A Happy Groom

I love doing street photography in Asia. We stumbled on this scene walking around downtown Hanoi Monday. We walked up to a tiny park near the Metropole Hotel and the real Hanoi Hilton. (The hotel, not the prison camp.) 

There were dozens of couples in the park in various stages of formal wear, some in fancy party dresses and some in wedding wear, all working with photographers they had hired to make their pictures. I wandered around the park photographing people getting ready to be photographed. The Vietnamese were great sports, letting me do my street photography thing while their photographers did the formal portraits. I think it was fun for everyone. It was certainly fun for me. 

There are more photos from Vietnam in my archive and available from ZUMA Press
