An intimate pre-sunrise / sunrise /  Golden Hour portrait session with Tiffany & Kiu captured at Prague Castle, the Charles Bridge and the Old Town Square.

When Tiffany contacted me she was not a happy lady. She already had a pre-wedding session and instead of capturing natural styled images that captured her and her fiancee Kiu’s personality the photographer instead posed them with a series of boring portraits. As Tiffany stated, ‘we deserve better than this‘ and then asked if I could do better.

To be honest, I was a bit worried as they were already feeling crushed by their bad experience and truth be told – there are some people you really can not make happy…   After spending time listening to her and discussing what was important to them, their backgrounds, their styles and their previous experience here, I decided to give them a try. Sometimes you really do pay for what you get here in Prague…

Experiencing the magical atmosphere of Prague Castle in the very early am before the city awakes is something I will never tire of. The history, the grandeur, the peaceful oasis of calm it offers is truly worth experiencing.  By starting their session up there and before sunrise I felt it was a laid back way to get them comfortable again in front of the camera. Yes, there was some posing involved – as you must direct a bit, but the look and feel of those images were what she really wanted.

After our portraits at the castle we headed to the Charles Bridge where the light was starting to break across the City of 100 spires. Sometimes you just get lucky and the flaring imagery was something I wanted to work more with. Tiffany being a West Coast girl – knew exactly what I was going for and was all smiles when I showed her some of those stunning flare shots.

As we were on the Charles Bridge I pointed to them the playground down below and the look in her eyes was all I needed. It was truly magical.

When we hit our 4th hour it was time to say our goodbyes but before we left I showed them a few more images on the back of the camera and then I asked Tiffany what she thought about her session and she responded with a huge smile: ‘everything is awesome!’

Presented here is a small collection of their images captured on that beautiful summer day in Prague with two wonderful people.

    My name is Vy Lieu (Vietnamese/Chinese). Together with my boyfriend Davor (Croatian) I will be visiting Prague from May 23rd – May 26th for our 5 year anniversary. I am looking for a photographer based in Prague. I saw your portfolio and I really like your style.

    We want some couple pictures in the romantic and beautiful city of Prague! We prefer pictures during sunset/golden hour when the city isn’t too busy yet.

    Will you be available on the 25th of may? What are your prices and will you have some suggestions to make it extra special?

    Hoping to hear from you!

    KInds regards,

    Hello Kurt, we will be visiting from Singapore and we wish to arrange a time to speak with you about our idea for a pre wedding in Prague and possibly in Dresden in early May. Can you write us with your package costs. We are interested in a sunrise and a sunset session for both places and welcome your ideas. We will have our out clothes but will need a beauty and hair person.

    Hello Kurt,

    My wife and I are having a belated honeymoon in May 2018. We will be flying into Prague May 16 and will be staying there for a few days (roughly May 16-May 19). We will be flying out of Prague May 31 and will be available a couple days before then, too (roughly May 28-May 31). Our dates in Prague are not settled yet as we haven’t reserved accommodations yet.

    We have an acquaintance who had couple’s photos done with you in Prague and was very impressed with the results. We wanted to do some anniversary photos, as well, while we were in Prague, and hoping you would be available as a photographer. We will likely bring our wedding dress and suit, and were thinking to have photos both in regular clothing style and wedding clothing style. Looking at your portfolio, I was particularly impressed with the photos you took around sunrise and sunset.

    Can you give me some information like:

    – Are you available around May 16-19 or May 28-31 to do a photo shoot?

    – Do you have any suggestions for photo concepts or anything you think we should bring?

    – Do you have any suggestions for locations?

    – Can you give an estimate on pricing?

    I look forward to hearing from you.


    Mike & Sinea
