[honeymoon] Nancy and Shawn, Chaweng Beach Sunrise, Koh Samui

love story
January 6, 2014 / By / Post a Comment

Yippee to the first blog of 2014!!! And to start the year off I’m WAAAYY behind, haha. Nancy and Shawn, I’m so sorry! Better late than never is what they say, so I’m happy to finally be showcasing your gorgeous images.. 😉

Nancy and Shawn visited Samui for the last stopover of their adventurous and romantic honeymoon. Nancy decided she wanted some photos to capture some memories from her and Shawn’s amazing honeymoon and contacted me spontaneously, fingers crossed.   When I met her, Nancy told me she hadn’t planned on having photographs taken and being a lover of photography herself, she just felt that it should happen and contacted me in secret without telling Shawn. 😉 (That’s the best way to do it, girll.)

They met at school in Xinzheng where Nancy teaches at high school and Shawn the corresponding university. Three years of dating later and they were pronounced husband & wife.

The photographs are taken on Chaweng Beach. We had an amazing time together watching the sunrise and laughing, and I can’t have imagined a better way to spend an early morning!

I love Nancy’s dress that she decided to wear! I love the colours of her tie dye dress with her turquoise earrings and Shawn’s shirt 😀

We walked along the beach and found some longtail boats, and I loved how well the colours go with Nancy & Shawn’s outfits!

Haww, Shawn is one happy and not to mention LUCKY guy to have Nancy by his side 🙂

I love how travel savy Nancy and Shawn are, they told me they left their real rings at home and got some engraved during their visit to the Full Moon Party on Koh Phangan. Travel safety at its best and it gives you great memories too. 😀

When I asked what they usually do together, Nancy said when they were first dating Shawn always used to lift her onto his shoulder and they hadn’t done it in a while though… So I asked them to show me 😉

We found heaps of these little crab holes in the sand that morning, I think they look cool!
