Sven & Laura – Wedding Photographer South Tyrol, Italy
Oh my god! That’s about what I thought when it finally became reality. A couple shooting with the two wonderful young people Sven and Laura at Lago di Braies (German: Pragser Wildsee). This unique lake lies exactly at 1494m altitude in South Tyrol, Italy.
The Dolomites are already amazing, but this lake (part of the nature park Fanes-Sennes-Prags) is without words. This morning we got up at 4am to get to the lake early enough before the crowds hit. On the way to the lake it rained almost all the time. After arrival, yes you can safely guess, it has continued to rain. And that was probably the reason why no soul could be seen on this cool September day. Okay, we met a woman with a dog, that’s about it.
The two are South Tyrolean and live in about 1 hour’s drive from Lake Braies. They were nevertheless the first time at this magical place and fortunately for a adventurous photo shoot. They walked on the beautiful shore of the lake, danced (soaked through) in a circle and even dared to stand to their knees in the cold waters of the Lago di Braies. The rain was quickly forgotten and gave the whole thing some magic. The love between the two was in any case obvious.
What an experience in such a well-known place felt to be the only photographer in South Tyrol / Italy. This does not happen very often and of course has contributed to making the couple pictures great.
The mountains, the green of the trees, the lake and the unique atmosphere will always be remembered.
Sven pointed out: If the two marry one day, I would have a serious chance to become their wedding photographer in South Tyrol (or wherever in this world).
We will see…
