Mini-break to Lake Como, Italy

I was lucky enough last year to be invited to photograph a wedding at Lake Como in Italy. It’s a really beautiful place, and it’s not surprising that it’s a hot spot for destination weddings. The lake is surrounded with mountains and the small towns dotted around the lake are quaint, pretty and charming.

 

I was there for two nights, so in between shooting the wedding and travelling to and fro from the airport I managed to get a couple of nice shots of the surrounding area. As I was abroad, I didn’t have access to my usual kit, so this work is a little more improvised than my usual shoots. No tripod or filters here, I had to rest the camera on a ledge for the long exposures!! Some photos were shot as part of the wedding shoot, and others were taken whilst I explored the local area.

You can flick through the slideshow above to see pictures of the wedding venue, Villa Balbianello, and the surrounding area or scroll down for my favourites.0047_Lake_Como_Landscape_Photographs
