“Upon arriving you overlook this bay that looks like a creek with its small beach huts. On the beach, you can take a left and walk a bit to have a beautiful view of the beach from the sea. It is indeed a beautiful beach with a really beautiful water colour, a real mix of blue, turquoise and darker colours.”

“It is in complete privacy that they decided to make their elopement pictures in a private place. The beach of Mala has this little wild side still preserved in the image our their couple. Fiery and free.”

“Eva tells us very poetically how they fall in love. It was an afternoon with an advanced spring taste. He took me for our first date for coffee. We were both very nervous. We left each other with a smile. Then, for the second date, after soaking my lips in a glass of wine, we went to sit on the beach. The sky was blue and the wind helped us get closer. I felt his arm slip behind my back.”

“As for the fear that this moment does not stop I remained motionless. We were lying beside each other looking at the clouds. I turned my head to look at him and he kissed me. Our jackets were bleached by the pebbles, our hair tangled by the salty wind, and our hearts overflowed with love. Since then, we did not leave each other anymore.”
