One the day Yanna called me and said she needed to talk to me personally about a photo shoot. I remember my “I don´t believe face” as if it were yesterday, when she told me that the session would be in The Maldives and Singapore.
After the excitement I started to get nervous, since I have a very busy schedule here in Brazil due to the weddings. So I asked Yanna about the date and she made my day when I realized that I was available for those dates to travel to The Maldives!
We started planing everything. Tarcisio is super organized, he set everything up in order to make the trip a success. He booked hotels, bought the tickets, planned the schedule, etc…
Getting there was kind of a tiring task, it was a 46-hours trip from Fortaleza with stops in Sao Paulo, Dubai, Singapore and Male followed by a speed-boat ride to the Anantara Veli Maldives Resort, where we stayed for 3 outstanding days enjoying and photographing the location.
On the first day we scouted out the best spots for the sessions and the elopement that we were planning, and also I did a small session to gain their trust and to make them more comfortable with me and the camera.
On the second day Yanna put on her dress. She got ready in their room and Tarcisio got dressed in my room, since they wanted to do a first look before the wedding.
Tarcisio, being smart guy, prepared a surprise video that Mara showed to Yanna right after she finished getting dressed. Even Mara and I were touched by her excitement and joy while watching the video of the song you’re going to listen to if you push the play button below. So cute!
After that, they had the first look and headed to the Elopement location and now I’m going to let the pictures finish this story…
Ah, if you’d like me to shoot your wedding in The Maldives or wherever you want, please get in touch here!
Listen to some music…
