YOUR ELOPEMENT IN JAPAN GUIDE
I WILL HELP YOU IMAGINE AND BRING TO LIFE YOUR WEDDING DAY DREAM
I'M more than just your photographer
I WILL BE YOUR WEDDING PLANNER, ADVENTURE PARTNER,
TOUR GUIDE, AND BEST FRIEND...
When you hire me for your elopement in Japan you’re getting so much more than just a photographer. I'll be your wedding planner who helps you find the most epic spot to get married, your adventure partner, tour guide, and the person who helps you haul your essentials up a mountain or down the beach. Your best friend and cheerleader.
I will share everything I learned from designing and documenting 200+ sessions and elopements including what to do, what not to do, and everything you never even thought of! You’ll get as much help & guidance as you need to create your fully customized dream elopement day that’s 100% YOU.
Almost all of my work you've seen are in locations that our couples didn’t even know existed until they contacted us. We match every couple with the setting and location that’s just perfect for them. That’s why we send every couple we work with an elopement location idea list based on our extensive travel experience. We’ll also help you design, plan, and document the full story your elopement in Japan.
WHY DO I CARE SO MUCH?
Because when your elopement day, location, and timing are just right—your photos turn out incredible!
YOU DESERVE THE BEST EXPERIENCE, AND THAT MATTERS MOST TO ME.

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!"

THIS IS ME, HENRY, AN ADVENTUROUS PHOTOGRAPHER, READY TO MAKE YOUR ELOPEMENT DREAM A REALITY.
My whole life is an adventure, whether I plan it or not. I’m originally from Europe, small town in the middle of Mediterranean. I love to get off the beaten path and enjoy the powerful simplicity of just being present in the magnificence of nature.
Life has led me to Japan and I'm here to make your elopement in Japan a dream come true!
I believe that everyone has the right to experience the freedom to be themselves - it’s the most liberating experience and will make you a happy person.
You will get my 120%
There is nothing I wouldn’t do for you to get you to feel that on your wedding day. Having that special someone that you can share that feeling with is for me the ultimate meaning of a true relationship. Whether you want to get on the glacier, hike up the top of the mountain, sail the bluest sea, or eat the most amazing home cooked dish on a deserted island, I will get you there and capture your story.
I believe that the elopement or the intimate wedding is the best way to have the most unforgettable and meaningful wedding experience. It is my passion to empower you to make this brave decision. That's why I’m super psyched to get to know you and help you plan this awesome adventure together.
Choosing a photographer for your elopement in Japan
WHAT MAKES ME DIFFERENT?
HOW I STAND OUT FROM YOUR AVERAGE PHOTOGRAPHER IN JAPAN?
I LIVE IN JAPAN, BUT I’m not Japanese. I understand Western mindset and expectations and I will be your bridge to this amazing culture and people where I now live.
I have experience. 98% of my work is shooting outside, more than any other photographer in Japan. I set standards by exploring locations and introducing new places. Every couple is unique and you deserve a unique place, not some run down or fake spot that hundreds of couples have been to before.
I have a fresh outlook. Because I’m a foreigner in Japan, I see old things with new eyes. I make every location look special and introduce elements that LOCAL PEOPLE wouldn’t expect to find there.
I don’t have a pattern. You are unique and I deliver unique experience to each couple each time by default, not a pricey add-on.
I have no rules in my sessions. For a day, you can be anything you ever wanted to be without the fear of judgment for doing something out of ordinary. I welcome it all. With me, you can be your true self.

YOU CAN HAVE EVERYTHING:
Elope just with your partner
Invite a few of your closest people
Invite your closest family and friends
The difference is that only the people who truly care and support you will be there for you. Isn’t this what the wedding is supposed to be about? It’s not entertainment or a performance that you should put on for others.
It is entering a new life with your loved one. It is an intimate, meaningful, experience that should be personal and stress-free.
There is no second chance. Don’t miss out on the real meaning of a wedding just to satisfy the selfish tradition. Don’t be afraid of the change. Me and my team will work with you to fit in everything you dream of and more.
