On this very hot November day Liam Collard Photography had the pleasure of capturing Angela and Kevin’s pre-wedding photoshoot Thailand on the tranquil Siray Island, Phuket with white sandy beaches and idyllic crystal blue waters.
The weather was so hot that day that we left the beach for a Sea Gypsy settlement on Siray Island, to cover the first two hours of their pre wedding photoshoot in the shade to avoid direct sunlight. The Sea Gypsy people were so friendly and inviting to us, that they actually feature in a number of our final edit shots. This nomadic population have their own culture and language, separate from traditional Thai people, they do not have a written history so no one is 100% sure where they originally came from.
We then made our way back to the beach below The Westin Siray Bay Resort & Spa, Phuket a five star luxury resort hotel, which overlooks the idyllic Siray Bay, providing a tropical elegance backdrop for our sunset couple photographs. Angela and Kevin both travelled from Washington, USA to ensure such a unique setting for their engagement photoshoot, our favourite image is the couple portrait silhouetted on the beach walking into the sunset.
Angela hired the superb services of the renowned Neil Donkin at Elite Hair and Makeup Phuket for her pre-wedding photoshoot.
