Prewedding Shooting in Lake Como and Milan

A Prewedding Shooting in Lake Como and Milan
Italy in the wintertime is insanely beautiful. Art cities have a lot fewer people around and that works for the natural areas as well.
We had this gorgeous prewedding shooting in Lake Como and Milan one year ago, in January 2020. Wendy and Michael come from Hong Kong and they wanted to get both the vibe of the city – Milan – and the natural beauty of Lake Como. So – of course! – we managed to do both in one day, having a sunrise session in Milan and an early afternoon one in Como.
You’ll fall in love with the colors of the water in Lake Como in January – I guarantee that!
We started shooting around 8 a.m. in Piazza del Duomo. Milan is stunning as the city is still waking up: the square was empty, and the rose light of the sun was setting up the day so beautifully (matching Wendy’s gown to perfection!). Then, we had a walk around the neighborhood of Brera, always so vibrant and colorful!
We headed back to our hotel afterward for a change in the looks and left the city to drive North towards the beautiful Lake Como.
We parked our cars in Cernobbio and started our shooting there. We rented a water taxi to explore Lake Como by its waters and headed to a small town -I had never shot anything there before! – called Nesso. Nesso is a super tiny town in the west of the eastern branch of the Lake – midway between Como and Bellagio – and it’s absolutely breathtaking.
It looks like a ghost town in the winter, and it has this amazing and unexpected cascade a few meters away from a beautiful medieval bridge. Such a gorgeous setting for a pre-wedding shooting!
While we were sailing back to Cernobbio, we found ourselves surrounded by one of the most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen. The lake, the mountains, and the sky turned dark pink and blue – a mix of colors you can only get in the winter months. Saying I fell in love is an underestimation!
