Linh and Kris – Wedding Part One: East

I first met Linh at a photo shoot were she was doing her amazing make-up. We started talking about a project I was involved in – Help Portrait – and Linh wanted to be involved too. We became instant friends and since then have worked together many times. I love the way Linh does make-up and I love her infectious enthusiasm every time we do a shoot together.

When Linh approached me to photograph her weddings (yes – two weddings) I was honored and excited and couldn’t wait to meet her fiancé Kris. She explained that she wanted a traditional Vietnamese wedding with a formal tea and candle ceremony. The bride and groom, in front of all their guests, serve tea to their parents. Each parent then gives advice about marriage and family to the them. A candle ceremony will follow, symbolizing the joining of the bride and groom and the joining of the two families.

The next day we photographed their beautiful American wedding (don’t miss that blog post coming up!)

I think every bride should get to marry her man twice…
