Best Friends-Turned-Lovers’ Perfect Bali Pre-Wedding Shoot With Picturesque Scenery And Great Company
Shawn and Caryn were best friends before becoming lovers, going a big round only to get together eventually, though they share that “that’s a good thing because we would know all that we need to know about the other party, including secrets!”.
"Shawn is almost the total opposite of me so we compliment each other with a balance!"
On what they love most about their partner, Caryn sincerely shares that “I love the fact that Shawn is almost the total opposite of me so we compliment each other with a balance! He's that cool and composed guy, whereas I am always the more anxious and eager one. So for example, when it comes to problem solving, I'm always overwhelmed with emotions and jumping straight into conclusions whereas he'll be calmly thinking before reacting. But now I learn!”
Shawn simply says, “her sexy butt!”.
Shawn and Caryn love Bali and because Bali is like Shawn’s second home, they’ve chosen to hold their wedding there and thought that having their pre-wedding photoshoot in Bali too would be perfect. So, they Googled and found OneThreeOneFour, deciding to book photographers Ivony and Bayu of Bali Pixtura on the site.
The first location for Shawn and Caryn’s shoot was at the Pan Pacific Nirwana Bali -- their wedding venue! Unfortunately, it will be ceasing operations end July 2017 as “Mr Trump bought over the land”. Our couple share that “we really loved the place. The clifftop view overlooking the Indian Ocean, the ambience, the feeling when you are there, and just everything!”
"the weather was kind to us and we even had cotton candy skies!"
Shawn and Caryn then headed to Melasti beach and cliff that Bayu and Ivony recommended. Our couple loved their recommendation, as “it was so beautiful” and “we were also very lucky that the weather was kind to us and we even had cotton candy skies!”
"Ivony and Bayu were amazing."
Shawn and Caryn share that “Ivony and Bayu were amazing. They were professional yet helpful and friendly, to the point that we felt so comfortable with them as though we have been friends for awhile! Definitely made the whole experience an even better one. Not forgetting the awesome photos!”.
Ivony and Bayu also had nothing but good things to say about our couple: “It was fun capturing Shawn and Caryn’s pre-wedding photos in Bali! They are so easy to work with and very comfortable in front of the camera. We quickly bonded with them!”
Despite the picture-perfect shots, the photoshoot wasn’t rosy from the start. According to Ivony and Bayu, “Caryn was not feeling well at the beginning of the photoshoot at the Pan Pacific. She had a stomach ache and threw up in the toilet so we were so concerned about her and thinking about postponing the photoshoot to the next day before they leave Bali. Regardless, Caryn and Shawn decided to continue on and she felt much better on the second location! Sunset was perfect and we really think we are lucky to keep continuing the photoshoot.”
"OneThreeOneFour definitely did help make things easier for us"
Shawn and Caryn share that “we really have to say that OneThreeOneFour definitely did help make things easier for us” while Ivony and Bayu share that “OneThreeOneFour make overseas booking so easy. Clients find us easily on their website and they know what they expect from our portfolios and how much they’ll spend from the beginning.”
