Vivi and Mika in Shirakawago


In early March I had another engagement session in Shirakawago with this beautiful couple, Vivi and Mika. They are from Jakarta, visiting Japan with friends. They were absolutely wonderful to work with--happy and very much in love, and just so beautiful. They made my job very easy! I was a little worried about the snow having melted, because the weather was gorgeous in Nagoya that week... but even though it was an absolutely beautiful day, there was still a lovely blanket of snow on the ground to add a nice winter touch to our scenery. It was perfect! Here are my favorites from this gorgeous pre-wedding session.
