Phuket Wedding Photography | Video | Damien & Yang | Jivana Villa’s

What an incredible wedding of Damien & Yang at Shanti Jivana ( Ananda, Jivana Villas ) it was at this very same venue I shot my first Thailand wedding about 6 years ago!

Damien first contracted me for his Phuket destination wedding about 2 years ago, after about 100+ emails discussing his coming special day even I couldnt wait any longer, we were very excited to capture this wedding at a very special place where my photography & videography career began!.

Damien from France & Yang from China, this young couple met in Paris and later he would ask for Yang’s hand in marriage while on a small private boat trip on the river in Paris! <3. D & Y are currently living in Shanghai, China, they not only live together but happily run a business together in Hong Kong in Finance project development!.

D & Y wedding settings were beautiful!, white & pink flowers really blends well on a green lawn surrounded by palm tree’s over looking the Thailand sea and just a step away from the golden sands of Phuket/Phangna!. Guests had a “RED CARPET” entrance with their own photographer upon arrival and the reception/dinner setup was like no other villa/beach wedding I have ever seen. Rather then having dinning tables for all the guests they have individual lounge style couches & chairs creating a much more relaxed and fun atmosphere. The Wedding Bliss Thailand  did an awesome good putting this all together perfectly and beautifully!.

D & Y wedding lived up to its hype, super fun day and a wild after party that lasted till very late to early morning the next day!

Well worth the wait!, enjoy the photo’s and video. 

PROUD TO ANNOUNCE THAT ONE OF MY PHOTOS FROM THIS WEDDING WON A PHOTOGRAPHY AWARD!… AWARDED FROM WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS SOCIETY

Villa Kalyana Koh Samui Wedding of Sarah and Andrew

Villa Kalayana wedding in Koh Samui, Thailand of Sarah & Andrew of Australia. Sarah & Andrew’s wedding was anything but typical in the sense of the energy that was in the air!, both Sarah & Andrew come from Vietnamese heritage the day started out with a Vietnamese tea ceremony, similar to a Chinese ceremony. The guests were all decked out in custom made robes (super cool BTW) and Sarah & Andrew in traditional Vietnamese outfits.. Later on they had there western beach wedding with the traditional exchange of vows and rings. Once the ceremonies were over the guests and the newly married couple let loose and turned the rest of the day/night a big party with a spectacular cutting of the cake with fireworks followed by fire dancers on the beach. I have been to alot of weddings but this one was unique, the love and chemistry between everyone was very deep and emotional its as if all 50+ guests grew up in the same house, like brothers and sisters with the funny and sometimes mean jokes to the small fights and bickering, it was all there. Truly beautiful to witness and I was honoured to capture this special day through my lens as a photographer and my videography team got some great footage. Video coming soon!

Koh Samui wedding of Isobel & Luke’s at the Melati Resort & Spa.

A totally cool and calm bride making all her preparations, Issie looked stunning in her A-line silhouette dress with French lace bodice. It was a perfect day for a destination wedding in Thailand, sun, a fun couple and a private beach!. What else could you ask for?

As you can see I focused on the people & the moments as thats what the real essence of a wedding is, of course I took set up shots of the ceremony, flowers details ect. but the focus is people so I chose just to display just that!

Wishing Issie & Luke all the best – Enjoy the gallery!

Maki & Stephen | Sri Panwa Resort | Phuket Wedding Photography

Phuket Thailand wedding of Maki & Stephen at Sri Panwa Resort & Spa in Phuket, Thailand, Sri Panwa being one of my favourite venues in Thailand and definitely the best in Phuket!. I love it for its picturesque locations from jungle settings, private beach setting, interesting spa, glamorous view tops with pools, the lights & shadows pop up everywhere in this venue so as a professional photographer & videographer I just cant get enough!.. Oh and how did I forget, the stunning view top of BABA NEST for some stunning sunset photo’s with a dreamy UNREAL backdrop of red, orange, pink, purple, blue colours in the sky and you can even see a little bit of some mountain tops (Islands) in the far distance..

