I wasn’t able to make it during their wedding day last December due to a prior commitment I have made with yet another friend.  So I promised him and his beautiful wife Kate that I’ll take their post wedding pictures and make sure it will all be awesome.  I hope I didn’t disappoint.

Warm-hearted.  Affable.  Sweet and romantic this couple are. Their wedding day is nothing short of their character.  The day was as warm as it can get during this last part of the year.

Forget about Mekong Delta or Cu Chi Tunnels.  Without a tour guide, we roamed around Ben Thanh Market and Pham Ngu Lao and other streets of Ho Chi Minh city geared with two cameras.  Here’s my last share of Ho Chi Minh Vietnam from the Mark III.  Travel tips after the photos.

I can vaguely remember my history teacher in grade school telling stories about the Vietnam war.  So I had a preconception that the country in general is war-torn, tattered, and full of people afraid of marching soldiers. Pretty much like a war movie.  I was wrong!

It wasn’t long ago that the I shot Sok and Jaden’s engagement. I was also asked to do the same for their small sweet November wedding. After 11 long years, on their 11th anniversary they finally tied the knot.

The rain season has started early this year. It has been raining everyday and as they say, when it rains, it pours. That is why I (almost) did the sun dance for one whole week before this engagement shoot.
