Audrey and Yonglai Kyoto/Osaka PreWedding

Really glad to come back Kyoto/Osaka for the last trip of this year as I fell in love with Kyoto after coming last month. It is an unexpectedly beautiful and quaint city in Japan.

This time round with Audrey, Yonglai and Benjamin!

On the first night, we had the guys’ birthday dinner and Ben got his sushi cake surprise heh! 2nd year fulfilling his unusual request.

Last year was a mcnuggets cake haha

Audrey loves takoyaki and we chanced upon a shop that sells really fluffy and delicious takoyakis. So yummy that our initial plan of having this as snack and then snack on other foods became us coming back to have the whole dinner

Spent 2 hours dolling Audrey up to in the end rain thus the night shoot was cancelled.

Not wanting to waste the efforts, took a crash camera course with Ben haha

Taken at our rooms corridor

Below 2 photos taken by me as I recently bought a camera. Had always wanted to get 1 for work as I hoped to take better quality photos of my clients.

Got the sony a7ii with f1.8 50mm lens recommended by Hannah.

Hope to know how to better utilise this camera one day soon!
