“Stories have to be told or they die,

and when they die, we can't remember who we are or why we're here.”

We're Thien and Ly - husband and wife - two people of Thien Tong Photography. Although we are based in Saigon, Vietnam, we often move place to place seasonally to photograph several weddings.

Thien Tong Photography’s signature style of shooting is storytelling. Our strength is to capture real moments and make them a little more poetic than what we see.

Intimate wedding - hoian, Vietnam

The photos were taken in a workshop of Mr. Phan Tien - Phan Tien Photography, a wedding photographer living in France.

The workshop "A Passionate Journey" was in early 2021, in which an intimate real wedding of two beautiful brides was held. After first meet with the couple at An Villa, we got up early and always had our cameras ready in our hands. On that day, the couple went kayaking together on the Thu Bon River, got ready in Anicca Villa Hoi An, tied the knot in a meaningful wedding ceremony, enjoyed a party together and all the other activities besides were also captured by me.


The photos that Thien Tong Photography took that day were much more superb than what we expected.

Before the Wedding Day, anh Thien and Ly joined us in planning for the whole the destination wedding. On the D-Day, he somehow blended in quietly, followed and captured every moment of it. The story with a series of images that he told is full of emotions and details. I think those were the best moments of my life.

The wedding story of Thien Nguyen & Quynh Anh’s Wedding Day was published in Wedding Chicks magazine.

Every couple has their own story.

Thank Thien Tong Photography for always respecting our genuine selves in your storytelling. Your wedding photos and film are so real and touching that they revealed every little detail of our day. Every time we look at the photos, it's like we're living that moments again. Although we do not have much time and opportunity to get familiarized, thank you again for having such a beautiful and poetic point of view to our wedding. Not only that, we appreciate your enthusiasm a lot in the way you care about the groom's tie, helping the bridesmaids to deal with my wedding veil and finally blending in, having fun with us at the after party.

Thank you for being the perfect part of our day.
