A wedding in Chinatown

When Kit Young asked me if I would like to shoot her wedding in Chinatown I was really psyched. I hadn’t been to Chinatown in lower Manhattan since I was a little boy with my dad, who brought me there one magical night during a Chinese New Year and I will never forget the fireworks. So when Kit mentioned it almost a year ago, I couldn’t wait to do this shoot. It was a really hot and humid day in the city and right as I got to the parking garage it started to downpour. But eventually the rain passed and I got to meet Jia’s family and some of their friends and we began the start of the day of preparations and celebration. The traditional Chinese seafood dinner (over a dozen courses) was amazing and the party was a memorable one. Congrats Kit and Jia!
