I was super stoked when Tamara contacted me to go and photograph her and her boyfriend, Rico on Koh Tao. Not just because I love Koh Tao, but also  because Tamara is a photographer herself in the Netherlands, so it is such a HUGE compliment for me to be asked by another professional to capture their memories! You can take a look at Tamara’s blog here.

We started our session off near where Tamara + Rico were staying at the Koh Tao Beach Club. There were some beautiful rocks which Tamara and Rico loved because there’s nothing like this in the Netherlands.

I love how these two just fall effortlessly into each others’ arms and make snuggling up in front of the camera look easy.


We decided to walk the short distance up to Sairee Beach for some more photos, and found this awesome spot with Koh Nangyuan in the background.

Rico also owns his own business back in the Netherlands (from what I understand…) it’s an awesome adventure training fun day for corporate companies to send their employees off to. Which sounds like so much fun to run, to me anyway!

I did a bit of a location scout before our session and I found this fun sign which I really wanted to incorporate into our photos, because this is what Koh Tao is all about! Fun in the sun, diving, snorkelling and paddleboarding (which I did, but more on that another time).

Tamara wanted to change dresses, and if I had seen it earlier,  I would’ve said to change sooner! What beautiful gown!
