Prague pre weddings

A natural light pre wedding portrait session in Prague with Ting & Jeff!

Ting & Jeff who live in Singapore, decided on a last minute pre wedding photo shoot in Prague. They were in a bit of a hurry with their images but no worries, we are pretty much old hands at turning around couples images.

They are also a bit camera shy, but that was really not a problem as we simply explored several wonderful locations in Prague such as the Ledeburska Garden and one of my favorite secret gardens overlooking the city below.  As these session are more about documenting their experiences  as they take in this beautiful city the images tend to be more natural in focus. As you can see they were able to really relax and enjoy their session which made for truly beautiful images.

To capture the unforgettable experience of the Charles Bridge at sunrise we decided to start their session a few moments before the sun flared above the famous city of 100 spires. It is not every day that a couple gets to see something as wonderful as this especially when the bridge is not as crowded as it usually is.

What I enjoy about these natural light sessions is the fact that it is based on a simple premise: no posing, no fancy lighting gear, just natural portraits of a young couple in love. Not everybody wants to spend all day being posed – in fact some like these two just want to explore the beauty of Prague in a no stress, fun way.

To Ting & Jeff, I wish you both much happiness, success and luck as you enter a new stage in your lives as husband and wife! Thank you for selecting myself and my team for your pre wedding session here in Prague.

Starting the day in a glorious way near the Charles Bridge at sunrise

 

Annabelle & Nathan traveled over from Hong Kong wishing for a more relaxed, natural style and especially a sun lit portrait session in Prague. The magical city of 100 spires certainly did not disappoint.

They met during their university studies in Hong Kong in 2008 and though they were both in a relationship they quickly became good friends. Though they kept their true feelings from each other on how they felt towards each other their relationship finally bloomed later after experiencing the many trials and tribulations of their personal and academic lives. As Annabelle put it, ‘we finally decided to be together when we graduated in 2012.’

Like many couples from Hong Kong when you make the decision to commit to each other you must start planning ahead and this includes the wedding and the very important pre-wedding photo shoot. They decided on Prague as they both felt that ‘Prague is the most beautiful city in Europe! And Prague (and their pre-wedding portrait session did not let them down.

Prague is deservedly one of Europe’s most popular tourists destinations – as such it can be very tricky photographing couples who wish to have a more intimate feel to their images. Therefore we opted for a  very early morning start to capture the quiet, gas lit streets minus the hordes of tourists. One of the most beautiful pictures is also one of the first ones – the simple image of Annabelle & Nathan watching the sunrise near the Charles Bridge. Funny enough we have had many couples ask to have this same motif and style.

Though I am quite happy with this image  it was a shame that we did not have the usual swans photo bombing our picture. But having the location all to ourselves and seeing the light reflecting and twinkling off the Vltava made it that much more special. The beautiful  hand made lantern that was sold in the Souk market in Dubai as they watched the light start to break above the skyline also added wonderfully to this image. We then walked over to one of my favorite locations so that they can sit and take it all in. It was a truly beautiful, peaceful and relaxing start to our day.

As we arrived to the Charles Bridge there must have been about 6 other  photographers posing their couples. Truth be told, we did not wish to spend that much time here as so many people were already crowding onto the bridge. But what we did capture were these two simply enjoying one of the most beautiful sunrises across a truly iconic cityscape and the flaring sun did not disappoint.

Annabelle had mentioned her desire to be photographed in a lush green setting and as the Cherry Blossom Trees were in full bloom we went to a location that is truly picture perfect – one where they could sit down, enjoy the scenery and take it all in. She told me later that the photos captured during their time at the garden were the most personal and special ones as the vivid colors captured their mood.

In addition to their wedding attire, Annabelle & Nathan decided that a trip to Prague Castle and in casual clothes were in order –  so after an outfit change (and a new hair & makeup look) we headed up there. Capturing them as they explored this incredible castle are some of my faves.

Presented here are a few of their wonderful images that they chose.

 

 

 

 

A beautiful destination wedding at the Troja Chateau featuring the lovely Helen and her husband Cesar who traveled over from Lebanon to have their dream wedding in Prague. Beautiful, natural styled wedding photography captured not only at the Troja Chateau but at many of Prague’s iconic locations.

Not only were these two an absolute joy to capture on their visually stunning and happy wedding day but their close family & friends who joined them really made it all come together. It was truly unforgettable.We caught up with them at their hotel near Narodni Trida and captured the prep before we all raced up to the Troja Chateau (and race we did). Of course when you arrive to this incredible location you are simply in awe of its incredible architecture as well as the  intricate and beautifully painted interior. The smiles on their faces was all you need to know as they walked in the huge doors and headed to the front to exchange their vows.

The great thing about these two is how they wanted a more natural style to their images and as Troja offers such incredible grounds it was enough to capture them as they walked around and took it all in. Afterwards it was time to head over to Prague Castle where we took in some of the most beautiful views overlooking Prague before walking down to the Old Town Square. For many couples having a destination wedding capturing the atmosphere of this very popular city and exploring it on your wedding day make for a truly unforgettable experience.

And the beautiful bride left me this wonderful review:
