High mountain wedding session was a dream of the Bride and Groom, as well as ours. As a destination we choose polish Tatry mountains - The Valley of the Five Polish Lakes and the Great Siklawa Waterfall. We wanted to start shooting at sunrise, so we had to wake up at 1.00 a.m., and at 3.00 a.m. we were in the car for next 2 hours. Then started 1,5 hours hiking. And you have to know that this kind of sport, carrying all photo equipment and wedding clothing is not easy. But it was worth it!

After the walk we saw beautiful Great Siklawa Waterfall, which wasn't our final destination, but it inspired us most! Quick preparation and we could start shooting. With the rising sun lighting our models we loved every photo with the famous waterfall background. We almost left the place to get into another amazing scenery, full of mountain lakes, but suddenly we looked behind and saw beautiful back lit scene with our Couple, not anymore in the background of the waterfall. Despite the fact it was the beginning of our trip, it was the moment, we already knew that the best photo of the whole session was taken.

All of our photos are made with Canon 5D MKII camera, for this shot we choose Canon EF 16-35 2.8 lens (16mm f/22 1/320s ISO400). It was very contrastive scene so we had to use big silver reflex panel to put some light on our models. We wanted to catch natural sunf lare and the other reflexes appeared, because our lens was still covered with small drops of water, which came from the waterfall splashing on the rocks during previous shots. We were not going to remove these drops, just to get some additional "sparkling". In fact, there wasn't a lot to post process - we just made it a little bit warmer and adjusted contrast. We also added soft vignette to the photo.

Probably some of you may wonder, why we decided to wake up so early - the main reason is of course the opportunity to catch the soft light of rising sun, but what was also important, was the fact, that just an hour later the path was full of tourist, what made taking photos more difficult than earlier. The funny story was, that almost every one of them wanted to have a photo with the Bride & Groom (it is believed that it brings luck :-) ).
If you would like to know about any difficulties... Honestly, besides waking up in the middle of the night and then tiring hiking with all the equipment, we didn't face any difficulties - we were just in the perfect place during the perfect moment to catch such a beautiful scene. We have to say, it is our favourite photo of 2013 and we are still proud of it. It was also the first photo, that the couple saw - and we think, they love it as much as we do. We are also proud of the fact, that we showed some of our followers, that is it really worth to "sacrifice" themselves a little, to get a beautiful and unforgettable wedding
photos!

This shot was taken in-between courses of the couples wedding breakfast. I saw that the light was changing quickly as the sun went down and asked the couple to come outside with me
