Tokyo Yukata Photoshoot with Jennifer

On a warm early summer evening when festivals seemed to be bustling with energy across the city, I photographed the lovely Jennifer, who looked simply stunning in her yukata! She was heading to a festival herself just after the photoshoot, and I'm so glad I was able to capture a few images for her in this elegant traditional look. Seeing such a pretty yukata really puts me in the mood for summer! Thank you so much, Jennifer!

Thanks to Kimono Rental Aki Ginza store for arranging Jennifer's yukata! They did an amazing job, and they have a great assortment of yukata to choose from for the summer season. Check out their Facebook Page as well!

Midsummer at Tama Zoo

Had a quick walk through part of Tama Zoo for the very first time, and accidentally went there on one of the hottest days of the year so far. The cicadas were beginning their loud buzzing in the tall trees above, and all around us pressed the unrelenting heat of summer.

Tokyo Engagement Photography: Makaila & Kyle

It was a pleasure to photograph a Tokyo engagement session for Makaila and Kyle the other day! These two lovely people have adventured the world together, and they recently got engaged. While Kyle lives in Japan and works for the Navy, Makaila is a special education teacher in Connecticut and flies over to spend time with Kyle when she can. It was joy to take some photos for this beautiful couple! Thank you, Makaila and Kyle!
