Today we’re treating you guys to an incredibly enchanting engagement shoot from one of the most romantic cities on the planet.

There’s something so otherworldly about Venice.

Despite the thousands of tourists, the millions of pigeons, and the fact that it’s been depicted in paintings, movies, (and one especially iconic celeb wedding,) it still retains this air of charm, mystery and romance.

Which made it the perfect pit-stop on Cindy & Hemming’s pre-wedding European get-away, for a photo session with the amazing Stefano Santucci Studio.

From hanging out in the Piazza San Marco, to taking in some of the less tourist-trodden streets and alleyways, this shoot is so sweet! And if this one doesn’t inspire you to add Venice to your bucket list, we don’t know what will.

Scroll down for some serious wanderlust, but first up, read a little bit more about this cool couple, from photographer, Stefano Santucci

From The Photographer

This was Cindy and Heming’s first time in Europe, in particular in Venice, Italy, and you could tell by the way they remained fascinated looking around.

Cindy and Heming make a lovely and very romantic couple from Guangzhou, a big metropolis in South China, where they live and will get married in May.

Before their wedding, they decided to have a little adventure around Europe, they booked the tickets to visit Rome, Florence, Venice, Paris and Barcelona.

We met them in Venice for a lovely engagement photo session, with a perfect weather for an amazing walk in its labyrinthine streets, lined along the canals, where gondolas, the typical Venetian boats, flow.

It was such a great day, accompanying them in this discovery of Venice, they told us about how they met and fell in love and about their plans for the future, but of course also about their culture and traditions.

Have these photos helped you escape (for a few minutes at least!) on this Monday morning? This has me seriously considering Italy for our honeymoon next year! (And isn’t a pre-wedding honeymoon just the best idea ever!)

Thanks so much to Stefano Santucci Studio, and of course the gorgeous Cindy & Hemming for sharing their Venice engagement shoot with us.
