Ho Chi Minh wedding and elopement photography by Huy Che Hoang of Vietnam

Huy fell in love with photography very late, it was from the middle of 2016. At first, Huy, like the others, was passionate about photography, wanting to capture the moments only. But gradually Huy became increasingly passionate and decided to follow until now. At that time, wedding photography was not just about capturing ordinary moments anymore, brides and grooms at that time not only required the set of photos to be true, beautiful but also unique. In fact, each couple brings their own special things and special emotions, so Huy must record them artfully. It was indeed very difficult, but it helped Huy develop himself. Huy's photo shoots can be seen that Huy places great emphasis on spontaneity and honesty. Because Huy always thinks that "Huy is not a photographer, Huy is the one who tells people's stories through pictures". Therefore, Huy always ensures the best quality image to the bride and groom even the most difficult bride and groom. But Huy feels that he still has to work harder, put more effort, and learn more so that he can develop more. Huy doesn't want to be tied to the traditional wedding photography styles that Huy still wants. experience more. Huy not only shoots wedding reportage but also pre-wedding, street-life, family…. Huy has also experienced shooting in many different places such as Singapore, Malaysia, Cambodia, Thailand ... Since then, Huy found that the photos need to bring out the beauty of the couple and the surroundings. [Ho Chi Minh Wedding Photographer]

Ho Chi Minh Wedding Photographer Tuan Duong - Vietnam

I graduated in Graphic Design and I started my photography job in 2013. I have taken many different styles of photos but my favorite style is wedding photos. Because in my opinion, each set of wedding photos marks a turning point in the lives of each couple. And so, I always wanted to create emotional and valuable images for the bride and groom. I always try to create wedding photos with a lot of memories for the couple, because a successful photo set is a set of photos marking the love and affection of the bride and groom. I always look forward to such photos and I hope you too, hope that I have the opportunity to cooperate with you. [Ho Chi Minh Wedding Photographer]

Ho Chi Minh wedding photography by Vu Nguyen, of Vietnam

I'm Vu Nguyen, founder, and photographer at Emo Wedding Studio. I love photography and design as well. Wedding photography is one of my passion and my job in life. I was born in Sai Gon - Vietnam, but I have influence in wedding photography of foreign countries very much. It happened in the period of my working time in New Zealand. That had been a great time in my life and it informs my style in wedding photography. Emo Wedding is an idea when I had lived in New Zealand. It kind of my child that I have spent a lot of time to build it up. It takes a long time to inform and grow up until now. Fine Art, Hipster, Boho in engagement and mix of modern in wedding journalism are things I am following in photography. I photograph emotion and natural moments. I'm searching, observing, predicting to capture a unique moment in every photoshoot. To me, each couple will have different stories and emotions. My role is to capture all moments happens and to be a storyteller. [Ho Chi Minh Wedding Photographer]

Ho Chi Minh wedding photography by Thai Le, of Vietnam

I am a destination wedding photographer based in Viet Nam and worldwide available. After 3 years working in the industry, I’m seeing myself as a story teller not a story maker. I love to tell your real story my way. A real love doesn’t need artificial moments. I don’t set up any shots, I don’t put you into poses. I capture the real life, true moments of your day, respect your moments as they happen. After all, on looking at photos with poses, you only remember being posed. But with naturally-captured ones, you remember the feelings and the story behind. For me, Photography is my way to communicate with people and wedding photography is what I love to do so I always give you my passionate, creative, professional attitude and unrelenting energy in your big day.

San Jose Wedding Photography by Thanh Vo, of California

My name is Thanh and I am the owner of Ineffable Studios. I first fell in love with Hollywood movies and the art of films before transitioning to photography. I believe that's how I develop my style and my approach to wedding photography because I love to tell stories. Since my couples are the story, I want to be able to tell it as genuinely as possible. I want to say that my style is photojournalistic with a touch of ineffable. I don't want to just capture the moment, I want to capture it from a unique perspective. I challenge myself to see and shoot each wedding differently because each wedding is uniquely it's own. The venues and locations can be the same, but each couple is not. I really enjoy being able to document the story of my couples and capture all the emotions throughout the day/s by being in the background. My team tries to work like ninjas so that you can fully enjoy your day. I feel like that's how we able to get everybody to be comfortable enough to show their real emotions because they don't feel our presence. [San Jose Wedding Photographer]

London small wedding photography by Wayne La of England United Kingdom

The more life experience I get, the more I realise the importance of being in the moment. Playing with my children rather than observing them over my laptop; Watching a movie with my wife and just enjoying her company, the easy silence, the film and forgetting the stream of social media updates; Taking the dog out for a walk and just enjoying the walk. As they say, "waking up to smell the roses". My approach to photography is a reflection of who I am: in the moment, spontaneous, observant. I look for shards of interest in the ordinary - maybe a touch of humour, a fleck of irony, a cool reflection. I do that because I'm mindful that I'm here right now and there's always something going on - right now! My other half and I have three children and a dog. I've shot weddings all over the British Isles and USA. I'd love to hear from couples who share my passion for photographic storytelling, who use Pinterest for ideas, not rules; and who place importance in images that reflect who they really are, not what trends tell them to be.

South East Asia is where I call home, having lived in Thailand & Vietnam for 15 years years. Currently based in Bangkok, destination weddings take me all over Southeast Asia. With a love for photography & traveling, meeting people & celebrations, destination weddings was a natural choice. My style of wedding photography is best described as creative reportage with contemporary portraiture. I like to remain inconspicuous as I wait in anticipation for the events to unfold; ensuring that the images captured remain realistic and natural looking. I have a degree in Photography and have covered live music concerts, major sporting events, luxury hotels and documented for charities and NGO's. During my time as a wedding photographer, I have been very fortunate to photograph weddings for a TV presenter, a Miss Universe model, a Prime Minister's Daughter and perhaps the biggest compliment of all, another wedding photographers wedding!

Oftentimes when people are considering a venue for their weddings, they search for a location away from home, whether that be ten minutes or ten hours, all just to find what they already have: a place that holds meaning for them, that feels comfortable, or that they find special and memorable.

The photos have arrived! And of course, we absolutely love them!!! You've really captured the spirit of the day and all the moments that made it special. We can't stop looking at them - there's just so much to see in every photo, and the longer we look at them, the more there is to see! The composition of some of them is just genius. We had such a fun day, and I'm just delighted that we've got these photos to remember it by - we're so lucky we found you. The presentation box and USB key are also gorgeous, such a lovely touch. I can't even imagine how much work went into the photos, we've spent hours and hours just looking at them! So a MASSIVE thank you and AMAZING work. Cat

We were so fortunate to have found you, you were absolutely fantastic at documenting our wedding day in exactly the style we were looking for. You were brilliant at making everything look natural, even got me to smile on camera, which is a feat in itself! Looking back at our photos you have captured the buzz and the genuine emotion in everyone, I can't help but smile every time I look at them. My friends and family were thrilled to have you with us on the day, all mentioning how lovely, unobtrusive and polite you were. You couldn't have made a better impression and it was an absolute pleasure to have you document our wedding, we truly can't recommend you highly enough! "
