Beyond Paradise: Kory + Katch´s Honeymoon in Vietnam

Who says you only need a photographer for your wedding? The honeymoon is an important moment to document, as well – especially if you do something like Kory and Katch. You already know from their names that this couple is going to be kool (sorry, couldn´t resist), and they didn´t disappoint. Instead of going for the traditional beach paradise getaway, the couple decided to hitch a ride on a water taxi and go rock climbing of a remote beach one day, and the next hop on a moped and do some general adventuring in Cat Ba, Vietnam. Once again, Nirav Patel captures this awesome couple doing their thing and makes each image look like a movie still.

From the photographer: A few weeks after Katch photographed a wedding with me, I received an email from her titled “My Wild Dream”. In this email she asked me if I’d be willing to photograph her and her husband Kory as they spent their honeymoon together in Vietnam. Being a photographer herself, she realized she was always the one with the camera and never actually had photographs of her and Kory together on their trips. I wrote back and said “I’ve got my bags packed”.

After my flight landed in Hanoi, I had a 4 hour taxi cab ride that took me to a hydrofoil (speed boat) which led me to a motor bike that finally dropped me off at my hotel. That was only the beginning of this adventure…
