Surprise marriage proposal near Lucerne featuring Bobby and Summer from Washington DC, U.S.A. The location is in the mountains in front of the Hotel Villa Honegg.
Bobby invited Summer to Brunch at this five star hotel. He also invited me but I never got to eat anything! I was expecting it to be a buffet but it wasn’t. I had to monitor the situation. Bobby and Summer could leave anytime! I only had time for a coffee.
After Brunch they went for a stroll in the fields in front of the hotel. I found it difficult to become invisible to Summer. I kept my distance and behind Summer. She never turned around! I was some distance from them when Bobby went down on one knee to propose.
Surprise marriage proposals are difficult because the photographer never knows what will happen. The couple also forget about the position of the sun. On the day there was a lot of mist and difficult to see the mountains in the distance. Typical summers day with the sun high in the sky and in the wrong place.
The Villa Honegg is situated on the Burgenstock. A beautiful spot at 914 metres above sea level. Hotel Honegg opened in 1906 with 72 beds. Read more here → —
