I'm a professional wedding/family and vacation photographer based in Kyoto & Nagano. I also do landscape photography as my personal artistic works. My photography style is all about naturally documenting unique moments, and the real reactions of my clients. So I have no set routines. I will never ask you to say cheese, let you do unnatural poses, or tell your kids to stay still. I'd like the photos to be very unique, just how it should be. So please relax and enjoy the photo session together. My reportage style work has won an honourable mention at Tokyo International Photo Awards.
