Jin & Jack's Wedding

Heyyy!!! I'm back. I took several days of sick leave from EP ;) trying to recover from the colds. Even though I haven't been well, I still do a lot of organizing (in my head) and continuing the effort for the new look n feel of the homepage. It's not done yet, it's still being worked on. So hang in there :)

I know you all have been waiting for one of our infamous couple Jin & Jack's photos. I'm trying not to disappoint you and thanks so much for your patience!!! Be sure to scroll all the way down for something beautiful...

About the bride... I know her for a brief period of time during High School. I still remember a group picture in front of the Twin Tower. Then a year ago, we reunited through Chef Jane's gatherings, she was also one of Jin's bridesmaids. Then we were asked to do their engagement session, which we're still happy whenever we see their photos. Then followed by their destination wedding held in Cancun Mexico with an intimate number of families and friends attending. Although we weren't able to attend, but we were happy to be able to capture their reception here! On the day of reception, we had planned to spend a few hours for a DC shoot but because the weather was quite uncomfortable, Jin had requested we do the shoot later after the wedding. And so we will, it's scheduled in the coming days.

Without further delay, here are some of the ones I took out to share with you. Since there wasn't a dedicated time to shoot their formal portraits, anytime while waiting for guests to arrive, we snapped the shots here and there. Hope you enjoy!


Some of the careful details:

Jack and his father. Can you see there's something about this shot that makes me smile. I adore his father's expression. I wonder if that's how tt will look when he gives little t away too. That's the squint of all loving fathers:
