What you'll do

We will walk into the magic of a small village in the Lake Como, a real hidden pearl named Varenna. We will live together the beauty of its historic center of small narrow roads, we will stop on the lakefront to admire the view. We will then visit the ruins of a beautiful medieval castle that overlooks the Lake, a breathtaking place that will make you feel into history.
In the meanwhile, I will take a few portraits of you in the different spots we visit. I will edit and deliver the photos in the following 5 days to have an indelible memory of the wonderful Lake Como.

VERY IMPORTANT: to reduce the spread of the infection COVID19 on my experience I’ll be wearing a face covering and I’ll be offering a hand washing soap. I will take care to avoid crowds.
We will be able to get to the Castle only if you have your own car. I have my own car and I will ask you to follow me to the Castle.

I would highly recommend Photoshoot with Veronica. She showed us great hidden location, was really nice and told us lots of stories. She knew all the tricks to connect with our 6 years old daughter. It was much more than just a photoshoot! Thanks a lot!

From the first moment we communicated with Veronica, she was friendly and asking questions to try and make this the perfect experience for us! We could not go to her usual location, but she worked with us to make it a great experience. She is friendly and worked with everyone in our fairly large group to make sure people got the photos they wanted! This was my Christmas present, a family photo but also various groupings of people! We walked to several locations in Como and I am very happy with what was delivered! It was the holidays and she delivered a few days early from her promised 5 days! Thank you Veronica!!!!

My wife and I visited Bellagio during our honeymoon and decided to do this photo shoot as a special way to remember our trip. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Veronica. The trip to Varenna from Bellagio is a quick 15 minute ferry ride with frequent departure times. We felt more like we were on a walking tour of the beautiful town of Varenna with Veronica rather than a photo shoot because she made us feel comfortable and lots of great information on the town’s history and things to do while we were there. But the best part is that she captured some great pictures that we will cherish. I would recommend this experience to anyone looking to explore a scenic place on Lake Como and pictures to help capture the memories of your trip!

Great experience; super easy to communicate. Veronica was warm and made us feel comfortable and found some cool spots in Verona within walking distance. We then took a short drive to the the castle, which was really great and had amazing views of the Lake -- we would have never found it on our own without Veronica!

Veronica gave us an unforgettable experience during the photoshoot! She took us to the best spots and made us very comfortable infront of the camera. She was a great person to meet and have a conversation with during our time together...

My husband and I had an incredible experience with Veronica! We had photos taken around Lake Como for our 10 year anniversary, and also as a bit of a maternity momento. We loved working Veronica! She was very warm and really had a great knowledge of the area. We especially loved getting to go up to the Castle in Veszio and take photos with the breathtaking view! Best experience so far in Italy! Highly recommend to others who want a special keepsake of their holiday!
