melanie & florian. juanillo beach, cap cana {beloved intimate portraits}

January 23, 2012

All the way from Aarau, Switzerland, we bring you Melanie & Florian. We met them during the only touristic excursion we’ve ever done here on the island, a day trip to Saona Island… and it didn’t take long for them to get excited about an Intimate Portraits session in paradise with us. We brought them to Juanillo Beach in Cap Cana, one of our favourite places to hang out and shoot.

As always, we wanted to capture the essence of our couple in the most natural and unique way. Of course that’s easier to say than do, so here are a few ‘vehicles’ we find useful:

– music, rum, finger food, polaroids 🙂

Melanie & Florian, can’t wait to catch up with you in Europe! 

Chinola is passion fruit juice… So good! 

The beach is always a fabulous backdrop, but I love finding unique textures and light.

One of my favourites – soft late afternoon light & a little reflector bounce on the side.

Perfect gust of wind in Melanie’s gorgeous locks and Rob with a little Sunbounce reflector action! 

More Rob behind the scenes!
