I photographed Emma + Rico’s Krabi pre-wedding shoot at their accommodation at Railay Beach Club before we hit Railay beach to splash around at sunset. I first met Emma + Rico in Birmingham, which is basically the same as Krabi except Krabi has marginally better beaches + Birmingham has slightly fewer monkeys.
As a couple, they are two of the most kind-hearted + warm people you could wish to meet. They both have this aura of calmness + happiness that emits from every sentence, gesture + glance. We chatted about their story, growing up in the 90’s, creativity + travel. Fast forward two years + I find myself lolling around in the sea with these guys as the sky turned the craziest shades of orange + purple. I’m sure I’ll repeat this again when I share their wedding photos in the next few days but… getting to travel (not usually as far as Krabi) + see new places is something that I value *SO* much. I love the sense of adventure that surrounds shooting weddings in faraway places + I love how destination weddings bring me in on a journey that I can take *with* my couples, their friends + families.
There’s something about being allowed ‘in’ to tell the story of a wedding from an inside perspective that I’m drawn to more than ever + I love that (even after 11 years) I’m still finding new things I love about being a wedding photographer. Quick shout out to my lamp, Alline, for not allowing to just combust with excitement + joining me along for this ride. ANYWAY, I’M RAMBLING! If you’re not already following the whole story over on the gram then allow me to make a suggestion in the form of a hyperlink:GO HERE!I’ll be sharing loads of behind the scenes videos from our trip over on Instagram so you can go + put your face in that if you haven’t already. I’ll leave you with a few of my favourites from Emma + Rico’s engagement session on the beautiful Railay Beach.
Fun. Relaxed. Unposed.
