I was asked by Paige if I would consider shooting their pre-wedding photoshoot in Maldives… Hell YES! I said.. This wasn’t even about the money to me. It was about the experience. It would be really difficult to resist such as offer, wouldn’t it? So, after a couple of meetups to discuss the planning and shoot itinerary, we finally got on the plane and flew 9 hours to the tropical island of Maldives.
Arrial at Meeru Island resortFerry’s the main form of transport around Maldives’ many islandsYes, a football field – I couldnt believe my eyes too. It also hosts the Resort Staff vs Guests XI matchesA juvenile black tip shark (I presume) – they’re everywhere in the waters
During the trip, I found out that Zhihua is also a fellow Arsenal fan and we clicked immediately, which was good. Especially in the evenings facing the sea and chatting with beer bottles in hand. We spent the first day touring and shooting around Male capital and the 2nd day, a full day shoot at Meeru island itself.
