I’m a full-time wedding photographer and filmmaker, and in this article I will tell you why you might want to keep your destination simple yet beautiful.
After attending over 25 weddings in 2019 I can say that I have been in places, in many places for taking photos, recording love stories.
Sarajevo is the city where East and West meets, it’s quite easy to notice that while walking in the streets, buildings, bridges.
In the centre of the city, there are many locations to enjoy, people to ignore, I often take my couples to the city where they can see other people, them rushing, working, gives them the feeling of something else, this time they are here for something else, not for a coffee, not for shopping. To make memories.
After the streets of the city, what is better than having a break with breathtaking view of the capital. A place called “Zuta Tabija-Yellow Fortress”, is the all-time-favorite place of couples. Just two of you, feeling the sun together with beautiful sunset.
If you do not like the crowd, see less buildings but more nature " Trebevic” is nothing less than another beautiful location you can stop by.
Before heading to nature, there are couple of places we have to visit for astonishing interior photos. Speaking of interiors, place called “Vijećnica” former library, currently a museum, hosting events, is one of the famous buildings in the world.
Let’s jump into another location, this time instead of history and culture, nature will be what we are seeking for.Place 8km away from the city center, called “Vrelo Bosne” is no doubt favorite locations for tourists, couples, families who are looking a calm place to rest, enjoy their vacation or weekend, away from the city.
I have listed some of my favorite places to visit and make photos as a couple in Sarajevo, now it’s your turn to find your favorites:)
