I met Andrew and Yumi earlier this year. Their story is so sweet. She is from Japan, and he is a world traveler. They met at Union University in Jackson, TN. I attend the Germantown campus for my masters program. So we had an instant connection.
As a photographer, a couple like these two are a dream. She is such a gorgeous girl... One of the most gorgeous girls I've ever photographed. I'm so inspired by Asian culture, so a Japanese bride had me absolutely beside myself. Then you add Andrew... or should I say... Chris Pine. These two are bound to have beautiful babies.
Andrew's dad officiated the ceremony. It was such an emotional ceremony. Andrew's face when he saw his bride walking down the aisle to him was priceless. Then, at the reception, Yumi (who is an incredible pianist) did a piano duet with her mom and then did a duet with Andrew. Andrew played the guitar in their duet. The song they played was Taylor Swift's Love Story, hence my song choice for their video below.
This video is a little more laid back that I typically do. But that is Andrew and Yumi. Laid back. They just wanted to get married. Their family and friends came in from around the world not only to watch these two become Mr. & Mrs.
I'm so honored that they chose me to capture their big day. I hope you enjoy!
