Lake Como Engagement Session with Sonam and Justin

Italy’s Lake Como is the epitome of elegance, making it the perfect backdrop for capturing love stories. We had the pleasure of photographing Sonam and Justin, a dynamic couple who are set to marry at the stunning Villa del Balbianello this August. Their pre-wedding shoot was an afternoon of glamour, breathtaking views, and authentic moments.

Starting Strong at Villa Monastero, Varenna

Our stylish afternoon kicked off at the elegant Villa Monastero in Varenna. With its meticulously kept gardens and striking lake views, this spot set the stage for some fantastic shots. The afternoon light cast a golden glow, enhancing the villa’s timeless beauty and giving our photos that extra wow factor.

Cruising Lake Como in Style

After our session at Villa Monastero, we hopped on a boat for a leisurely cruise across Lake Como. The boat ride was the perfect setting for capturing candid, relaxed moments as the couple soaked in the incredible scenery. The majestic lake and mountain vistas provided a dramatic backdrop that highlighted the couple’s adventurous spirit and the romance of the location.

Sneak Peek at Villa del Balbianello

As we approached their upcoming wedding venue, Villa del Balbianello, the excitement was undeniable. This iconic villa, known for its lush gardens and panoramic views, is a dream wedding destination. We snapped some stunning shots around the villa, giving Sonam and Justin a preview of where they’ll soon say “I do.” The anticipation and joy were palpable, adding a touch of magic to these images.

Wrapping Up with Aperol Spritz

After a day of capturing beautiful moments, we wrapped up with an Aperol Spritz at a lakeside café. We spent this time relaxing, talking, laughing, and bonding with Sonam and Justin. The stunning views of the lake and mountains made for a perfect backdrop as we got to know them better and shared stories about their engagement and future plans. This casual and intimate time together added an extra layer of connection, making the whole experience even more special.

Capturing the Essence of Their Love

Planning an engagement session offers numerous benefits. It allows for a relaxed, creative experience away from the constraints of a busy wedding day. It’s an opportunity to capture your unique style and chemistry in a setting of your choice. Additionally, it helps build rapport with your photographer and get comfortable in front of the camera, making your wedding day photoshoot more enjoyable and successful. This engagement photoshoot at Lake Como was not just about beautiful locations, but also about capturing Sonam and Justin’s unique story and style. We’re thrilled to have been part of their journey and can’t wait to photograph their Lake Como wedding at Villa del Balbianello in August.

For those dreaming of an Italy wedding, whether it’s an engagement or wedding photoshoot, Lake Como offers an unbeatable mix of natural beauty, historical charm, and romance.
