Let me introduce you, my fellow readers, a lovely photo set from engagement in Naples – the biggest southern city in Italy – engagement photo shooting for Maksim and Marina, two beautiful lovers in Italy.
There is a saying “vedi Napoli e poi muori”, that means: “to see Naples and to die”. Of course no one is going to die in a city of such beauty, unless one has a weak heart and gets too exited while touring around this ancient city on the sea shore. The only reason for me, as a big fan of Italian food to die was hunger, because it is close to impossible to find any restaurant open until 7 p.m.
Although Naples does not belong to tourist friendly cities, especially for those who like beach-sun-sea rest. But people who is keen in wondering along ancient cities, and taking pictures away from the touristic routs find this place attractive. Though it is a departure gate to famous Capri island, so popular among couples going to get married there or to have an engagement tour.
Welcome to a bit aggressive and friendly city at the same time. Streets are covered with dirt, but they are so beautiful and atmospheric. It is like the opposite site of Capri Island situated not far from it. The latter is a luxury place for lovers from all over the world coming to Italy for engagements and weddings.
Nature gave this part of the world amazing beauty, therefore thousands of brides travel there to enjoy the place.
Why is it so romantic and lovely? Capri is an Island with two picturesque harbors. The three “S”: sun, sand and swimming are tightly knotted in one place. Add to this big variety of seafood and Italian cuisine, friendly people around and the opportunity to have all this beauty in your love story, honeymoon or engagement photos from Capri and Italy.
Morning photo shooting
Doctors always recommend to have contrastive showers. So do I. If you go to Napoli visit also Capri to feel the difference. One can touch real atmosphere of this lovely country and people in Rome, Venice, Florence and other cities, but it’s better to have either a person who knows the places to go or a photographer in Italy who works for your good memories.
Maksim and Marina decided to follow this advice. While they were planning pre wedding tirp they found me. The idea of travelling around one of my favorite countries did sound great. Therefore together with Maksim we developed a plan and went for a engagement tour around Italy.
Galleria Umberto I — photos
Every city has something particular. For me and sweet couple such a place became Shopping Center named after the King Umberto – Galleria Umberto I. The building was erased in the 19th century in the slums. This step of the government helped the locals to find jobs. Today this is a very popular place with tourists.
At the present times this monumental building is stuffed with the world leading fashion companies boutiques. Therefore we went there as early in the morning as possible, because during the day there are to many people shopping in Napoli and we wanted to have lovely and sincere photos of lovers in Italy. But before the photo shoot at Galleria Umberto we discovered morning and sleepy city.
The city has about 1 million of inhabitants and some thousands of tourists coming every day. But we managed to escape from all the people and to wonder along tiny romantic streets. For me as a wedding photographer is very essential to let people feel free and sincere in order to take beautiful engagement photos. Morning Napoli helped to break the ice, therefore Maksim and Marina look so happy in the photos we took.
Maxim and Marina studied well at school, therefore they knew about the most popular volcano that ruined the ancient city of Pompey within several minutes. The Vesuvius volcano is situated not far here. It’s visible from the seashore and we couldn’t have helped of taking beautiful photos in front of the Vesuvius.
I know many people who like Italy and all of them have different attitude towards various sides of this country. Someone likes cuisine, the others architecture and the climate. I can also add the motorbikes. Because of mild climate one can ride the whole year round.
Neapoli is famous for it’s architecture, views and sights. But one shouldn’t forget about the sea. It amazing! In every seashore city or town there is unique atmosphere. Try to remember you last visit to Barcelona or any other place with direct way to the big water. I call these places charismatic and strong, although they are very romantic and cute.
As the result of several days spent in Italy together with wedding photographer Artur Jakutsevich Marina and Maksim received a slideshow with best photos form their engagement in Italy.
Thank you very much Max and Marina for amazing mood you shared with me. Your engagement in Naples will always stay in my heart as one of the most warmest and sweet photo shootings in this part of Italy. Sincerely yours, Artur.
