WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER - HENRY TIEU PHOTOGRAPHY

I am a wedding and elopement photographer based out of Seattle, Washington. To me, photography is an investment and I commit 100% to my couples. I am also that weird dude who would become friends with his clients and stalk them on social media because I love to see where they are in life and in marriage.

If you could tell your younger self something you’ve learned along the way, what would you say?

You can't compare your beginning to someone else's middle. Instagram is a great way for new photographers to learn and to jump start their businesses. However, it is also a dangerous place for self-doubt. Stop comparing yourself to others. Instead, observe and learn from others to see what you can do to improve yourself.

What is the most unique or special place you’ve worked/done a shoot?

The most special place I've done a shoot was on Mount Storm King in Washington. The hike is 4.7 miles roundtrip with a 2065 feet gain and both my clients and I are deadly afraid of heights. We couldn't move as much as we could but we ended up with beautiful photos that I still can't stop staring at.

What inspired you to become an image maker?

I am inspired by memories and capturing the beauty of life. I wanted to capture memories of my own life and I realize I would want the same for others. Photography allows me to express myself in ways that words can't do.
