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]

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]

Minifeel Lu photographs weddings for brides in Taiwan and Taipei.

After investing in photography, I found that I like to record a variety of stories with my camera. After walking through many countries, I discovered that talent is the most beautiful thing. I have been fascinated by the so-called photographer’s eye and the photographer’s composition rules. I found out that I didn’t have such a foul, I wanted to shoot more different pictures. I like to take care of the process of preparation, and what I can do with my imagination. All the happiness and stories of the day are the feelings that cannot be measured by value for a lifetime.

Wedding Photography by Chunwei Lee in Taiwan and Taipei.

The moving moment of the wedding is a fleeting moment that cannot be repeated. It is only once in a lifetime. We try our best to keep all the memories of the day for each couple. Maybe it is the shy expression of the bride, the look of the groom, the parents’ reluctance. Tears, happy smiles, these pictures are the most beautiful memories. I like to record happy times and write a picture that the newcomers have not noticed on the day so that you can be deeply touched when you relive the photos for many years. Wedding photography is not just a record, but the camera leaves the temperature of the day, presenting the story of your day. I hope that I will have the opportunity to be a friend who records your story, record the moment of change, and capture the picture of your life once. I am married, Jimmy Lee.

Alessandro Pietrosanti, documentary wedding photographer in Essex

A long time ago, when I was just 9 years old, I received my first reflex camera...simply, I fell in love with photography. Obviously, I didn't know anything about photography but I was sure that photography will have taken a big part of my life. I didn't know how or when, but it would have been my future. During my life, I tried many types of photography but no one of them had literally stolen my mind and my heart like wedding photography. I like telling stories and first of all true stories. Reportage photography could be the perfect way to tell stories. After some courses, I thought I was ready to start my career as a wedding photographer. I was really scared at the beginning, many responsibilities in my hands: create people's memories. But the passion and love for photography have helped me every time. Every wedding was a confirm that become a wedding storyteller would have been my future. So, I've started to live different lives through new couples every weekend. Love, laughter and tears during each wedding day, a lot of emotions altogether. I still remember a text message after my first wedding in the UK: "[...] you make me cry [...]" and after 3 years, the bride send me a new message saying: "...thank you again for capturing our day so beautifully". But how I look at wedding photography? Truth, this is my goal. During all day I catch every important moment, sometimes I really have stolen them but never, never I make pressure to the bride or the groom, even during the few poses taken. Everything has to be naturally. Composition, lights, shadows, movements are some of the things in my wedding recipe, there is a secret ingredient as well... Why couple choose me? There is a common phrase: "We like your pictures because there are true smiles...". That's it. [Essex Wedding Photographer]

Creative Portraits and wedding photography | Bride & groom portrait walking in front of colorful wall outside

Wedding photojournalists shooting portraits work within an expanded set of parameters, just like their counterparts in the news world: Some direction and setup is acceptable in order to fully capture subjects in the context of who they are and what they are feeling.
