Amanda and Jesse’s Wedding Rehearsal

Apr 21, 2013 | Wedding/Engagement

I am always happy to be hired for my style over my abilities. When I talked to the Ashton last year they wanted my documentary style photography for their wedding. I was so delighted since I always wanted to apply that style to a wedding.

4/19 Friday: Wow the Ashton knows how to have a good time. From taking a summer camp bus to dinner, the bride’s dad’s piercing whistle, before dinner party followed by after dinner party, then headed to a bar while marching through a high school prom. It was quite the journey the eight hours I was with them. The wedding is today (4/21 Sunday) I am curious how that will be like.




  • Canon EOS 7D
  • Canon EOS 5D Mark III
  • EF 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM
  • EF 35mm f/1.4L USM
  • EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM

What happens when you combine artistry with perfectionism? You get a “spot on” photographer with a keen eye for creative lighting and dramatic angles. At our daughter’s recent wedding, Jiho Sohn captured both keepsake moments and unbridled celebration with every shutter click. The result?…hundreds of pictures that are, not only edgy, but also fun and electric.

Be warned that Jiho is not your mother’s wedding photographer. If you hire him, you will lose out on some traditional poses, perfect smiles, and balanced backdrops. However, you will gain an inspired picture-memoir of your event that is stylized and compelling. You’ll get crisp and sharp images mixed with crafty swirls- shots with attitude in black and white as well as in vibrant color. You should also know that Jiho adds slick and spirited videos to the mix—just for fun.

Finally, take comfort in the level of effort, both time and energy, that Jiho devotes to his photography projects. He spent three days shooting our family and friends, starting with an off-site rehearsal dinner and culminating with the main event; through it all, he captured late night escapades, early morning primping, festive wedding rituals, and so much more. Using his innovative style, Jiho truly paid homage to our ordinary family during an extraordinary rite of passage. His pictures are genius and his friendship…Priceless!

Thanks for everything, Jiho!!
