It’s every couple’s fantasy to travel to their favourite destination for a spectacular trip and amazing photos. Whether it’s a destination wedding, a destination engagement or a fantasy honeymoon, the photos can be truly exquisite and are definitely keepsakes you’ll treasure forever.
Bali – also known as “Paradise Island” – is exactly that kind of place and makes for a fabulous destination engagement shoot. The island is so outstanding, it feels almost like living on a tropical beach everywhere you go. With its clear waters and gorgeous nature tide pools, there’s so many perfect spots for a photoshoot that it’s actually hard to choose! But, of course, there’s more to Bali than natural beauty alone… It offers world-class surfing, radiates spirituality and charm, and offers a lush and peaceful setting that makes for a slow and relaxing vacation-like pace that’s one of a kind.
There’s really nothing quite like the astounding beauty of a tropical paradise like Bali. But combining it with a couple madly in love and excited to be getting married? Then the photos are more than just breathtaking – they’re priceless.
In February I had the pleasure of traveling to Bali for an engagement photoshoot with Dima & Margo, two wonderfully warm and spirited people. Lucky for them, this beautiful couple has lived in Bali for a few years and understandably have fallen in love with the beauty and culture and now can’t imagine themselves ever living anywhere else. And why would they want to? They live in a sweet little villa near Jimbaran beach – one of the best surfing spots in Bali – with their two Labrador pups and get to spend their days in the sunshine and fresh air enjoying all that life has to offer.
Dmitry owns a popular surfing school and Margo is a jewelry designer. They make a delightful couple and made it so easy for me to capture their relaxed and joyful day together against the incredible ocean backdrop. I wish them all the best in their marriage and life together and thank them both for the opportunity to share these special moments and incredible paradise with them for a day.
