Daring couple pose for wedding photo on a cliff

Viet Nam News

HA NOI — The ‘daredevil’ wedding photo album titled the Cliff of Love features shots of a young couple on the side of a mountain cliff has wowed netizens.

The photo shoot was done by Hailecao Studio, a popular wedding studio based in Ha Noi City.

The couple chose a mountain cliff as a place for their wedding photo shoot. The shots of the couple hanging above golden rice fields have earned admiration from internet users.

“We hope to seek creativity and encourage the youths to express their personality through fresh young wedding photos with colours of youthfulness, free from the constraints of tradition. This created the motivation for me to shoot this photo collection, which is unprecedented in Viet Nam,” Hai Le Cao, the photographer, wrote on his Facebook.

“The photo collection features the couple of Nguyen Hai and Ngoc Le, who have three years’ experience with trekking and want to express their passionate love through the sport they are both passionate about.

“This assignment is way more challenging than other photo collections. Besides having to bring along a traditional wedding dress, to have a close-up shot with the bride and groom, the photographer had to climb to stand at the same height with them. Some mountain cliffs must have been 100m high and we had to bring along cameras, which can easily crash into the side of the mountain. The scorching weather made us sweat a lot while we had to adjust the bride’s hair and makeup. Yet once we had committed to the task, everything was ok,” he added.

Netizens hail Hai as a “pioneer in wedding photo style”. “It’s adventurous and breathtaking. Both the photographer and couple are admirable and daring,” Le Duy said.

Wedding photography has becoming a booming business in Viet Nam. Ha Noi’s Old Quarter, Hoan Kiem Lake and other tourist draws like the central city of Da Nang and the ancient town of Hoi An are among popular places for shooting photographs. A wedding photo collection can cost up to VND100 million (US$4,200). — VNS
