Among the many places I can call Home, Gran Canaria is probably the most beautiful. This is one of the seven of Canary Islands, a destination for winter holidays very popular in Europe and almost unknown abroad. Even if Spanish, the archipelago is very close to the border of Africa, right above the Tropic of Cancer. Every year millions of tourists come to the shores of Gran Canaria, especially from northern Europe, thanks to the fantastic climate all year round, warm and dry. Tell the truth, wouldn’t you like to depart from the snow and land on the sand?
The island became a popular destination for honeymoons during the past few years. Couples of newlyweds got here thanks to deluxe cruises, or as the first stop of an endless honeymoon, possibly in Africa. Maspalomas is rich in luxury hotels and resorts, with terraces overlooking the ocean and swimming pools. The lovely lighthouse, the renowned restaurants and the Paseo on the seashore make it ideal for long walks and relax. In 5 minutes walk, you’ll find the dunes, the real attraction of the island, which make Maspalomas a unique destination. Do I need any more reason to organise a styled shoot here? Thanks to a fabulous team, I could make it come true!
The first part of the photographs took place on the beach. The models were at ease, and made the atmosphere funny and relaxed, as they posed in beachwear with their feet in the ocean. The second part took place on the dunes. For the occasion, the model wore the wedding dress.
A heartfelt thanks to all the sellers involved, but a special mention to ilbiancoeilrosa and Gattotigre, who faced a long journey to get here. I hope this photo shoot – and the gorgeous beach! – might repay you for all the efforts.
