"That's too weird! How did the bride in her wedding dress get on the rock?" This is probably one of the questions I am asked most frequently, and my answer is: "It depends!" 😉
"Did you conjure the bride on the rock with Photoshop?" For heaven's sake - no! I don't do such "tricks". If there is something really disturbing in the picture, I can retouch it (e.g. a garbage can) - but "put the bridal couple somewhere" where it wasn't - no. Even if it's possible: I don't do such things on principle!
Some rocks are quite easy to climb - even if it doesn't look like it on some photos, but on other rocks it is a small to medium "drudgery" to get to the top.
the rocks, which are very easy to climb, can usually be climbed in full wedding gear. of course i will go ahead and show you the way. of course i will always be there with a helping hand! i will also gladly take care of your "luggage" so that you can concentrate on yourself.
if i can't meet "my" wedding couples personally in my german homeland in north rhine-westphalia in advance, the personal meeting takes place a few days before the wedding in the seychelles. we meet on site (usually for a joint dinner), then we talk together about everything that interests you and i will answer all your questions. after more than 100 weddings that i have photographed in the seychelles so far (and additionally about 350 other weddings within europe), i know that this can sometimes be quite a lot of questions. but go ahead! i am quasi "the walking seychelles wedding encyclopedia" and will be happy to answer your questions!
When you have received all the answers you want from me, my questions will come to you, asking you, for example, how "kletterfit" you feel and whether you might be able to find answers under Fear of heights At some few photo spots you have to walk over a narrow crevice in the rock to reach your destination. If this is not for you, the "Photoman Rock" This may be a pity, but it's not the end of the world - La Digue (and almost every other island) has so many great photo spots to offer that we then head for a "cozier" alternative.
But back to the dress: If you feel fit enough for the "FOTOMANN skirt" just mentioned, this means that you should pack your wedding dress in a sufficiently large bag. Do you know these large, blue and yellow shoulder bags of the multinational furnishing group founded in Sweden in 1943 by Ingvar Kamprad? I don't want to mention the four letters of the company name here, so as not to advertise... 😉
In any case, these shoulder bags are perfectly suited to store many things in, and it is also ideal if you have a Wedding dress cover Of course, it is a little awkward to walk through the jungle with the wedding dress cover and a shoulder bag - but without diligence there is no prize and therefore no mega-exceptional wedding photos of the Seychelles where you stand on the bizarrely shaped granite rocks! 🙂
