Welcome to one of the most exclusive paradise destinations in Punta Cana – Sivory Hotel. Here’s a glimpse at a a lazy romantic afternoon with Marina & Ruslan, an amazing couple simply celebrating togetherness. Having arrived at Sivory, I entered my usual state (at least since I’ve been here in Punta Cana) of anxious excitement – there were only 2 hours of light and I could spend two full days shooting here and sill feel like there’s more. Then these two pulled me in… into the tranquil relaxed flow, into the tender rays of the setting sun, into the lush shade & eternal stillness of their unfolding moments. Seven years of gazing towards horizons together! I adore these guys with all my heart.

At Sivory, romance and intimacy are an artform. I’ll follow up on that shortly with a separate blog post (sivory photo review). For now, here are a few highlights of our intimate portraits session.

Peace… quiet… not a soul in sight…

One of my personal favourites.

    Katya …
    As always, I am amazed with your talent in bringing out the personality and mood in your photos. Once again, I am so jealous of your work … that is one talent I really wish I had.
    As always,
    Dani Ardron

    That b&w of Marina kissing Ruslan on the nose is simply gorgeous. So natural, so real, I like.
