Mia & Tim

Mui Ne, Vietnam

It was a couple months after I moved to Vietnam that the travel bug bit. At the time, I was also following this Facebook page on amazing places in Vietnam. From there I tried to figure out a way that would allow me to travel around Vietnam leisurely, meet cool people, and photograph my favorite subject— love. 

And then the idea hit me. Why not offer a free photoshoot to adventurous couples in exchange for flight and accommodation? I would travel with them to the destination of their choosing and together we'll shoot some bomb AF passionate photos was what I had in mind. 

So I ran with the idea and promoted it on the HCMC expat group. Alot of girls (and surprisingly, guys) took me up on the offer and messaged me for more details. Mia was one of the first person that messaged me and her offer was simple. Travel to Mui Ne with her (and her post-wedding crew) and take some photos in exchange for sand dunes, bonfire party on the beach, and a free stay at a resort.
