Turkish Embassy Wedding in Prague
Penar & Cem wedding day sunrise portrait session in Prague
When we met up the day before their wedding I immediately felt a connection with Penar & Cem. They were so excited about their wedding and of course experiencing the beauty of Prague. They had traveled over from Istanbul with their close family members to marry at the Turkish Embassy and were really hoping for something quite extraordinary for their wedding day. But there was one thing that was bothering them: the amount of tourists. They were also not happy that their wedding took place at lunchtime. Truth be told lunchtime is really the worst time of day to get married and then to have to stand outside in the heat and be surrounded by tourists was not an experience I thought they deserved.
I listened to their stories about how they met, his BMW and their dreams of practicing medicine in the UK - if they can have their accreditation be accepted which is no easy feat if your from Turkey. The more I listened to them the more I liked them and I thought, why not propose something special to them? The truth is I work so often very early in the am capturing portrait session for my many Asian couples I knew that this experience would blow their minds. Their eyes lit up and their smiles said it all. Their concerns were allayed when a quick phone call to one of my favorite hair & make up artists saved the day - thanks Linda! All was arranged - the only thing we needed was wonderful weather...
On the morning of we met up on a nearly deserted Charles Bridge before the sunrise and slowly began capturing and creating photos. As many of my pre wedding sessions are a collaboration, I wanted them to not only experience the amazing beauty of that beautiful moment but to have images for them and about them. After all it is their wedding day.
Sometimes the best things are left unsaid and so I will leave it here and let their beautiful photos speak for themselves.
