Wedding Photography

Looking for wedding photography in Japan? I am a British freelance photographer based in Tokyo, willing to travel anywhere in Japan to document your special day. My natural and creative style of shooting is unobtrusive yet thorough and detailed.

I pay special attention to detail, covering not only the event itself but also the wider location and other little things that make your day special and unique to you, as well as the more traditional aspects of the ceremony like family and group shots.

On the day I will be available from the early morning to cover any pre-ceremony preparations you want recorded, so that you will forever have the whole day documented for memories sake.

Having lived in Japan for over a decade now, I am aware of the acute differences in culture and tradition at Japanese weddings, while baring in mind what non-Japanese partners and family members want from a set of wedding photographs.

I speak Japanese at a fairly fluent level (JLPT N2), so communication with Japanese family members or venue staff is not an issue. I can also bring a Japanese assistant with me upon request.
