Natalie & Yoshiro: Traditional Shinto Wedding


A late April wedding brought Jackson and Gillian to Kanazawa, Japan where they had the pleasure of photographing Natalie and Yoshiro’s traditional Shinto ceremony. Kanazawa is located centrally on the main island of Japan, with views of both the mountains and the sea.

The ceremony took place at Oyama shrine, among serene strolling gardens with ponds and bridges. Natalie’s traditional headdress, ornate kimonos and gowns created a striking focal point. View their slideshow for more photos.
