I got a text in mid-October: “Are you free the Wednesday before Thanksgiving and wanna come shoot our wedding in Orlando? Lol”. One day later, I received a signed contract, retainer, and booked a flight to Orlando for 12 hours!
Trinh and I have had the pleasure of getting to know each other the last year via mutual friends. When I first hung out with her and Jon together, I just thought – wow, they are just so silly together! While Trinh is extroverted, bubbly, and simply hilarious, Jon contrasts her – quiet and thoughtful. They got privately engaged by the Guadalupe River in Gruene, Texas. No flashy public thing. Just them.
Given Jon is from Florida, the family-only ceremony happened in the beautiful Waldorf Astoria, just outside of Walt Disney World.
Thank you for inviting me to shoot your special day, Trinh and Jon! It was an absolute pleasure that you trusted me (and Jet Blue!) to capture your wedding day amidst of Thanksgiving travel. I would do it over again in a heartbeat.
