If you love beautiful photography, incredible travel scenes and scrolling through Instagram, then you've definitely seen the couple behind the #FollowMeTo photo series.

Like all great ideas, the premise is simple: photographer Murad Osmann photographs his wife, Natalia Zakharova, leading him around the world, from London, San Francisco and Paris to India, Mexico and Singapore.

The couple now have millions of followers and are globally adored. They've shared their globetrotting antics, their honeymoon snaps and even a photo from their wedding, with all their photos perfectly edited, beautifully styled and featuring jawdropping outfits, scenery and surroundings.

The pair previously launched a separate Instagram account, @followmetraveller, to show the amount of work that goes into creating their famous photographs, and it clearly takes a lot more dedication than just grabbing an iPhone and taking a quick snap.

But for the first time ever, the couple's legions of fans have finally been granted a closer look at what goes into maintaining the popular account. They've launched a new YouTube channel, with their first video taking us through their photographic journey in India.

Entitled "#FollowMeTo India by Murad and Nataly Osmann", the video shows the dedication that goes into creating the photo series, with Murad battling the confusion of strangers and the staring of crowds to take his photos of Nataly, always with dazzling outfits and in impossibly beautiful surroundings.

Watch the video below, and have a look at some of the most memorable photos the couple have taken throughout their journey.
