About 10 days ago, I have held the surprised proposal photoshooting tour in Enkoji temple, Kyoto. I got a message from a guy about surprised proposal photoshooting before a month and he wanted me to capture of the moment. We were making a plan where to do and searched the best place and told each other. Kyoto has many amazing places such as Yasaka shrine, Kiyomizudera temple, Kinkakuji temple (Golden temple), Heian jingu, Kyoto imperial place and more. Everyplace are not same but traditional and authentic place and great for Photoshooting. Some places are very popular and crowded, So we chose Enkoji temple where is not known well by tourists because it is a little far from Kyoto city and we need to take bus from Kyoto station for an hour or take train and walk for 20 mins. Actually I have never been there but checked some pictures on the web, It looked very beautiful. We thought Enkoji temple is the best spot for surprised proposal.
On that day, Unfortunately It was raining… We checked weather report many times but it was not good weather. Enkoji temple open at 9am, So we met there around 8:50am and waited for opening. There are nobody and very quiet and peaceful. Many trees, moss plants, Bamboos, traditional buildings and traditional Japanese rock garden ( Zen Garden), Everything was very very beautiful. I took some pictures with Japanese garden and trees and was looking for good spot for surprised proposal. I found a bridge looked very nice and tried making him to propose there. I and he were very nervous (Of corse he was much more nervous than me Hahaha) but it was succeed!!! I was able to capture some of the moments and it was awesome happy time. They looked so happy and I was happy too!! Thanks to them, I got great new memories. I was so glad to take their pictures in Enkoji temple. Hope they come back in the future and see them again!!:)
