Bridal and Ball gown photography in Vienna

During the end of January I got a phone call wondering if I was interested in photographing ball gowns and bridal gowns. Frida, a friend of mine from Vienna, where I used to live, had a designer and wedding planner friend that needed some help capturing the beautiful gowns. It took me approximately a second to say yes! – I would love to do that!

Renee is Frida’s good friend who is a designer and wedding planner and was interested in entering the ball gown market in Vienna for the next Ball season. Renee lives in the UK but does most of her work in the Asian market however wanted some beautiful, typical back drops from Vienna.

After some planning and arrangements we decided to coordinate an awesome photoshoot around the streets of Vienna on the 9th of April. That day, the weather was on our side as we had sun and 20 degrees compared to the day after when it was windy, raining and around 13 degrees.

There was only one thing that put the day on the edge. The night before the shooting I woke up at 05.00 with an eye infection! My left eye, my camera eye, was like a disaster! It was burning and tears ran out of my eye like I was crying. So, if you wonder why I’m wearing sunglasses on the pictures when I’m shooting it’s because of the eye infection. So no contact lens on the left eye, sunglasses and shooting with my right eye. But we made it! YAY!

The crew was made up of six people wandering the streets of Vienna looking out for the best spots we could use as back drops for the pictures. I think we managed quite well.

Enjoy the beautiful dresses and the environments of amazing Vienna.

A very typical car in Vienna. The horse chariot.
When you shoot during the middle of the day it’s great to play with the shadows.

You better be quick in this area. Lots of tourists and cyclists.
