Jenny and Hideaki
I really enjoyed working with Jenny and Hideaki. They were such a fun, yet laid back couple. Jenny and Hideaki both come from different back-grounds. Jenny is Korean, and Hideaki is Japanese. In fact Jenny learned Japanese in college, and it came in very useful because his parents speak very little English. She truly fits right in because of her background.
The wedding was supposed to be in the beautiful gardens of the Kyoto Grand Hotel, but because of the crazy rain, everything was moved inside. They both took it so well, and nobody would even know that something had gone wrong. Plus, the inside of the Kyoto is absolutely beautiful. The architecture is superb, and we loved the outcome of the portraits.
One of the most memorable parts from the wedding was the DJ show-down. Hideaki is an LA area DJ and so a lot of his DJ friends attended the wedding. At the end of the reception, Hideaki had some fun mixing some beats, and Jenny joined in while a friend free-styled. Man, do they have some talented friends.
Thank you Jenny and Hideaki for the chance to photograph your wedding!
