Here’s a nice little tearsheet featuring some of my work, talking about beach weddings in Vietnam and Southeast Asia. Which are super fun. And which from this spread look like a walk in the park. But which from personal experience are actually far from that.
A friend of mine, and one of the more famous wedding photographers in the world, Ben Chrisman, once told me that he thought wedding photography was one of the truest forms of documentary photography. The stakes are as high as anything and there are no second takes. And you could die from a mortar attack at any moment. I mean, the chances of that last thing happening are probably next to none, but I feel like it would be careless to just completely discount it. Anyway. I agree with Ben. It can be one of the most stressful and rewarding kinds of work out there for photographers. But taking pictures of beautiful people in beautiful places? Everyone happy and having a great time? Alright fine. I’ll do it.
To see more of my wedding photography, visit my WEBSITE, and check out my portfolio and the work of my associates over at Mott Visuals Weddings. Don’t bother with that Chrisman guy up there. He’s an asshole.
Just kidding. He shot my wedding last year, and I’ll never look that good again. And I’m still waiting for him and his wife to visit Vietnam.
