Join Sandra Aberg and the La bride team in Lago di Braies, Italy on Silvia and Roberto’s pre-wedding photography session that’s as captivating as a picture.
Silvia and Roberto are two laid back and easygoing individuals. With obvious passion for each other, you would have thought that they were another couple who got together in a whirlwind of time. They weren’t. Being together for 20 years, they know well how their other half reacts, laugh and their good and bad habits in life.
It was a perfect match to have Lago di Braies (Pragser Wildsee or Lake Prags) as their engagement shooting spot. With beautiful valleys, the lovely aquamarine blue waters create a calming backdrop for the shoot. The simple wooden row boats were the perfect compliment to the serene mountain setting and the colour of the water was intensified by all the sunlight and the clear blue sky.
Their shots were split into different small locations. It started with a romantic boat ride and then to a spot of the hill and then to the dock where the couple had prepared a picnic to enjoy. Rowing the boat together, they couldn’t be happier in this setting, contentedly enjoying each other’s company in this warm sun.
Roberto was a classic Italian suave in his crisp blue jacket, white shirt and khaki pants. Silvia started in a beautiful white gown with flower wreaths for a dreamy feel, to a lovely green dress which is more seductive to the eye. In the end, she wore a white blouse, pants and heels for their picnic shot for a more casual look.
The weather, the lake, the reflections, and Silvia and Roberto’s love story all came together to create this magical experience and a fairy tale engagement session. Thanks to Sandra Aberg for this lovely insight. Let’s wish them a fairytale ending too!
