Japan is without a doubt a mesmerizing country. With its rich culture, sceneries, and remarkable landmarks, it was hard for Ellen and Johan to just pick one city for their pre-wedding photo shoot. The couple started at Tokyo, where they planned on exploring the beautiful gardens and it was just in time to see the Sakura trees blooming. Ellen had prepared a beautiful classic white gown that complimented the soft colors of the flowers. Meanwhile, Johan's tuxedo was a soft blue color that was not striking, but still maintained the center of attention to him.
On the next day, the couple and the photographer took a train trip to Kawaguchiko to take pictures before the infamous Mount Fuji. On their way there, they all stopped by Chureito Pagoda to take some casual and somewhat indigenous photos. When they got to Mount Fuji, it was just in time for a beautiful sunset backdrop, adding more grace with each frame. To incorporate her Chinese ancestry, Ellen wore a red cheongsam dress, and to balance the elegance, Johan wore a classic black tuxedo.
Ellen and Johan ended their three-day photo shoot in Kyoto area. Of course, they had to visit the ultimate tourist destination; Arashiyama Bamboo Forest. The dusty pink color of Ellen's tea length dress goes well with the greens of the bamboos and Johan, as always, looked sharp with his grey suit. The rest of the photo shoot took a more casual turn as the team visited Fushimi Inari Shrine by midday. "There were a lot of tourists when we arrived, but we managed to find empty spots as we went to hike further up to take good shots," shared the photographer from fire, wood, earth.
Approaching afternoon, they all went to Gion area to have their last session with Johan and Ellen looking super adorable wearing traditional Japanese kimonos, strolling around the city. All their pictures turned out amazing, which was natural as the both of them enjoyed the photo shoot and were so in love. We absolutely love the smiles and affection they gave to each other throughout the photo shoot. By evening, still in their kimonos, the couple strolled down to Higashiyama District to see the old pagoda being lit up beautifully at night, and with that, concluded the whole photo shoot trip in exotic Japan.
