A Fashionable Pre Wedding Photo Shoot around Tokyo Station

For camera-shy Saki and her partner Ted, the idea of preparing a pre wedding photo shoot was the last thing on their minds while getting ready for their nuptials. But the couple decided to take pre wedding pictures to make use of their wedding attire, get used to being in front of the camera and have something to send to guests as invitations! For their pre wedding photo shoot, the couple was looking for natural but fashion magazine-esque photos. Picking Kazuki Takano as their photographer, here is their story with Famarry.

Q. Why Famarry?

After seeing all the beautiful pictures and helpful information on the Famarry Instagram we decided to look more into the website. I even used Instagram to look for my dress, and ways to do my hair & makeup haha!

Q. How did you prepare your outfits and accessories?

It felt like it took forever to find the perfect dress for the wedding. After finding it, we decided to do a pre wedding photo shoot to "get more bang for our buck". Ted, who really likes more western-style clothes, found some clothes he already owned to match my dress. We bought the bouquet at a flower shop that was close to our photo shoot location. And the hair & makeup was done by the same salon we plan to use for our actual wedding day! So it felt like a practice run for everybody.

Q. How did you communicate with your photographer Kazuki Takano? 

We were able to talk about things like place, date and time using the messaging feature on Famarry. Since we met and are getting married in Tokyo, we wanted something that was very Tokyo-esque. We're so thankful that Kazuki suggested Tokyo station and many great spots in the area.

For the camera shy couple

With the knowledge of the couple being camera-shy, photographer Kazuki Takano decided to keep the shots more candid.

Break-time shot

Resting in front of a vintage brick building, this candid shot certainly looks like it could appear in a magazine!
