You might remember the gorgeous Ash and her lovely husband (!!) from their beautiful wedding day at Bandara, they were a treat to get to photograph and I had such fun with the bridesmaids and groomsmen!
So we scheduled their trash the dress session for about a week after their wedding day, to be on a lovely spot on Chaweng Beach which Nek and I had been testing out (snorkelling, haha) before hand. This spot, at this time of year has the clearest, cleanest water you ever did see (on Samui), which makes it PERFECT for us to get some lovely shots in the water.
Soo.... without further ado, check out this awesomeness for yourselves!
See what I mean, how beautiful is this spot of beach...?
I suggested to start with we spend some time out of the water first, and I'm so glad we did...
I mean, on the wedding day there's so much hustle and bustle going on, you're always worried about other people, your mum's shoes go missing, your brother-in-law needs to find dad suddenly or whether your niece has eaten her afternoon snack yet... That's why I think it's so important to have a session like this alongside your wedding photography. You two will be much more relaxed and in the moment and really be able to have fun together and just enjoy each other's company... :)
This is one of my favourites!
We had this pup joyfully follow us along during the most part of our session, luckily Nek was with us, helping me carry my bag and camera gear and he helped keep Bob company (that's what we named our little furry friend) and make sure he was out of some of the important pictures.
Damn you Bob, for being too cute! We had to let him in some of the photos... look how adorable he is! He definitely a pro at modelling!
Cor got excited when I said it's time to get in the water and ran off without us haha! Someone was either too hot or was just too eager to get his wife in the water! ;)
Sometimes, I just go silent during our sessions (which scares people into thinking something has gone wrong, on the contrary...), it's usually when I just feel like a moment is too good, too beautiful to spoil with words. Like these...
So, for the other half of our trash the dress session, I decided to give our GoPro a try and get some photos underwater as well. I'm actually really happy with the results, and love these photos!
I've got to admit working with the GoPro take a bit of getting used to but it turned out ok once I got the hang of it! :)
These three, I especially love, so artsy!
YAY!! We did it, all happy and we all survived easily, dress not even dirty, just wet! Thanks to Nek for taking this happy photo of us :D
Happy SATURDAY and enjoy the weekend, I have a busy one here on beautiful Samui :)
