chris moore
Chris Moore – lead photographer and cinematographer for C PhotoGraphic. I’m from South Canterbury, New Zealand, and after living in Hiroshima for a number of years I am now based in Tokyo. I have appeared in industry film magazines, introducing my shooting style, have given seminars for Canon and give workshops and seminars to aspiring film-makers. As examples of outstanding wedding photography my photos are on the Canon site and printer catalog for the professional grade Pro-100s Canon printer. If you want to get up close and personal there is a film of my wife and two children making bread here, and some pictures of the family on a winter beach here.

Yosuke Kinoshita – associate photographer and cinematographer for C PhotoGraphic. I’m originally from Shimane prefecture, famous for the one of the oldest Shinto shrines in Japan, Izumo Taisha. Since moving up to Tokyo I love spending time exploring the city and discovering great places for our photo shoots. I live near the Asakusa area, full of traditional Japanese restaurants and shops, a place where you can still find Japanese culture alive in this modern city. My photos are much better than my English, but I am keen to make sure you experience my country Japan – and maybe teach you a few words of Japanese as well!

words of appreciation from happy couples

some (unasked for!) comments and words of appreciation from couples


we truly enjoyed our time with Yosuke

Thank you for the prompt pictures. It is the perfect Valentines gift for us.
We truly enjoyed our time with Yosuke. We are very satisfied with how the pictures turned out.


everything we expected and more

These are amazing, the turnout is everything we expected and more. It was a pleasure working with you guys and we were very lucky to have Yosuke take these pictures. Thanks again … we will highly recommend you


Thank you for capturing all the details and special moments

Thanks so much for the photos – they are really great! There are so many that we like that it is hard to pick out our favourites – we will have to work out how best to show them off! Thank you for capturing all the details and special moments.


we loved working with you. It was a lot of fun to be filmed by you

Thank you very much for your wonderful video. We were very impressed with your work and I don’t know how many times we’ve watched the video over and over again. You’ve put all the things that we cared and now that I heard you are going to put live Jazz music, I don’t think there is any more things that I need to worry about.

I also heard lots of comment from attendees that they really liked the video. I am pretty confident the longer version would look even better. Lastly, not only we love your work, but also we loved working with you. It was very fun to be filmed by you. We thought it would be awkward to be filmed…lol We hope you that you continue to make more people smile with your work.

“[the bride] sent me the short movie and just wanted you to know it brought tears to my eyes. You did a great job and she is just beautiful.

Thanks man a lot. … I am glad you were there…..its awesome…..especially since I dont have her physically at my side now. Thanks again.”
