3 days of photo shooting. Another 3 days of pre-wedding video shooting (with Jimmy Indra). And 3 different cities. Altogether, we travelled more than 1000 KM on the road and spent ten days with this lovely Cambodian couple who flew miles and miles away from their hometown to capture their love story against the breathtaking views of Europe in the background.
We started our journey in Venice, Italy, then explored the beautiful (less discovered and quieter) Burano Island before heading to the top of Europe, the Jungfraujoch in Switzerland, and we ended the ten-day trip in Paris, the city of love.
As you can probably imagine, it was a pretty tiring trip. But honestly though, I don’t think that it could have been anymore perfect. Since we spend a lot of time together, there was a lot of potential for us to get to know them, thus making it easier for us to capture their love story. The best part of the trip was in the conversations we shared with them, in between the laughters as they taught me some Cambodian words, and in the memories that we now have of the times we spend together. I sincerely hope that it was as memorable for them as it was for me.
An and Rath will be tying the knot this weekend in Cambodia and I have been invited to document their big day. I cannot wait to be there and to see them again real soon.
