Paradise. Nothing less than paradise. Sunset Beach on Mahe Island in the Seychelles at well, sunset, of course. The evening before Rachel and Garth’s tropical wedding (more of which to come next). We went looking for a good spot and really every spot along the shores of Mahe is a good spot but I think we struck gold for this golden hour. There were palm trees and white sand lapped by the warm turquoise water, there were granite rocks and a stream cutting across the beach to the sea, there were islands in the distance as the sun set beyond them. And then of course there was that magic ingredient, the love between these two lovely people. It all sounds like a cliché but it was real. I felt like the luckiest photographer ever when I did this shoot. It set the tone for the next day’s celebration.
Perfect couple, perfect place.
