I love candid moments. I know some instances that only happen once and I want to tell your complete story through my camera. Everybody wants their weddings to be perfect and it usually puts them under pressure just trying to "make" the day indefectible and even forget to enjoy their own celebration. However, it is old-fashioned when everything is fully arranged and the ceremony is going on the same track as any other ones. People now are more concerned about how they feel rather than how they look. Have you ever looked kinda weird in your photos? I guess it happenned some times, and for sure these images are usually not on your favourite list. But if you remember that it is the biggest laugh you ever had hearing your partner telling everyone about how clumsy you were on your first date, or the happiest tears falling down when he said his vows, I bet you will keep those pictures as a treasure.
Wedding day is just for bride and groom. You don't need to prepare anything. It is all about the true feelings, the memory of love and all the good things you give to each other. You are free to cry, laugh and completely enjoy your big day or pre-wedding trip. Obviously, it is not easy to find customers who share the same taste and point of view but once my clients and I find out we are a good match, we are not just customers and service provider. We became friends.
I don't mind travelling if it's needed for a prewedding photo shooting. In fact, I always advise my customers to go to where they have never been or to the place that recalls best memories so they can be excited enough to just forget about the shoot. I will capture their best feelings and moments in the most beautiful and creative way. There will be a little bit directions from me in some particular cases but it will be kept to a minimum. It's about encouraging people to go back to nature, to what they actually have, as things go, they will not be able to live that part of life again.
Wedding photography is my passion and gradually experiencing it myself gives me a lot of excitement and satisfaction. I also love to share. I am proud to be the founder of Next Generation Vietnam Wedding Photographers and Vietnam Wedding Photography. To me, sharing is power and it is so encouraging seeing the our photographers community growing healthily in the aspects of environment, techniques and profession.
Finally, here are some facts about me in case you have just come to know me. Previously, I was an architect before quitting the job to pursue my photography passion. I was also a professional basketball player. I had never thought that I would become a photographer until I shot my own wedding photos. Yes, we set up the camera, framed ourselves and shot with a remote control. It was funny and memorable. We were yet able to save some costs for the photo stuffs but the process was not as easy as we thought. Having learned from our own experience, I aim to offer our couples a relaxing wedding photography session they could ask for, as well as applying my strongest skill of "photostory" to capture all meaningful moments they show in the most natural and artistic way.
I base in Ho Chi Minh City. I do not charge travel fee if wedding is within Vietnam. Travel fee for weddings outside Vietnam such as air tickets, accommodation, in-land transportation, visa fee (if required) will be added to my service fee.
I have been in business for 5 years. I have photographed about 100 weddings as the main photographer.
I love candid moments. My photos are composed of true emotions, perfect lighting, clean compositions and sometimes theatricality. I respect the way things happen and record them in the most artistic way. I always yearn for creating something memorable, some visual legacies so whenever you look at them you can live those old good days again. I know some instants that only happen once and I want to tell your complete story through my camera.
