uniquely created pre-weddings for unique couples

Romantic portrait elegant couple near Charles Bridge
Zoe & Billy - Prague Pre-Sunrise!
This American couple wanted only the best! We started pre-dawn so that they could have those gorgeous nighttime portraits before they sat down to enjoy the sunrise. Later we headed to the Old Town Square before finishing at the Vrtba Garden. With many styles and looks, this is a personal fave.
Stylish, Sophisticated couple atop Charles Bridge
Catherine & Cedric.Son Prague Night & Day!
This elegant and very classy couple had a lavish wedding celebration back home in Korea. Yet, the one thing they did not have from their wedding that they desired? Portraits that they could be proud of. During their visit to Prague, we rectified that by creating this very unique set of portraits.

Michelle & Jack - Prague Sunrise!
For our sexy couple from Taiwan, they were not exactly sure what style of pre-wedding photos they wanted. They appreciate the posed look but felt that a more natural style image suited them. So with that in mind, we created a very unique set of images that beautifully suited them beautifully.
Hebe & Pierre - Charles Bridge pre-weddings in Sepia
Hebe & Pierre - Prague Sunrise & Sunset!
Like nearly all of our couples from Hong Kong Hebe & Pierre wanted it all: sunrise, sunset, multiple outfit changes, the Charles Bridge, Prague Castle, Riverside, garden, artistic natural styled portraits, and a few traditional (posed) portraits during their session. They were more than impressed!
Fine Art Portrait of bride & groom atop Charles Bridge
Ting & Jeff - Prague Sunrise!
This Singaporean couple is quite shy and were not keen on having a pre-wedding. Instead of the typical pre-wed with lots of posing, we instead would lead them around and capture them naturally with minimal posing and art directing. They were game. This session is the result of that wonderful morning.
Regina & Peissu - grid image
Regina & Peissu - Prague Sunrise!
Like many couples, Regina & Peissu (USA) pre-wedding was an obligatory rite of passage. They knew the incredible architecture of Prague would provide a gorgeous background for their photos. What they really wanted was a session that fit their styles, taste, and personalities. We were more than happy to create this session for these two.


Tiffany & Chiu - grid image
Tiffany & Kiu - Natural Light Sunrise!
When Tiffany called me, she was not a happy lady. She had just had a pre-wedding with one of my competitors. As she stated, they had nothing but 'boring portraits' and felt cheated. As Tiffany stated, ‘we deserve better than this‘ and challenged me to do better - and we did!
Eri & Kentaro - grid image
Eri & Kentaro - Lake Eibsee, Germany!
This stylish Japanese couple chose Lake Eibsee in Germany for their European pre-wedding. They had seen a picture of mine of a couple in a red boat and wanted to have the same. Unfortunately, the timeline of their session was too late in the year. Nevertheless, they had a beautiful session.
Kathy & Joshua - grid image
Kathy & Joshua - Pre-sunrise!
Kathy & Joshua are two warm and personable people from Hong Kong with a hip style. When it came time for their very pre-wedding we went all out to create a unique set of stylish images. Starting before dawn this 8-hour session took place over 12 hours resulting in one of our favorite pre-wedding!
Authentic pre weddings Prague winter couple at sunrise
Joyce & Timmy - Winter Sunrise!
This Hong Kong couple dreamed of having a snow-covered landscape for their winter pre-wedding. Unfortunately, we ended up with no snow and below-freezing temperatures. But that did not stop them from going all out to have an enjoyable pre-wedding in Prague.
The most beautiful engagement photos from Prague
Tina & Mike - Natural Light Sunrise!
Tina & Mike already had an exhaustive 3 wedding dress pre-wedding shoot in Taiwan and now wanted something more natural & fun. Their idea was to keep it simple and just to enjoy the moment. What unfolded is a wonderful morning where two people enjoyed the moment.
Annabelle & Nathan - grid
Annabelle & Nathan - pre-sunrise in Prague!
They traveled over from Hong Kong for their stylish & creative pre-wedding photoshoot in Prague. The magical city of 100 spires certainly did not disappoint. We led them to our favorite locations on a warm summer morning before the city awoke to allow them to experience the true beauty of Prague.