This wedding was super fun as my full team of wedding videographers, my second assistant photographer and myself had plenty of time to get creative and with a FULL TEAM its just easier to cover everything and not have to worry as much!. Allowing us to be more creative then if we were the only photographer on site and a full team of 3 videographers helps big time as there is SOOO much involved in the video department and so much more equipments to move around all day then us photographers!… Stephen & Maki from Singapore were super easy to work with as well, super nice and down to earth people which helps because the more we can connect with our wedding couple the more confirmable we will all be with each other and it makes it much more magical and stress free for you the wedding couple to have a camera in your face much of the day/night. Some people just get nervous or just feel unconformable in general, this is very normal so dont worry I know how to work around this, after 300+ weddings that I have shot here in Thailand I have met all different types of people from just about every part of the world.. The important thing is to just have fun and enjoy yourself’s, your family, Thailand and each other!, if your worried about whats next all the time and you cant seem to relax and enjoy the moment this can effect your photos, how the day will unfold storytelling (photo documentation), your portraits and more!… I try not to be overly formal at all from our very first email as I think because having that connection/relationship with my clients is so important for how everything may turn out, so I try to be as down to earth as possible and as REAL as possible without losing any professionalism.. Once we are friends that will be working together at your wedding, you will drop your guards and feel completely at ease and confirmable in front of the cameras as I will also have my guards down feeling more at ease “YES US PHOTOGRAPHERS GET STRESSED OUT TOO” all that nervous tension in the air can rub off on us!.. So lets be friend’s! 😀

Oh LOL sorry I just got completely off the subject here didnt I?, haha sorry!, well there is still a good read there and I hope it helps you understand what is about to come your way!.

I would continue with Stephen & Maki Phuket, Thailand wedding story but as you may know most of us wedding photographers & videographers dont like to tell a story with our words, we express the story we want to tell through our beautiful photos & videos!.. So have a look at the gallery and enjoy!….BUT FIRST CHECK OUT THEIR WEDDING VIDEO….. Cheers

Phuket, Thailand wedding in Chic Rustic Wedding style was the theme for Samantha & Neal’s destination wedding at The Naka Resort & Spa in Phuket, Thailand…

Beautifully done by “I Am Flower” and well thought out by the bride & the wedding planner “The Wedding Bliss Thailand” …

The day started out like most Phuket wedding days, sunny and HOT!, the bride and groom from Hong Kong had the Chinese gate crashing games in the morning followed by the western ceremony in the afternoon. The wedding party had a great vibe and the family had great chemistry together which is good for me the wedding photographer as I LOVE to take photos of people and moments!. It was a big day for my team (The Baci Productions) & I as this was our 3rd 12 hour wedding in 3 days, and this was a larger wedding (for a Thailand destination wedding) of over 100 people my wedding videography team had their hands full with the pressure of delivering a SDE (Same day edit) of the morning events… But thanks to a lovely couple & good wedding planners the day went smoothly and at the end was a success.. Enjoy the gallery

Tahnee + Ivan | Phuket wedding at Trisara Resort

Phuket, Thailand wedding, Tahnee + Ivan –  Trisara Resort & Spa… An emotional rollercoaster it was at this Phuket wedding but it was mostly laughs as the couple and their wedding guests were fun and easy going people. Almost the entire wedding ceremony was filled with laughs, jokes and some light tears as was the reception’s speeches!, OMG Ivan’s brother had us laughing SOOO hard it was hard to keep our cameras still!, the father/daughter first dance was so sweet!, I think I caught Dad crying 10+ times (check the first dance photos its my fav).. Then it was party time nobody was shy to dance it was an all out RAVE (haha)… I love weddings like this, it had all the right element’s good location, good looking photography friendly couple, fun loving crowd, many events such as ceremony, reception, flower toss, garter toss, first dance, cutting cake, and alot of dancing!, make’s for great wedding photograph’s and video’s!……..

Great wedding hope you enjoy the wedding photos and the videography
