A winter pre-sunrise photo session in Prague with Joyce & Timmy.

It was not exactly great weather, in fact, it was freezing when Joyce & Timmy flew over from Hong Kong to have the first of 5  pre-wedding photo sessions captured in Europe. The first location on their wonderful adventure: Prague. When we met up with them they were very excited about their session and we were especially looking forward to creating something very special for them. We decided on a very early morning start to create some artistic images.

We were all hoping for snow but it was not to be. On a winter morning we met up with them at the very cold and very quiet Prague Castle where no one else but a few castle guards were around. As Joyce is a very sexy young lady we wanted to create some very stylish & elegant photos of her and Timmy before heading to the riverside. With a video crew and two lighting people we were ready for everything – but the cold weather. Truth be told there is nothing more wonderful than having a winter themed session in Prague when we have lots of snow. But when there is not snow, well, it is what it is.

As cold as it was Timmy being the good guy that he is was doing his best to keep Joyce warm and while we were on the Charles Bridge he was more than happy to pick her up and spin her around making for some incredible Golden Light portraits. After a few hour our session ended at the roof top terrace of the U Prince Hotel overlooking the Old Town Square. By that time the city was really waking up and as we timed this session accordingly it was time for us to say our adieu’s.

One of my favorite images of them: the two of them taking in the Charles Bridge before sunrise when the water reflected the lights. It was truly an unforgettable image and it was also beautifully captured by our wonderful video crew led by Cary Hubbs.

We heard back from Joyce a few days later, her weather in Hallstadt for their second winter themed session?  Only  0-5 degrees. Brr…

Presented here is a small sample of the many images captured during their session.

And the lovely bride to be left us a wonderful review on Google:  

I definitely love the pre wedding pictures taken by Kurt. It’s full of art. We have chosen the two hours before and after the golden hours. The sunlight is surely taken at right position. It’s the best photos we have taken along the five pre wedding places We have been. Despite the cold weather, Kurt is so kind to serve us hot tea and bread. The makeup by Linda is also professional, she makes me like a pop star.

Thank you Joyce again for selecting my team – it was a real pleasure creating this beautiful session for you.

    Hello,

    My name is Vy Lieu (Vietnamese/Chinese). Together with my boyfriend Davor (Croatian) I will be visiting Prague from May 23rd – May 26th for our 5 year anniversary. I am looking for a photographer based in Prague. I saw your portfolio and I really like your style.

    We want some couple pictures in the romantic and beautiful city of Prague! We prefer pictures during sunset/golden hour when the city isn’t too busy yet.

    Will you be available on the 25th of may? What are your prices and will you have some suggestions to make it extra special?

    Hoping to hear from you!

    KInds regards,
