Kira and Zach are the type of people that embrace everyone they meet with open arms. You instantly feel like family, and like you've known them for years. They are the type of people that give you hope for the good in this world, and the type of couple that makes you believe in true love. I met Kira and Zach through a videographer friend of mine, Alex with Your Everyday Epic Films. He was setting up a styled engagement shoot at Yokohama Bay with a real couple and invited me to tag along to photograph it! I honestly almost said no, because I already had a really busy week of shoots, and driving up H1 West during rush hour traffic isn't the most ideal thing (if you know, you know). But something told me I should just go for it, and it would be worth it. I'm sooo happy I said yes and got the chance to meet this amazing couple. Their wedding day was approaching quickly, and they hadn't secured a photographer or videographer yet. Long story short, they ended up booking both me and Alex for the big day, and it was the most tear filled, fun, exciting, and beautiful wedding day. They were surrounded with so much love and support (and 250 friends and family) and everyone helped them pull off such a special day. I feel so blessed and lucky that I was able to meet these two and document their love story.
Would you believe me if I told you this photo wasn't photoshopped, and yes I got 24 people not blinking and smiling at the same time?
After dinner and toasts, Zach and Kira had each planned a surprise for the other! And they were not disappointed.
Then, it was time to celebrate!
Mahalo Kira and Zach for having me ❤️
