Venice – Bridge of Sighs – Gondola – Proposal – Engagement

Venice gondola surprise proposal under the Bridge of Sighs
Georgia and Sam are a wonderful couple from the U.K.
Sam contacted me saying that he would like to secretly propose to Georgia on a gondola under the Bridge of Sighs, in Venice.
The idea is absolutely romantic, but the photographer should be on board, in order to photograph properly something happening under the bridge. So I suggested to let her know his desire to hire a “holiday” photographer and have a romantic couple photo session on the occasion of their trip to Venice, but keeping secret his real intention of proposing. Only at the very moment she would realize that he didn’t booked a holiday photographer, but a proposal photographer instead!
And so it was…and it was completely successful!
After the emotional gondola ride we strolled through Venice, visiting some of the most celebrated spots (such as St. Mark’s Square), and some more hidden and intimate areas (such as one of my favourite places: the old, unconventional, book shop “Acqua Alta”).
I had a great time hanging out with these two love birds. They have amazing chemistry together, and were so easy to photograph as well. Thank you guys, I wish you an happy wedding and all the best for your future!
