Gina Smith Photography bio picture
  • Hi! My name is Gina and I am the lead photographer of Gina Smith Photography. I consider myself so lucky to work with a team of the best photographers and videographers based in Phuket and Samui. We specialize in lifestyle, bridal, couple and family photography but also love to cover culter, editorial and fashion. We travel around Thailand and Asia documenting our wonderful customers which is a dream job as we get to create imagery in a beautiful environment with happy people.

    The blog showcases our work, weddings and events and also our personal lives (because we want to know about you and hope you want to know about us). Our style is a blend of creative photojournalism and traditional portraiture so you have a diverse collection of images you and future generations will love endlessly. Take a look around and if you like what you see we would love to hear from you!

Elephant photos & Phuket gallery stop

Caitlin & Aaron hired me to photograph their wedding day in Phi Phi at Outrigger Resort & Spa and mentioned they just had to get some wedding photos with an elephant. But since there aren’t any such creatures on Phi Phi island we did a sort of pre-wedding photo shoot in Phuket a week before the wedding with a stop at an elephant camp and art gallery in Sai Yuan area. It was a chance to get to know them and photograph around my local area as well.

With their bridal party and some wedding guests in tow we braved the blazing mid-day heat for photos with a baby elephant. All of the locals were on standby as an adult elephant was about to give birth but there was no National Geo moment for us but I heard the arrival happened the following day. We went to a nearby art gallery for portraits and I’m going to blog about this amazing Thai artist next month because his work is bright and colourful, made from recycled items and the whole gallery space is an ever-changing creation with a little cafe for a beer or coffee – perfect!

How gorgeous are Caitlin and Aaron? Wait until you see their wedding photos on the blog next week ~ photography by Gina.

 

Lovely beachside wedding in Phuket ~ Sharon & Peter

Sharon & Peter from Australia are truly a lovely couple who wanted a lovely wedding day in Phuket with an emphasis on their guests having a fun and relaxed time as they celebrated.

They hired The Romance Planners to take care of the wedding planning for their ceremony and reception at Le Meridian Phuket Beach Resort near Patong with a theme of simple elegance with white roses and orchids and subtle splashes of pink.

The ceremony was on the lawn overlooking the private beach and later they had dinner and their reception party in a marquee with beautiful lighting and chandeliers. You can see all of the loveliness of their wedding day below in some photos ~ photography by Jaran, wedding planning by The Romance Planners.

Wedding at The Surin in Phuket

If you ever wondered what a wedding at The Surin in Phuket looks like, let me show you – stylish, beautiful and made from tropical dreams. It was the location that Claudia & Chris chose to get married on a perfect Phuket day. Love the colours, blues, purples and the floral arrangements were so lovely.

Chris was one of the most relaxed grooms and love those lifestyle-looking images that our photographer Jimmy got before the ceremony. Chris couldn’t stop smiling. Claudia had all of her girls gathered in the room to get ready before the wedding ceremony and Lisa and her team did a beautiful job of their hair and make-up.

It was a lovely ceremony and a reception to remember. We all wish you the best blessings for the future ~ hair & make-up by Lisa, photography by Jimmy, wedding video coming soon!

A Thailand wedding, you should try to have an elephant on the beach of course and one that holds hands with you is even better!
