Milai & Ryosuke’s Sweet-Love-in-Tokyo Engagement Session


Tokyo engagement session

Now just how fortuitous is it that the moment I come back from my 2-week Japan holiday I have a gorgeous shoot set in — guess where — Tokyo to share with you? Milai and Ryosuke are Tokyoites so they took to their favorite haunts in the bustling and colorful traditional-meets-modern city for their engagement session.

We have the always-fab Zac Wolf Photography (see his previously featured work) to thank for the beautiful set of images and not to mention the fantastic timing. (No he didn’t know about my vacation plans — it was a lucky coincidence. :)) Here’s Zac with this shoot’s back story:

Yes someone in this world is crazy enough to fly me all the way from Boston to Tokyo to photograph their wedding. And luckily enough for me they are both awesome, nice, and super super adorable. Milai and Ryosuke were AMAZING subjects and we had a blast going all over Tokyo for their engagement session which took place the day before their wedding! I loved running around with them and getting the chance the capture them on their home turf.

Aren’t Milai and Ryosuke utterly adorable together? Luckily we have the lovely Mirai to share how they met and also take us through a few behind-the-scenes details about their shoot:

I joined a small company with only 40 employees and that’s were I met my husband Ryo. We didn’t actually get to know each other for a year, but after working with him in a project, he secretly became my eye candy. 🙂 We naturally started talking and then started dating shortly after.

We both love to ride our bikes and visit all kinds of places in Tokyo, that was why we took photos all around the city! Here, you usually take the subway which is way easier.

It was after we started dating that I found out we actually went to the same school — Keio University. We had our e-session all over Tokyo, but one of the locations was at our college campus.

The pictures where we are kissing on an escalator and in front of a fountain is at Roppongi. We also have a picture at Zojoji, a famous temple with Tokyo tower in the background. And Marunouchi, the modern part of the city right in front of Tokyo station. (Although is was too modern and Western for Zac!)

I’m sure you already know a lot about Japan but most people don’t kiss or hug in public so it was very embarrassing in the beginning but Zac would shout out “KISS!” with a big smile so we couldn’t say no. 🙂 We gradually got used to it and in the end had no problem kissing right next to a stranger. (In the picture of us kissing in front of the fountain, the guy next to us had no idea what we were doing.) Of course, we always had an audience since we don’t have e-sessions here (especially kissing in public!). It was a great experience! Thanks to Zac, we had no problem being in front of the camera at the wedding.
