Forest Engagement Session in Hannover, Germany

When looking for locations for your engagement or couple’s session some prefer the more urban feel while others like the vibrant greens of a forest. If you like a bit of both then the Altwarmbüchener See and it’s surrounding forest offers something beautiful that is reminiscent of the scenery in Grimm’s Fairy tales or lounging on a beach.

When you first enter the forest from the side of the sailing club there is a beautiful beach on the left that gives you a more urban feel in your portraits with the bluish green of the lake in the background.  Occasionally there are also sailboats on the water that can lend additional color to the backdrop of the images.

If you chose to take the right from the sailing club it leads you to a corridor of birch trees that line both sides of the path. In the afternoon sunlight streams through the tree basking everything in a soft golden hue. This photo was taken in the later afternoon on the birch tree path.

Walking further, along the birch tree corridor one gets to more subtle scenery with fields and flowerbeds. Here the sunlight is more vivid, making everything multihued. This might be a great place to take bridal party portraits because the shades of the flora and fauna provide a large natural flower canvas. 

Location: Altwarmbüchener See, Pappelweg 10, 30916 Isernhagen.
