Takako Transformed.

Tuesday, March 12, 2013

Samm Blake's photographs of the transformation of a Tokyo bride are spellbinding. Though I've been to Japan many times, I've never seen a traditional Japanese wedding - Steve and Takako's offers a bewitching introduction. (See more on Samm's blog, here.)


Visit Samm Blake's website, here. (In particular, her 2012 photographic round-up is not to be missed.) Have a wonderful Tuesday!

Oh how beautiful! I love that in the Japanese ceremony it starts out with just them and then the family arrives.

How cool to have two different weddings. It's so awesome of the families to participate.
