As Sakura bloomed earlier this year, by the date of this scheduled shoot, the blooms in Kyoto and Tokyo were gone. So we “chased” after the blooms and went to Matsumoto in Nagano, 3 hours by bus from Tokyo. It was a wise decision by the photographer Nathan. We found a Sakura haven.
We arrived early and went to check out good photo spots. Its really a vast difference from Tokyo, I think population is very low there. Which is a good thing for photo taking, no need to stop traffic 😛
The bride Charmaine likes simplicity and no fuss. Even her gowns reflect that. So makeup and hairstyle is played down as per her request. Simple is beautiful, natural beauty.
Some photos, I dont know who took what, we had a fun time sending each other iphone taken pics:
