Last but not least, we will tell your story by these photos and respect things that happen naturally. Started shooting from 2010, is the transition period between old wedding photos and modern wedding photos. Up to now, I have taken about 500 sets of reportage photos at home and abroad. After attending some courses, I want to do my own research as well as feel everything, temporarily do not want to learn anything more because I do not want to get caught in the whirlpool of learning but do not know how to transfer the amount of knowledge and completion. I do not fully understand the actual market of Vietnam because the nature of the courses from the above communities is only suitable for Western Ceremony, Destination Wedding ... Everyone who follows me knows that my main target audience is still Vietnamese people, not the number of foreign guests, have a ceremony and organize a party with Vietnamese customs. That's why I understand what I need to do to suit my main clients, as well as accumulate a lot of experience that can definitely help people to better understand the path of wedding reportage in Vietnam.

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.

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.

Ho Chi Minh wedding photography by Huy Che Hoang of Vietnam

Do you believe in so-called "conditions"? Huy always believed that because God had led Huy to the cause of his life, it was the art path, more specifically, it was the path of being a photographer. Everyone had a confused and anxious youth, Huy was fortunate to be able to escape the dead end. At first Huy was just a teenage boy holding a camera with his friends, fascinated with the pictures he took with the world through the lens. For a long time, Huy found the passion and excitement when photographing the bride and groom, weddings and smiles filled with happiness. Huy's goal is to tell your wedding stories through pictures with a sincere and intimate perspective. Huy believes that the wedding photos are not only boring through the awkwardly arranged photos, but also the pictures full of emotion and true happiness of the bride, groom and the participants. Huy always believes that Huy is not a photographer, he is the one who tells the story of people through pictures. For Huy, Huy will respect and convey the messages that God brings as life, love, happiness. [Ho Chi Minh Wedding Photographer]

Wayne La likes photographing wedding reportage moments all around United Kingdom, England and London

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.

Aidan Dockery, wedding and elopement photographer in Bangkok Thailand

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!

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]

Not everyone has a lagoon or glacier next door, but there's no rule saying you can't have a small wedding in the great outdoors. Take advantage of natural sunshine and that open, airy feeling and give your guests some room to breathe! LESS IS MORE Instead of hemming your guests in on all sides, give them some elbow room, and legroom, too. There's no need to induce claustrophobia when you've got a wide, open space.

But in doing so they’re missing out on a multitude of unique options that might suit their personalities much better! Why limit yourself to a quiet, quaint ceremony when your adventurous heart may be calling out for something more?

However, unfortunately that’s just not possible for everyone, especially these days when the cost of weddings can quickly and easily get out of control. Some couples find themselves in the position of paying for all of their own wedding expenses, which can be quite the financial burden to take on, and about 40% of Millennials end up in this boat.

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

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.
