A Tokyo Story

June 28, 2009

I love Japan rather a lot (have you noticed that about me!?) I love the fashion, the food, the people…the Hello Kitty – everything. In fact  I think there is nothing about Japan I don’t like, and Tokyo is by far the most amazing city I have ever been to. So when I clapped eyes on Sandra & Richard’s engagements by the fabulous Tealily Photography I had no doubt in my mind that a feature would be getting underway.

Photographer Trish described their shoot:
Joel and I waited at the old green carriage and the statue of the dog which seemed to be a very popular thing to do amongst the human sea of trendy Japanese and slighty overwhelmed tourists. I had only conversed with Sandra via email to that date and suddenly realised I had no idea who I was looking for until I spotted a couple of sweet faces pull through the crowd. We had decided to catch up for dinner since Joel and I were passing through Tokyo and decided to try and fit in a few shots before the light disappeared for the night.
We weren’t quite sure where to head for these photos in the crazy streets of Tokyo, but Sandra had decided to triple up this date as a bit of sightseeing for us and lead the way.

One of the many things I love about Tokyo is how diverse the city is. One minute your under the bright lights of the Shibuya crossing, then you turn a corner and your right in front of an ancient shrine. I would live there in a heartbeat.

Thank for the reminiscing Trish & Joel!
