End September marks the beginning of autumn and cooler days ahead in Hanoi. Many couples plan their wedding ceremonies and photo shoots round this time to take advantage of the cooler climate. The Old Quarter scenic landmarks like Hoan Kiem Lake and the newly renovated high-end Trang Tien Plaza shopping mall at Hang Bai Road are favorite spots for some memorable on location wedding photographs with beautiful backdrops. An entourage consisting of make-up artist, hairdresser, costume attendant and lighting & gear assistants diligently support the couple and photographer throughout the shoot.
These photos were taken on the eve of the Mid-Autumn Festival – the 15th day of the eighth month in the Chinese calendar, the second most important holiday/celebration in Vietnam after the New Year, where families and friend gather for thanksgiving.
