Every summer brings a lot of projects: new places, new faces. And every couple I work with is unique, but every year I meet particular lovers that make the whole season amazing. Among them are my friends Anna and Rene whom I suddenly met one day in the street. As a result we carried out a fantastic engagement in Prague photo shooting. Please, find below the story and the photos from one June moring.
We started our photo shooting early in the morning. The city was just waking up when we on our planned route. And the plan was to capture some moments of love with fascinating background of the attractions and most popular places of interest.
Old Town Square
In the list of “must see places” in Czech Republic the Old Town Square is among 10 first positions. This used to be a historical, political, cultural and trade centre of old town. Nowadays this is the square with most recognisable symbols of Czech Capital. Therefore lots tourists flood the area all the day round. Thus the only way to make some photos in the Old Town Square is to get up early and to be creative.
We managed to implement the idea of Rene in the photo above. No people around, just two beloved laying on the stones of the Square.
Gothic VS Bright
While planning this engagement in Prague we discussed all the locations where to go. Anna suggested having a mixture of street photos with some taken in a garden. And of course we wanted to reflect not only the gothic character of the city, but also to show it’s bright side.
What I personally like in morning Prague is that it has magic atmosphere. In childhood I used to read a lot of fairy tales and always had in my imagination the view of an old city. So, my first visit to Czech capital opened me the views of the place like in my dreams. Therefore I’m like so much to discover new places so early, without crowds of tourists and locals.
The brightest place with amazing ambiance and interesting pictures is the Lennon Wall. Tourists, lovers and young people like to take photos near the wall. Together with Anna and Rene we also didn’t miss such an opportunity to capture picturesque views of Lennon wall without crowds.
We started to climb the Prague Palace, which opens gorgeous views over the city and the river. This is another must see place, because the Palace is one of the most popular attractions. And I think you already follow my thought about the best time in Prague for engagement photography.
That June morning gave us sunny weather and perfect mood. Ideas came to us with every new step. The Sun was our guide!
If one day you are going to visit Czech Republic and its capital, try to recollect this engagement photo story and to find the tree in the picture below in order to take the same picture with no people.
In order to save some time on walking down the hills, we decided to take a tram. To tell the truth even I as a professional wedding photographer couldn’t have expected that the idea of fast transportation would just be another step of the story. With help of the amazing morning light I managed to take some gorgeous shots.
We broke some rules and looked the windows, though a sticker asks not to hang out of the window. We were young and crazy, full in love and desire to make something really special!
If you ask about the most mysterious and atmospheric place in Prague, I would say with no doubt that such a place is the famous Charle bridge. It has very interesting legends, it is beautiful and impressive. Therefore thousands of tourists coming to see Czech Republic and its capital have this Bridge among must see places. We also came to the place in order to take some unique engagement photos.
We spent about 4 hours with Rene and Anna walking the city and taking photos. The time flew fast and after the picture on the Bridge we finished this engagement in Prague photo shooting in order to see each other one day at the big day of these two beauties.
Thank you so much Rene and Anna, your couple is always in my heart!
