Japan Pre-wedding 日本婚纱摄影 (Part 1)

This blog post is long overdue, have been wanting to write about our Japan pre-wedding photoshoot with Jacky & Valen for a long time, but just haven't found the time. But here it is, finally! Hope you all like it!

We landed in Osaka after a long 6 hour flight from KLIA and our 1st day was basically to clear customs, grab our rental car and check in to our homestay at Asuka Village, Nara. We of course managed to have a little walk around, visiting the nearby beautiful sakura trees, which were in full bloom when we arrived (hooray!) and trying out some of the local delicacies.

 We were super lucky, as the Sakura trees were in full bloom when we touched down!

Early the next morning, Jacky & Valen started their preparations for the 1st theme of their pre-wedding photoshoot, the Japanese Kimono! Super excited to see Valen in her beautiful floral Kimono!

 You will need to hire a professional Japanese make-up artist to help you put on the Kimono, it’s a really complicated process with many different layers.

Once everything was ready, we started the photoshoot around our beautiful homestay before departing to the nearby temple of Asukadera (飞鸟寺) to continue the pre-wedding photoshoot. It was actually raining a fair bit during the morning but it did not dampen our spirits. Here are some of the best photos from the morning session.

Once we were done with Asukadera Temple, we set off to our next destination which was supposedly Nara Park, but along the way, we accidentally chanced upon a really beautiful river with rows of Sakura trees along both sides of the river bank! The scene was straight out of a beautiful anime movie, it was really beautiful!

Once make-up is done, we proceeded to have our studio style pre-wedding photoshoot indoors. Rynnie had her beautiful & grand long trail white gown on, which looks totally stunning on her. Our gowns were rented from Impegno Wedding.

It was roughly 3:00pm when we completed our studio pre-wedding shoot and we were out on our way to Desaru for our 2nd half photoshoot. It was actually raining pretty heavily during our drive there, which had us really worried. But luckily for us, when we reached Desaru, it was clear skies.

 We had a little furry companion stick to us when we arrived at our shooting spot in Desaru.

Our final photoshoot destination was to the mesmerizing lalang fields south of Desaru. We were running a bit late, and the light was dwindling fast. But lucky for us, we still managed to capture some lovely shots before the sun set.

Sylvain x Jiebei | JB Pre-wedding

Recently had the wonderful experience of hosting & shooting pre-wedding photos for Sylvain & Jiebei, who purposely rode all the way out from Singapore to JB just to have their pre-wedding photos taken here. In case you are wondering, Sylvain is Swiss, while Jiebei is from Guangzhou. What a lovely couple!

Because of the travel distance, Sylvain & Jiebei had planned to have their gown trial session just 1 day before the actual photoshoot itself. Usually not encouraged because it takes time to alter some of the gowns to fit the bride. But given Jiebei's figure, she had no trouble fitting in most of the gowns on display!

For those who are not aware, gown try outs can take quite a long time, with typical timings of 2-3 hours. Basically you need to reserve the whole afternoon just find the gowns you love! :)

The next morning, after reaching the bridal house around 10am in the morning, we started the make-up & hair styling session for Jiebei & Sylvain's 1st set of attire. It took roughly 2 hours to complete.

Once make-up was complete, we proceeded with the pre-wedding photoshoot, starting with indoor studio setting before moving outdoors later in the afternoon. The whole photoshoot was complete around 5pm and we were on our way home. Hope you all enjoy the below highlights from Sylvain & Jiebei's pre-wedding photoshoot! =)
