Marriage Photography on Samui. Wedding Shaban and Yana

Date of publication: 24 Jun 2015

When working for agencies, it’s a common thing to meet your clients first on their wedding (and your working) day, right on the set.

I knocked on the door and a smiling guy opened.

I said, “privet!”, and he: "Hello"! ))

And turning into the room ““This guy just said “privet”, he must have thought I was a Russian”

So, this is how I met these wonderful guys. As it turned out out, he is Egyptian, and she is from Russia. They met and fell in love and live in Dubai now. As they said, – paperwork at registration of marriage of two foreigners in the third country led to that, process stretched for the whole year. But they decided to have their wedding on Koh Samui.

This is the first couple (that hired me) that communicate in the language (eng.), which is not native to any of them. And, it seems, for Yana and Shaban it isn’t an issue at all. To do a marriage photography for this couple was incredibly easy and fun. When people really love each other, this is impossible to hide or fake.
