Spring in Vienna

The Gloriette at Schönbrunn Palace, Vienna | Surprise Proposal Session

Eddie had emailed me telling me that he and his girlfriend Faith were flying to Paris for vacation.
Only they weren’t. They had a layover in Paris, but their end stop was actually in Vienna (something Faith didn’t find out until they landed in Paris), a city they both had wanted to see. They met through mutual friends and (if I recall correctly) they both were dating other people at the time. Given their friend’s close circles and a bit of time they both were soon back in touch with each other. Eddie confessed to me that he really liked Faith and when they both were at a Billy Joel concert he asked Faith to be his girlfriend while the song “Vienna” played in the background.

Karlsplatz, Vienna | Mia of miaseilern

Mia and I met through the Women of Vienna group nearly a year ago, when she was interested in getting into film photography. We met up for coffee and talked about photography and during that coffee chat I got to know a little more about her. She is a Georgian born soul who married her best friend Jesse and relocated to Vienna. She and I both share a mutual love of food (#foodislife) and she is witty as all get out. She is easy-going and loves to laugh (basically my favourite kind of person) annnnnddd she is the boss lady of miaseilern (of which her food section is my favourite, she's got Austrian recipes on there!).

Vienna, Austria | Melinda of NativeFingerprint

I met Melinda through a blogging group when she launched her website on how to turn a space into a home. I was mesmerized by her website name and even more with her ideas and talent for taking a space and turning it into something beautiful. (Seriously, you must go check out her site and additionally, her ideas). I was even more delighted to meet her in person during her session. I didn't have to work hard at all to get her to smile; she laughed at practically everything I said and was so easy to photograph!

Volksgarten, Vienna | Heather Family Portraits

I just adore this family. My cheeks always hurt when I walk away from their session because I've been laughing so much. Fiona and Adam are so lively and cheerful and I just want to bottle their energy up and keep it for myself. For their spring session we went to Volksgarten because it's the perfect backdrop for a spring session. Every time I return there's more and more roses.

Volksgarten, Vienna | Laufert Family Portraits

Despite it being spring, it was a rather overcast, blustery, and chilly day for being the time of year when everything was supposed to be warming up. Nonetheless the roses were out in full display; I suspect they knew I was intending to use them as backdrops throughout the Laufert's portrait session (kudos to you roses, you performed beautifully).
