Bora Bora honeymoon photographer

As a photographer working in Bora Bora and all the Polynesian islands, it is a pleasure to share some general information and little tips with you to make your photo shoot as suited to your needs and wishes, and as unique, as possible. 
Preparing everything for your honeymoon trip to Bora Bora is almost as exciting as being there! This special sensation which precedes your stay in one of the most extraordinary places in the world, the cradle of everything we call “paradise”, is often the expression of our most precious dreams.

It is always a real pleasure to plan your stay in French Polynesia: from simple things like planning your boat trip and nautical activities, booking your hotel and choosing the best overwater bungalow, to finally looking for a photo shoot to immortalize the magical time of your honeymoon. 


Your resort is one of the best locations for a honeymoon photo shoot in Bora Bora


Honeymooners often wonder where they can get epic photos in Bora Bora. They ask to leave the resort to reach the best spots. But in reality, there is no better spot that inside their resort...What does that mean?

Bora Bora is a very particular island. The best hotels are not located on the main island, but on smaller patches of land surrounding it, separated by azure blue strips of ocean: The St. Regis Bora Bora, Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora, Intercontinental Thalasso and Spa, Conrad Bora Bora Nui, The Pearl Beach Resort…. These hotels obviously offer the best view, a beautiful lagoon, amazing gardens, and the best accommodation (overwater villas / overwater bungalows). 

So, if you are going to stay in one of those excellent resorts, be assured that you will certainly be able to get some beautiful pictures there!

The once in a lifetime adventure. Classic and Drone Photography


Bora Bora is a truly exceptional place: A small piece of paradise, in the middle of nowhere, and far from everything. Often, we visit it only once in our lives. And even if we come more than once, each time in this place is like a once-in-a-lifetime adventure!

We encourage you to take time to do a photo shoot in Bora Bora. The pictures will always remain with you of your stay in this place. If you are planning to go to Bora Bora, do not forget to book a photo shoot. A classic shoot in your resort is always a good idea to create some beautiful memories and pictures!

If you wish to have an incredible memento from Bora Bora, we encourage you to plan a complete photo trip: classic and drone photography. Sometimes this combination is possible in your resort (with an authorization), sometimes it is better to take a boat and go to some secluded spots. Please connect with us to get more information.

The best time for a honeymoon photo shoot in Bora Bora


Bora Bora is especially sensitive to the light and the timing of your shoot will be crucial to creating the expected results, as well as determining colors and the global mood on your pictures. For example, mornings sessions offer vibrant and colorful pictures while sunset ones are more romantic, with luminous and soft colors. Please connect with us to get more information.

The perfect duration of your shoot


Perhaps you wonder how long your photo session in Bora Bora should last: one hour, two hours or even a half-day?

In fact, there’s no golden rule: the shoot duration should fit your wishes and needs. A simple photo shoot can last about one hour, a boat trip which includes aerial pictures can take up to four hours. However, you should take into consideration that Bora Bora’s best resorts are quite extensive and often we need to book a golf-cart to be taken from one place to another. And for example, during two-hour shoots you will be able to reach without stress many spots while during one-hour shoots moving a lot is not advised so as not to waste time.
