Welcome to my pre wedding in Europe section of my webpage. Given the fact that i receive a lot of Pre wedding photo session requests in Europe, I have decided to post more information here.
So yes, I offer pre wedding photo session all over Europe. Until now I have photographed couples in Germany, Italy, Switzerland, France, UK, Belgium, Holland, Czech Republic, Austria, Hungary, Romania and Spain. Let me explain now what is the differences between pre wedding photo sessions in Asia and here in Europe.
As I well know, in Asia the photographer has a big team who offer everything. They have the dress and suit rental and hair and makeup services. Here, in Europe that is not the case. Renting a dress for a couple of days costs around 500 euro. That’s why I always suggest that the bride should bring her own dress. I don’t offer also hair and make-up services for brides but I have contacts all over Europe and I could find someone good to work with.
I know that everybody is mega excited going and having a pre wedding in Europe in big cities like Paris, London, Prague or Venice. But let me tell you one thing. Let’s take London for example. Yes, it’s a wonderful city with lots of landmarks, no question that. But please take something in consideration. Big and well known cities are always (summer and winter) full with tourists. The distances between landmarks are big, parking places are hard to find and are very expensive. No, I’m not saying that it’s impossible to take beautiful photos there. I’m just saying that we will have to work together and follow closely my advices.
First of all I always recommend that we would have at least two days for this pre wedding photo shoot. We will arrive in the morning and we will start in the afternoon when the light is good. We will continue until the evening then we will make a pause until the blue hour when we will choose one landmark to photograph. It would be quite difficult because landmarks, in the evening are usually overcrowded. But we will manage to do that. After that we will take also some night photos. Then, the next day we will wake up very early in the morning (it will be still night) to catch the sunrise. It is our best opportunity to catch the landmarks empty.
All the tourists usually party till night and sleep till noon. So then, in the morning is our best time to photograph. Our photo session will end at the end of the morning when the light would become stronger and bad for photos.
In the end from such a pre wedding photo session you will receive around 40 photos wonderfully retouched like the ones you see here. If you would like to ask me more questions, feel free to use my contact form.
