        3/ Time & Light

        The light is very different depending on the time of the day. To get a soft and beautiful light the best is to shoot just after the sunrise or just before the sunset. Sunsets are often sensational here so it’s a great time to shoot BUT be aware that the water won’t look that blue (but golden or pink depending on the colours of the sunset of the day). If you wish to get vibrant blue for your pictures the best is to shoot on the morning between 9AM & 11AM. It’s better to avoid shooting in the middle of the afternoon: the light is way too harsh and the best photo spots are usually busy.

        4/ Outfits

        Number of outfits: You can pick up to two outfits for sessions of 2H and more.

        • If you are going to wear your wedding gowns: Please get dressed before the photoshoot as some dresses can take forever to pull on 😉

        • If you are not going to wear your wedding gowns: Choose outfits you are comfortable in and feel beautiful wearing them (and try to match colours). For ladies, we advise long and aerial dresses and chic summer clothing for men (like linen shirt and trousers). Please try to avoid printed fabric or flashy colours (as it won’t be a great fit with our editing style and the Polynesian nature’s colours).
