G and G are from Hong Kong and had been to Japan and Kyoto a few times before but as they are getting married later on this year they decided to have their pre-wedding photos with the sakura in Kyoto. Hard to read the timing of when the Sakura will be in full bloom but April the 8th turned out to be a perfect day – sakura in full bloom, a beautiful sunny day and a fun couple.
The above 4 pre-wedding pictures were taken at Philosophers Walk (哲学の道).
We then moved to the Keage Incline (蹴上インクライン) for a few more pictures amongst the low hanging sakura. Even though it was a weekday there almost as many people as sakura blossoms so had to try a few tricky angles to get get just the blossoms and not the people.
After the Keage Incline we went to Gion (祇園) and back to the hotel to change before heading to the Kamo River （鴨川)
and then the Kyoto Botanical Gardens （京都植物園) for some night shots with the sakura – those pictures are next time.
