Wedding Photos in Riomaggiore

Żaneta & Bartek 🇵🇱

Żaneta studied Italian at the university, so choosing Italy for her honeymoon was not a surprise. Deciding where exactly she wanted her post-wedding session was a little more difficult. Italy has countless breathtaking, romantic places. Ultimately, the Ligurian coast won. I suggested several nearby locations for the photo session, including Lerici, Sestri Levante, Cinque Terre and Portovenere. Ultimately, the bride and groom chose one of Cinque Terre – Riomaggiore from my proposals. I was excited about this choice because the small seaside town offers many photographic opportunities. Picturesque, narrow streets hidden in the shade create an intimate atmosphere and allow for a moment of tenderness away from prying eyes. The energising colours of the facades create a contrasting background to the black and white newlyweds. And on top of all that, the proximity of the sea, fishing boats in a small port and a pink sunset at the end of the day. Can you imagine a more beautiful scenery?

Is August a good month for a photo shoot?

The wedding photos in Riomaggiore took place in August. The summer sun gives the colors incredible intensity. And the amount of light allows you to take photos without rushing – sunset is after 9 p.m. However, there are also some downsides. High temperatures make it difficult to stay in wedding clothes and makeup. That’s why I often encourage you to plan your day in such a way that the fatigue from the all-day heat is not visible in the photos. Moreover, August is holiday time in Italy, so the number of tourists and prices definitely increase. As you can see, I have my tricks to avoid crowds being visible in the photos. However, I suspect that more introverted people might feel awkward posing among so many people. Therefore, if you have a choice, I recommend sessions in late spring (May, June) or early autumn (September). During these periods, the heat is not yet noticeable and the number of tourists decreases. I must admit that autumn sunsets are my favorite.

I encourage you to check out other galleries presenting portraits of couples.
