Hazal and Eran came to me with a love burning in their hearts. Soon to be married, the couple was excited for their engagement photoshoot. Both of them are the most brilliant, fun-loving individuals I've had the pleasure of meeting. The way Hazal's smile lights up a room and the look in Eran's eyes when she gazes in his direction... It's pure romance!
Kapras Peninsula in North Cyprus is home to a beautiful long stretch of beaches called the Golden Beach. It is here that we decided to do the photoshoot. Eran chose a light and airy sundress with an impossibly adorable floppy hat that enhanced her cuteness even more. I caught Hazal stealing several long glances at her as we made our way over the soft sands on one of the beaches.
The couple posed effortlessly in the evening sun, simply content to be in each other's arms. Their warm smiles and the glow of their skin was enough to make the sun itself jealous! Don't you just love Eran's sunglasses? So cute! One of my favorite photos of them is where Eran covers Hazal's face to steal a kiss. Such a shy gesture was a bit out of character for them, as they let their love show freely whether in public or in private, but it was too sweet for me to leave out.
When Eran changed into her green dress they bought together on one of their trips, wow! It's no wonder Hazal fell for her – she's stunning! She was like a goddess of the old times walking the Cyprus beaches once again, hair flowing long behind her as the orange rays of the sun kissed her skin. All she needed was a seashell necklace to complete the picture.
Too soon, the day was over. While the last rays of sunshine warmed our bodies, we dug our feet into the sand and sat down to rest. Long into the night, we talked, and Hazal and Eran shared the story of how they met. I was enchanted. The moon kept us company as we sat on blankets, listening to salsa music (the bride and I both looove salsa!) as we ate fruits used in the photoshoot. As I took the long two and a half hour drive back to civilization, the story of Hazal and Eran's love kept my heart burning in my chest. That night, I dreamt of all the good things that were going to come their way.
Keep your love shine,
