Q. Why an after-wedding photo shoot?
Our pre wedding photo shoot was done in a studio so this time we wanted to have a photo shoot outside. We chose Inokashira Park in the Kichijoji area. Since Takashi works in the area, we've had tons of dates in Kichijoji, so it's a special place to us.
Q. How did you prepare for your photo shoot?
We started by looking through the Instagram accounts of other brides and couples. Through that, we were able to get photo shoot inspiration and recommendations of places to hire from!
My dress was from H&M and Takashi's outfit was an outfit we had put together prior, for an Odaiba date ❤️
I made the bouquet myself from materials gathered from Franc Franc, and the rest of the items like the bubbles and signs were things used over from our wedding day.
Even Arisa's nails were decorated for the special photo shoot:
Photo in a magical forest
Walking through endless green, Arisa looks like a character from a fairytale.♪
Walking on a bridge
A romantic photo of the couple holding hands as they walk across a bridge.
Husband Takashi took some photos as well♪
Bubbles can add a cute light-hearted playfulness to photos. The candid shots of the couple smiling away are just too adorable!
Romantic boat scene
We really wanted a romantic shot of us on a boat! This was also the reason we chose Inokashira Park for our photo shoot. Though we were very careful to avoid riding the swans, of course!* ;)
*According to Japanese urban legend, couples who ride a swan boat at Inokashira Park are destined to break up!
Though a regular kissing shot was a bit embarrassing, this cute hidden shot of the couple kissing was perfect for them!
The forest in the park
Almost as if from a painting, this cute photo was taken right in the middle of the park.
Favorite shots from the couple
Working with such a kind and considerate photographer was so great! He listened to all our requests and what we wanted from our photo shoot. If you're lost on what to do for your photo shoot, we think outdoor ones are the best!
