At times, I still find myself needing to pinch myself as a reminder that “Yes, this is real.” This was one of those moments.
As an end of a busy 2017 wedding season break, I booked a flight to Thailand for a three week adventure. Before I left, the amazing Kim from Valencienne Bridal lent me an insanely gorgeous wedding dress to bring with me in case I found myself in the perfect situation. Little did I know, I would! I did NOT however expect to be photographing the most fantastic couple on the most beautiful beach during an insane sunset.
I don’t think I’ve ever seriously used this term before but here goes … Kismet! I was lying on the beach in Railay when this totally cool couple walked by me. I thought that I should ask these guys if they’d like to be my models but then the hot sun and cool breeze clouded my head and I was right back to being a lazy vacationer. The regret was immediate. I realized I was nuts for letting them go without at least asking and so I went on my search … which ended in about 5 minutes when I found them again in a store.
The conversation went like this. Me – “This is going to sound totally crazy but I’m a wedding photographer and would LOVE to photograph the two of you” Ghazal – “OMG yes, we just got married last week and are on our honeymoon” And done!
By the time we got started, we had about 30 minutes of sunlight left and got right into it.
Thank you Ghazal and Pajam for being so fantastic and energetic! I look forward to running into you guys on my next trip and of course end with another great round of Mojitos. xo
