When Taka & Erika contacted us from Tokyo, Japan and asked us to photograph their LDS wedding in Phoenix, Arizona, it was a no brainer! Of course! What a huge honor!!
It was amazing to escape Alberta’s cold winter & go see some palm trees and enjoy so +32(c) weather. It felt like heaven. Taka & Erika are an amazing couple. Very sweet with each other, very gracious with others, very giving and generous. We felt so special & honored to be there with them. It was such a highlight in our lives. Erika is a nurse in Tokyo, and as such, has been on the front lines with all of the tragedy helping those in need. It was very interesting to talk to her (and their families) about the recent devastation in Japan.
Adam and I have traveled to Japan for pleasure & for wedding photography and LOVED it! We plan to go back within the next 5 years again. We go during Cherry Blossom season & there is nothing in the world like it, as Cherry Blossoms line the canals. What a beautiful, magical place!
(note to self: show some photos & travel stories from our travels over to Japan)
Erika & Taka had a charming elopement style wedding, with only 7 guests. Lunch was at a darling restaurant with the most amazing food ever! It was quaint & special. There wasn’t a dry eye during their touching LDS ceremony. Taka & Erika, we wish you ALL the best in the world, and cannot wait to come visit you in a few years in Japan!
