High Street Wedding Photo Shoot

Wedding Photo Shoot Trang Tien Plaza 1

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.

  1. Very cool! I love the first photo, so well captured. Looks so great with the motorcycles casually passing by and the focused point is all glamorous in front of LV.

    • thank you very much, elina.
      the shopping mall – trang tien plaza is THE luxury shopping mall in Hanoi. All the glamorous luxury 1st tier brands are housed there. that explains why wedding couples love to have some photos taken there, the luxury brands (e.g. LV) storefront decor/lighting makes a nice and luxurious backdrop.
      the motorcycles were not casually passing by, they were speeding past! i took multiple shots at lowish shutter speed/handheld to blur their motion. the photo i published in my opinion captured the couple’s mood and moment beautifully while emphasizing the motorcycles’ motion.

      have a good day ahead and best regards,
