We could easily say for us, moments in Altaussee are everything. They add meaning and let us remember exactly how we felt at the time. But most importantly, they are unique one-off events that will never happen again. And oh boy! This wedding was full of them at wedding photography in Austria.

It all began last year when we received a beautiful letter from Michelle and Alex, saying “we are a couple from NYC, and we plan to get married at Altausee Austria.” Michelle had found us on Instagram and immediately fallen in love with our work. A true connection! 

So there we were driving towards our Altaussee wedding photography, to capture two days of Michelle and Alex’s wedding celebrations. Michelle wanted to do a portrait session a day before the wedding, which we decided to shoot in Hallstatt. 

Hallstatt is an old-style Austrian city, with a beautiful lake in the middle of the city, surrounded by huge mountains, which created a stunning backdrop to our shoot.

The next day, Michelle and Alex’s wedding kicked off with preparations at the local hotel, Altaussee Austria. Next it was time for the wedding ceremony at a charming old church in the middle of the city, where guests were greeted to gorgeous bride escorted by her father, who gently held her dress. A meaningful moment! 

After the ceremony the celebrations moved on to a venue across the lake. The couple arrived standing on a boat, in the midst of raindrops which fell majestically from dark clouds. With dramatic mountains on either side, this was an unforgettable moment. Moments which continued long into the night.

Allow us to thank you sincerely, Michelle & Alex, for inviting us to your fantastic Altaussee wedding photography in Austria, we had a beautiful time! We wish you both all the best for the future!
