Celebrating with Valerie and Falko - we quickly learned - involves a lot of lake action and... well, nudity. From their get-together at lovely Villa Langer to their wedding at a private property the following day. In short: a couple just to our liking. Having grown up at a lake ourselves (well, at least Sass did), we, too, cannot ever resist the temptation of (skinny) dipping if time allows and opportunity arises. Valerie and Falko, however, seized pretty much any opportunity and invited their wedding party to come along. Here is a first: for the first time ever, we did a bridal shoot with a bride who jumped in the lake first and then had her photo session. These are the kind of priorities we hope to communicate to our couples (if they do not already know): your wedding is your party. You are here to live it, not for the pictures. The pictures are to keep these memories alive. A quality, granted, that often receives a retrospective appreciation. And as this is their first wedding anniversary, here is to indulging in memories. Congrats, you two!

A refreshing start in the wedding day looks like this.

Another lesson learned: when celebrating in one of Austria's most stunning environments in your private garden, treat yourself to a transparent tent to keep the views and enjoy the sunset.
