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.
