Jeni & Roberto Elopement

Venice, Italy


There is nothing about life that we enjoy more than traveling together and new adventures along the way; and there is nothing I would rather do than photograph the beauty of love in new places. Truly afflicted with a lifelong wanderlust, we structure our business towards destination wedding photography. Italy is one of our favorite countries to visit, especially when it is for a Venice, Italy Wedding!

There isn’t much that I can add to everything that has been said about Venice before, but as an Italy wedding photographer, Venice is probably the most picturesque city in the world. As a Venice wedding photographer specifically, everywhere you turn is a photo opportunity.

It was this trip as a Venice Elopement photographer where we met up with Jeni and Roberto. What a beautiful relationship they have, and getting to know them through their elopement in Venice shoot was magical.

Venice Italy Wedding

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 that he loved her! As we approached it about halfway through the shoot, Jeni turned to me and whispered, “How did you know?!” We did not know, until that moment. You will see it in their eyes… this kind of love brings a magic that affects everyone around them. Read more about the shoot after the photos!

Venice is a labyrinth of alleys, bridges, and hidden tunnels between buildings. There are no cars in the city – only boats and your own feet to get you where you need to go. Elizabeth and I arrived in Venice on a Friday and laid out our plan for prepping and scouting. Saturday began before sunrise, walking to the areas we thought we would want as our backdrops… and hunting for fresh flowers and a few other styling elements along the way.

A magical shoot. An afternoon to soak it all in, then up at sunrise again to catch a flight back to Houston. If you would like to capture something like Jeni and Roberto did with me in Venice, no matter where it is, London, Edinburgh, Rome or Ravello – anywhere where you dream of – why not get in touch today? I’m always very excited to hear about your plans!
