If you have been married for over year, you would know what I mean when I say that marriage is kind of like living on your own little island. When I left my family to be united with the woman I love, it kind of felt like we just sailed off into the vast ocean in search for a place to call our own, where we could build a home and started our own little clan. Sometimes being on the island is filled with worry, wondering if anyone would come and rescue us when the waves come rolling in, only to learn soon enough that the island is a peaceful and quiet shelter from the restless tides. But on the brighter days when the sun is shining strongly in the clear blue skies, the island is a relaxing haven away from the stresses of daily life, where we can explore the adventures that are waiting to be discovered. The island can be whatever we want it to be, as long as we work hard to make it the nice place it is intended to be. That way, my wife and I never felt like castaways even though we have been adrift for so long. We have actually found ourselves a home.
Alright! That’s enough figuratively speaking for one day. Moving on to Christian and Melvina… this is a shoot that I absolutely loved! I love the concept, I love the colours, I love the place and I love this couple! Shooting two people in love is a wonderful experience… but shooting for two people in love in a beautiful place? That experience was nothing short of awesome! Christian and Melvina are two beach lovers with the heart for the ocean and to capture their love under the clear blue sky in the midst of the vast ocean is what simply perfect looks like!
Congratulations Christian and Melvina! Here’s to a peaceful life on your own little island called marriage!
