We met Bex and Matt completely randomly while sitting at a cafe in Hoi An, Vietnam. He held her hand and flirted with her as she giggled and looked over the menu near our table. These two had chemistry you can feel from miles away – so we had to ask them for a session. These two loves are a world apart – Bex is in Ireland, while Matt is currently working in Australia, but they met up in Vietnam – a halfway point it seems. This little town is one of the most romantic we’ve ever been to – a perfect Hoi An Vietnam engagement spot. All around us were other couples photographing their pre-wedding shoots, drifting through the canals in boats, and running about through alleyways.
We explored the small avenues and lanes Hoi An had to offer and luckily were there at the time of the full moon festival – there were lanterns everywhere. Apart from the Disney-esque atmosphere, Hoi An features an immense amount of delicious restaurants and cafes. Our favourite sessions to photograph are always ones where we’re experiencing something completely new with the couple. There’s always a natural excitement in the air and in their faces and smiles. If you’re still reading, take a look at a few other favourite adventure sessions – like this Malibu Beach engagement session or this San Juan Capistrano engagement session.
