I can safely say Joanne and Nebojsa are happy being in front of the camera. They love to have fun with different poses and especially with their facial expressions! I love that they are not shy when it comes to being romantic and affectionate. The possibilities were endless for these portraits on a Croatian Island!!
A week before their wedding in Dubrovnik we explored the island of Mljet for a day. Mljet has been described as one of the most beautiful islands in Croatia. It’s less touristy as half of the island is National Park. There are crystal clear waters at every turn. And unusually, there is a lot of greenery which can be rare for Croatia. Mljet was my favourite place when I visited Croatia for two weeks! I spent a full week there and stayed in a small village.
This fun day included epic Adriatic Sea views, a stroll through an ancient village and then an afternoon at the National Park. We met locals, went swimming and visited a beautiful isolated Monastery. Benedictine Monastery is not to be missed. The donkeys were very happy to smile for my camera! The photos finished by the water with Joanne and Nebojsa mucking around on kid’s play equipment. Needless to say, there was never a dull moment with these two and we all had a lot of fun!
Portraits on a Croatian Island – All the Details
A special thanks to my friend Ulrike for coming along to help with carrying my equipment for these portraits on a Croatian Island. We stayed in the sleepy town of Okuklje. I highly recommend this village with lovely restaurants and quiet places to enjoy a morning swim. We found an amazing AirBnb host called Vera and she looked after us so well. You must order the outdoor oven cooked dinner she offers – it was perfect!
