Lotus village Hoa Lien
When wedding photography is more and more popular and regarded as an art work, many photographers travel everywhere to find new and beautiful spaces for shooting.

Brides and grooms look like country girls and boys when appearing with “áo yếm” and “quần lá tọa” with tucked up trouser legs. They are very simple and spontaneous. However, there are just a few weeks when lotus buds are in the most beautiful period. So, can not all brides and grooms have wedding photos besides lotus pond.
Đông Giang – Hill of tea fields
Travelling about 40 km from Danang city to Đông Giang hills, brides and grooms will get a spectacular for their photos.

A numerous of fine wedding albums show that even unless we travel far or invest a lot, we still have photos full of love at pretty cáfes or familiar street corners. Compared to Sai Gon or Ha Noi, Danang is lack of cáfes with their own identities. Therefore, some cáfes become much more attractive to brides and grooms like Bibblo, Rafew, Kathy… However, if it is my turn to be bride, I will definitely chose a street cáfe for my wedding album. Street cáfes with low tables and stools have become a coffee drinking style of Danang people recently. Brides and grooms with simple tables, with black coffee glasses, with bustling streets… must bring an impressive album.
