Few things are as romantic as a seaside date, and this pre-wedding photoshoot on a beach in the Maldives by thegaleria's Brian Ho depicts a joyous, carefree day with that special someone splendidly. Bride-to-be Katty loves wakeboarding, so choosing to have their engagement photos by the azure blue ocean made total sense – both Robert and Katty look incredibly happy and in their element. Despite being up against overcast skies, Brian managed to capture a glimpse of the sun's rays when it shone for just a few minutes, and the otherwise cloudy expanse gives the whole series a zen-like quality.


A word from the photographer:
"This would be my maiden trip to the Maldives and I couldn't have asked for a more bubbly couple than Robert and Katty. They were a ball of fun to work with, always spontaneous and never a dull moment. This wasn't the best season to be at the Maldives as it was the monsoon. It rained a couple of times and it got us a little worried but when it mattered most, the sun came out shining for us."
