Bride & Groom cuddling under the historic portico of the Chiesa di San Giacomo di Rialto

The best way to experience the wonderful locations in Venice Italy is in the early morning hour before the city and the tourists awake. Venice is rightfully one of Europe's top 10 travel destinations and as such it is extremely crowded during the daytime and early evening hours. So much so that I highly advise couples to not have their photos captured during this time frame - it is simply unmanageable unless you wish to have hundreds of people in your background.

To have wonderful & atmospheric images like this you must begin your session very early in the am and especially in the summer time.

I love this square due to its proximity to the Rialto bridge and of course the stunning architecture of the square itself. The church has a large 15th-century clock above the entrance, a useful item in the Venetian business district but regarded as a joke for its inaccuracy. The Gothic portico where our bride and groom are resting is one of the last surviving examples in Venice. It has a Latin cross plan with a central dome. Inside, the Veneto-Byzantine capitals on the six columns of ancient Greek marble date from the 11th century.

According to tradition this church is the oldest chruch in Venice. Supposedly consecrated in the year 421. Though the first document citing the church dates to 1152. Regardless of its true age, it remains a picture perfect location for couples wishing to soak up the historic ambiance of a bygone era.