Pricing information

We have all heard of the horror stories of couples who chose their pre-wedding or overseas photoshoot photographer based on price and regretting it later. It can lead to a lot of embarrassment and heartbreak. Your pre-wedding portrait session is an investment in time, money, and emotion - hiring a professional photographer to ensure its success is crucial. After all - your photos are all that you will have to show from your overseas pre-wedding photography experience.

So how do you know if you are getting a real professional? Here are some helpful tips.

Budget

Budget pre-wedding photographers are between 50-100 EUR per hour. They are either still learning their craft or are hustling to make a bit of money on the side. They rarely have backup equipment or the expertise to handle every situation. Budget photographers lack the skills and experience of professional photographers regarding retouching, lighting, posing couples, making them feel comfortable, etc. As their price is low, so must the client's expectations. You can find 100's of photographers at the low end of the pre-wedding photography market anywhere in the world.

Talented & reliable pre-wedding photographers charge anywhere from 125-250 EUR per hour. These are the seasoned professionals who create quality as opposed to quantity. The discrepancy in this price range can be due to multiple factors, such as photographers from the East (Ukraine, Russia, etc,.) who are not living locally or paying taxes. Other factors can be the many part-timers who undercut the market for the experience. Some of these photographers may retouch your photos. The question is what level of retouching?

As the client, you should always ask to see examples if this is not clear by the quality of imagery on their website. For younger photographers retouching can be as simple as adding a lightroom filter. While others do no retouching at all.

The reality is professional photographers should be able to remove wrinkles, shadows, inconsistent colors, brighten teeth (and yes the color of your eyes), and make sure your skin looks flawless with no tan lines etc. Budget and mid-range pre-wedding photographers usually will not do this kind of work as they are competing only on price.

You can, of course, find higher-priced pre-wedding photographers at the higher end. You can also expect the following in their collections: hair & makeup, outfits, vans, and a lighting crew. As the sky is the limit on the high end it is really up to you how much you are willing to invest.

Best Approach

So what is the best approach to ensure you have the best pre-wedding photography experience?

1st you should always take the time to review sample galleries. It is not enough to view a portfolio of 20-30 of the photographer's best photos from many couples. By viewing 30-40 or even 50 images from every couple's gallery you will have a more honest appraisal of your photographer's ability.

2nd Retouching!

How much retouching do they provide? Knowing that many of these images will be shown on large screens or printed - means that these images must be up to a higher standard. Retouching takes time - in fact, a lot of time - especially if the ladies need a little bit of help on those curves or unsightly wrinkles. Or if you wish to remove people in your background who are ruining your images. Having a photographer who will take the time to remove distractions commonly found in images is a must-have.


3rd Ask about their crew. For example does the photographer work as a one-man operation? Or does he/she have a crew of assistants? Does your photographer capture only daytime motifs (scenes)? Or can they create nighttime images and portraits?


4th What will you receive as part of your collection? Does your photographer provide high-resolution files? If so what are the sizes of those high-resolution files? For many couples in Asia having the largest file possible to show up beautifully on those large screens is a must.


5th What is the turnaround time. This can be tricky for some couples who are planning a last-minute session. So always check as there is no point in hiring a photographer who can not promise to turn around your retouched files in time.


Conclusion

The real reason why so many photographers call themselves pre-wedding or overseas photoshoot photographers? It is because they think it is a quick way to make money. So please be smart. Ask as many questions as you feel that is needed. If your photographer can not be bothered to meet with you in person or online to answer your questions - perhaps they are not the right fit.

If you would like to discuss a possible session, please do not hesitate to get in touch. Every couple is unique, so should their pre-wedding photography.
