Kyoko, the Superstar!

I’m in Scotland at the moment. I’m wearing every piece of clothing I brought with me and I’m still freezing. Unfortunately, there’s no fireplace at our current location or I’d be curled up in front of it.

We're heading north today and out of internet range, so I thought I’d do one more post before the holidays.

I've been working away at our new website (due out in the new year)!! My last few days have been spent gathering together Kyoko’s images for her section of the site and I can't stop thinking just how amazingly talented she is! Her work from this last year (and years before) is absolutely gorgeous!! I’m so proud of her and feel so honored to have her shooting for my company.  Even more, I feel lucky to have her as such a dear old friend. Our friendship and working relationship passed the 13 year mark this year!!! :)

This post is a little shout out to Kyoko in all her awesomeness. If you’ve booked her to shoot your wedding this coming 2011 year, you are a lucky one!







Also, make sure you pick up the current issue of Wedluxe Magazine (on stands now):

Kyoko’s work is featured on pg82-87 in a 6 page fashion spread she shot in Paris last summer.

Beautiful, right?
