Kimono Portraits: Yumiko

April 12, 2013


One of my favourite things about being a Vancouver wedding photographer is the many, many cultures I experience. I’ve photographed numerous Chinese weddings (almost 50% of my clients are Chinese! I joke that I got this tea ceremony thing downnnn), a couple Korean weddings and a few Indian weddings. Of course, I’ve had Japanese clients before, but they were always western wedding days. I’ve yet to photograph a wedding that represented Japanese culture!

I was really thrilled to hear from Yumiko about a portrait session of her and her mom wearing traditional kimonos. Yumiko is getting married in September, and unfortunately I am not shooting her wedding, but I was so excited to be a small part of her day. Enjoy these photos of the stunning Yumiko!
