George and Shamiram Konsul are newlyweds from Germany are on they’re honeymoon in Aruba and just happened to see me holding my camera.
My friend Javin and I were in Aruba for a few days shooting a wedding at the Riu Paradise Resort. The wedding was spread throughout the hotel so we had been seen by a lot of the visitors staying there.
The day after the wedding Javin and I were walking around shooting the beauty of Aruba in hotel and George approached us and asked “are you the guys from yesterday’s wedding?”. He proceeded to ask for a quick half-hour shoot and I couldn’t me more happy to say yes. He then introduced me to his wife Shamirama and we scheduled a quick shoot for the next morning.
Everywhere in Aruba is such a beautiful background for portraits!
Here is the look of a man who knows that marrying the one he loves was the best decision he has ever made in his life!
While we were shooting I wanted to be done with the traditional portraits and move to something more genuine. I told them to give me a forehead touch and told George to say something funny in Shamiram’s ear. Pure laughter poured from the newlyweds as I captured some fantastic shots.
