Citra & Johan – Elopement Photographer Bali / Indonesia
What an end of the year!
In December 2017, I traveled a long way to Bali, the fabulous Indonesian island, to accompany two enamored locals on an Elopement Shoot. Citra is a make-up artist and works in Bali and Jakarta. Johan is self-employed in the field of media design and social media and also lives in Bali.
They travel a lot and have visited Europe several times. Therefore, both are absolutely cosmopolitan and easygoing people and speak – like almost all Balinese – absolutely great English. After arriving in Bali, we first met for a cocktail to chat about God and the world, but also about our plans a few days later.
Then the right time came, we took a car and drove to the southeast of the island. It was their dream location in Bali, and that is exactly where their memories should last for eternity. On this day we were really lucky with the weather. Although rainy season prevailed in Bali, the sun shone almost throughout the day. Best conditions for our little adventure.
Light breezes, beautiful cliffs, a bit of greenery, beaches and, accordingly, the wonderful sea, were the perfect backdrop for documenting their love for each other. Who knows, maybe I can become her wedding photographer in Bali in 2018 ?! Anyway, we had a lot of fun in an absolutely informal and relaxed atmosphere …
