35 reasons to book me as professional photographer

  1. Serena was absolutely amazing. I still can’t believe how beautiful all of our photos came out. She was able to capture the exact feeling and mood I was going for. She made my fiancé and myself feel very comfortable in front of the camera. She kept us cool with her positive attitude, reassuring us that although with the cloudy weather that we would still have beautiful pictures, which we did! We loved that Serena is very familiar with Dorsoduro so she knew the exact hidden alleys, bridges and canals to shoot in. What Serena is able to see through the lens is beautiful and we are happy to have met such a beautiful person. We want her to photograph our wedding for sure. Thank you Serena! – Denise & Kat
  2. Our experience with Serena could not have been better- she is a wonderful, kind, and talented woman and it was a privilege to work with her. My fiancé hired Serena to capture his surprise proposal at the Punta Della Dogana in Venice. Considerable covert planning went into this shoot, including a Skype session with my fiancé, and Serena was happy to accommodate all of our needs. She even hung around a little longer than we had booked her for because it took my fiancé a few extra minutes to work up the courage to pop the question. Having never been photographed professionally before, I was afraid it would be awkward, but thanks to Serena it was not uncomfortable in the least- we had a great time! Also, I was nervous about the pictures because I hadn’t exactly dressed/done my makeup/hair the way I would if I had known in advance I was being photographed (or proposed to!), but I really love the way they turned out. I’m SURE my hair was a mess of tangles from the wind but in the photos it looks totally glamorous. Finally, the best part of our photos is how natural and genuine they are. Serena captured our emotions perfectly, and I am beyond grateful that we will be able to look back on them and remember that perfect day for the rest of our lives. – Sara & Robert
  3. Serena was amazing! It was suppose to rain in the morning, so the night before she reached out to see if we could meet later. Very appreciated. During the shoot she was very helpful with pose ideas. Also, she was very quick, so we got a ton of different shots. Venice was the perfect city to capture these photos. We had a blast! Thanks so much! – Sarah
  4. The experience and photos could not have come out better! We have begun sharing the photos with our friends and family and the feedback has been tremendous.Serena was such a pleasure to work with and truly captured the happiness of the moment. We couldn’t have asked for someone better to help us with this special day! – AJ

  8. When my husband and I decided to get married, one of our wishes for the big day was to hire expert and no obsessive photographers. We don’t like posed photos and we didn’t want to sped all the day posing in front of the camera. On the other hand, we wanted to have lovely pictures and look our best. Serena Genovese Photography was the best choice we ever made! Serena and Francesco lived with us our perfect day, tiptoeing around and capturing precious moments with sensitive, irony and love.

  12. One word – Awesome! The entire experience was awesome.

  14. Serena and Francesco are amazing persons and expert photographers. I adore photography too and when my husband and I decided to get married, we knew that one of the most important thing to carefully plan was finding the perfect photographers for our perfect day: when I finally discover Serena and Francesco I suddenly fell in love with their professional and candid portraits. I felt their love for details, for the nature and spontaneous photo shooting was exactly what I was looking for. Our wedding day was stunning and unforgettable: Serena and Francesco kindly followed us during the whole day, from the beginning to the night dancing party, taking and impressive amount of pictures of us alone and with our friends and relatives. Every time we browse the photo album they made us we feel like we are living that perfect day another time, with the same emotions and intensity. They caught the true spirit of it, the wait, the feelings, lights and colors, smiles, joy and laughs, tenderness and the authentic emotions of our wedding day. Everything is so genuine and beautiful – we are so gorgeous in their photos!!! So, thanks so much: every time we will look at these photos we will live again all these moving memories, for ever. – Eleonora & Luca

  19. We were absolutely thrilled with our wedding photo’s. From the minute we first skyped Serena with our plans she kept in touch and listened to our ideas, helping us with our planning.

We really couldn’t have done it without them!On the day of the wedding we were so happy to share our special day with them as they helped ensure all our ideas came about. We walked through beautiful Edinburgh to Arthur’s seat on a perfect dry day for our outdoor Scottish wedding and they were on hand to capture the day just as we hoped. The photo’s were even better than we could have wished for! Indeed we have been told that they are the best wedding photos ever seen, high praise and we completely agree. From the minute we saw the photo’s we couldnt stop looking at them. They are perfect.Not only are Serena and Francesco really great photographers but they are professional, friendly and super helpful – Francesco even had to help us get a pram up a rocky hill, definitely more than the job description!

She arranged all the bookings of taxi boats and gondolas according to our brief and was fearless in getting the shots she wanted in several different locations with the beautiful setting sun in the magnificent Venice background. She used humour and reassurance to get the very best out of the photos and her subjects – us.

We now have a fabulous set of photographs capturing every moment of our wonderfully romantic engagement. Many thanks! – Kathy
  31. Serena did our photoshoot in Venice. I had requested sunset and explained what kind of photos I’d like. She emailed back and said the best time to get the kind of photos I want is 7:30am. I’m so glad I listened to her! When we got to Venice, I saw how crowded it was at sunset and there would have been no way for us to get the kind of photos we were looking for.
