I was happy and excited when Lidiya emailed me from Russian about taking her Wedding Portraits with Igor in Perhentian Island. Not just portraits but also photos of a small ceremony they were going to have with a couple of family and friends. After agreeing on all the details i waited impatiently for the day to come.
Meeting Lidiya and Igor in Perhentian, my wife (who came along as my assistant and working holiday buddy!) and I found that they were both such lovely and friendly people. They were also so madly in love with each other.
Shooting in Perhentian is trying and testing. Firstly the immense heat drains all power from you and sweat becomes a big issue especially as we didn’t want Lidiya and Igor to look drenched. At 5pm it can still be scorching hot so we tried our best to get the shots fast and then run back in the shade. The ultra fine sand Perhentian beaches are made of also is a major equipment hazzard.
However, we pulled thru and managed to get some nice, natural, emotional shots and i’m so grateful for the experience and trust Lidiya and Igor put in me. Thanks guys, it was great. I also managed to learn so much myself and cant wait to shoot there again!
Isn’t Lidiya beautiful and Igor too is a very dashing guy.
