This wedding video is a very special one as Mijin is like an older sister to me. She happened to find “the one” in New York (New Jersey, actually) and wanted us to be there to capture her day!
If you have a destination wedding, you may want to consider commissioning us to film your wedding as the cost of our services with flying us out to New York and providing accommodations was comparable to hiring a local videographer in New York!
Their wedding day was beautiful, the weather was cool and the sun was out. There’s nothing like the NYC skyline and getting to film a wonderful couple! There was a lot to like about Mijin and John’s wedding from the beautiful outdoor scenery, to the great lighting in the church and reception, to the various cultural celebrations and food. But one thing was for certain: Mijin and John were surrounded by friends and family who truly care for them and love them.

The story behind the Pepsi-Cola sign photo: Before the ceremony, we went to take photos at the Gantry Plaza State Park in Long Island City, where the Pepsi-Cola sign (made famous by the Britney Spears Pepsi Superbowl commercial) resides. Sadly, the area where the sign is was fenced off due to construction and there was no accessible way in. Kenny, undeterred by this minor setback somehow convinced Mijin and John to hop the railing, scurry across the thin ledge, and hop back over the railing to the restricted area ;) They quickly ran in, relished in the adrenaline rush of doing something they probably weren’t supposed to do, took some pictures, and ran back out over the ledge. Definitely risky, but definitely a memorable part of their wedding day.
Congratulations, Mijin and John! And thanks for allowing us to take part in your beautiful day!
Ceremony Location: New York Presbyterian Church
