Shooting Yoshi and Arisa is an eye opening experience for me. Mostly because they’re a perfect example of a modern Japanese couple. Even as they’re western educated and were fluent in english, they still deeply honored their tradition. Thus, for their prewedding photoshoot, they really wanted to wear Kimonos. Witnessing it, I know for a fact that it was not easy for them to move around a lot in those kimonos, but they really wished their tradition would be captured in their memories. And I’m thankful for that because their efforts resulted in many beautiful images that bring me back to history.
