Step 1 - book your Prague photo shoot as soon as possible
Booking your Prague photo shoot with us is simple.
Step 2 - prepare for your Prague photo shoot like a Pro - 'Truly successful photo shoots are those that have been prepared for'
The amount of fun captured in our images is really dependent on several things: how well you click with your photographer and how well you communicate your ideas and styles before the shoot. When you work with an experienced pro, your expectations should be quite high - after all, anyone can take a picture but to capture what you experienced in a beautiful, artistically created way takes vision, dedication and a real love for what we do. And no worries, if you feel like you need a bit of encouragement or some guidance - we can do that too.
For truly beautiful images with very little worries about the weather the period from late March (this is when the Cherry Blossom trees start to bloom) through the end of autumn in early October is best. I am personally a big fan of September to early October as it is the most visually stunning time of the year - the fall foliage is at its most spectacular and a visit to a garden is a must. The bonus: shorter days with its late sunrises and early sunsets make for easier & faster paced sessions. Please note we are also booking many elopement weddings where couples chose to have a pre sunrise session so those dates do book up fast as well.
Sunrise photo sessions are truly the best way to experience this city without the many tourists cluttering up the background of your images. For many of our couples from Asia we actually will start their pre-wedding sessions 1-2 hours before sunrise to capture night motifs, the magical Blue Hour, the incredible sunrise (either from the riverside of on the Charles Bridge) as well as stunning panoramic images of the city from up high.
This is the time where the sun starts to peak above the skyline in the morning dawn or daybreak. The fall months are especially breathtaking as the warmth of the sun hitting the Vltava sends up a gorgeous mist that creates ethereal streaks of lights that simply can not be replicated in photoshop.
The benefits of having a sunrise session (or pre sunrise)
The period when the day is ending and the night is beginning.
Evening (night time) photo sessions
For many couples visiting Prague the first question they ask is where to go? Obviously the historic Charles Bridge, Astronomical Clock, the Old Town Square, Prague Castle and many places in and around the riverside in Mala Strana are gorgeous. But Prague also has stunning gardens that should also be considered for your session.
Here is a short list of some of our favorites:
Ledeburska or the Royal Garden
Offering many levels overlooking Prague and Mala Strana below. This garden also has a wide array of architectural elements, gardens, fountains as well as a few hidden surprises.
Vrtba Garden / Vrtbovska Zahrada
One of the most charming Baroque gardens in Prague offering 3 levels of incredible views. This garden is very popular as a wedding venue as such it can be quite busy with tourists and weddings. However the views from this garden under Prague Castle are not only impressive, but are a must have for couples who are investing in their Prague pre wedding photo session. You can realistically spend 1 hour here and have a collection of portraits that you will be quite proud of.
Without a doubt the most popular (with free entry) garden in Prague. The Castle Gardens are quite special in the amount of wonderful locations it offers. As it sits under the castle it offers stunning views of the city down below and in addition to the castle grounds it is a venue not to be missed. You can easily spend several hours here..
Wallenstejn Garden & Palace
Another wonderful garden that offers beautiful landscaped grounds with a small lake, a stunning view looking up towards Prague Castle, and interesting architectural elements. Plus the many peacocks who call it home are always a hit with couples
Pruhonice Botanical Gardens
First thing to note this garden is not in Prague it is 30 minutes south of the city. However this impressive Botanical Garden features a stunning castle and is a truly remarkable place for those couples who are having a large package and are willing to travel outside of the city centre.
