Vladimir and Valeria decided to combine the September holidays at the seaside in Salou (Spain) with a romantic photo shooting in Tarragona — one of the most attractive towns in Catalonia. One day before the session, I came from Barcelona to meet with the couple and plan the shooting. As usual, I suggested having an early morning photo shooting to avoid crowds and get the best light possible. The same morning sessions I carry out in Rome, Venice, Paris, Prague, and Amsterdam.
Early in the morning, Tarragona is free of people, the sea is calm, and only sometimes can one meet locals strolling down the street to the nearest cafe for a morning coffee.
Finding an English-speaking photographer in Salou is not an easy task, but my friends managed to do it, so we began. The first photos were taken at the seaside when the beach was calm and there was no one. During the day, Salou is a noisy and boiling town full of tourists. So if you are looking for a romantic atmosphere, wake up early.
- In September, the best time to start a professional love story photo shooting in Tarragona is 6.30 a.m. Yes, it is early, but the results of such a sacrifice are the unique pictures of your couple. Have a look below!
The ambiance of old streets
In some 30 minutes, we were already in the ancient streets of Tarragona, looking for spots and inspiration for photos. I should say the atmosphere of this town is as romantic as in Rome. And this is absolutely fact.
Cathedral in Tarragona
One of the attractions in Tarragona is its Cathedral. Its portal and unique doors impress every visitor. My couple was also inspired, and we took some nice pictures there.
Taking photos in front of the building from the 12th century will be a bright memory for the rest of my life.
Roman Amphitheatre in Tarragona is a unique construction that looks like Coliseum in Rome. But the former is much older: the first gladiator fights took place there in the 2 century B.C.
Ancient Aqueduct or Devil’s Bridge
Some 10 kilometers away from Tarragona, there is another fascinating and old construction built by Romans — Ancient Aqueduct or, as locals call it: Devil’s Bridge. This place was the finish line of our photo shooting in Salou and Tarragona.
Valeria and Vladimir, I want to thank you for a very positive and happy morning and your trust. I look forward to getting an invitation to your wedding. Sincerely yours, Artur.
