My first shooting of the year was a daydream: I had the opportunity to photograph Diana and Bo, an adorable and incredibly photogenic couple. This is how it happened.
Diana wanted pictures of her, her fiancé and all their animals.
So we quickly agreed to an appointment in early January at home.
A week before, we organized everything and I helped Diana to choose the most photogenic clothes (and accessories) of their wardrobes. Do not forget that we were at the beginning of January : so it was not so obvious to leave coats, big jumpers, etc. aside. Also, I wanted to see some skin because nothing is more beautiful in photo! ☺
However, we managed it like queens (and had a lot o fun). Diana really made my job easier thanks to her determination, efficiency and really good taste.
Everything was ready and organized. I only had to meet the real McCoy.
What was my surprise to discover that they lived in a little corner of paradise, in the heart of Morna Valley, Ibiza. Their view of the campo was breathtaking, their house very pretty, full of charm and especially full of animals: seven dogs and three cats please!
Indeed, in addition of being at the head of a successful holiday rental business (Great Villas Ibiza), to be so nice looking and a super nice couple, these two are both volunteers at Mojis Animal Santuary … and I imagine there was so much room in their hearts that over time they decided to adopt and expand their families. Love has no limit as they say. I find it beautiful and inspiring.
So, it is with great pleasure that I finally met this original couple with a big heart.
Diana is a subtle mix between “your best friend”, a lady boss and a slavic princess (she is Polish). She is really cool, I am serious : go and take a look at her blog and you will understand what I mean.
Bo is meanwhile super nice, friendly, the kind of guy who make you fell immediately confortable with (he is Scottish, which may explain that…). He is also a juicing specialist who has lost a lot of weight thanks to this technique. Wanting to share his knowledge and experience, he also organizes some workshops on Ibiza. Do not hesitate to contact him on this subject, he will love to help you. ☺ He is really passionate.
The shooting started. It was really perfect, it was warm outside (15 degrees) and the light was soft. I have guided them obviously (I still have some poses in mind before arriving depending on the location, the number of people, etc.) but I especially let the magic operates. Their complicity and their love were obvious, radiant. A real pleasure to photograph. Especially as they were both very comfortable in front of my camera. I think we can say that we had fun all three. I also keep a special memory of their cats, totally awesome who wanted absolutely to be part of the adventure!
I really enjoyed to meet them and to spend time with them to immortalize this magic.
This shoot leaves me with the impression of a daydream. A daydream from the beginning to the end.
Here few photographs, I hope you will like them.
