By the time we hit photography’s .≤golden hour’ and the sun was setting, it felt like we’d been there for a week. We could feel our hearts becoming attached to this place, and it felt very much like home.
While we were navigating the sands and seas with a beautiful location and stunning model, Sean was dealing with travel drama. His plane from New York had been cancelled and he was placed on the next possible flight out. Unfortunately, this meant he would miss the last boat from St. Martin to Anguilla that night and we would have to wait to meet up with him in the morning instead.
As much as we might anticipate, plan, and facilitate a smooth shoot, sometimes things will still surprise us. Sean was expected to arrive on the first boat in the morning, ready to style the fashion editorials we were producing with models Doug and Brittany. But after the taxi he was in got a flat, he missed another boat. Luckily, Sean managed to get onto the next boat and met us at the property just in time for the new postponed shoot time. He threw his bags open and jumped right into the job with no hesitation — what a trooper!
The first set up was in Zemi Beach’s Rhum Room, a refined and elegant vision of vibrant turquoise that captured the feeling of the islands perfectly.
Next, we had the pleasure of experiencing one of Zemi Beach House’s premier beachfront suites. We shot throughout the suite, on the private terrace, and at the private pool overlooking the ocean.
