Marie-Eve and Claus contacted me when they were planning a trip to the capitol of Austria to do an Engagement photo shoot in Vienna’s most beautiful gardens with me. Eve-Marie is a huge fan of empress Elisabeth and that´s why it was her heartfelt wish to shoot in the hometown of Austria´s former empress.
From day one on writing emails with Marie-Eve and Claus felt sincere and personal, so it wasn´t very surprising that we felt like on the same page right away as we met. Both are wonderful people with their hearts in the right place. You can not just see their love for each other, you can also feel it.
We started off in the courtyard of the Belvedere before we drove to the Park of Schönbrunn Palace The moment Marie-Eve went through the gates she had tears of joy in her eyes. Once you live in Vienna you take the city´s beauty for granted. Stepping through the gates with Marie-Eve was a very special moment for me, too, that showed me how much we should cherish our world and everything mankind created on it. Every single day. We should be proud of our country, our hometown, the world we´re living in. For this insight I want to thank Marie-Eve.
She beamed head over ears as we started shooting in front of the historic castle palace and it was a memorable day not just for the two of them. We moved to the courtyard for some portraits where our shoot ended among a beguilingly scented Wisteria tunnel.
Smiling and full of anticipation for what may come I said goodbye to them but not without telling them: Ci vediamo a Italia.
Because on thing´s for sure. I was not only honored to be the one shooting their engagement pictures that day, I´m also going to join and shoot their incomparable wedding at Lake Iseo in Italy!
