On my just finished 23rd trip to the Seychelles I have accompanied 15 wedding couples - 14 couples on La Digue and one on Praslin. Next year, besides a lot of La Digue, there will be weddings on Mahé, on Praslin and on Silhouette to photograph - but this year my favourite island La Digue was, as almost always, on the top of the wish list of most wedding couples.
once again i have discovered great new photo spots. i simply don't run out of motifs on the dream island - which is a good thing, because after all i have been following my motto for many years that i want to create some completely new motifs with each couple. so later on each couple can hang an absolutely "photomaniacal unique" on their wall! 🙂
Bernd and Birgit from the beautiful Ammersee in the Upper Bavarian district of Starnberg, for example, were the first people I photographed with at "Sea Turtle Rock". I usually give my new photo spots a name directly. This rock, for example, has - when you stand a little deeper - the clearly recognizable shape of a sea turtle.
i brought back soooo many great pictures from this trip again, that it would be a shame not to present you at least a selection of them regularly in the blog. but it's more than questionable if i'll be able to do this in time. most of the 15 couples now want a hand-bound wedding book - and that's what's going on for now. and the daily requests of couples who want to get married in the seychelles naturally want to be answered promptly.
Furthermore, the next television shoot in the Seychelles is already scheduled in a few months! the next channel has asked if I would like to become the "Seychelles expert" for a 45-minute documentary, which will be broadcast in 2018. My work as a wedding photographer in the Seychelles is to be extensively illuminated and I am to "guide" a little through the programme. And since I am naturally interested again, I will certainly not be bored in 2018. The first two "Seychelles honeymoons" are already scheduled for 2019... 🙂
