Spring Proposal in the Alpe di Siusi, Italy

In January 2023 I received a handwritten letter from J, where she asked me to keep a little secret. For their photoshoot in Italy she planned to ask her partner for a forever. At this point I was already super excited! So we made plans, agreed on a codeword and a location.⁠

You can imagine, that he had NO clue. Not even a little bit.⁠ I will never forget the face he made.⁠ Since it‘s their own little (secret) story, I don‘t wanna say too much about it. But our hearts were full and our eyes watery. ⁠Oh, and why do I share this now after so many months? Well, because we three kept this a secret for many months till autumn to their secret elopement. ⁠But that‘s another story.⁠

Where do I start to say thank you? With the 6 hours car drive to Italy that we filled completely with talks? With the lightness and the laughter? With saying that this weekend is one to remember? I really don‘t lie when I say that these days were very special. Filled with a lot of honesty and deep talks. Thank you for choosing me to be your photographer. I appreciate your trust, your time and also your kindness to spend so much with me. Thank you J & P.

By the way his was not my first time in the Dolomites/Italy but my first time at Alpe di Siusi. I‘m amazed and humbled by what nature has created. And I‘m full of gratitude that I can move in it. Surrounded by nature, being exposed to all weather conditions - for me that is a couple shoot that embraces the heart. Yes please, more of that!
