There are two months in Japan which draw tourists with the sole intent of photographic ventures, these are Japan’s Maple season in December and the cherry blossom season in April. Among them are the eager brides and grooms to be and why not? The scene is perfect set up for a white wedding dress.
The maple in Japan is world renowned, and couples putting on a kimono for the scene, will fit the picture perfectly. Japan is blessed with the beauty of foreign aesthetic architectures in a few areas within its region. It is a popular trend for couple to arrange photoshoots at these European looking sites, adding value and variety to their photographs. Your first visit at Hokkaido is bound to blow you away, everywhere you look are “screensaver-worthy” shots. One of the locations in the photographs was at Tokyo’s Bus Station. They were very lucky, after the rain the sky cleared up and the wet floor gave off reflections from the light, it brought the shot to life.
In Taiwanese traditions, a child is to carry a plate of an apple, representing assurance and an orange representing good luck, to open the bridal car door to welcome the bride. But because at such a young age, it is hard to understand what’s happening, a parent will step in to help him out.
This wedding reception venue was very impressionable, because it was originally a stage performance venue. It was a unique kind of venue, and gave rise to a very dramatic kind of shooting style. We’re not sure if the groom was too nervous or too happy, but before we even started he was already tipsy. Every move he made within the shot was very present with passionate and honest emotions. Kissing, singing and hugging emotionally on the stage, it really touched every guest there that day.
Nude Bridal shoots are in trend these few years, besides its romance, everyone wants a sexy kind of photograph that’s tastefully done. As a female photographer, this is my selling point, I’m able to understand what kind of style a woman wants. Using a couple of props, such as flower petals, we can use the elegant female form to express an unintentional kind of sexy, and using fog to create a dream like atmosphere. Another photograph was taken with the beautiful sunset of Sabah. According to what the locals say, as long as it doesn’t rain, the Sabah sky is always picturesque, it was very admirable.
Kenting is the home of the crowds. Only after getting to know the locals will you get to know where the private attractions are. After a discussion with the couple, we arranged a bridal shoot holiday at Kenting. Kenning’s sunset has its own beauty. Making use of the bright colours of fireworks, and the 10 minutes of light after the sun has set, we carried out the shoot in beautiful colours.
During an overseas or travel bridal shoot, unexpected events are bound to happen, the shooting process is also very taxing. But, these moments become very interesting memories, so bridal photography shoots are not just about keeping images. Whenever I think back on the experiences, leaving couples with good memories, I turn a moment into eternity and keep that with me.
