Rainy Season After-Wedding Photo Shoot in Tokyo

Though rainy season would be the last season couples would want their photos, Arisa and her partner Takashi decided otherwise! Thinking it would be the perfect time to have so much green in their photos, the couple decided to chance a rainy day season photo shoot. And though it rained on the day of the photo shoot, as expected, their photographer Noriaki Kakurai was able to capture cute and romantic photos.

Q. Why an after-wedding photo shoot?

Our pre wedding photo shoot was done in a studio so this time we wanted to have a photo shoot outside. We chose Inokashira Park in the Kichijoji area. Since Takashi works in the area, we've had tons of dates in Kichijoji, so it's a special place to us. 


Q. How did you prepare for your photo shoot?

We started by looking through the Instagram accounts of other brides and couples. Through that, we were able to get photo shoot inspiration and recommendations of places to hire from! 

For accessories, the earrings were from Instagram shop @ha_ka_love and the headdress from @hanano.craft16

My dress was from H&M and Takashi's outfit was an outfit we had put together prior, for an Odaiba date ❤️ 

I made the bouquet myself from materials gathered from Franc Franc, and the rest of the items like the bubbles and signs were things used over from our wedding day. 



Even Arisa's nails were decorated for the special photo shoot:

Bubbles!

Bubbles can add a cute light-hearted playfulness to photos. The candid shots of the couple smiling away are just too adorable!

Romantic boat scene

We really wanted a romantic shot of us on a boat! This was also the reason we chose Inokashira Park for our photo shoot. Though we were very careful to avoid riding the swans, of course!* ;)

*According to Japanese urban legend, couples who ride a swan boat at Inokashira Park are destined to break up!

The forest in the park

Almost as if from a painting, this cute photo was taken right in the middle of the park.

Favorite shots from the couple 

Working with such a kind and considerate photographer was so great! He listened to all our requests and what we wanted from our photo shoot. If you're lost on what to do for your photo shoot, we think outdoor ones are the best!
