It’s not everyday that we get to shoot in the streets of Thailand.
It’s not everyday that we get a gorgeous bride with her handsome groom who gives us carte blanc to shoot them anywhere… do anything… in the streets of Thailand!
We weren’t sure what to expect bringing a bride and groom and all our camera gear through the little town of Patong. But we were completely blown away by how welcoming, fun and hospitable the Thai people are. The massage ladies would clap and cheer, even snap their own pics with their cell phones. The vendors on the street happily let us shoot them and lean on their carts. A couple opening up a restaurant invited us up to the third floor of their building so we could shoot on the rooftop. Even the police stopped traffic so we could cross the otherwise impossible-to-cross busy street.
It was a phenomenal day, leaving me buzzed and re-inspired. Even today when I look at the images, my soul gets tingly with excitement. I’m happy, and a little anxious, as we’ve never had the opportunity to street-shoot a bride and groom like this before, to share a few images with you…it’s that shy excitement of sharing something for the first time.
**Bonus points for anyone who can guess how many people are sitting on the motorcycle on the right of the image below :)**
Please leave me a thought or two in print, I’d love to hear what you think!
