Tips

  • Purchase a JR Pass if you’re traveling between cities to save tons of money.

  • Purchase a PASMO card for easy travel on trains, subways, and buses.

  • Renting portable wifi (like Pupuru) is super affordable and easy to pick up/return at the airport.

Jupin & Resham's Engagement

When Jupin asked me to shoot her and Resham’s engagement session, she said she wanted a sunset shoot in traditional Indian outfits with props. I had no idea what this would entail, but everything turned out beautifully! Shout out to her entire family for helping with the shoot, with everyone directing, styling, and lugging heavy props back and forth through grass burs. We were definitely chasing light by the end of it since we couldn’t bring the props down to the main preserve and had to wing it, but everyone made it work!

Watters Bridesmaids Dresses

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Watters. The opinions and text are all mine.

Earlier this year, my bridesmaids and I visited the Watters headquarters to pick out their bridesmaids dresses! In May, they received all of their dresses, and this past weekend, I got to shoot a few of them in it!

This was one of my favorite shoots all YEAR because I got to capture my beautiful bridesmaids in their dresses for the first time! Not everyone could make it, but I'm happy to have been able to shoot Jen, Angela, and Kat!

I really loved that everyone got to choose a dress they liked from the Watters/Wtoo collections also! I wanted to be sure that everyone felt confident in how they look and feel in their dresses in September!
