Maria and Denis arrived on green island Sri-Lanka in March when in their native Belorussia was still cold. Travel into a summer was not a usual vacation… They prepared all details for their amazing wedding on the beach. The morning began creatively – the groom had to go through a quest in order to spell out a frog into a beautiful bride. All the accessories and even the most important thing – the dress – Maria made with their own hands with the help of talented friends! The ceremony was made on a beach in Dickwella village with arch full of local flowers… We invited a monarch to make a “fake” ceremony in Sri-Lankan traditional style. After that we decorate a local transport tuk-tuk (something between car and motorbike) and went for a wedding photo shoot. We came back after sunset for a dinner by the fire, local drummers invite us to dance with them and we had a real fun until midnight until the strong storm had started … Great day, great memories… Continue reading
This morning I woke up in the western region of Croatia – Istria – a peaceful places and a clean blue sea…I had only 2 days to explore Rovinj and Pula.

There is always somebody who is ready to help you to find a right street to your hotel. Continue reading
The fact that I’m going to photograph the traditional wedding in Croatia on June 8, I knew before the New Year. It was definitely enjoyable and exciting experience for me. The most interesting was to see traditions in plan of the wedding day, in food, in attention to every guest (and they had 250 people at the celebration), in party till the morning when all guests are dancing in the circle! And it was a great possibility to practice my English – that was only one way to communicate with the couple and their family because I didn’t speak Croatian and they, of course, don’t know Russian .
I think pregnant women exude some magical light from inside Happiness… They see every day how their body is changing and growing a new life inside … They can communicate with the kid just with touch to belly and they can get answers … This sunset photo session was dedicated to a beautiful Maria, who become a young mother next day!
