This gorgeous couple traveled up from Turkey for their dream wedding in Prague at the Turkish Embassy. When they arrived they realized that as much as they love this city they were shocked at how busy it had become with tourists. As the bride recounted - they were not expecting so many people and everywhere.
As we met up the day before in person I immediately liked them as they told me their dreams, their hopes and that they were both medical doctors back in Istanbul. They were just very sweet and warm as a couple and as individuals. Knowing that their wedding was at lunchtime I asked them if they would like to get up a bit earlier than expected and to have a sunrise session? Their smiles said it all. After a few moments of texting the hair & makeup artists - we were all set.
On the day of we started at the Charles Bridge as there really is no better place to start a session before dawn. The architecture, the ambiance of a nearly deserted city really stood out as did the deep blue sky. As is quite normal we made a set of staged portraits for their families and then we progressed through the morning where I simply encouraged them to be themselves and let me worry about the photos.
This picture is one of the many images captued that morning that beautifully shows what they were feeling. The wind picking up also added a bit mroe drama to her hair making the image that much more visually interesting.
It is one of my favorite images from that morning spent with two people who have been very busy as of late working in Istanbul.
