The city of Speyer was all around perfect for this session with Evan and Rachel! I love how the cathedral is the backdrop in almost all of the pictures, and the Christmas market illuminates the square and casts such a romantic feeling. We initially started our afternoon taking some shots at the cathedral, as the sun was in it’s golden hour. We caught the last few rays in that location! We moved about 100m south of the cathedral to walk parallel to the Christmas market, and patiently awaited for ALL the lights to come on. The plan worked out beautifully! My creative heart was very full at this point. To close out the evening, we were all starving, so we helped ourselves to some warm and yummy Glühwein (mulled wine) and Kartoffelpuffer (fried potato pancake – way better than average American style potato pancake, typically served with apple sauce for dipping).
