Noyo Creative is a collective of passionate photographers and videographers who work in harmony to create something memorable and deeply personal. When it comes to capturing authentic expressions of love and joy in detail, Noyo leaves no stone unturned.
Nhi is inspired by people, places, and the stories they tell. He believes that beauty is born of simplicity and in documenting his subjects as they truly are.
An analytical thinker by nature, Nhi was originally drawn to architectural photography, which focuses on the accurate and aesthetic representation of buildings and structures. New York City was a veritable smorgasbord for this work, and Nhi quickly fell in love with symmetry, linearity, and the stories told by seemingly inanimate objects.
Upon relocating to Vancouver, Nhi branched out into fashion and photojournalism. Through these new avenues for creative expression, he discovered a passion for marrying the analytic principles of architectural photography—symmetry, composition, clean lines, etc.—with the art of capturing real emotion and human connection on film.
“There’s a romantic feeling in an architectural space. When I photograph couples for their wedding or engagement, the physical location often amplifies the magnitude of the moment, and all the lovely feelings. I truly believe that there is a connection between buildings and spaces that have stood the test of time and love that lasts forever. That’s the approach I take to my work.”
Nhi lives and breathes photography, never missing an opportunity to capture incredible moments of natural beauty. Each year, he takes solo trips to places around the world (Japan, Arizona) to further hone his craft. You’ll often find him at Third Beach where he enjoys shooting sunsets. And, when he is not capturing beautiful moments on film, he enjoys baking sourdough bread and tending to his growing collection of houseplants.
Nhi's unique background serves as the inspiration for Noyo Creative's distinct style: capturing the timeless beauty of sentimental moments, while highlighting the best features of both people and place as equally important subject matter.
Through an approach that emphasizes exploration, collaboration, and creativity, Nhi engages clients in the satisfying process of creating distinctive narrative imagery that stands the test of time.
"Nhi is an incredible photographer. My husband and I are so happy to have found him to document our special day. The wedding pictures turned out beautifully and he captured the precious moments so well. He also is a great coach on how to make you look the best; he lets you know what poses would photograph well. He has a keen eye for detail, at the same time, an artistic ability to create beautiful pictures. He was great to work with, very friendly yet professional."
"Nhi is not just an amazing photographer, but also a friendly coach that helped us plan our photo and locations. We felt very at ease working with him. Without him we would've been so lost. We definitely got more than what we paid for! If you need a professional photographer that's great to work with, look no further. Highly recommend!"
It was so overwhelming to decide on a wedding photographer and after talking and reviewing many, many (and I gotta say about 12 photographers) styles, I can personally understand how hard it is to choose someone for your biggest day. And needless to say, WE ARE SO HAPPY we chose Nhi to capture it all! Not only did Nhi and his team made us feel comfortable in front of the camera, but I absolutely love how he was able to capture the candid moments and then the more styled photos. And the way he edits the photos are so beautiful that he's worth every penny.
