Being in an international marriage myself I love photographing couples where both are from different countries. This time she was from Japan and he was from Singapore, where they met and are now living.
This wasn’t one of those photo shoots with lots of posed shots and endless kisses, this was a fun afternoon wandering around Meiji Shrine, Yoyogi Park, Harajuku and Shibuya – a casual date with photographs to remember it by.
After walking in the sunlight around Meiji Shrine we went next door to Yoyogi Park for some cherry blossoms – along with what seemed like half of Tokyo. Note that there are no wide shots under the cherry blossoms – that is because you wouldn’t have been able to see the couple for the thousands of people! Some tricky angles and positions to get just the two of them and the blossoms and then it was off to Aoyama Gakuin, walking down Omotesando street.
She graduated from Aoyama Gakuin so we had hoped to get some shots there but we were soon stopped by a friendly guard. Undaunted, we headed to the famous scramble crossing outside Shibuya station for a finale.
