Swept away…in Positano Italy

Destination-Wedding-Wanderlust?  If you’re thinking of planning a destination wedding, the Amalfi Coast of Italy is surely a paradise for the eyes, heart and soul.  A perfect location to be swept away with your love and celebrate the beginning of your life together.

Making the most of your photos in Positano:

~Schedule your portraits for the hour before sunset at the beach and on the dock.  The light is magical during this time, and not only can you watch the sunset from here but you can also enjoy a gelato with your love.

~If you don’t have time during your wedding day for extended portraits, be sure to schedule a Day-After Session with your photographer.  You’ll have more time to explore and take amazing photos from different vantage points around the city, and you won’t be worried about getting your dress dirty.  Postiano can be difficult to traverse with the steep cliffs and miles of stairs at every turn.  Hire a private car and have them drive you around.

~Speaking of climbing up hills, go up into the less-crowded areas of town on the higher hills.  The main town is centered around the beach and more crowded.  You can escape the crowds if you ascend the hills and explore…the views are the best here too!

~Want to create your own, private vantage point?  Rent a boat and sail out into the sea for a spectacular view of the entire town.  You can’t get a better backdrop for your photos than this.  Plus, you can end your session sipping prosecco and nibbling on fruit from the sea!MelissaSchollaertPhotography-PositanoWeddingPhotographer-Italy-03~Last, don’t forget to hire me to photograph your wedding!  Contact me to learn about my Destination Wedding Specials!
