Budapest, wauw wat een mooie stad! Deze anniversary sessie van Dusty Blue leverancier Michelle Wever laat niet alleen de pracht en praal van deze stad zien, nee ook een prachtig, elegant koppel die de liefde viert. Wat is de liefde toch mooi!
“Rachael nam contact met mij op om te vragen of ik haar met haar man Tyson wilde fotograferen in Budapest, om haar 30e verjaardag te vieren. De locatie die ze noemde was als een droom. Ik houd van alle neutrale kleuren en de zon die zo mooi reflecteert op de gebouwen, waar ik met mijn lichte romantische stijl heel blij van word! We spraken in de vroege ochtend af om 05:30 bij Fisherman’s Bastion en hadden een prachtige zonsopkomst. Rachael en Tyson zijn een van de aardigste mensen die ik heb ontmoet en zo dankbaar. Met veel liefde heb ik dit voor ze vastgelegd.”
Natuurlijk vroegen wij ook een aantal vragen aan Rachael.
Tell me something about the overall inspiration behind this photo session:
“My husband wanted to do something special and timeless for my 30th birthday. It had always been a dream of mine to take beautiful pictures in a breathtaking dress with a long train cascading down some gorgeous stairs. I soon realized, what better place to take these pictures than the very city where my grandparents were from – Budapest. Both my grandparents have passed on and I was excited to travel to Budapest in hopes of bringing back the many memories that I had of them growing up.”
Tell me something about the choices you made as you planned this occasion:
“I loved the location of Fisherman’s Bastion because of its viewpoint over the city of Budapest. The iconic Parliament building along the Danube river, St. Matthias church in the background and of course the many beautiful architectural features that the city has to offer. I found Michelle through several other european photographers that I followed on instagram and immediately fell in love with the style and feel of her photography. What I loved was her passion and excitement for every aspect and moment of our shoot.”
Tell me something about your love story:
“We have been together for 6 years. We met at a party in college – he was walking down some stairs and I was going up. We briefly looked at each other in passing, until my surprise when he called out to me by name, saying “Hi Rachael”. Long story short, he found me and called me to ask me on a date and the rest is history.”
Why is he the one for you?
“We’re very similar. Same dreams and aspirations in life. He loves me and takes care of me always. He is there for me whenever I need him, he’s my equal, my travel partner, my everything. I feel like when we try our hardest we balance each other out. We fill in what the other lacks. And he’s a great dad to my two cats!”
What do you admire about him:
“I admire that he works so hard and is always looking out for me. He always does as much as he can to make my life better and easier, even when I don’t even realize what he is doing. He doesn’t really like taking pictures, especially all the kissy lovey dovey kind in front of people. He knew how important this was to me and was willing to go along with it all. He is very good with always trying his hardest to make me happy.”
How did you experience the photo session?
“Beyond magical and one of the most incredible sunrises I have ever experienced. Being able to take photos with such a beautiful background, during a calm and peaceful sunrise will be something I will always treasure. I am Hungarian so taking pictures in Budapest felt like a connection to my family’s heritage and memories of my grandmother.”
