Elyse is a modern French woman who loves urban life and fashion. For a few years she has lived in the USA where she met her fiancé Jonathan. They decided to have a quiet destination wedding on Bora Bora. Elyse asked me for something quite unconventional – a portrait session before the wedding. She planned to spend a few days on her own on the Polynesian islands before her Big Day. She desired to have a little glamour and time only for herself at such a special occasion. I was excited about this extraordinary idea of a casual photo session and strove to capture this absolutely private feminine microcosm. We had a shooting on Tahiti and Bora Bora. Fabulously tranquil Polynesian nature sparkled with a tinge of classic white, black, red and gold. I was amazed with how Elyse, surrounded by crystal clear blue, shone with bright colors of her electric soul.
