For the month of October, this Kelowna Wedding Photographer had the opportunity to travel to Asia with her husband and children (ages 4 and 17 months) and capture not only some amazing family photos, but a few Weddings too!
The first city we stopped in was Yokohama Japan and I didn’t know it when we planned to visit, but Sankeien Gardens was buzzing with Wedding excitement. It was a Wednesday, but couples were flocking there to get their pre-Wedding photos taken. To say I was SUPER excited to catch a glimpse into the ornate and sacred world of Japanese Weddings is an understatement!
Spying my first couple, I was so excited to see their beautiful Wedding apparel. And with each couple who I was fortunate to see…it was again totally different and unique.
I made my poor family follow this first adorable couple all over the gardens until I gained enough courage to ask their Wedding photographer (and I wasn’t sure if they would understand me at all) if I could pose them and take a few images. He luckily did speak some English, conveyed my wishes to his clients and told them I was a Wedding Photographer from Canada. They happily obliged and I am so glad they did. I LOVE what I was able to capture. Thank you SO much Yuna & Sota! Many blessings to you on your Wedding day!
For the remaining two couples, I politely smiled and “asked” if I could take their images. Their photographers didn’t speak English and so the following poses are not my own, but illustrate the completely different fashion and or religious styles, of the couples.
Thank you to all these gorgeous couples who allowed me to be that “Aunt Betty” who at so many of the Weddings I photograph, wants to come over and capture some photos on her own camera 🙂
