“You have known each other from the first glance of acquaintance to this point of commitment. At some point, you decided to marry. From that moment of yes, to this moment of yes, indeed, you have been making commitments in an informal way. All of those conversations that were held in a car, or over a meal, or during long walks – all those conversations that began with, “When we’re married”, and continued with “I will” and “you will” and “we will” – all those late night talks that included “someday” and “somehow” and “maybe” – and all those promises that are unspoken matters of the heart. All these common things, and more, are the real process of a wedding.
The symbolic vows that you are about to make are a way of saying to one another, “You know all those things that we’ve promised, and hoped, and dreamed – well, I meant it all, every word.”
Look at one another and remember this moment in time. Before this moment you have been many things to one another – acquaintance, friend, companion, lover, dancing partner, even teacher, for you have learned much from one another these past few years. Shortly you shall say a few words that will take you across a threshold of life, and things between you will never quite be the same. For after today you shall say to the world. This is my husband. This is my wife.”
"Union by Robert Fulghum"
Phuket is the largest island in Thailand. It is in the Andaman Sea in southern Thailand. The island is mostly mountainous with a mountain range in the west of the island from the north to the south.
Zach and Van decided to celebrate their wedding in Thavorn Beach Village Resort, with Easy Access To Kamala Beach. In here they can relax at one of the few remaining unspoiled private beaches for a unique Phuket experience. As most space is dedicated to natural areas, its genuinely enjoy a tropical paradise without disturbance from the outside world.
They want it to be a beach holiday for the people they love rather than a wedding! They want to use that time to connect with family and friends and to show them the magic of traveling.
Here are some lovely words from them when they found us - 2 years before their wedding in Phuket:
"We want you to meet us and to be a guest at our wedding and enjoy the day with us and see us celebrate our love for each others and feel the love between us and from our friends and family, that is the story that we want you to tell. We want you to tell it from your heart. We absolutely love your story as a couple (especially because we are also travel-holics!!) and love your photography aesthetics.
We can really feel the emotions, the joy and the happiness from everything shining through your photography. We’ve always believed that you can have an average location and average dress and suit for a wedding, but if you truly love the other person and are surrounded by the people you love the most, and you have a photographer that is able to capture those feelings and those moments, then your photos will be just as magical, if not more."
When Van & Zach found us in 2017, we were entirely new with destination weddings in Thailand. Two years later, we were chosen one of the best wedding photographers in Thailand curated by Junebug Wedding.
So thank you guys for all of your trust and love our work.
We were there, capture nothing but love !
