“Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.” ~ Emily Brontë
Japan. So endlessly fascinating. And we never love it more than when we have a chance to photograph a quintessential Japanese wedding. With all the traditions and trimmings. A stunning shrine, a breathtaking bride, a dashing groom, the meeting of families. Then there’s the intimate, culturally sensitive ceremony & layers upon layers of history & meaning. The poignancy never lost on us, forever enchanting. That we are on this photo journey is a story in itself. And one we are hopelessly grateful for. We pinch ourselves…often…that we bear witness to these celebrations.
And so we absolutely adored being part of Tatsuji & Kaori’s wedding story this October. A beautiful blend of traditions. From old to new, with a more western style reception, a darling first dance, that gown, a groom-mikoshi and then one fabulous after-party (the Nijikai). It was a joy from start to finish, one we loved from their Engagement Session. The wedding unfolded like a Japanese fairytale. Kanda Myojin (神田明神) awash in excitement and love & the elegant Tokyo American Club simply sparkling for the main event. A most perfect fashion to start & celebrate a life together… .
It was also with much joy we welcomed Crystal Schmidt as a 37 Frames Associate Photographer for this wedding. The extraordinarily talented co-owner of Pure Photography & Design. It was such a delight to work together…thank you truly for all your hard work & vision. On with the show… Read more
