Thien and Thu met in Switzerland a few years back, they headed back to Vietnam right before the end of 2015 for their wedding. We have mutual friends so I were not very surprised when they asked me to cover their big day, however, still I feel special. I always feel special and excited when it comes to weddings with a mix of cultures, so many things to feel and to capture.
Ha and Tram were asking our team about having their engagement shoot somewhere simple and calm right in the middle of Saigon. The couple was busy with life and work in the city, they couldn’t spend days traveling for the shoot.
Our team was doing some research on locations and ran across Saigon Chic, a newly-opened cafe in Saigon – and the place was just perfect. Arriving at cafe you find yourself lost in this magical garden with some classic architect work around. And with early sunrise light, you tell us the feeling.
In 2015, our founder created Only In Saigon – an independent documentary-film project, with the hope to bring our future clients the highest quality available, not only in weddings but also other genres of videography.
Only In Saigon is known for its outstanding cinematic documentaries, bringing viewers a deeper understanding about the city of Saigon. You can have a look at the project here.
For weddings, below are some recent work executed by the team behind Only In Saigon, from a spectacular engagement video in Amanoi Resort, Vinh Hy, Ninh Thuan, to a emotional wedding ceremony in An Lam Riverside, HCMC.
Andre and Kathy has always wanted the engagement photos to be done in the ancient town of Hoi An, in the middle of Vietnam. The town is always a great source of inspiration for me whenever I get to come here, for holiday or work trip, so I was more than happy to be there for the couple.
I remember it was a misty afternoon, after a rainy morning. The weather apparently was not on our side. But we managed to get around it.
It was hard to stop shooting Andre and Kathie. Not just because they’re a gorgeous couple, but because all these moments of love they share are full of emotions. I just pushed myself to capture it all, as much as I can.
It was Josh & Anna’s idea to spend the weekend in the spectacular resort Amanoi in the central of Vietnam. The weather treated us right with sun and breeze from the ocean. This is definitely among my best engagement shoot.
These guys and I went to highschool together. They’ve been together for as long as I can remember. It’s funny how everytime I saw them, I still asked them about how far they got. Kissed? Held hands? Spent a night out?
Now it’s only a few days away from their big day.
It’s like something a person would wish for their whole life. A love that great.
Hoi An, a sunday day, as peaceful and beautiful as their love.
