Solo traveler Budapest

Why travel solo 

Travelling alone is a world wide phenomenon and a huge trend right now. It is much easier to travel alone or with a group of other solo travelers. Like some of us we don’t want to wait around for the ideal travel partner so we set off and arrange our own plan and go for that perfect holiday you have been longing for. Solo travelling doesn’t have to be lonely! Quite the contrary. Nowadays there are so many tour companies that tailor packages especially for singles and even specialising in female only travellers. Thus there is plenty to do and many opportunities to make new friends. After all there are no compromises and no need to agree on travel goals and activities. Sometimes.  Don’t forget that you might just feel a huge sense of achievement like climbing that huge mountain on your own or learning how to scuba dive. You can even have your personal photographer accompany you on your adventure and capture those exciting moments of your holiday. Conclusion; you can have loads of fun and relaxation on your Eat, Pray Love mystical adventure! Book your very own budapest photographer to capture those great photos!

Autumn inspiration Budapest 

Just because it’s getting colder and yes significantly colder, it doesn’t mean you can’t have beautiful high quality photographs. It just means that you have to dress warm and bear the colder moments and still look unposed and cozy in your vacation photos. The autumn months have their own beauty and meaning. With all the leaves falling and changing colour from green to different hues of browns and yellow has its own significance within the four seasons of European weather. The skies are more dramatic thus adds a lot of drama to your photographs and shows off more character. Choose your locations wisely and look for more prominent facades such as castles, old buildings and bridges. For engagements and couples photos  in Budapest those elements will frame your photos and add the drama that you want as they will look aged like a good bottle of Whiskey and heavy. In this amazing city there are so many historical facades and great backdrops to express your photography and add charisma to your holiday photos that makes everyone full of envy. Remember to adjust your highlights and shadows to show the bold skyline over Chain Bridge or Liberty Bridge or Arpad Hid, whichever bridges you fancy most in the cosmopolitan inner of Budapest.

a bright city with castles and museums

As a Budapest Photographer, I can always say how mesmerized I am with the cities castles, museums and antiquities. The landlocked city is studded with architectural landmarks and bridges.Hungary has an eclectic mix of art works. Ranging from Medieval art, also with Baroque fine paintings and facades and Gothic influences too. You can see a vivid collection of sculptures, paintings and buildings with influences from the age of Classicism, and Art Noveau and contemporary architecture. A collection of museums include the Acquincum museum, Museum of applied arts and the Hungarian National Gallery among many others. The biggest building is the Parliament building and one other noteworthy structure is one of the largest basilicas in Europe the Esztergom Basilica. Hungary is also home to the largest synagogue in Europe built in 1859. The most renowned building is the Royal Palace which sits on top of Buda Hill, surrounded with famous medieval , baroque and neoclassical houses, churches and squares know as the Castle District. The castle has been declared a World Heritage Site, including the Fisherman’s Bastion, which is the most ideal spot in budapest for surprise marriage proposals, that is if you are a true romanticists and planning an upcoming secret engagement. In that case don’t forget to book me as your couple photographer to seal the deal and crystalise your every minute.

Szentendre Town

Szentendre an arty farty outing

Szentendre is one of the most charming towns of Hungary. I especially enjoy the weekend outings to Szentendre, as you will not be disappointed in any way. There is a lot to do and loads to photograph and attractions to see. If you love little quaint souvenir shops, churches and little decorated and colourful houses from the olden days, you will love the charm and magic of Szentendre. This village dates back to the 17th century of Serb and German settlers and earlier, with such mosaic of art work. This town is famous for artists, poets, painters and intellectuals. This old settlement stands for a rich visual art history and home to famous and peculiar galleries. Ceramics are still made today and you can visit a few showrooms where you can view old traditions and craftsmanship.Today it has a flourishing tourist centre with people coming to visit the Cobblestone streets from all over the world. Having a few good restaurants and coffee shops and bars, you are really spoiled for choice for a continental feel. Further out of Szentendre you can visit Skanzen another very famous museum with windmills, perfect for the entire family young and old. This outdoor museum exhibits folk living and architecture with real houses, farming tools, tractors, and original clothing and style maintained and preserved from the 18th century. You can even have your family photos taken with traditional folk outfits that represented the traditional and typical way of life. With regular tours and interactive experiences,  life still stands still at Skanzen. Experience the hungarian heritage and step back from modernisation as we know it today.
