Tokyo Portrait Photography: Marissa

 The other day, I had the chance to do a photoshoot for the sweet and gorgeous Marissa. She came over to Tokyo just about a month ago, and talking with her brought back memories of when I first arrived in Tokyo four years back. It's always interesting for me to hear the stories of these travellers  to Japan from other countries, and find out what it is about Japan that draws them here. In Marissa's case, she told me that she has been interested in the culture and language, and prior to arriving in Tokyo, she even took an intensive Japanese language course that packed one year's worth of Japanese into two months! Now that is one concentrated course. It must be so exciting to explore and learn here, and I remember how wonderful and overwhelmed I felt during my first months in Tokyo. Marissa, I wish you the best of luck in your experiences here! I loved shooting together, thank you so much!


This place was just magical, especially after the rain.
