Okinawa PreWedding all day shoot with Alice & Howard

I recently had the pleasure of shooting for a fantastic fun couple Howard and Alice from Hong Kong that came to have their PreWedding photo shoot done here on Okinawa. fotoShisa Photography was called in to cover their all day multiple location shoot around the island. 

After picking them up from their hotel in American Village we traveled around together with our make up artist and assistant to various beaches and locations around Okinawa and took advantage of the beautiful summer weather we have here. 

The climax of the day was getting to Cape Zanpa just in time to catch one of the most beautiful sunsets I've seen in a long time!

Everyone had fun and Howard & Alice were full of energy right from the start of the day to the finish!

Afterwards the couple had this to say about fotoShisa Photography...

"First of all, we would like to thank Pete and Haruna for their hard work ! Our photos looked amazing, we loved it !!! You are a true talent ! Most important of all, we enjoyed the shooting experience as much as the photos.!

Thanks Pete for taking the time to meet with us the day before. He patiently discussed with us about photo styles, personal preferences, location..etc. We thought this greatly helps our photo shooting experience and made us less nervous (very important !)

Haruna's great personality has made the whole experience even better. The day was filled with laughters and joy. 

We wish we could have stayed in Okinawa longer, we loved the place and enjoy their company. we can't wait for them to come visit us in Hong Kong !!! 

Thanks again Pete and Haruna~ fotoshisa is highly recommended !"

As you can see we covered a lot of ground and had a lot of fun!

Lily & Jason's destination wedding and Disneyland California PreWedding shoot

Just a month after returning from photographing a destination wedding in beautiful Carmel and Monterey in North California I just returned this time to LA to shoot a wedding party and pre wedd location shoot, at Disneyland! Lily & Jason came all the way to Okinawa from Southern California to have their dream wedding at the Lazor Chapel here in Okinawa.

Lily originally had contacted me through my blog about having me as their photographer for their wedding here on Okinawa and also to join them back in the States to continue shooting at their reception at Disneyland hotel and location shooting in Disneyland itself. Of course I happily obliged!

Had plenty of other fun while in Orange, LA for the week like visit the Oakley head quarters which Ive always wanted to go to, check out Universal studios and party like a rock star, but I'll save that for a following blog post.

Firstly Here's a few from their wedding here in Okinawa at Lazor chapel in Alivila resort.

Next onto the reception at Disneyland resort hotel with a special guest appearance by Mickey & Mini Mouse. It was great fun to meet everyone friends and families that came to visit from around the world for this very special event.

Then the next day back to Disneyland for rides and shooting around the park. 

Disneyland a fantastic place for location shooting as there`s something cool & picturesque everywhere you look but the obvious problem is all the people. To make matters harder I didn't have any assistants with me holding my lights or checking hair/make up etc... so it was a challenge to set up shots and light them without getting stands in the way or having too many people in the shots etc.. It requires quite a bit of timing and patience to do these kinds of shots in such a busy area where its hard to even walk at times.
We ended up shooting and having fun right through until closing at just after 12am at night. It was a long day but lots of fun as you can probably see.
Made some great friends while I was there and can't wait to get back to see them again soon!
Thank you very much to all of you for making my trip there more memorable than I could have imagined. You know who you are!

If your interested in having a destination wedding or would like me to come to your country to photograph your wedding or location shoot drop me an email here for details.

Barry & Heidi Prewedding all day shoot and tour of Okinawa

Hey everyone! Its been a crazy month with two trips to the US for shoots and back to back location shoots here in Okinawa, a photo gallery/cafe opening in American village and a sponsorship with a camera accessory company in the works. Needless to say I haven't been left with too much time for updating my blog or website unfortunately. But I plan to rectify that from this month.

Here's a slideshow of Barry & Heidi from Hong Kong's pre wedding photo shoot here in Okinawa we did last month. It is my biggest package consisting of up to 8 hours of shooting and Okinawa sightseeing.

Here's a few more samples from the day.

Some of the locations used here were Maeda Misaki, Zanpa Misaki, Gala, Bios on the Hill, Morima chapel. 
The package runs for 150,000yen. Mail me for more details!
