Vienna, the City of Music and Dreams, is an absolutely fabulous city for lovers of history, architecture, and romance. Cole, a resident of Amsterdam, decided this was the city to propose to his American girlfriend of 4+ years. So he made the right decision and hired Sebastian and Malgosia, talented local photographers, to capture his proposal to his girlfriend.
She Said Yes!
The photographers opted to do the shoot at the world-famous Schönbrunn Palace. And as you can see,
the results were as magical as anyone whose dreamed of an international romance could hope for. Walking up the main avenue to the palace our two photographers were perfectly placed to capture a quick candid moment of Cole’s unsuspecting girlfriend as he led her to the exact prearranged place.
From there, all it took was Cole’s courage not to fail him, and it didn’t. With Sebastian and Malgosia working seamlessly in the background, they captured the moment his girlfriend’s surprise became nearly overwhelming as she reeled. And of course, said yes. Which they then sealed with kisses and walks around the historic grounds.
The grounds of Schönbrunn Palace made for a stellar shoot. The spacious paths made beautiful lanes for the newly engaged couple to capture their new walk together on. The background of the palace itself is eye catching and ensures these proposal photographs will always inspire commentary on the when and where of them. And with the direction of a professional vacation photographer both the initial moment of the proposal to the walk around the gardens and grounds were perfectly captured.
Local Photographers Are Knowledgeable
If you’re looking to immortalize a precious moment with photography there’s no reason not to hire a professional. You want to ensure that you capture not only the best angle of you and your partner, of
course. But a local photographer will also better understand when and where the shoot should happen.
Perhaps the lighting at a less visited bridge is spectacular during the Golden Hour and the lack of tourists will give you a romantic seclusion that the usual scenes wouldn’t. Sebastian and Malgosia knew, of course, that Schönbrunn Palace was the perfect place for an international proposal. The walkways immediately around the palace are treeless and well-lit by the sun. And the cheery yellow and white tones of the palace beautifully complement the dark clothing choices of the happy newly engaged couple. They even chose a hill from where the couple would have all of Vienna as a backdrop in addition to the palace itself. The knowledge of a local photographer should never be underestimated!
Professional Photographers Give Professional Results
The gear of dedicated photographers will also ensure a perfect capture. Even a hobby-level DSLR doesn’t come with the wide angle lens you’ll need to capture the expansive field of view that shows off both the two love birds as well as the avenues and palace itself. It takes a serious investment in gear that not all vacationers are going to invest in. And even if you do…Who is going to take the picture for you? Trust a local professional to ensure your shoot goes perfectly. After all, the moment itself will only happen once.
