Bali Pre Wedding Photoshoot
This is a series captured in Bali, a pre wedding photoshoot that we did for Marcus & Jean. To be honest this photoshoot session was quite a random one as we have intended to go Bali for a holiday on our own. Since we are going to be there, we actually posted up on our instagram story that we would be there and just in case if anyone wants we could have a portrait session done for them here in Bali. And just like that Marcus & Jean contacted us and the Bali pre wedding photoshoot happened!
As we were planning on the locations in Bali, we decided to do something quite special which was to catch the sun rise from the top of Mount Batur. Now as amazing as it sounds there were some sacrifices as we had to depart very early in the morning. We left our hotels at 3am! Yes it was super early, as the travel distance to Mount Batur takes about 2-2.5 hours. Luckily we did not have to do any hiking as we could drive all the way up to our shoot location. The journey there was interesting as well, we had to battle through the morning market farmers, go through some pitch dark terrains and at one point we even got lost a little.
When we finally arrived at Mount Batur shoot location, it was still very dark. And honestly we did not expect it to be that cold! It was about 5 degrees celsius and really it was cold as we did not anticipate it being that cold. But its okay, we still proceeded and the view as the sun rises was totally worth all the effort and sacrifice!
As soon as the sun rises the warmth of the sun immediately can be felt. It was such an amazing view and a spectacular experience for all of us. In the photos you could also see Mount Agung in the background actively erupting with clouds of smoke coming out from the volcano.
As we wrapped up the shoot in Mount Batur, we proceeded to the Tegenungan waterfall. Love the waterfall and it was quite high and slippery. To be honest we got to give props to those people that are so brave to sit on the edge of the rocks just for the an instagram photo.After Tegenungan waterfall we went back to our Villa in Canggu, rested. Before capturing more portraits in the beach just to catch the sun set which is really pretty and beautiful.
All in all, Bali is simply beautiful. We cannot stress it enough and we simply love this place. Can’t wait for our next trip! Write to us if you are keen to go!
Meanwhile, here are some of the captures that day…
