The beginning of March, Early blooming Cherry blossoms full bloomed at few spots in Japan. My friend told me great place to take photos with this Cherry blossoms in Kyoto. This place is 15 min walk from Keihan Yodo station and so many Cherry blossoms were blooming along a river, So I decided to hold surprised proposal photoshooting here.
A guy wanted to get his proposal photos in Kyoto and we talked where the best place. I told him about Cherry blossoms in Kyoto and sent some photos of this place. He liked and wanted to give a flower bouquet to his girlfriend when he propose. I ordered flower bouquet and brought for proposal phtooshooting on that day.
Our plan is that I ask them like ‘I am looking for free model and would like to take your photos with Cherry blossoms’ and take some shots and then he propose her many Cherry blossoms on back ground. They were already there when I arrived and found them and asked. I was worrying his girlfriend accept or not but she was fine to be taken photos. We talked about traveling in Japan and took some shots. Some Japanese people hung out this are and saw Cherry blossoms and I was looking for good place for surprise proposal. I found a nice nobody spot and made her turn around and I took her photos. He took flower bouquet out from my big back pack and went down on his knee to propose with the bouquet. She turned around and saw him and surprised and laughed so much. He gave the bouquet and showed a RING. She looked very surprised and happy and said YES! They hugged and it was very happy moment. I captured many nice moments and took some shots with Cherry blossoms after proposal. I was so happy to take their photos and help his proposal. I hope they come to Japan in other season and took my photoshooting tour then. Thank you and see you again!!!
