As a tourist at Kurashiki, mainly shooting architectural details, I came upon this couple along with a small entourage. They were doing a wedding photoshoot with the requisite photographer, makeup artists and perhaps the couple’s immediate family.
This is what traditional Japanese wedding kimonos look like, both for the man and women. And while an actual wedding features multiple outfit changes, which includes American-style white gown and tux, I suppose the kimono was more in keeping at this historic site.
I shot a few photos, first from a far and then I got closer for better framing. The Olympus 14-150mm lens also afforded me the option of zooming to a 150mm equivalent, featured here. This is the second wedding photoshoot that I “crashed”. I was in Hawaii last year and shot this one at the Iolani Palace.
