How is the wedding photo shoot in Thailand?

Date of publication: 13 Mar 2015

If before the culmination of the wedding was considered a registration in the registry office, and the “coolness” of the occasion was measured by the number of guests, but now the emphasis had shifted to emotional, romantic, creative and stylistic plane. The main feature of modern weddings is that she's done FOR HERSELF. And one of the best options to celebrate this event is to go to any corner of Paradise in the circle of the closest.

My goal as a wedding photographer is to see you what you yourself feel about myself and pass it through photography. Your character and your “format” as a couple is a decisive factor in choosing locations for shooting, style and even the working of photographic equipment. So our introduction and preliminary discussion of at least the key moments of the shooting is very important. Ask questions, share ideas and expectations — is the key to an impressive result.

it is obvious To me that you're on vacation and on the day of the wedding ceremony you unnecessary worries to anything. For its part can offer (or to look for specifically) trampled by other newlyweds locations. Also think about the best route and mode photo shoot (many nuances associated with the position of the sun, tides, etc.). Read more about this in my article “the Choice of location for the photo shoot” .

can Also be informative if the old man photographer on Samui will share their experiences of working with different specialists in the organization of celebrations, style, visage, etc.

To capture fully in a reportage style

the Peculiarity of the work of a wedding photographer in Thailand (and other exotic countries) is the ability to capture fully in a reportage style, that is, being “invisible”, is not interfering with the ceremony. In the West have not taken to the newlyweds for photo shoots, to get them to pose, to smile and to kiss on camera.

This approach works only when the celebration is full of small events, emotions, and takes place in a well-decorated space. In Thailand, this space is created by nature, ancient culture and tourist infrastructure (morning bride in a luxurious hotel is not in a city apartment). And all the time you will be busy then each other, then some small but exciting action — plant a tree, start, a flashlight, Pat-feed the elephant (bouquet), ... that's enough spoilers.

However, I still propose to include in the wedding photo session, some elements of the production. Working under natural light, I can give you a sign as to turn to the sun draw better cheekbones or highlight flowing outfit. From time to time I give tips on posing, especially if we take not the ceremony, and a walk in some beautiful place. So how can a little “Polustrovo” young photo beloved grandmother “on TV”? However, if you want, I'm ready to command all the time though. In short, to worry how you look in the frame, it is not necessary in any case.

The main feature of the photo shoot in Koh Samui

I Almost forgot to tell you about the chip post-, up – and-instead-wedding photo shoot in Koh Samui. You can afford all of what not to do on a conventional wedding: wet and dirty dress, pulling her hair, to risk makeup. If at home exposure to rain can be catastrophic, there is more likely to bring a new storm of emotions and will make the event even more lively and vivid.

Oh, and finally such a request: if you feel that we can work together — please contact me at least one month before the proposed date of the wedding photo shoot (but the sooner the better). It was a lot when flying from another country. But in any case the plans easier to adjust than to break.
