Austrian Alps Wedding Photography – Zell am See

Winter Adventure Wedding

If you need your photographer to snowboard down a mountain with you while you’re in all your wedding gear, I’m your girl. This wedding was so much fun. I’m calling it an adventure wedding because a) How many weddings do you get to go to that start in a small Austrian hall (at 10am), then b) transport all the guests to the top of a mountain for lunch and a party, and c) only to all ski/snowboard down for dinner and the after party. It was organised to perfection. It was an adventure wedding.

Zell am See

Mike and Shula come to this ski resort, Zell am See, a few times a year. The area has plenty of terrain, but doesn’t have that big resort feel to it that you get other places in the Alps. We came out for the whole week, as we hadn’t snowboarded in a couple years and wanted to make the most of it. We fell in love with the area. Down in the town there’s a gorgeous lake, and we were impressed that even towards the end of March we could ride from the top, all the way into Zell. One day we took a quick shuttle over the glacier, Kaprun, and had a beautiful powder day.

The Wedding – Hotel Heitzmann

I love that these guys made it a week long affair. We got so much time up on the mountain, and had the most beautiful sunny day on the wedding day itself. In the evening we headed back to the Hotel Heitzmann for a superb dinner. (We actually booked our entire stay at this hotel which included our dinner every night, and it was the best food ever. Not a buffet, but a sit down 4 course meal with allowances for vegetarian and pescatarian.) The evening entertainment was an amazing band, The Side Project.

Way to go guys. You truly organised the perfect week, and wedding day.

A Thought on Leaving China
So we finally got word last week that we will be leaving China, with a date set for July 18th. I am so excited to get this news because for a long time we have never had a definite date, and now there is an end in sight and we can actually plan for it. If we had known when we first arrived here that we would be staying for almost 11 months there's so many things I would have done differently. But for the past 9 months we've been thinking that we're leaving in just a couple months and I don't feel as though we ever really settled into China fully. For example, I would have gotten a job that was going to last longer, and I would have starte ...

Xiamen China Engagement Photography – Diana and Sam
Pre wedding sessions. Awesome locations. Lovely couple. And funky architecture.Sam and Di are good friends who's wedding we celebrated the night before we left China to move here. A gorgeous Hong Kong wedding. But of course, we took some engagement photos a few months beforehand.This was a little mini-sesh, we got together early one morning and explored the area around our city, Xiamen. Since being in Xiamen, whenever we would walk down to the park near the waterfront, we would go under the overpass with all the vines crawling up it, in a very 'life after people' kind of way. I've always wanted to put a couple in a frame there.
