[ Koh Yao Noi, Thailand ]Raluca + Lucian //Thailand Honeymoon Photography

Thailand honeymoon photography session on Koh Yao Noi island.

One of my best experiences taking wedding portraits last summer was at Raluca and Lucian’s wedding. So naturally, they wanted more. As I knew they were planning to spend their honeymoon in South-East Asia later in the winter, we planned to meet in Thailand for a honeymoon session. The first day was one of adventure: boat trip, cave exploring and kayak paddling in the Phang Nga National park. After that, we spent two more days together at The Paradise Koh Yao, a private beach on Koh Yao Noi, with magnificent views and perfect palm tree beach. A tropical luxury getaway. A bay with the perfect sunrise view.

  • Hei Sirpa, and thanks for the comment.

    I think what you mean is that you prefer images with more contrast. If you look through my portfolio, my style is more soft and emotional.

    I actually remember spending a lot of time with this particular image. And I did try more contrast on it. The result was very cool, I can not deny it. As an image on its own, it changes the look completely, giving it a strong "fashion" direction, and making it look like a magazine cover.

    But for me, this image is not about that. It is about a real couple just being themselves, not pretending to be fashion models. And somehow, yes, the "grey" as you call it brings more or the sand and the heat and the real mood of this evening.

    I very very much like the mood you usually capture in your photos. So fragile, so gentle.

    However, I often wonder, why are your B/W pictures so grey? Do they turn grey when you upload them or is it just your "style"? I'd prefer them true B/W. Eg. here the last picture would be so much more powerful with BLACK in it. This grey makes it just… dirty. And sad.

    Absolutely beautiful. I think more couples should do honeymoon sessions. We did one and it was so nice and relaxed compared to the wedding day hustle and bustle.
