I guess you´re all tired of this winter and longingly waiting for spring to come. And you know what? Me, too! But when I´m looking at the pictures of this recent engagement shoot of Manuela and Martin I immediately take that back.
A snowy engagement at the Dobratsch was a really big wish of mine since I’m a Vienna wedding photographer. If you will the Dobratsch is Villach´s local mountain, one of the smaller towns of my home Carinthia. When I was a little kid I went skiing there and when I was a teenager I spent hours walking with my mother through the mountain´s forests. I have lots of wonderful memories of this place. And now there´s one more: I was honored to capture this likable and gorgeous couple´s engagement pictures there.
At the beginning of February not a single snow flake was found in the valley but the mountain already got a little snow and even had a white top. I was so excited to finally do this long-desired snow shoot.
We started to shoot with the whole family – Manuela, Martin and their two cute rascals. Obviously it got a little rough with the two unerring accuracy. It was so much fun fooling around with all four of them and I´m more than happy with the result.
Afterwards got a little quieter when I had only Manu and Martin in front of my camera. I could literally feel how much they love and trust each other. It´s always amazing to capture a deep and true love like this on camera. The way they looked into each other´s eyes, touched each other and interacted with another felt like a love movie playing right in front of me. We had wonderful light and it was freezing cold but we didn´t mind. Euphoria kept us warm!
Thanks a lot to Martin, Manu and their boys for this more than perfect afternoon! It was a great pleasure eternalizing these memories for you!
