Whitney & Tri Huynh
Hello there! We are Whitney & Tri Huynh, and we are wedding photographers who also happen to be married! After being married for 8 years we've learned a lot about love, commitment, and how to not kill each other when sharing a small bathroom sink. Here's our story.
Tri grew up in a small village in Vietnam from age 0 - 8. His family didn't have much but he remembers his time there fondly and often misses his home country dearly. Immigrating to the United States was a difficult process but a necessary one for his family. They were placed in Lincoln, Nebraska, a city and state they'd never heard of before, and quiet frankly the polar opposite of what they were used to. It was a cold adjustment but Tri loved living in Lincoln. After high school he attended the University of Nebraska where he studied engineering and participated in ROTC. It was there he met Whitney and started their relationship together.
Whitney's childhood was different yet the same in a lot of ways as her husbands. Growing up in a small farming town in rural Nebraska, she dreamed of finding her place in the world. Always wanting to travel the world she spent her days day dreaming of the places she would one day visit. Always a photographer at heart, she shot her first wedding at the age of 17 along with many of her classmates senior portraits. At the university she studied Elementary Education and Psychology but realized early on this would never be her true passion. Photography was always there in the back of her mind. She just didn't know what it would become yet.
In the fall of 2009, Whitney and Tri were married in a little white church with a red door in the middle of no where. The week after their nuptials they loaded Tri's hunter green Jeep Cherokee with everything they owned and made the 18 hour journey across the country to their new home in Atlanta, Ga. Tri had landed a job there after spending two years in the Air Force in South Carolina. The couple had fallen hard for the South and wanted to plant their roots there. Having never been to Atlanta before Whitney remembers the feeling she felt when they first drove into town off 75 North. They took a detour and drove down Peachtree Street in the middle of the night to see their new city skyline. Whitney knew instantly this was her city and it would soon become her home.
Whitney started Tulle & Grace shortly after while the couple was living in a small one bedroom apartment in Duluth, Ga. She shot her first wedding that summer and fell in love with the raw emotion of photographing love between couples. With nothing but a Canon rebel and a kit lens she built her website and the rest was history. She knew this was her calling and she never looked back.
Today Whitney & Tri run Tulle & Grace together as a husband and wife photography team. They photograph 25 weddings a year together all around the globe and have full passports to prove it. Using top of the line Canon equipment and building in a bit of Medium Format film the pair has mastered the art of fine art story telling. They believe that your wedding images should be more than just images, they should be works of art.
