Deserted, quiet, and far from the crowd is the prewedding concept that had been long thought by Michelle. With her fiancee, Jovian, they agreed to look for a location which is in Indonesia, less known and not a beach. Suggested by David, her school's friend, and Kimi and Smith's photographer, they agreed to take pictures in Bintan after seeing the location's photos.
The preparation was indeed not as slightly as it should be since Michelle lived in Jakarta, but Jovian dwelled in Bandung, and they were going to shoot outside Java Island. "The prewedding plan would not be this convenient if I did not have these lovely vendors," Michelle admitted. After David sent her the mood board, she immediately called Veronika Vidyanita to design her dresses, then asked Tonal Studio to arrange bouquets that fit her personality and to fill it with flowers which were able to last on a long journey.
There was a concern regarding the weather since the forecast said it would probably rain. However, good fortune preferred to be with Michelle and Jovian during their three-day photo trip, so they can freely play with various poses and the camera. Blue sky and sand dunes became a dramatic and fantastic background for them to express their loves. An astonishing view did not end there. A big blue lake with contrasting color invited further explorations, especially when they found a deserted wedding arch which would make a great addition to the shoot. Michelle and Jovian also did not miss to show off their romance in a pampas field with a warm and calm natural lighting.
The photoshoot journey went terrific. One of the reasons was the tour guide, Babalovetrip, that has not only successfully shown the team the best photo spots, but also the most-wanted culinary destinations in town. The trip has become not only a quest for the best pictures capturing Michelle and Jovian's love story but also a memorable collective holiday.
"I personally dreamt of an outdoor wedding where my lover and I eloped together. However, what you wished for is sometimes different from the reality," Michelle confessed. Even so, her dream eventually came true into a prewedding photo album which gave her and Jovian unforgettable, enchanting memories.
