Grease-themed engagement shoot | Emory & Tomo

Going for a retro, American vibe in greater Tokyo wasn't the easiest endeavor, but with a lot of planning and creativity on Emory's part, this Grease-themed engagement shoot came together.

Connecticut couples' photos: Laura and Jorge

Connecticut couples' photos: Laura and Jorge

I had so much fun working with these two! Laura and Jorge are Texas natives and moved to Connecticut just a few weeks ago, so they wanted to take photos during their first New England fall to send back to family as Christmas cards. I absolutely loved that they wanted to wear the cutest ugly Christmas sweaters I've ever seen for their photos -- it's testament to how fun-loving and laid back they were, even as we shot in the cold.

Tokyo Proposal: Emory and Tomo

Tomo and I spent about six weeks planning this proposal (and I spent about six weeks avoiding Emory to make sure I didn't spill the beans!), which was at the famous Ashikaga Flower Park. Tomo put a lot of thought into the details of his proposal; his drive to make it perfect really is testament to how much he loves Emory. I've gotten to know both Emory and Tomo during my time in Japan, and I've seen firsthand how much they care for each other and who well their personalities complement each other. I'm so excited for their future together!
