Engagement in Mallorca
Anna and Pasca
l wished for a special engagement photography session. . Because they had anyways planned a summer holiday in Mallorca, it was an ideal time to do the engagement photo shoot at the same time. Mallorca has many spectacular landscapes. The mountains were especially fascinating for us to use as a setting. Anna and Pascal were open to many ideas and immediately said yes when we proposed to have the photo shoot at sunrise in the mountains.
The early bird
Due to the fact that the sun is an early bird in July, a 4am alarm got us up and moving very early. A little bit tired, but full of excitement, we drove through the darkness towards Cap de Formentor. During the day, Cap de Formentor is a popular tourist attraction, but shortly before sunrise it was quiet and peaceful . The only other human soul who was up at the Cap so early , was a landscape photographer… who else ?
Such a stunning sunrise creates a very special mood, This was especially true in the summer, when everybody was still sleeping and only the birds and animals were slowly waking up. There is something magical when the day is slowly starting and you don’t know yet what it will bring. It is exactly this mood which shows up in the pictures of Anna and Pascal. The intimacy of the photo shoot made everyone believe the couple owned the sunrise, the cliffs and the ocean for themselves. . When the sun finally broke through the clouds and the landscape was bathed in orangeand red , we were able to capture the perfect moment.
