This young couple from Japan dreamed of traveling to Europe and marrying at one of its grand churches. After looking around they came across some websites showcasing the gorgeous scenery of Prague. The medieval city of Prague had won their hearts. On a beautiful summer day their wish came true as they exchanged their vows underneath the historical frescoes of St. Nicholas Church in the Old Town.
After their wedding they took a horse & carriage ride around the Old Town before jumpin off and walking to the historic Vrtba Garden. They were extremely impressed with the landscaped gardens and more importantly the incredible views it offered them. One of their favorite pictures are of them as they stand happily taking in the sites of the red roofs of Mala Strana down below.
As we still had time left, I asked out trustry translator if they were interested in one more surprise location? They replied that as everything was picture perfect so far why not. And with that we took them to a location high above the city that provided them with an unforgettable view of not only Prague but of the castle down below. The light was also too gorgeous to pass up and so some portraits of the bride all alone were created. As it is important to show the couples what I am doing I showed her the back of the camera and she flashed a radiant smile. Though many of my couples from Japan do not speak English nor do I speak Japanese we always find a way to make everything turn out beautifully. The key is to be flexible understand their needs and be willing to take risks that they will appreciate.
The portraits that we captured above the city and especially with that beautiful summer sunshine will be treasured for a lifetime. It was also a fitting way to end our time with this lovely couple who were able to live their dream of marrying in Prague.
