Andrea and Gilberto has invited us to one of the greatest locations we have ever been to photograph a wedding. Even though it’s hard to compare a human-made building with picturesque mountains, we have to admit that the Villa Luppis was a 100% Italian atmosphere – with all of its details, the Villa itself, and of course also the hospitality and culinary aspects. What we have learned from Gilberto is that a person is perfectly defined by his details – and then, we have to admit, that the location itself serves as a perfect definition, or statement. And we loved it. :)
However, even the best wedding location is empty without people, relations and emotions – and here, we had everything: love, smile, tears of joy, hugs and kisses, those good friends who would solve ANY occurring problem for the groom (you know what I mean :) ), … and we were lucky to be part of it, and get the chance to capture it in photos.
Our first and foremost recommendation is to sit back and enjoy the slideshow, intended to tell the whole story – but for those who would like to have a quick insight before the slideshow, we have selected some of our favourite images below. :)
Clicking on the photos makes them bigger! :)
We had the chance two spend a weekend on a spectacular location surrounded by picturesque mountains of Wilder Kaiser – a real ski-paradise, in the summertime. Sounds contradictory, but it was stunning, really. From the very beginning, we were sure that at least our eyes will be pleased – this is how the day started:
A little later we have learned that the day is not only for those who see, but also for those who feel – and the latter is always more difficult to photograph. But I always like to see the guests, friends and family, when they are queueing to congratulate, tell a few words or just hug the newlyweds. The faces, moments tell a lot about how they feel about each other – and here, these faces were telling something really heartwarming. There’s nothing that tells so much about you than your relationship with your friends…
And finally, a memorable picture that I have to highlight: their look, and that rolling teardrop – probably the most touching image a wedding photographer can ever make. Clearly, it’s not the photographer who makes this picture, it just happens – but we had the chance to take the picture. And then we have the wedding summarized in a single photo:
Dear Nina and Sebi, and of course of all you nice people, please turn on the music, switch to fullscreen, sit back and enjoy the slideshow:

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:
