We had heard about Hokkaido, Okinawa, Cherry blossom and Maple leaves for pre wedding photo shooting in Japan. But my boyfriend Raymond and I chose Yufuin of Oita prefecture in Kyushu, and went there for our pre wedding.
 
2 months ago, we started to prepare for our marriage and had joined to wedding expo to clarify our idea and what we want. Then we were interested in oversea wedding, but consider about both Korea and Japan for our choices. These two choices are totally different actually. Korea: Mainly indoor shooting, make up and wedding dresses are so good, and beautiful photo retouching. Japan: Mainly outdoor shooting, focus nature, and they don’t edit photo much.
 
Both we love to travel to Japan and have interest in Japanese pre wedding more. But we will be satisfied with Korean style make up too. When we were still considering, we found a booth of Fukuoka and Oita and immediately ask about package details. Finally we decide to plan to head to Fukuoka in our Christmas holidays. This company is the agent established by Japanese in Hong Kong. They had been working with Japanese photographer in wedding expo, and female CEO came to join and she was supporting on the booth. In bride’s (my) mind, I’m ready to go to Fukuoka. So we went there back in next day to confirm. CEO of studio was a very nice lady, gave us some privileges too.
 
The package we selected is $13,xxx included 1 dress 1 tuxedo and pair of KIMONO (Uchikake), 200 photos, basic adjustment of color contrast and brightness. Photo album is the option.
Afterward, we went to agent’s office and told them about our idea in English. Boss was always very patient and kind, even gave us helpful information for our travel. We had been kept contact on whatsapp until we left. They sent us outfits photos too and let us select in advance.
 
A day before our shooting, we went to the Oita’s salon to confirm outfits and whole schedule, also talked to photographer to share our idea (mostly Raymond’s idea). We brought some reference. It makes much easier to make photographer understand what we want. The season is autumn. Leaves ware red but there was no snow yet. As Raymond wanted Japanese tasteful landscape, photographer served shooting at bamboo forest, Torii, Temple and Lake Kinrin. Behind the studio, there was small chapel that we can take photo at.
 
We received all photos less than a month after shooting.
 
There is no doubt that service and attitude of Japanese company is absolutely 100 out of 100. The female CEO took much care of us. She worries about our dinner as we arrive at hotel late, brought us shopping mall to get thick pants as Raymond worn thin one, arranged Cantonese speaking interpreter as we are from Hong Kong. There were more care for us.
