Mo + Note | Stylish honeymoon photoshoot at sunset
Honeymoon photoshoot in a magical Venice
Honeymoon in Venice is something you will always remember. A couples photoshoot to celebrate the occasion is a great idea! Especially if you have been waiting a long time for this trip, and you want to bring some of those memories home with you.
Mo and Note are a beautiful couple from Thailand who got married almost a year ago. At that time they couldn’t go on a proper honeymoon: Note is a soldier for the King of Thailand, and he didn’t have a lot of time to travel. When they finally decided to do it, they chose southern Europe and Italy was the destination they were dreaming about. They saw a lot of Switzerland and northern Italy in just a couple of weeks: the Dolomites, Verona, and finally Venice. Venice was the perfect location for a honeymoon photography session.
A spring sunset in Venice has so many nuances
Since they were traveling by car, they ended up being late than we anticipated. Luckily the sunset at the end of May, in Venice, is very long. I love it when I am to be able to photograph at this time of the day. At sunset all the colors are changing so fast and every minute is different from the one before.
Mo and Note booked a room at the beautiful Hotel Nani Mocenigo Palace, a place I know very well because it used to be the main building of my University when I was studying in Venice! It is now completely restored and so different from the palace I once knew. The hotel is close to Fondamenta Zattere ai Gesuati, and here we started our photoshoot.
A warm and orange sunset lit every picture. Both of them were tired from a day of travel, but they managed to immerse themselves in the beauty of a brand new city, Venice. We walked between the area of Accademia and San Marco, crossing the Accademia bridge with its famous view over Salute Church. Saint Mark’s square was very busy but that didn’t take away the magic.
We ended our tour with a fun taxi ride back to the hotel, when the sun was almost out of the sky. I gave them a lot of recommendations for restaurants and places to visit during their short time in Venice.
