Suki & Stephen - 2 days of photo shooting in Prague and Hluboka nad Vltavou Castle

A wonderful couple who opted for a more natural style of portraits ( a few posed upon request) as they had a very relaxed, laid back photo session in Prague followed the next day by an intimate wedding with close friends at Hluboka Castle.

Day 1 a natural styled / reportage pre-wedding photo shoot captured at many of Prague's iconic locations: Pachtuv Palace, Lavka (near the Charles Bridge) Charles Bridge, Mala Strana, Prague Castle. An afternoon break for a new hair & outfit change and then a night session at the Rudolfinum, Charles Bridge, Riverside and the Astronomical Clock in the Old Town Square.

Day 2 - a reportage of their intimate and beautiful wedding at Hluboka Castle followed by a few portraits on the castle grounds.

day 1:  2 lighting assistants  / hair & makeup entire session /  8 hours split in to 2 - 4 hour sessions

day 2:  1 lighting assistant / hair & makeup prep / 4 hour session - wedding / dinner / final

A personal favorite - the wedding & pre-wedding portrait session with Suki & Steven.

Truth be told, there are so many wonderful, stylish & very beautiful images from their session and wedding day that we can have two separate galleries. First off, Suki & Steven are two very easy going and laid back people who are a joy to be around.. Second they are truly photogenic (their friends are as well) and so we just spent our time following them around, posing them for a few and just capturing them soaking it all in. 

The light on our day was quite soft which lent itself to a very pastel look and they were ok with that and of course the locations are always a plus. The few times the sunlight peaked we took advantage of that as well. I think the whole thing got off to a wonderful start where we moved around many pieces of furniture in their suite overlooking the Vltava and looking up to Prague castle at the Bellevue Palace for Suki and later Steven's very elegant portrait session.

My only regret, not having any gardens to work with as that would have only added another level - but then again it was February.

Castle Hluboka nad Vltavou wedding / Suki & Steven / photography

Suki & Steven traveled over from Hong Kong to marry at the stunning Castle Hluobka outside of Prague. With close family members and friends in attendance it was a beautiful candle lit ceremony. Though the weather was freezing that did not stop them from having a wonderful time exploring the castle grounds. But not to be outdone, they also opted to have a truly stunning all day portrait session in Prague. What I really enjoy about Suki & Steven was how laid back and easy going they were.

To Suki & Steven, you two are truly wonderful people. I very much wish you much happiness, prosperity and success in you new lives together as husband and wife.
