Risa & Kato | Tokyo, Japan wedding

I can’t believe I am about to blog a wedding from Japan! I photographed a wedding! I photographed a wedding in Japan! What a dream this wonderful job of mine is. Not only did both my husband and I get to go to Japan for work, we have lifelong friends now as well. I photographed Risa & Kato last year for their engagement session in Santa Monica. I worked with them right before I headed out of town for my own wedding. We became instant friends and had so much fun doing their photos. We of course became facebook friends and Risa sent me a message asking me to come to Japan to photograph her wedding! 5 months pregnant my husband I headed to Tokyo for a week long trip. Risa & Kato’s wedding was beautiful as you will see below. My husband & I were treated like royalty, not like staff. Their family was so sweet and kind. Every ten minutes a mom or grandma would come and ask me how my baby is. We got to witness their beautiful church ceremony. No photos were allowed but we were able to take photos before the ceremony started. We then headed to their reception which was at a french restaurant with a famous chef. The chef, Toshio Tanabe is known for using soil in his dishes. The restaurant was set up beautifully and we had so much fun eating and taking photos. It really didn’t feel like we were working! We love you Risa & Mi-chan! We will never forget our trip that happened because of you and hope for many more!
