Lake Achensee, sometimes called “The Fjord of the Alps” is the largest lake in the Austrian state of Tyrol, and also the deepest at over 100 meters deep. It’s probably also one of the coldest, as you’ll find out if you’re ever been tempted to take a paddle in the clear shallow waters along the shore line.
Melanie was born here in Tyrol, but moved to the USA almost 20 years ago, where she met the gorgeous Jesse. Even though they have built a life together in Oklahoma with their two gorgeous dogs Sadie and Axel, Melanie has always dreamt of getting married in the mountains in Austria.
After a rather stressful journey and an unexpected last minute trip to get a passport renewed, they finally made it to Austria. Although their main reason for visiting was to visit family and start wedding planning, Melanie & Jesse wanted to have some engagement pictures that captured this exciting time for them that also showed their friends and family back in the USA the beauty of the area.
During our time together up at the Achensee, we were treated to some stunning evening light as the golden sun started to sink behind the mountains. Although I’m not sure Melanie and Jesse were able to enjoy the scenery that much, as from where I was standing, it was each other that they couldn’t take their eyes off!
