Caroline + Jacob
Moroccan Riad Pool Shoot
Instructor: Anni Graham
Stylist: Mae and Co Creative
Florist: Brier and Ivy
This was a shoot I did while in Morocco for one of the greatest growing experiences of my life. I attended a workshop called Immersed, which is all about destination photography and how to thrive in crazy environments. I am so grateful for this community of creatives that puts on these events, and think it is the most invaluable thing one can do for themselves. I hope to forever continue learning for myself personally, my couples, and my professional self.
Caroline and Jacob are a young and beautiful couple living in coastal California. They are also some of the most authentically curious, beautifully valued, and inspiring in love people i’ve come across, and shooting them was my absolute pleasure. The very first night we met, we stayed up late talking on the roof about our lives back home, our adventure plans and dreams, and how crazy and beautiful it was that we all ended up on this rosey pink rooftop in the middle of Marrakech. This was also my first deep convo with my soul sister, Emma. Check out her photography, it’s beautiful. She is my Mid-West lover.
We did this shoot at sunrise in the centre of our Riad. A riad is defined as: A riad (Arabic: رياض) is a type of traditional Moroccan house or palace with an interior garden or courtyard, centered around a water feature. Caroline looked striking fresh out of bed with no makeup, and Jacob rocked swimming trunks like a champ.
