New York wedding photographers in Rochester and Manhattan

what is up everyone! are you ready for some football! um, i mean to see some more of the uber rad thu and jason‘s rochester wedding of rock and roll awesomeness?!

we are!

before we get to the images though we have to tell you a little something about them. if you don’t eat yer meat, you can’t have any pudding!

early this year after jason proposed to thu we received an email inquiry that went a little something like this…

“good day. my future bride and I attended the wedding of man & whitney last august and we’re floored by their pictures, as well as your presence during the event. (i.e. keeping up with every memorable moment) Thu (that’s my lady friend) and I would be honored to have you photograph our wedding as well. please contact me as soon as you are able, so that we may set up a wondrous transaction of ideas and currency! thank you kindly.” – Jason

we were immediately stoked and…

we skipped the light fandango

turned cartwheels ‘cross the floor

i was feeling kinda seasick

but the crowd called out for more

the room was humming harder

as the ceiling flew away

when we called out for another drink

the waiter brought a tray.

instantly, planning phase 1 went into full effect. we were going to do the baxter’s drive across america again! yay!

BUT (big but), due to time constraints we ended up flying instead of driving, much to kim’s disappointment. <—- this is pretty much her every time we fly. haha! either way, we got to the east coast to see our awesome couple.

the first thing that comes to mind when we think about thu and jason is how freakin cool they are. they’re cooler than freddie jackson sippin a milkshake in a snowstorm. they were super fun to shoot and kept us smiling all day. although we had never officially met them in-person before the day of their rehearsal, we fell in love with them through cyber space (in the facebook friends kinda way, not the skeevy-red-light-website-that’s-blocked-on-your-work-computer kinda way.) when we finally hooked up at their rehearsal/dinner we found out they were even cooler in person than they are in email. we got to spend the whole afternoon with them, their awesome family, and friends eating king crab legs, dinosaur bbq and all kinds of ridiculously good asian style grinds at the’ and hong’s home.

let me just say… they can cook!

as if the insanely good food wasn’t enough, we couldn’t have felt more comfortable, welcome, and at home if we were sitting in our own home wearing baggy sweats and bunny slippers.

thu and jason, WE LOVE YOU and your whole ohana! you guys are one in a million. hopefully we’ll get to come back to rochester and see you all again really soon. hint, hint, thoan.

as for now, we still have a grip of sessions from new york and hawaii to post, and that all day blackout we had didn’t help, so away we go!!

see you cats on the flip flop.
