恋物語 = "Koimonogatari" means "a love story" in Japanese. It is what we strive to capture every time we photograph our wedding clients. We are a creative team and have worked together since we graduated from college. Our photo clients are mostly magazines and commercial advertisers. We photograph weddings because we like bringing our editorial style to people (instead of businesses). We want to celebrate love, life, family, and friends. Because in 50 years no one is going to remember the magazine photos or the ads we shot. But, our client's children are going to see the photos we took of their parents and imagine the good times. We are all young and beautiful at heart and we just want to capture bit of that vibrance in pictures.
