Story

This image was taken during a road trip through Morocco. It was our very first trip to this amazing country and we decided to travel together with our dear friends. So starting in Marrakech we passed Desert d Agafai, crossed the Atlas Mountains, and made it all the way to the impressive dunes of Merzouga. After a few days spent in a Berber camp in Merzouga with unforgettable memories, we were heading back towards Marrakech. The sun was about to set and we went off-road to the top of a hill in order to watch the sunset. We were literally standing in the middle of nowhere watching the sunset behind the Atlas Mountains. The sky was crystal clear as we’ve only experienced it in the desert. Once the sun has set, this amazing skylight hits them right from the front. It was actually not our intention to do a proper photoshoot but we just could not resist doing a few snaps. We are still blown away by this beautiful lighting and we will always connect these images with all the amazing memories we’ve made in the Moroccan outback.

“Fabsi could you stand behind Denis and hang around his shoulder.. maybe put your hand on his chest while you both look towards the mountains where the sun has set. Take a deep breath and enjoy the moment.”

Hey y’all, good to have you here! We are a husband and wife photographer team focused on wedding photography. The last few years have been an incredible ride and we were able to travel all around the globe doing what we love the most – shooting weddings! We found our happy place on the Balearic Island Mallorca where we restored an old house. There are so many good stories and experiences we’ve made and we’re happy to share some of them with you over here! Cheers Chris and Ruth
