Proposal in Lauterbrunnen after visiting the Jungfraujoch

A lovely couple living in Texas, USA tied the knot at the end of February 2024. Below are some of the pictures from our photo shoot afterwards. It was before sunset on a mild day. No snow on the ground which was surprising for February. (There was plenty of snow on the ski pistes higher up in the mountains.)

The couple left their hotel in Interlaken and travelled to the Jungfraujoch. Their journey: Interlaken Ost to Grindelwald Terminal. The Eiger Express cable way to Eigergletcher station. The Train to Jungfraujoch. I kept in contact with Cole using WhatsApp. He sent me a message when he was leaving the Jungfraujoch.

The plan was to meet them on the return trip. Their journey: Jungfraujoch to Eigergletcher. Change trains. Eigergletcher to Kleine Scheidegg. Then the train to the Kleine Scheidegg to Wengen. Remember to download the free SBB app to plan your travel in Switzerland.

The photo shoot

They followed me at a distance to the location. Remember that this was a surprise proposal. I was unknown to Olivia. I needed 5 minutes to set up my equipment.

The photo shoot is scheduled to take 60 to 90 minutes. It is up to the couple. There is a little walking between 2 locations and the railway station.

Pictures are awesome thanks for all your hard work! You’re the best! Thank you – Cole and Olivia.

The couple had 665 pictures uploaded to their web gallery. I prefer to edit all of the pictures and let the couple choose their favorites. The couple will usually download all of the pictures in a zip file. Free unlimited downloads for 2 months. Editing is a lot of work. It takes 2 days on average to edit all the pictures. I also made a short video on my iPhone and we did an “airdrop”. I can also take a few pictures using the clients iPhone.

The couple are wearing white clothes. The sun is shining from the right side of the picture. I have to be careful about the light on their faces. This isn’t posed. It’s as it happened and I have no control over the situation. This is where experience counts.
