Bobby & Dominique wanted a simple and beautiful outdoor wedding here in Okinawa for just their family and close friends. A simple and affordable wedding ceremony is a hard thing to come across in Okinawa, the resorts are everywhere offering the dream wedding, but they don’t seem to cater for people who are looking for a more down to earth wedding day experience… That is where I enter the scene.
After meeting with Dominique and Bobby we worked out a very simple plan, just their family and friends, an outdoor setting, a minister to perform their service and of course me as their wedding photographer for both the ceremony and some post wedding location photos… On the day it rained all morning, but literally 30mins before we were all set to meet, the clouds broke and ran for the horizon and it was a beautiful and amazing afternoon wedding by the sea.
If you are interested in having your wedding here in Okinawa without all the bells, whistles and stresses that can come with designing a wedding in a foreign country, contact me today.
I love these two people, in the span of a few short hours we went from strangers to friends and had a lot of fun in the process.
Rebecca & Sam were not only great fun to work with, but I was also able to play a small part in their engagement. Although they had already decided that they would get married someday soon…Sam had yet to formally propose…So for Rebecca’s birthday he flew her to Okinawa, booked a full day location photo shoot with me and took a knee with a beautiful engagement ring in his hand.
We also decided to shoot some video on this photo tour and see how it looked… hope you emjoy.
Here is a short sample our new video service for location tours…contact us for details today!

I was contracted through Kafuu resort to shoot a wedding ceremony for a young U.S Marine couple. Aaron was preparing to deploy and his fiance Madeline flew to Okinawa from the U.S for the wedding. I have shot hundreds of wedding for resorts in Okinawa, but this was the first time to shoot a wedding with all the traditions of the U.S.M.C, it was a lot of fun to say the least.
Madeline was radiant, for a young bride in a foreign land surrounded by her husbands second family (his fellow marines) I can only imagine she felt out of sorts, but she was so happy and in love that her smile lit up the room.
The marines have many traditions and in many ways are very much a family, a USMC wedding is very much an induction into that family for the bride: The display of arms, dress uniforms and the traditional slap on the bum from the sabre are something I had never seen before, but they all seem so fitting.

Julie & Alex are a picture perfect couple, both young attractive and fun loving. Julie is stationed on Okinawa with the U.S Navy while Alex is soon to be stationed here as a pilot with USMC, a marine and a squid, but I think they’ll make it work
Alex contacted me about shooting their engagement photos, it was very short notice as he had only just popped the question and his leave was coming to an end, so we made a quick plan and headed straight out on location to capture this very special moment in their lives.
Here are some of the photos we came up with on our Okinawan engagement photo shoot.

When Frank contacted me about doing an anniversary photo shoot with his wife, I thought we would be doing a nice couples location shoot, but Frank had other ideas… Basically he thought it would be a nice gift to not only take some romantic and fun photos together as a couple, but rather order a professional hair and make up artist and get his wife all dolled up and ready for a private glamor photo shoot also.
I called in one of my make up artists and we headed over to help Chelsie look her best for a romantic couple shoot at the beach and also a killer swimwear fashion shoot…Not that Chelsie needed much to get ready, she is a natural beauty and very fit, a little make up and some hair setting and we were off….anyway enough from me check out the photos we got on one of Okinawa’s more beautiful beaches.

Not only are Eric and Gayle one of the most awesome couples I have meet in Okinawa, they are both Marines stationed here…An interesting dynamic for sure.
Eric & Gayle contacted me about organizing a vow renewal framed against the natural beauty of Okinawa, it was not only my honor to be their photographer, but also to witness two awesome people deeply in love with each other, unaffected by the usual stresses of a marriage… They seriously are like relationship superheroes!
Anyway, enough of me ranting on…let the photos tell the story.
Recently I have been so busy shooting that I found it necessary to take a few days off from the camera and focus on editing…yes the busy season is most definitely here for me and my fellow Okinawa based photographers…however, one of the joys of working for yourself is the setting your own hours and I have been using that to capture a few landscape and seascape images around the island this last few weeks…hope you enjoy the many faces Okinawa can have over the course of a few days.
