Surprise proposal in Dolomites

Braies Lake engagement session

This photo session happened at the end of a busy wedding season.
And it was the best photo escape so far.Jakub and I are colleagues from the wedding industry. He is a videographer from DIB production and we are used to work together. But to be honest, this was the hardest task of the season. Because trick a girlfriend of your friend is always hard. It is even harder if you join them at their holidays for two days in a different country (and bear in mind that she had no idea about me joining them up until it actually happened.)

I was already involved from the very beginning of the planning process. I helped Jakub to choose the ring designer and little did I know that I will in a few months pick up the ring in 27 jewelry store and travel with it to the Italian Dolomites.When Jakub started with surprise proposal planning, he wanted to make it in the mountains. Kata, his wife to be, loves climbing and hills. Dolomites were on the bucket lists for so long, so it became THE place of his proposal. The only thing was – how to get me there, what to tell Kata so that they could meet me in Italy (with a camera) and how to explain me spending two days with them and at the same time not cause any suspicion that something is in the air.

Jakub made up a story about me photographing a wedding in Italy.
Kata was complaining earlier they don’t have pictures together so when I am already in Italy with the camera so I can join them for a day and we will capture some couple portraits, huh?
She happily agreed (because if not, I don’t know what we would do!:))
And here we go, on the shore of Lago di Braies I spent beautiful few days surrounded by incredible nature, with an incredible couple and I can share with you this beauty.
