Say cheese, everyone! If you’re roaming around Christmas markets in Istria or Kvarner, here’s where you can book a professional holiday photo shoot and capture precious moments with your family that’ll warm your hearts for years.
A Family Portrait Worthy of Royals
Did you know you could take a family portrait in a real castle? The Morosini - Grimani Castle is situated in the picturesque town of Svetvinčenat in central Istria. This 13th-century castle has an incredible history attracting many curious visitors. Today, it is a beautiful venue for various exhibitions, conferences, and weddings.
This holiday season, studio Luce Divina by photographer Mirko Mihalj has offered an opportunity for a Christmas photoshoot like no other! One of the rooms in the Morosini - Grimani castle has been turned into a charming holiday set with a vintage flair, built in collaboration with a florist Daniela Peršić. With its unique vintage and almost royal flair, this set is perfect for creating dreamlike photos for couples and families. Luce Divina is a Rovinj area-based photography studio devoted to capturing life’s most beautiful moments, with an extensive portfolio of newborn, maternity, and family photo shoots.
Bringing Out the Holiday Cheer With a Creative Twist
Filip Gržinčić is an award-winning photographer and videographer whose studio in Rijeka has been offering Christmas photo shoots for the third year in a row. Every year, his wife, Slađana, comes up with unique holiday set designs that bring smiles to everyone’s faces on and off camera! “We strive to create something different each year and go beyond the traditional Christmas setup”, says Filip, “and we’re delighted that so many families have recognized our work and trusted us with capturing their dearest memories”.
The photo shoot schedule gets entirely booked very quickly, with clients coming in not just from Rijeka but also from other parts of Croatia. So, if you’d like your family photos to have a bit of extra magic, make sure to book one of the last slots left this December.
Spread the Joy by Booking a Photo Shoot With a Cause
You might have heard of the House of Istrian Prosciutto in Tinjan, but you may have yet to learn that it becomes home to a true Christmas fairytale during this time of the year! You can book a photo shoot as part of the project called “Reci Tičić” (which is a local term that translates to “Say cheese!”). This unique project was created by a group of enthusiastic professionals at Artium Weddings, who wanted to create jolly memories for families and give back to the community. Artium Weddings is an experienced team of creatives dedicated to making every special occasion into a favorite memory.
Suppose you book a photo shoot at the House of Istrian Prosciutto anywhere from November 25th to December 18th. In that case, part of the proceeds will be donated to the Istrian humanitarian and volunteering association Our Dream Their Smile. As part of the photo shoot, you will also get a gift to mark the occasion!
No matter where you find yourself in Istria or Kvarner, there are plenty of ways to get into the holiday spirit, and now you can also take the experience with you and keep the precious memories from your trip forever!
