Shooting date 18th October 2018
We had a very beautiful wedding at Eines Villa di Nozze Okinawa.
The moment we arrived at the hotel for the wedding preparation, we were greeted by very friendly staff. The hotel was modern, bright, and beautiful. The villa that we prepared our attire and makeup was also beautiful. We didn’t feel rushed and had time to enjoy the beach front view.
The hair/makeup artist was truly professional and amazing. I had a very tired night before and she still made me looked flawless! Everyone was very helpful and accomodating in arranging the ceremony for us. The Chapel was much more stunning than I expected. Although our wedding was small, we felt much happiness in the Chapel because all the staff were so friendly and joyful. The pastor was also very friendly and easy to work with. The photographer was very professional in capturing the best moments with the best backdrops. We were lucky to have the sun set captured in our memories.
Thank you Nagata san for arranging every detail for us over emails/text messages and helping us create the wedding we dreamt of.

It is our pleasure to meet Nagata San at wedding expo! We planned to have pre-wedding photo shooting in Japan and we had some ideas of the shooting location. We were presented the promotion packages, details of shooting plans, procedures and so on.
As a bride-to-be, I of course preferred comparing with other vendors before making any decision. Later, we browsed Ema Mino website and found that there were lots of local studio based in different parts of Japan. However, none of the studio in Okayama where we would like to visit and have pre-wedding shooting. After expressing our thoughts and request through email and meeting, Ema Mino successfully contacted a local studio in Okayama which could provide the ideal package and helped us to arrange so that the photographer we admired could help us on the shooting date.
We had a wonderful photo shooting experience in Okayama, the makeup artists and photographer Kenji San were very friendly and professional. The photos are beautiful and the album was exquisite and of high quality which was out of our expectation. We really love it! Thank you Ema Mino! And big thank you to Nagata San for helping us a lot throughout the whole process from first approach, arranging for shooting, album editing and more!
Thank you very much again for communicating with us! And as I remember, you mentioned that you would like to ask for our consent to use our photos as promo. We definitely would like to! Please feel free to use our pictures! 🙂

Original comment in Chinese
We were planning to have pre wedding photo shooting in Japan, and found Ema Mino on internet one month advance before we left. Their website show many sample photos taken in Japan. After the meeting with them we clearly understood the details of the service and price. Thank you very much for support and arrangement for our pre wedding in Japan, also appreciate to continuous contact on email and whatsapp to let us know the day of our fitting and shooting.
We would like to thank to Kyoto kojitsu photography crew too for their service. The photographer Mr. Hiroaki Kakiuchi, assistant and make up artist had worked hard to take our photo nicely even in 39 degree temperature. The photographer even came into the river to take photos with good angles. Whole shooting procedure was quite smooth.

We found Ema Mino online and on a whim we sent in the enquiry form asking for more information. Teppei San replied shortly and invited us to visit their office for a detailed discussion. We came out from the meeting with a consensual “this is it!”.
Prior to finding out about Ema Mino and meeting Teppei San, we deliberated for a long time on which photographer to go for and where should the shooting take place for our pre-wedding. We had looked at numerous local photographers and destination packages but none of that felt more right than when we looked at what Teppei San had to offer. Japan has been our favorite place to go to and is a special place for both of us. We picked Shiga (out of the many options) for the simple fact that we have never been there and the shooting locations looked amazing – it did NOT disappoint!
The whole process was absolutely seamless and the shop offered the most stunning Kimonos and Hakamas. The several locations we went to were all so quaint and quiet that we were able to have a great time enjoying the experience (rather than having to pose among crowds of people). The crew was also tremendously helpful and delightful, going out of their way to make us feel comfortable, well fed and well pampered on the long day of shooting. It was truly one of the most memorable days for us and honestly, out of all the decisions we’ve made for our wedding thus far, this was the best one yet 🙂 the photos also came very much on time, and Teppei San is always helpful and super responsive. We have just gotten the final printed album and canvas – quality of both are just top notch.
We’ll be sure to continue recommending Ema Mino to all our friends who’d like to make pre-wedding memories in Japan. We could not be more grateful ourselves 🙂
