“ Coo was punctual, professional and personable. He led us through our locations smoothly and even carried my wife's bag at one time so we could capture some candids as we walked. Communication through text and phone was easy, with links to map locations and possible lunch options. And the pics arrived only 2 days after the shoot! Overall great experience. ”



“ Lucas was fantastic and did an amazing job photographing my family!!! ”



“ Coo was so friendly, that my boys found him so easy to chat with, as we walked to various photo shoot places in 2 hours. What I found amazing about Coo was his patience. We came to Kyoto during the golden week, a time when it seemed all the locals were also out enjoying their public holiday season and school holidays. Places we were at were so packed, yet the pictures came out as if we were the only one out there! Kudos to coo... ”


“ Fantastic proposal shoot! Coo speaks great English and was able to capture what I wanted. In fact, the photos came out even better than what I imagined. Some of my fiance's family have never met me before. I made a slideshow video using these videos and their jaws dropped. Their first impression of me is someone who clearly loves his woman, and someone extremely detail-oriented. I will use Flytographer again for future photoshoots. ”


“ Lucas was great! He was easy to converse with and made our family feel really comfortable. The time we spent with him went quickly and we loved all the photos. He chose some ideal locations and he gave us some good tips on positioning. It was casual and didn't feel like a typical portrait session. ”


“ Wow!! Coo was incredible - meeting up with him was incredibly easy, and he gave us instruction on where to stand for the best photos. He was very easy to work with, and the photos are amazing. Truly a fantastic keepsake!! ”


“ Coo was a fantastic part of our trip to Kyoto. Not only were his photos beautiful but we feel like we got a special tour of gion and some parks. He knew exactly where to take us for amazing photos. ”



“ Excellent photographer able to capture good candid moments. Use lights and colors well during the fall season when the leaves change color. In addition to being a talented photographer, he is a guide explaining the history of the places where we took pictures. He then sent us recommendations for restaurants in Kyoto. Nice meeting with Coo! ”



“ Lucas is really an amazing photographer to work with! He is friendly, nice and humble! Our friends really raved about our photos as he managed to capture not only our happiness during the trip, but also the beautiful scenery and autumn colours! Thumbs up for Lucas, we do not have regrets hiring you :) ”


“ Coo was fantastic! He did everything in his power so we could have the perfect photoshoot and we're truly grateful for his dedication and professionalism. We had a great time during the shoot, and everything felt natural and relaxed. We also got to learn a few things as Coo shared some of his knowledge about Japan and the various locations where he took us. Such a great souvenir for our honeymoon! ”


“ Coo and Yurika are amazing and chose very good spots to meet my needs. it was so fun hanging out with two of them and they did everything to help me relax and took many nice candid shots. Coo also shared lots of good restaurants that we enjoyed! Would definitely want to come to Kyoto again cos I had such a great time. ”


“ Coo and Yurika made our first Flytographer experience so great. We loved all our photos, they came out so beautiful! We enjoyed the mix of candid and posed photos and the different backdrops. Thanks for a memorable photo session!! ”


“ Coo is a fantastic photographer who was amazing to work with; he took us to a secret bamboo grove at the Fushimi Inari Shrine (away from the nonstop flow of tourists) and took amazing pictures at multiple locations at the Higashiyama area that I never knew existed. He was on-time, constantly communicated with us via Whatapp for the surprise proposal and was always looking for the perfect shot. I couldn't ask for anything more and my fiancee and I both love all the photos. ”


“ My fiance and I was introduced to flytographer from another couple who went to Portgual and used the service. My fiance and I decided to try out flytographer as our engagement photoshoot for our first time in Japan. It was our fault for not choosing a photographer months prior but we were fortunate enough to secure Coo as our photographer 1 week prior to our vacation. There weren't that many photographers available in Japan (3-4 photographers) but the concierge at Flyphotographer worked patiently with us to help us secure a photographer which we are very grateful. Our photographer was Coo (his wife, Yurika was doing another photoshoot so we didn't get to meet her). Coo was punctual, welcoming, kind, and very approachable. He was patient with us and provided guidance on the direction and posing of the shoot. We openly communicated with each other the kind of style we wanted for the shoot (i.e. more natural, less structured poses and more background of Kyoto's autumn leaves). Coo was attentative and listened to our ever need and we never felt rushed even though we booked a 1hr shoot. He even shared with us his career as a photographer and places he recommended for us to visit and eat in Japan. I definitely recommend Coo as a wonderful photographer to work with! It was our first time in Japan and Coo captured our emotions against the beautiful landscape of Kyoto beautifully. I will definintely use flyphotographer again for future photoshoots with friends and loved ones. ”


“ Coo & Yurika were an amazing team and we were so lucky to have both of them shoot with us during our trip to Kyoto! They both had genuine, warm personalities and we felt very comfortable with them during our photoshoot. The turnaround was very fast for the photos, and I loved how they were able to capture our candid moments. I'll definitely recommend them to all of our friends and family! ”


“ Coo was really great, he knows his way around, friendly, and has amazing photography skills. He made it really comfortable for us during our honeymoon photoshoot, thus made it natural and sincere. ”


“ Lucas was wonderful to work with! It was nice to spend an hour with him and see part of Kyoto while he took photos! We love the pictures! ” Read Katy's Travel Story


“ Our photographer Coo was absolutely amazing!! I am so happy we booked him for our Kyoto photoshoot. I had a certain vision for the photos that I wanted for our first family trip with our 1.5 year old, and I'm love with all the photos!! Coo was so great with our toddler! It's so hard to get her to smile in photos, but Coo was an absolute magician in how he could get her to smile in almost all the pictures. We are normally very awkward with photoshoots, but he made us feel comfortable during the entire photoshoot and was able to capture very natural poses with ease. I highly recommend Coo if you're ever in Japan! ”


“ Coo was cool, calm and collective. He just let us appreciate the area as well as get comfortable and take natural shoots. He directed as needed but got really great shots. His energy was what we really needed. ”


“ Coo is fantastic! He is friendly, clear, gave us great direction and captured the most candid moments beautifully. He is patient, flexible and fun working with our family, especially our disinterested 1.5 year old. Coo is exceptionally kind, generous and an excellent professional photographer. We will cherish our memories of the shoot alongside the photos forever. ”
