Malibu Engagement Photos :: Tuyet + Thuan

trini mai photography
You know how SoCal has one of the most mild weather year-round right? Well, for the last 4 photoshoots, the weather god has not been on my side! We were constantly threatened by wind and rain and dark scary clouds but thankfully we pulled through anyway. It’s been raining a lot lately so my weather app is being put to good use, with me checking every few hours whenever I have a shoot scheduled. My hubby is becoming an expert at watching dark clouds and making comments like “oh, that’s a small patch of clouds and it’s heading this way but the rain should pass in 15 minutes.” Haha! Although the forecast was nice and sunny all week long, the day before Tuyet & Thuan’s photoshoot, chance of rain suddenly became very high. We decided to move the photoshoot to early morning, and poor Tuyet had to wake up at 3am (gasp!) to get her makeup done. And guess what, there was zero rain that day…zilch…nada. Urghh seriously?!? But thank you Tuyet and Thuan for being so sweet and accommodating and up for anything. 🙂 Doesn’t Tuyet look so lovely in this Nha Khanh dress?

Khanh + Toan :: Malibu Engagement Photography

This post has been a long time coming because these two lovebirds have been happily married since last September! Khanh and Toan are the very first couple that I photographed, so naturally they will always have a special place in my heart. I was a bit apprehensive leading up to this and even brought my hubby along for moral support. Turned out I didn’t have much to worry about as we laughed our way through the entire session, and even more laughter followed later over yummy Korean BBQ dinner. 🙂 I told Toan the other day that I’m using some of their photos for my website, and he replied with: “Don’t put my pictures on there, you’re gonna lose customers haha.” What a silly and goofy guy! Khanh and Toan, my dear friends, I hope your life together will be filled with joy, laughter, and lots of love.
