AS JAPAN ELOPEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER & GUIDE, I BRING THIS VISION TO LIFE FOR
COUPLES who elope in japan EVERY DAY.
I WILL HELP YOU CRAFT, PLAN, & DOCUMENT YOUR DREAM ELOPEMENT EXPERIENCE.
WHY WOULD YOU CHOOSE TO ELOPE in JAPAN?
Just thinking about countless iterations of composing a guest list and seating arrangements was terrifying. It immediately started to feel it wouldn’t have been a day for us, but for other people. I have often heard many people talking about how they don’t even remember what went on during their wedding day and how they were too exhausted to have a good time, how they had to pose for countless boring pictures just to make everyone happy. They were so tired talking to everyone and didn’t have time for themselves. Many people think DIY wedding is fun, but it’s a myth, and they learn that way too late. Elopement is way less planning and there is no stress.
- Asuka & Daisuke
My friend thought because she only had 40 guests at the traditional wedding it wouldn’t be so hard. Later she confessed to me that she was glad it was over. This is definitely not the feeling we wanted to have after our wedding. We agreed that it was better not to have a wedding at all. We wanted the most memorable experience possible, something fun, unique and special. My husband said, small wedding for a big memory. I loved that. We both wanted something that when we remember it, we wish we could do it a million times over. We both wanted much more than what a traditional wedding could offer us.
So happy we found Henry and chose to elope in Japan!
- RIE & MASAHIRO
My partner and I are shy couple and we can’t relax and enjoy being the center of attention. We believe our big day should be just ours, not the big presentation for everyone else. Many people say there is a lot of family drama at the weddings. We don’t want uncomfortable situations for our special day. We love to explore and adventure and we want a new adventurous experience to mark the most important day for us and the beginning of our new life together.
- Nanako & SEIYA
We are both shy couple and don’t like to be the center of attention, but we become alive out in nature. To us it seemed like the whole wedding industry is made just to take our money, without offering a lifelong memorable experience. People seem to lose sight of what this day is truly about - two people promising their life to each other. It’s not about fancy decorations and making parents and grandparents happy that I got married the same way as them. It’s my time, my life. Elopement fits our relationship so well.
- YUKA & SHUICHI
JUST BECAUSE UNTIL NOW MANY PEOPLE BLINDLY FOLLOW THE “TRADITIONAL” STYLE, THERE IS NO PREDEFINED WAY HOW WEDDINGS “SHOULD BE”.
Through experience of working with couples every day I have found the secret how to have a stress-free, very personal wedding experience that you will deeply enjoy every single moment of and never regret!

WHAT IS IT LIKE TO HAVE
AN ELOPEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER AND GUIDE
HEAR WHAT MY COUPLES SAY
"We live in traditional community, all my friends before us got married in a traditional way, often just because they were expected to do so. I can’t say enough great things about Henry. He was recommended for an engagement portrait session but then I realized he can help me make my dream of elopement in Japan come true to have more meaningful wedding day.
Henry started working way before any picture was taken. Because he wanted to truly get to know me and my partner, learn about what we like, recommended other vendors that matched our style, and even prepared a suggested itinerary for our whole wedding day I felt well taken care of. I often heard stories from my friends about their wedding day being totally taken over by wedding planners and venue staff, Henry gave us all the freedom we wanted to include all our requests.
We said our vows with a most epic view of Mt. Fuji in the background. Henry hiked with us all day and captured every magical moment. Every picture is so beautiful, I cried just seeing them on the camera screen. He totally let us be the way we truly and naturally are. Henry was so helpful with hiking tips, encouraging us, as we are not so frequently used to hiking. He is such a nice guy. He put so much effort without being even the slightest bit intrusive, respecting our privacy and intimacy of the day. I will recommend him to all my friends who still have to get married. I want to do it all over again!"
