It's been numerous times in Japan for the assignments. We had a shoot in Tokyo as well while we transit, yet it's a first time at Shirakawa for engagement portrait assignment. Shirakawa-Go ( 白川郷 "White River Old-District" ) is one of UNESCO's World Heritage Sites built in the middle of 19th century located in northwest part of Gifu Perfection, central of Japan.
As we had the shoot during the end of autumn, there' re still some red maple leaf left but less than earlier. We took 4.5 hours to completed the shoot including make-up and styling, ended it with the one night stay at traditional Wada house ( Gassho-Zukuri ).
Awe-inspiring experienced. Thanks Vanessa, Terry and Zoey !
