Hanoi wedding | Nga and Tim
Tim Gerard Barker is a photographer and videographer based in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. He’s also a friend and someone I always grab a beer with when I’m in town. So I was very happy when he and his fiancee Nga asked me to photograph their Vietnamese wedding in Hanoi earlier this year.
I lived in Hanoi for 10 years and saw first-hand how rapidly the city changed during that time. It’s an odd and uniquely amazing place – on one hand, it’s rooted in tradition, on the other it’s a perpetual motion machine that accelerates and transforms right before your eyes. Life moves pretty fast here. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.
Which is why it’s good to photograph it.
Thanks, Nga and Tim for inviting me up for the good times!
