“Fog is rain that whispers.” ~ Olivia Dresher
This was one of those experiences where there’s magic. Due to our schedule & theirs we only had one day as a window to plan Lanie & Howel’s Tokyo Engagement session, ahead of their Kariuzawa destination wedding next year. One day. Between us arriving in Tokyo from one of our destination weddings and them having to leave Tokyo to fly home. And while we LOVE the rain when it comes right at the end of a wedding or session (for some sparkle!!), we don’t love torrential downpours as much – for both our gear & client comfort. But we just had one afternoon. Morning was fine – yay! And then the rain came, and came and came. And we met under dark swollen skies but somehow we all knew it would be ok. We were all ready and would embrace anything. Yet miraculously the rain eased (a little) just after we started and the day gave us mist and sprinkles of light. We had the spectacular grounds of one of our favourite historic shrines to ourselves. To explore, to fall in love a bit more, to relish in life & nature and to tell a simply beautiful love story with two gorgeous people – inside and out. And if that wasn’t enough we coupled it with an evening finale in Ginza and a chance encounter with a Crystal exhibition… Another magical day in Tokyo.
Lanie & Howel asked for a more commercial style shoot rather than our more well known emotional, photojournalistic style (with a fashion edge). We all met the challenge and had an amazing afternoon playing and experimenting with new looks and styles while keeping to our 37 Frames roots in light and color. Always light and color. Lanie & Howel, thank you truly for going with all our ideas and being so fearless/stunning all day. You were spectacular to work with and we simply cannot wait for what’s next… Read more
