A Vietnamese Beauty set against the commanding, architectural beast that is Walt Disney Concert Hall
Located in Downtown Los Angeles, the Walt Disney Concert Hall was designed by award-winning architect, Frank Gehry. It has been a backdrop to countless photo & film ops since its completion in 2003. For this styled shoot, though, it is a gentle beast to this Vietnamese beauty.
Ao Dai: Private Tailor
Venue: Walt Disney Concert Hall | Los Angeles, CA
A Styled Ao Dai
Model Tu Thien Tran beautifully shows movement in the ao dai despite the heavier satin fabric. Ao dai’s are often fabricated of delicate silk or lace, but with this satin, it reads regal and refined. The embroidered details from neckline, to sleeves, to train hem are so intricate that additional adornment is totally unnecessary. I also love the high collar! I am amazed at how the height of it has fluctuated over the years, but remains undisputedly Vietnamese.

About Adamo Imagery
We are hopeless romantics that believe in celebrating Life with a brave heart and powerful imagery. Based in Southern California, we’ve been traveling alongside the love of beautiful couples since 2008 and nothing is more powerful than being around those who feel beautiful.
Photography cast its spell upon on us with different methods. For Khai the camera made its introduction back in high school after listening to photographer speak on career day which lead to 4 years as a photojournalist shooting for multiple newspapers and publications. Then followed art school with several years of classes that stoked an ember of interest into the engulfing and indistinguishable passion that is today. Vanessa is a trained painter, so photography was a privilege of access as she continually borrowed Khai’s cameras and took classes as a hobby. Again followed art school with the discovery that strong photographic elements were present in the composition and tone of her work as a painter. Neither of us have strayed much from the medium since.
As a couple shooting together our work is the confluence of perspective and personality. Combining to conquer. Khai is an astute observer with a quick finger seeking out the magic of fleeting in-between moments and Vanessa employs her trained eye as a painter to create immense yet delicate compositions while pulling other artistic influences into frame.
