“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.”
- Lao Tzu
Minh and An are this really awesome and fun couple I had the honor of photographing not too long ago. Even after only a few minutes with them, I could see immediately that they were two people who thoroughly enjoyed laughter, love, and each other. I am so very excited to share with you all some of their images as well as a video of their session and time with Heartbox Photography. :)
Minh and An, thank you for allowing me this opportunity to get to know you both and to document your love. May these images serve as a treasured reminder to continue celebrating your journey together for years to come.
And of course, many thanks to Kat Tinney for styling Minh’s beautiful look for this photo session!
First impressions of one another?
I thought “tall, dark and handsome. An says he thought I was really bubbly (not sure if that’s true, I’m convinced I have RBF…) and smart (I think he meant I was a wise-ass.)
Who is more organized? I would argue that I am! I organize my things religiously. Everything has its place.
Who is the messy one?
An would say that it’s me, but I think we both think of the other person as super messy because we like our space a certain way. Haha, woes of living together.
Who is more forgetful?
An - he can’t leave the house without asking me where his phone and keys are. I have to invite him to events via calendar because he forgets what I say a second later when it comes to planning social events. Men can’t plan but they sure can draft their fantasy football team with great finesse, lol!
Who is most likely to be late? We both like to show up to things on time, if not fashionably late by 5 or 10 minutes.
Who is the night owl? I am - I stay up until 1 AM while An tucks in at 10PM.
Who is the better dancer? An can totally twerk. Watch out, he’s climbing on your tables!
Who is more likely to get sick? I am. :(
Who laughs louder?
We both seem really reserved in new settings, but we end up being the loud and rambunctious couple when we’re in a warm and welcoming space.
Who is the better cook? No comment. We both can’t cook and like getting takeout, but I’ve been trying to be a good dutiful wife and finding recipes for the Dutch oven. An is really brave for even trying to eat my cooking.
Who is more affectionate? We both are very affectionate people if we get to have our own time alone to recharge. Even after 8 years, I think we will have a lot of chemistry (read: really bad habit of PDA.)
What you do you appreciate and love most about each other? I really appreciate that he takes care of the little details of day to day life for me, like washing my car or bringing me my favorite food, especially whenI have my head in the clouds. An appreciates that I provide him with support, even when days are dark.
What are you both most excited for with regards to your new future together? We’re both excited to strengthen our long term relationship into a marriage full of friendship and laughter for the years to come.
