The weather was terrible on this day, we had planned to have a full day shoot, but due to wind and rain had to change to a single location with a quick beach shoot. Derek & Joanna were so flexible and with a little photoshop we managed to capture some images of their pre wedding trip to Okinawa.
I always try to give my clients the best options on the day of their photo shoot, often that can mean working around the weather and rather then force a bad situation we made this shortened version of my pre wedding photo tour into a fun mini session.
What a great day to be out in Okinawa, Lujain & Redwan, came all the way from Egypt to Okinawa for their honeymoon. So full of love and just super nice people they made the day of photoshooting a pure joy for me.
Not only did we travel from waterfall to ocean, castles to gardens, but we had a lot of fun along the way, and more over became fast friends in the process. They both fell in love with Okinawa and were even googling universities here in order to make Okinawa a new home.
Days like this are what I live for as a bridal photographer 🙂
Really had a “harasho” kinda day with this great couple. After rescheduling the shoot due to heavy rain, Okinawa blessed us with a perfect day to shoot some incredible images for this full day bridal shoot. I love spending my days meeting amazing people and helping to create bridal images that will last their lifetime…but when you also make great new friends in the process…that is what I call a perfect day 🙂
“That was an amazing experience, the day we spent with Adam was like an exotic trip to the very special parts of Okinawa. It was interesting and really cool even just to talk to Adam when driving or walking from one spot to another and he is full of really creative ideas of how to make a good photo. And now we have 100+ shots unlike other we had before, thanks to Adam. Alexander & Katerina.
Это был потрясающий опыт, невероятное приключение в самом сердце Окинавы – в диких джунглях! Целый водопад ощущений, причем водопад в прямом, и в переносном смысле! Адам потрясающий собеседник, кроме всего прочего, с ним было интересно провести этот незабываемый день. Мы сделали огромное количество снимков: в джунглях, на скалах на фоне океанских просторов, в зарослях тростника и конечно среди белого кораллового песка – на пляжах Окинавы. Адам полон идей, которые он генерирует с невероятной скоростью, ради хорошего кадра он готов залезть и в воду, и на скалу. Фото, которые мы получили – это сказка, которая останется с нами навсегда! Наши такие яркие и невероятные воспоминания о медовом месяце среди тропических просторов Окинавы. Спасибо, Адам! Александр и Екатерина.”
Over the past 6 months, I had the pleasure of photographing with this awesome couple and their daughter. When Brandy & Josh first contacted me, they were preparing to become parents for the first time.
Then little Madison arrived 🙂 and we took her for a swim at the beach.
Then it was time for this great lil’ family to leave Okinawa, so we went to a beautiful village and shot a few Okinawa styled shots so they would always remember their time here and the new beginnings it brought them 🙂
What a wonderful day this was, the weather was brilliant and Chris & Grace were a pleasure to work with 🙂
Most pre wedding photo plans will have the couple running around like crazy all day, often working on a pre designed timetable…The reason is that the photography crew are not local to Okinawa and so have planned the day in advance. But, that kind of rigid planning often works against the flow of the day and doesn’t allow for the changes in the weather, wind conditions etc. I have worked as a location photographer in Okinawa for nearly 8 years and over that time, have learnt what places work best in what conditions, which allows me to make sure that my clients are at the best locations at the best time of day, to ensure that not only will their images be stunning, but also that they can relax and enjoy the experience.
I want your day with me to be a relaxed and enjoyable one, so that you are not left sunburnt and exhausted.

A few months ago, Columbia records Japan asked me to edit and tune up a video they had shoot for former Morning Musume member Abe Natsumi.
The song was all about finding your way through life’s challenges and moving toward brighter things, however the video that was shot in Tokyo had a somewhat dark feeling and so they looked to me to add my outlook and style to re edit the video and bring out a warmer feeling as the song progressed.
I decided to shoot some timelapse footage and also some warm natural scenes from Okinawa to mix into the video and then bring the mood to a calm and complete feeling with footage of the stars rotating in the night sky.
Another amazing full day pre-wedding location photo shoot with Amber & Stephen here in beautiful Okinawa, Japan.
Amber & Stephen didn’t have a lot of time for their visit to Japan, so my full day shoot was focused on not only capturing amazing pre wedding images of this awesome couple, but also showing them as much of the beauty of Okinawa as we could pack into a single day.
From a private waterfall, to a rainforest, perfect private beaches and even a touch of the night life in American village we filled this photo shoot with a lot of awesome memories.
