After I published one of the mountain couple photoshoots on Lake Como, Matt and Sierra wrote to me that they wanted to have a couple photoshoot in the same place. Mountains are not what couples are searching for when they arrive at the northern lakes of Italy. So each similar request becomes a gift for me (I adore mountains!).

Piani d’Erna is famous among locals as an ideal place for trekking, mountain climbing, walking, and just a lazy family vacation on hot summer days. I was one of the first to start offering this location for mountain couple photoshoot on Lake Como.

The air: transparent, filled with the fragrance of alpine herbs, a complete absence of tourists, breathtaking landscapes – this is what awaited Sierra and Matt during their romantic photo walk.

A few minutes by funicular – and we are at an altitude of 1 300 meters above sea level, the only visitors of Piani d’Erna valley at such an early hour. The peaks of the Resegone mountains rise above us, below Lake Como is shimmering in the morning sun and the city of Lecco is slowly waking up.

After enjoying the mountain scene, we went down to Lecco and decided to diversify our photoshoot taking a couple of “must-have” photos on the background of the lake.

And what locations on Lake Como would you prefer?
