I have an appointment with bridal party since early morning after they arrived at Koh Yao Yai Village Resort, one day prior wedding day to reconfirm all details and make us familiar each other. We then start with Koh Yao engagement photography shot with sunrise scene in that morning.
We spend almost an hour for this photo section and definitely we got many impressiveness shots with soft lighting from sunrise at the front of their resort.

As all of these items can finding around the wedding venue area.
Then during 2pm is a time for bridal party to getting ready with their friend, in differences area provided by resort and can be said that this is very extremely excited time for bride and groom and definitely funny time for both sides of bridesmaid and groomsman.
