When Raymond approached me, he said he had been following my work for a while. He and his wife wanted to shoot some engagement photos in Japan and wanted me to be their photographer.
At the time, I had just left the photography company I had co-founded, a major turning point in my life.
The truth was, after experiencing the events of the end of 2014, I wasn’t sure I was mentally ready to pick up a camera again. I didn’t know where I was going or whether I should even continue in this profession.
“What is my photography?” I asked myself.
Then, I received a phone call from Raymond.
“Hurry up and book your flights, wherever you are, I hope you can be our photographer, I already said so,” he said.
I want to express my gratitude to you for your trust. The meaning of this trip to me is far beyond just photography.
The Kyoto sunshine pierced through the clouds, illuminating all that is beautiful, drawing me closer to my art. – Martin
Every girl to some extent dreams about her wedding dress.
Choosing a wedding dress is like choosing a husband — it has to fit you.
I’ve secretly compared my boyfriend to my friend’s partners before, and I even asked him straight up before,
“How come I always compare you with others but you never compare me with your friends?”
He replied, “As long as I know what I want, then there is no need for comparison.”
I learn a lot about the right attitude to life from him.
The day I wore the white dress, a lot of people had their eyes on me,
but the only opinion that really matters to the bride is that of the groom’s.
It is hard to get the word “beautiful” out of Raymond’s mouth.
But thanks to the amazing make-up artist and photographer, I got it out of him!
