Taken at the InterContinental Samui Baan Taling Ngam Resort in the Gulf of Thailand, Aidan Dockery chose this location very purposefully. Perched high on a hill overlooking the west coast of the island, this vista "gives the unique advantage of being able to enjoy both sunset and sunrise," says the Rf 30 Rising Star (2014), who's based in Thailand.

He and the couple woke up bright and early for this portrait, shot at around 6 a.m. "The couple stood under the sala by the swimming pool," Dockery says, "enjoying the stunning morning view over the coconut plantations in the center of the island. A small aperture was used to give the rising sun a starburst effect."
