It was a lovely summer day, Jackie walked down the leafy tunnel at Mohonk Moutain House to see her future husband James. Her wedding day arrived in full glory with the warm support from her family. Surrounded by their friends and family, the sweet couple promised to honor and love for the rest of their lives. It was such a beautiful moment, as Jackie raised the hand of her husband and looked into his eyes. That second, they know they not only exchanged their rings, but also their hearts. 

Jackie and James, thank you both for this unforgettable day, I was so happy to be part of it. Your love made me tearing up as I could not be happier that you both found each other true soul mates. Thank you for trusting me to document your very first moment as husband and wife. Hope you both enjoy the life in New York! Sincerely, Jia

First Look

The day started at the beautiful garden of Mohonk Mountain House, while the handsome groom waited for the arrival of the gorgeous bride. 

Garden Photo Session

In the garden, I must say, I was blessed with the perfect wedding day, perfect light, and perfect couple... 


This must be the most intimate weddings I had ever been into. Full of tears and emotional moments, and.... 

lots of laughter! 

Cocktail Hour

Beautiful view from the second floor during cocktail hour, the couple soon decided to get on the boat and enjoy this perfect day even more! 

Love Boat

The boat was definitely an unforgettable part of the wedding, they had such a fun time on the lake, seriously, can they be more romantic than that?

The Reception

A sweet cake cutting, followed by wine toasting and a delicious dinner. 

The End 

Jia did our wedding photography for a small, intimate ceremony at Mohonk Mountain House in late August. The photos were utterly incredible — he was so creative with his candid and portrait images and framing the background/setting. Everyone said the images were “breathtaking!” Jia coached us throughout the day so the photos looked natural and truly conveyed our emotion and chemistry which was most important to us in choosing a photographer. He was also a joy to have around on a sometimes stressful and personal day — the entire family agreed. My husband and I both didn’t even notice him during the ceremony and he moved so swiftly and quietly around. He is passionate and very personable, and worked swiftly and professionally through rain and shine (literally) on our special day. Jia also produced the finished images very quickly so it was great to share with family/friends immediately. My husband and I were so very happy with our overall choice and would highly recommend his services!! We feel very lucky to have stumbled upon this little gold mine of a photographer :)
