Another Winter Wedding

Igor and Elena came from Israel to Prague for their winter wedding because they wanted something a little different.  After a brief ceremony in a small town outside of Prague, we had the rest of the day to take advantage of some fresh snow which had just fallen overnight.

With winter weddings, it's always best to spend an equal amount of time indoors and outdoors--especially when temperatures are below freezing!  With the cooperation of the friendly staff at the Hotel Savoy, we made full use of their lovely facilities for the indoor portrait session.  Afterward, we headed out into the sparkling snow for some bright white wedding pictures. The trees were frosty and the open spaces of Vyšehrad were the perfect setting for some winter magic.
Of course whenever I photograph a wedding in winter, I take care to keep the couple warm and happy with occasional tea and coffee breaks.  Fortunately, Vyšehrad has a charming little restaurant on the grounds for us to have a warm up break.

We had fun walking around the non-touristy side of Prague.  Vyšehrad is one of my favorite spots year round for the perfect portrait shoot:  it is the original fortress settlement of Prague, and ruins from the last millenium dot the site, as well as buildings added over the centuries.  Heroic statues loom large over a massive expanse of park lanes and trees, all overlooked by the impressive Neo-gothic church of St. Peter and St. Paul.

We got married at Prague in December 2010. After seeking for wedding photographer we found Craig's website and on that moment we knew that he will be our choice. And we did a right choice - Craig was very professional and patient, it was rather cold outside but he suggested very nice places outside (even with going in the snow) and he did all the job for 100%.
You can trust his professionalism and creativity and be sure that your photos will be authentic! Besides, he picked the shots where noone can see that the poor bride was VERY cold:) So I can recommend him to every couple seeking for very non standard thinking photographer since most of his colleagues suggest common places to take shots and if you are looking for unique pictures just rely on him!
