Pre-Wedding Portrait Description
Moon Ley & Bharat are fans of architecture and of course with this being their first time in Vienna we wanted to really mix things up a bit and show them a large variety of famous Viennese landmarks. We decided to start our day off in a casual and fun way at Prater, which is a well known haunt in Vienna with its giant Ferris Wheel (Riesenrad) that was erected in 1897 and has been featured in countless movies.
After our visit to Prater it was back to the flat for an outfit change and then off to the famous Parliament building with its incredible architecture. This part of Vienna is simply stunning and a wonderful place for some single portraits of Moon Ley who looked like a princess as she stood in front of the Parliament building as not only the police but a small crowd watched as our portrait session unfolded.
Afterwards it was off to one of the most spectacular locations in Vienna for pre wedding portraits: the Schoenbrunn Palace. We arrived just in time as the sun was setting behind the stunning Gloriette. The Gloriette sits atop the hill looking down over the famous Schoenbrunn Palace and the beautiful sites of Vienna. It is also an incredibly romantic spot for portraits especially when there are so few people milling about as it was on our evening.
After returning to the centre it was time to warm up a bit at the famous Viennese landmark Cafe Griensteidl before one final outfit change before heading out for one final time.
The wonderful thing about doing a pre-wedding portrait session in Vienna is the incredible amount of incredible architecture. There is simply so much of it that you never truly feel like you see enough. The other thing, getting to know a young couple and capturing them experiencing the new sites and of course those new memories. I do hope that the following edit of images captures not only the beauty that is Vienna but also the personalities of a young & wonderful couple: Moon Ley & Bharat.
To Moon Ley & Bharat, I truly hope you enjoy the memories captured during your stay in Vienna for generations to come. And I wish both of you much love, happiness and success in your future as husband and wife. Looking forward to meeting the two of you again. All the best, Kurt
