      THAILAND WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

      WEDDINGS FROM PHUKET, KOH SAMUI, BANGKOK AND BEYOND

      For the couple looking for a destination wedding location in Asia, Thailand has it all. From the colourful streets of Bangkok and the hills of Chiang Mai to the beaches of Phuket and Koh Samui, Thailand is rightfully the most popular destination wedding location in the region.

      Planning a destination wedding in Thailand can be a bit tricky. How do you choose the right Phuket or Koh Samui wedding venue? Who is the best Thailand wedding planner who can achieve your dreams? And most importantly – who is the best Thailand wedding photographer to suit your vision?

      Here’s an article with links to the best Thailand wedding vendors I work with – planners, hair and makeup artists and more. Hopefully, this will make things a little easier for you as you plan your Phuket, Koh Samui or Chiang Mai wedding.

      THAILAND WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

      The Thailand wedding photographer with the most Fearless awardsLet’s start with the most important part of your wedding planning – photography! Your wedding photos will be among your most cherished possessions through the rest of your life, and it’s important to work with someone you can trust.

      With over 10 years of experience as a photojournalist, I’ve been trusted by editors at The New York Times and TIME Magazine to deliver images viewed by millions of people. With 17 images awarded at Fearless Photographers – the most of any photographer in Thailand – I’ve also been trusted to document the weddings of nearly 200 couples, something I view as even more important. Every wedding is like an assignment to photograph a historical event, to preserve for future generations.

       

      DESTINATION WEDDINGS IN THAILAND

      From the beaches of Phuket and Koh Samui to the streets of Bangkok and hills of Chiang Mai, Thailand is an amazing place to have your destination wedding.

      With a vibrant culture and beautiful landscapes, the thing I find most striking about Thailand is the colour. The colour of the markets and the food, the colour of the sunset and the flowers. I try to capture that colour in your wedding photography and combine it with the colourful emotion of your big day.

      Above all, Thailand is also an easy country to plan a destination wedding. It has international airports throughout the Kingdom so you can fly directly to Phuket or Koh Samui. Although none of your guests would complain about flying into Bangkok and spending a few days in the capital.
