The person behind the lens

As an award winning Ho Chi Minh City wedding photographer, it's always a pleasure capturing weddings in this amazing city.

Ho Chi Minh City is the largest city of Vietnam. Situated in the South Eastern region the city surrounds the Saigon River. It has a vibrating energy, fascinating culture and classic French architecture that sit alongside sleek skyscrapers, ornate temples and pagodas. A wonderful hotch-potch of old and new sitting alongside one another.

Buzzing with life, this freewheeling, cosmopolitan metropolis is the economic heart of Vietnam. The city comes alive after the sunsets and is filled with rooftop bars and fantastic restaurants that overlook the beautifully lit river and beyond. And if you’ve been browsing the images on my website, one thing you’ll have already learned about me is that I love cityscape images.

There are lots of reasons why couples choose to have engagement and pre-wedding photography. Firstly, they are a great way for you to meet your photographer before your wedding day and secondly you get some amazing images of you both together. These photoshoots are always heaps of fun. Especially if you choose somewhere that has meaning like the place where you had your first date, a favourite cafe/bar or your favourite place to visit on the weekend.

As a renowned wedding photographer in Ho Chi Minh City, having captured many Vietnamese tea ceremonies and weddings as well as being a long-term resident of this amazing city, booking your wedding photography with me is placing it in safe and experienced hands.

My professional experienced combined with my local knowledge means I really do have everything covered and I have established strong professional relationships with the very best Vietnam wedding venues.

It won’t surprise you to learn that there are some simply amazing wedding venues in Ho Chi Minh City. I would like to talk to you about three of my favourite wedding venues in Ho Chi Minh City now.

An Lam Retreats Saigon River

Tucked off the shores of Saigon River and surrounded by lush scenic garden, romantic An Lam Retreats Saigon River offers a truly unique wedding experience. They boast themselves as offering ‘barefoot luxury and a rustic yet chic feeling to craft out-of-the-ordinary moments.’ As an experienced wedding photographer, I can confirm that this is what they deliver for every wedding, every time!

They offer two unique and stylish venues both offering magnificent backdrops for beautiful wedding photos. For weddings of up to 80 guests their pool side venue is ideal. Or for larger celebrations of up to 150 guests their impressive ballroom is perfect.

As a Ho Chi Minh City wedding photographer I love capturing the exquisite garden ceremonies at An Lam Retreats River Saigon. The wedding team dress the garden so beautifully it creates a magical setting for an unforgettable and utterly photogenic wedding ceremony.

Set on the banks of the tranquil Saigon River in the fashionable Thu Duc city area sits Mia Saigon. A private urban sanctuary that is the last word in Vietnamese style and luxury.

The wedding team at Mia Saigon offer beautiful outdoor ambience weddings on their gorgeous river deck. Running alongside the Saigon River with the city scape as an awesome backdrop it makes an amazing setting for a wedding. Add to that exquisite food and you have everything you need for the perfect wedding in Ho Chi Minh city.

For larger celebrations, Mia Saigon offers exclusive use allowing you and your guests to enjoy the beautiful pool, gardens, restaurant, amazing rooftop emerald room with its panoramic views of the river and Landmark 81, and the stately elegance of their Madame Lam room.

When I document weddings at Mia Saigon, I love taking romantic images of my couples at sunset on their beautiful river deck. With the low sun reflecting off the river, the awesome cityscape backdrop and the low light creating a romantic soft focus, it creates epic portrait images that my couples adore and can treasure for a lifetime.
