I recently had the honor of traveling to Venice, Italy to photograph Talia & Kris’ destination wedding. When I first met with this couple they were only considering hiring me for their Denver wedding, but after lots of meeting, talking, and negotiating they realized the importance of having the same photographer cover both events, as well as having an English speaking photographer that they could easily communicate with and trust to not only document their day, but provide them with quality images & albums after the wedding day. I fell in love with Italy and the Italian culture after my first trip backpacking through the country many years ago. So when I booked this job it truly was a dream come true for me to not only have the opportunity to go back, but to photograph a wedding there as well. It was a spectacular wedding day, and I was so glad my husband was also able come along to assist. I promised to wait till their Colorado wedding last night to post any pictures online, so that she could keep her dress a surprise to all of her Denver wedding guests. However, with the extra time I was able to put together this spectacular mini-music video/slideshow below. We displayed it for the very first time at their wedding reception last night at Maggiano’s Little Italy restaurant, which was really neat to see the family’s reaction…full of lots of hugs, awes, and even tears. For a glimpse into their amazing Italian destination wedding watch the video below and please leave a comment and let me know what you think!
