My first idea was not to write a single word, just upload to “werk-photos”, showing ourselves working hard. It should make it clear: we had a good time… :)
We felt like having met the fairy who fulfills our three wishes.
First of all, it had been a long dream of mine to make a photoshoot on a sailboat on the lake Balaton – and now, with the “Kék csillag”, one of the most spectacular sailboats of the lake, we had a special chance for it.
Secondly, I always loved to photograph dancers, and couples loving to dance – if I can convince a couple on an engagement session to dance, I’m always really happy… but now, we didn’t even need to “convince” Niki and Laci. We just showed them the infinite field of poppies, quickly mentioned that they could even dance… and that’s it. :)
For third: it’s always a little gift for us, whenever we can bring a photoshoot to the “Balaton-felvidék”, the spectacular uplands north from the lake Balaton. We are always amazed by the landscape – and now, even this wish of us was fulfilled. :)
After all, we at least need to do our best in the form of a slideshow to our “fairies”, who have been there, lived, loved, enjoyed, danced… and made this afternoon really nice for us. Sit back and enjoy – and of course, now we are keen to see what will the fairy bring for us on the wedding. :)
Given the distance between Salzburg and Budapest, we couldn’t meet in person Vicky and Tristan earlier, just a couple of days before their wedding (we have spent a few relaxing days at the beautiful lakes of Salzkammergut). It means we had to immediately start with their engagement session. We rarely start photographing couples right at the first meeting, and we were really worried about how it will happen this time. But right after the first two minutes, we simply forgot about all our fears and worries: just look at the pictures to understand why. Look all the details: how they look at each other, how they touch each other’s face, hands, shoulders… we just had to take care and not to disturb the fragile, silent and intimate little miracle surrounding them. Actually, this sophisticated little miracle, which may show up between a man and woman, is what we’re always trying to capture once we have a camera in hand. It’s hard for ourselves to evoke, but easy to recognize when it’s there. And now it was there… :)
In addition to the “inward” miracle, Vicky and Tristan had shown us some obvious and visible miracles in and around Salzburg. Thanks to a good friend we could start our engagement session in one of the finest hotels, and a suite with charming balconies over the flourishing parks, with a view of the castle of Salzburg… and we ended up surrounded by blue mountains and turquoise lakes: simply said, a picturesque backdrop; something a photographer should always dream about. :)
So, Vicky and Tristan, thanks for that afternoon – now, it’s our turn, with the slideshow and the photos of you and your little miracle:

Finding a couple who are enthusiastic members of a traditional folk dance group in Hungary since years (probably since childhood) – is definitely a gift for the photographer. Doing the same kind of pictures with someone who doesn’t like, doesn’t know this part of our traditions and culture will never work… but with these two: it was filled with life and joy. We are really thankful for being part of it. :)
So if you want to see some Hungarian traditions and culture, encapsulated in an engagement session: sit back, turn on the music, and enjoy the slideshow! :)
