Before coming here, I heard that going to La Graciosa is like leaving the world behind. And it really is! Time moves differently here, more slowly and gently. As there are only a few motorised vehicles that have licenes to drive around the island, the streets are paved with sand, and every local greeted us, no matter where we passed them. It felt like the time has forgotten this island. Therefore if you are looking for a small, off-the-beaten-track place for elopement where bare feet and sand in your shoes are a necessity, then La Graciosa is for you!

In November 2019, I had a chance to go to the amazing Wolves workshop with a bunch of other amazing and incredible photographers who share my passion and with whom I could talk “shop”. It was one of the best experiences of my life and a time I will never forget!

Of course, we shared loves stories and we also photographed them!

We first photographed Natalie and Jose while we were walking through La Graciosa’s main town, Caleta del Sebo at sunset. And we walked around looking for light with beers in our hands and photographing these two lovely souls. So life was perfect!

La Graciosa elopement started off with some photos in Caleta del Sebo

Lanzarote is just a stone's throw away, yet La Graciosa feels like a world away from civilisation.

Emotion and feeling is what draws me to photos most.

After the sun went down, we still kept photographing.

The next day we boarded a boat, had lots of mojitos and a delicious paella before setting off to a remote beach for more photos.
