautiful couple portraits. It was an honour for me to capture their love for each other in one of my favorite European romantic getaways.

Florian loves and admires Tine’s creativity and courage; qualities that have helped her bring her dreams into reality. Tine loves Florian for his big heart, his serenity and single mindedness.
