Budapest, Hungary is a beautiful city that is perfect for weddings and engagement sessions for international couples. The city is rich in history and culture, and it offers a range of stunning locations that are perfect for capturing the love and intimacy of a newly engaged couple. As a wedding photographer based in Budapest, I was thrilled when Jennifer and Erno contacted me from London, UK to have their engagement session photographed.
Jennifer and Erno’s love story was unique. Jenni is from Asia and Erno is from Hungary, they met in London where they currently reside. They contacted me through Instagram, and I was delighted to have the opportunity to plan this engagement session from start. The day before the session, we rented an Airbnb with a view of the Chain Bridge and the old city, and we spent the evening getting to know each other over a glass of red wine. The apartment was close to the main locations we wanted to photograph. It’s always important to be close to places where a photo session will take place while traveling creates lots of unwanted stress.
On the day of the session, we woke up at 3 am to prepare for the shoot. Jennifer had a hair and makeup appointment with Liv Redeg, who is a talented makeup artist based in Budapest. Liv did an amazing job, and Jennifer was thrilled with the result. We started the session at the historic theater, which was a perfect backdrop for capturing elegant and luxurious pictures.
After the theater, we explored the old town, taking pictures in different locations on our way. Later we stopped at a cozy coffee shop and spent some time enjoying a fresh expresso.
As an experienced wedding photographer in Budapest, I understand that every couple is unique, and I aim to capture their love in a way that reflects their personalities and style. I offer personalized services that are tailored to each couple’s needs, whether they are looking for a classic and elegant style or something more contemporary and adventurous.
I personally believe is that a great wedding photographer should be more than just a person with a camera. A photographer should be someone who can create a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere that allows the couple to be themselves and truly enjoy the moment. Therefore, my number one priority is for my clients to feel relaxed and without stress, because only then I can create pictures that will grow in value over time.
If you are planning your wedding or engagement session in Budapest and are looking for a fine art photographer who can capture the essence of your love story, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me. I would be honored to be a part of your special day.
