This time, it’s a surprise proposal photo shoot. The plan is to propose at the most famous Yasaka Pagoda in the Gion area of Kyoto. The customer rented a kimono, and I was standing by, anticipating the moment when they finished changing into the kimono. While waiting for them on the way to the Yasaka Pagoda, I was still nervous. With a surprise proposal, there is no room for mistakes as you have to pretend to be a tourist and follow them or suddenly take many photos. But I think the happy expressions on everyone’s faces when the proposal is successful are priceless. This time, the proposal was successful and we continued to take pictures in the Gion area. We took lots of photos, including pictures with the ring and pictures with the cherry blossoms, which had already bloomed. They liked the photos, and I also felt very happy taking them. I am truly grateful for the many requests for proposal photo shoots. It’s really rewarding to be able to assist not only with creating memories of their trips but also with other significant events. It’s already the cherry blossom season! I’m looking forward to taking pictures!
