I met Katty many years back and I always remembered her as an avid wake-boarder. So, it came as no surprise when she picked the deep blue waters of Maldives as her destination for a pre-wedding shoot. The experience at the Four Seasons at Laanda Giraavaru was simply exemplary right from the moment we set foot on the resort. On this note, I’ll like to take this opportunity to thank the wonderful folks at Four Seasons Landaa Giraavaru who really went out of the way and made the most difficult things possible for us. It wasn’t the best season for photography, but when it mattered, the sun came out shining for us even it was just for a few minutes. That’s all we needed.
This shot was interesting as we wanted to take a shot together with the sea plane which was our only mode of transport to the resort. Little did I expect Robert & Katty to run to the plane the way they did. I had some catching up to do and this was the best shot I got. I love getting caught by surprise.
This is possibly one of my most favourite shot from the entire series. I love the blurriness and the sense of motion mostly from the rocking launch boat we were on. Taken with the Canon G1X with underwater housing
I remember the morning feeling particularly dreadful. Robert and myself were so worried about the dark skies and the rain the night before. My wife, Justine who was with me throughout the shoot first noticed the glimpse of sunrise peeking out behind us. We got the (boat) launch team to turn around and we had a matter of minutes to capture this shot. Feeling was absolutely priceless
This was one of my favourite shots taken on the black & white Ilford Delta 100. Robert & Katty were moving into position and I love that impromptu moment as it happened, something I love capturing during pre-wedding sessions
