One half of me is yours, the other half yours
Mine own, I would say; but if mine, then yours,
And so all yours.

Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice, 3.2

If the wedding day is about the two of you becoming each others, the things that come after that, the babies and more are what makes you a family, more than just two halves of a whole.

Maternity photos, then Omiyamairi (お宮参り) photos, then Shichigosan (七五三) photos and then, I suppose, Seijin Coming of Age photos (成人式) and then wedding photos again to come full circle.

I’ve been luck to photograph maternity, Omiyamairi and Shichigosan events of the couples I photographed or filmed weddings for. A delight to see them after a year or two, now proud parents, having a family of their own.

2 hours (usually one location), at least 60 edited/retouched photos, 55,000 yen

Photos are selected from a much larger number taken, edited, and then made available for viewing and download from a private link.

We’d love to hear from you about your day – do get in contact.
