After nearly three years of closed borders, Japan has recently invited tourists to return. With this news, flocks of adventurers are heading towards the Japanese capital. While many visitors are coming on impromptu trips to Tokyo, droves of tourists have waited patiently for this moment to come, to finally have the Japan trip they envisioned over 1,000 days ago actually happen.
Last November, I heard from Shan and Jase, a couple who had long ago hoped to be in Japan to celebrate their honeymoon. Shan wrote:
Hi! My husband and I are finally traveling to Tokyo at the end of November and would love to have a couples portrait shoot. We planned on having a pre-wedding shoot in Japan. But, as you know, Covid happened. So here we are... now wanting to have a post-wedding shoot instead.
My husband would do away with a photoshoot (or even a wedding ceremony) if he could. But fortunately, he has a wife who'd remind him how important it is to have these moments captured so that they can be reminisced upon years from now. My husband is grounded, enjoys peace and quiet and his routine - while I enjoy spontaneity and dancing like no one's watching. Opposites do attract!
One of the main reasons why we want to have a photoshoot in Japan is so we could have a good time during the shoot - cool weather, good food, and enjoyable walks. Although I'm not good at expressing the look and feel I'm hoping to achieve in the photographs, I can say that I'm very aesthetic oriented. After reading reviews about your services and looking through your portfolio, it seems like your portrait sessions are perfect for us.
We're making the best of life now and traveling to our hearts' content! Considering this, please let us know if when you're available in Tokyo and your rates.
I was thrilled to hear from Shan and Jase and wanted to create a custom session that would be allow the couple to have a relaxing time together and to see some of Tokyo. In the end, Jase and Shan decided on booking a half day post-wedding portrait session.
We met on a crisp day in late November. With several hours together, we were able to explore the parks and shrines surrounding Ueno, navigate the bustle of Harajuku, and meander through sights of Shibuya. More, we were able to make hundreds of photos that will allow Shan and Jase to reminisce on their time together in Tokyo years from now.
