Usually I am available 2 days for each customer. In these 2 days I would not have other customer but you. That means that in the first day we have the photo session. The second day would be the backup in case of rain.

Please provide me with all the important info otherwise my availability is not guaranteed. If your arrival or departure change then my availability is not guaranteed. Info about arrival/departure are important. For example I need to understand if we would have enough light in the end of the photo shoot, therefore if it is possible or not to have it.


My photo shoot in Venice is much more than great pictures of you. You will discover and enjoy Venice much more than standard tourists. You will have a great time (customers say this on the Tripadvisor reviews). We can have a break (during or after the photo walk) for good coffee (Espresso), or refreshing glass of wine (Prosecco) or famous venetian drink (Spritz), or delicious finger-food (Cicchetti) or tasteful ice-cream (Gelato). We’ll stay away from the main streets as much as possible, so crowded and good for nothing. You will enjoy Venice as local.


I provide only the 3 hour photo session because after years of experience I understood that is the best solution. At the end of the photo shoot you will be very happy to haven’t done only 2 hours. Remind that I have such a good rating on Tripadvisor because I don’t provide only pictures but instead an amazing experience (what customers usually say). That is possible only with 3 hours. The amount of pictures actually doesn’t matter on the price (I write this for people who would ask for a discount because they need only few pictures).


Before to book the photo shoot, please read all the details below.


Payment only by cash (euro) in the end of the photo walk. No booking fee. No deposit.


I prefer we meet and begin the photo shoot at your hotel. It should be in Venice (in the main island) otherwise we’ll meet in St. Mark square or somewhere else. You should stay at least 1-2 nights in Venice otherwise it could be a problem. Hardly I will accept request from who will stay in hotel in other cities (Milan, Florence, Rome, Paris) and will come in Venice only for some hours.


The best time to begin the photo shoot changes every month. I don’t provide photo shoots after sunset.


The itinerary is arranged by me. The itinerary will be in the main island of Venice. The itinerary will not be in other islands as: Murano, Burano, Giudecca etc. Usually I don’t tell customers the itinerary. For sure we’ll take pictures in St. Mark’s square. Your requests are welcome and evaluated.

~ RAIN ~

For many reaosns I don’t take pictures with rain. In case of rain we’ll use our backup day. In case of 2 days of rain the photo session will be cancelled. During the low season maybe I am available more than 2 days but this is not guaranteed.


I will do the selection. I will edit all the pictures. Editing is about light, colours and cropping. I don’t retouch skin, body and clothing.


I provide photos (high resolution JPG files). I will upload all the photos on Google Drive (by Google). The day after the photo shoot I’ll write you the Google Drive link where you’ll can see and dowload already some the pictures. All the pictures will be uploaded in 1-3 days (during low season) and in 4-6 days (during high season).


I need to know if you want to have (or not) a gondola ride during the photo shoot. Obviously the price of gondola ride is not included in the price of my photo shoot. Gondola is not my business, I mean that you have to pay (by cash) the gondolier in the end of the ride. In Venice the official price of gondola ride is 80€ and it’s 30 minutes (for 1 person or 1 couple the price doesn’t change). I will choose a good gondolier. I will not accept a gondola ride arranged by someone else.


I don’t deliver prints, I don’t provide videos and I don’t provide service about makeup artist, flowers, clothing, musicians.


I need to know if you are going to change clothing during the photo shoot. My advice is for not change clothing during the photo shoot. Remind that change clothing would have a strong effect on the itinerary because we should come back to your hotel. Moreover we would waste time so we could take less photos and you could get less photos. Just be aware about that.


I need to know if you are going to wear a wedding dress during the photo session. For many reasons I don’t provide photo shoots about wedding dress in wintertime.


For some pictures sunglasses could be useful/important.


The photo shoot is during a walk in Venice so your shoes should be nice but also comfortable for walking. I would not recommend to bring a bag for the shoes and exchange them before any location because this does not allow us many natural photos. Keep in mind that Venice is all a potential photo set so there is not a distinction between the moving phase and the shooting phase. High-heeled shoes can actually be useful if your partner is much taller than you. Let me know your intentions about it.


For many reasons it is much better you don’t have bags or backpacks during the photo shoot.


Probably you wish to book my photo shoot in Venice because you saw the photos and read the customer reviews. After the photo shoot (after 2-4 weeks) I’ll write you the link where you can leave a review. I’ll copy the review on my website and I’ll add 2-4 photos of you. If you book the photo shoot, I presume you’re comfortable about this.
