I first met Sonia and Jon while photographing his brother’s wedding in Hong Kong. When they reached out to me about photographing their editorial styled engagement session at Glynwood Mansion in Cold Spring, New York with three different looks, I was so jazzed.

The two were visiting New York from their home of Hong Kong, and wanted photographs in a place that they wouldn’t be able to find anywhere else. We put together three different looks – a quintessential romantic bridal look, a striking fashion gown in red to celebrate their Chinese culture, and a bohemian dress (complete with bare feet).

It’s easy for these kinds of photo shoots to feel stuffy and forced, but my goal was to capture both the candid, real moments between the two of them as a couple as well as the epic portraits that felt like paintings.

The result, to say the least, was magical. Scroll to see favorites.

Instead of the usual spiel, let me give you the real scoop on what I do and why it might just be what you're looking for in your wedding photographer.

My approach? It’s all about capturing the raw, unfiltered joy and those blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moments. I believe in photography that tells a story - your story - with all its unique quirks, laughter, and, of course, love.

I’m talking about the tearful smiles, the spontaneous dances, and the silent glances that speak volumes. My style is a blend of candid documentary and artistic flair, ensuring each photo feels as real and vibrant as the moment it captures. I don't just take pictures; you don't just want your picture taken, you want your memories preserved.

Welcome to the party! I’m Katherine Marchand.
