They Shoot Weddings, Don’t They

It’s been a long year, in the best possible way. I’ve been busy these past few weeks shooting for a couple of newspapers, getting my year-end slideshow together and helping The Word magazine compile its Year in Rewind lists. That’s what December has become: a month of nostalgia. Best photos of the year, best music of the year, biggest news stories of the year, people of the year, things we miss this year, things we want to see next year, etc. It can be a bit dizzying. But I get caught up in it as well. It helps categorize life. And it helps us move on to next year. Plus, I like to reminisce.

Which brings me to one of the many cool things I did this year. I started a small wedding photography company with another photographer here in Vietnam. It’s called Esian Wedding Photography. It’s me and Justin Mott. The above images are from a recent engagement and wedding we shot at the Intercontinental Hotel here in Hanoi. We’re just getting ourselves off the ground and running and we’re looking forward to 2011. ‘Wedding’ used to be a dirty word for editorial and documentary photographers. I’m glad that point of view is changing. We’re all moving on and up.
