Romantic Spanish Sunset Engagement Session in Ibiza

You already knew we can’t get enough golden hour photography over here at SMP, but this stunning Spanish sunset engagement shoot from Ana Lui Photography might take the cake when it comes to easy, breezy romance — you can practically feel the passion coming out of you screen! Dive a little deeper into this desert island eseh in The Vault here!

From Ana Lui PhotographyNatassia and Joelle chosen Ibiza for the engagement shoot because it has so much meaning for them. The island has become their second home during the summer days.

“We got engaged here on the island, on a full moon night on top of a rock, making wishes to the Universe… it was magical!” says Natassia.

The peaceful side of the island has taken their breath away and has blessed the couple with the magical energy of the island.

“As soon as I saw Ana Lui’s photography I knew I wanted her to be part of our engagement shoot” says Natassia remembering the vibe and the feel that they were after “I wanted the shoot to capture the magical beauty of Ibiza, and the amazing soft and warm light you find just before the sunset”

Natassia wanted her engagement session to feel a little bohemian but at the same time to show the natural Ibizenco colors.
Pine trees, old Ibizenco fishing huts and beautiful sunset.

“We have chosen Sa Caleta as a location after going through the moodboard and choosing a place that would give us few different looks. Sa Caleta has it all! The fishing huts are super fun, with cool textures and colors, we also had sea right beside us and stunning pine forest overlooking the beach – picture perfect for the sunset!”- says Ana Lui

Ana Lui shot both film and digital and when she got her film scans back from the lab she was absolutely crazy about the images!

“The softness in Natassias and Joelle’s skin is increadible, you can almost see the wind playing with Natassia’s hair and feel the heat of the warm, orange sun through the photos. I am totally crazy about the film images!” says Ana Lui

Ibiza is the simply picture perfect. With 300 sunny days a year and stunning locations, the island provides amazing backdrop for engagement shoots or destination weddings.

Ibiza Inspiration Shoot with a touch of Boho

These images from Ana Lui make my heart sing. I could honestly get lost in them all day, and really, I might do just that today. With beautiful design by Le Jour Du Oui, styling by Danielle and florals by Flowers Ibiza – this gallery is inspiration overload in the best possible way. See it all here.


From Ana Lui PhotographyI have been dreaming about shooting something less bridal and more rustic, fun and YOUNG for a long time. When I saw Bibi my heart skipped the beat. She is the most stunning person, inside and out, that I ever had a chance to photograph.

Bibi was raised in Ibiza. She is a flower child, she loves nature and if she had to plan her wedding day she will definitely incorporate Ibiza countryside, nature, fresh products from the island and lots and lots of animals into the picture.

We shot this session on Fuji 400H, film only, and Carmencita Film Lab developed the rolls and scanned all the images. I didn´t have to edit! Make up and hair was perfect – thanks to super talented Diva Borrelli. The location was a dream, with huge gardens, palm trees, gorgeous agave plants and crazy amazing corner where we set our table under the apricot tree.

We did some beauty close ups before Bibi put the wedding dress on and throughout the day when the sun was going down we changed her hair and put it up in a messy pony-tail. We chose sequin espadrilles for Bibi to wear. Espadrilles are from Ibiza and I feel like every bride should have a pair to wonder around the gardens or walk down to the beach for the sunset. Flowers were provided by one and only Kristin from and as always Kristin exeeded our expectations.

The whole shoot wouldn´t be possible without amazing Cristina Di Giovanna, wedding planner & designer event stylist from Le Jour du Oui and Danielle Hodgson-Lindley from Velvet Circus Ibiza who styled and sourced all the props and deco.

I love working with these girls! It´s such a creative, fun and open minded environment…Dream of every wedding photographer.

Bohemian Beach Wedding in Ibiza

From the Bride’s stunning beaded and backless gown, to the all-natural vibe created by their rustic cliffside setting, this Ibiza wedding is the ultimate inspiration for any boho Bride. The couple even flew in their adorable doggy! Check out the gallery from the amazing Ana Lui Photography, and feel completely transported to the Spanish Isles!


From Ana Lui PhotographyWhen the guests arrived they where served chilled melon cocktails and transported down to the garden where the ceremony took place. The couple wanted to have a spiritual wedding in front of Es Vedra rock in Ibiza, know for its magical and magnetic powers. They found Diana, a local ”Shaman” and she led the ceremony beautifully.

The main theme was the four elements, and, together with Diana, the couple created the most memorable ceremony of everything they believe to be truth and important to them.
Groom’s brother Alexander played guitar while bride’s girlfriend Camilla sang “A Thousand Years”. .

The ceremony ended with a butterfly release and whispering wishes! Butterflies represent joy and happiness. Afterwards, Lovely Laura the saxophonist played the guests upstairs for canapes and cocktails.

Winter Beach Wedding In Ibiza

Ibiza. Do I really need to say anymore? A white dress, a handsome groom, the shores of one of the most captivating places on earth. It’s the very contents that make up the most beautiful wedding story ever and with a few amazing vendors behind the wheel (we’re talking to you Ana Lui for these stunning images), this celebration is loveliness defined. Make sure to stick around in the gallery for even more!

Beach Resort

From the Bride … The first time we visited Ibiza, we instantly fell in love with the island. We go back about once a year and now Ibiza really feels like home to us. A nice ‘home’ where the sun always shines and a beautiful beach around every corner. For destination brides, I really suggest you go and visit the venue before you book anything. When you walk around the venue you really get a good feeling of the vibe and style of the venue, and if it is the right size for your number of guests. You won’t really get that from some pictures on the web. Since you have to arrange everything from a distance, a good local wedding planner who can advise you, has great ideas and help you find good local vendors, is really almost essential.

Our wedding was one of the most beautiful days of our life.
