Romantic Sunrise Engagement Shoot in Historic Düsseldorf
The holidays are a few weeks behind us, and Valentine's Day is approaching. This only means one thing: engagement season is in full swing. Photo shoots are happening, wedding dates are getting set, and Save the Dates are being ordered—we love the flurry of wedding planning activity this time of year brings!
Naturally we also enjoy a great love story and gorgeous photos of lovely couples. So we're super excited to share Vanessa and Gunnar's sunrise engagement shoot in the German city of Düsseldorf. They're a fun, beautiful couple who are so obviously in love as they dance across the crowdless stone bridge.
Their actual shoot was held in a harbor area known as Medienhafen. It's a new and upcoming hip quarter on the Rhine River that's full of cool architecture, restaurants, and hotels. What a fantastic backdrop! With the stunning golden sunlight shining over the historic cityscape on a beautiful spring morning ... this sunrise engagement shoot is simply perfection. You'll love it!
We love color, so we also pulled in hues from their photos to create a sophisticated pink and teal-infused spring color combo that you'll simply adore.
MYSTICAL Palette by MagnetStreet Weddings
Azalea is a hot pink that fires up the passions and empowers this otherwise breezy color palette. Pairing this lively pink shade with a sea glass teal adds in natural balance and whimsy. Keeping this color combo monochromatic with gray and blue-gray shades maintains a sophisticated aesthetic—perfect for winter-into-spring weddings. There’s something so perfectly fresh about mixing hot pink with blues—sort of a girl-meets-boy feel!
