Diamonds & Pearls: elegant post wedding Love Story
Catherine & Cedric.Son had the lavish gala wedding back home in Korea filled with all of the pageantry and revelry that these two very successful people rightfully deserved. Yet there was one thing missing from their wedding experience: a proper set of wedding portraits that they could be proud of and hang on their walls.
As they were putting together their travel plans of Europe they decided that it was time to right that and asked me about creating a very special post wedding portrait session for them in Prague.
On an Autumn day and right on cue the sky provided us with a gorgeous backdrop of colors above the majestic Charles Bridge. It was a picture perfect background for their very elegant and stylish portraits. After a few images were captured, I quickly showed them on the back of my camera what they looked like. It was obvious that this was exactly what they were looking forward to.
After having the more studio styled portraits captured I backed off to allow them to enjoy the scenery of the bridge and as the sun began to rise higher the flare presented us with a completely different style of images. Flare! When a couple are having a great time I tend to back off and let them explore and enjoy their time. We led them around to many places where they could do just that. Only stopping for a few art directed and sophisticated portraits.
As we headed back to the Charles Bridge the Golden Light Hour was upon us and some of their favorite bridal portraits of Catherine were created before we headed up to Letna and then our final stop for the morning session - the river.
After a break and much needed rest, our trust hair & makeup artist Eliska prepped them for the evening session. As we arrived to meet them at the hotel Cedric.Son asked if we can create some stylish portraits of the bride in the hotel room. Of course I was game. And then it was off to the castle for their evening session. The best thing about Prague Castle in the evening - they nearly had it all to themselves as they explored it. The photos really capture just how laid back and relaxed they were in the evening and how much they enjoyed the experience.
