I love that Yumi becomes part of the family! She is so enjoyable to work with and has such a great personality. I knew she was a perfect fit from the first time we spoke. I felt like she was genuinely interested in my wedding vision. I liked her personable approach and I knew she would make my family and I feel comfortable. Not once on our wedding day did I feel like it was a production. We felt comfortable, inspired and had so much fun!
I'm not totally comfortable in front of a camera but Yumi's warmth and cheerful nature immediately put me at ease. She made me feel confident and comfortable, and the end result was photographs that were bright and beautiful, and that captured my personality. It's so nice to look at a photograph and feel that someone has really captured who you are at your best. I've received so many compliments on the photos she's done for me and I'd gladly work with her again.
After meeting Yumi and working with her, it's clear Yumi's work is a reflection of true artistic giftedness and also the kind of person she is. Yumi's positive disposition makes the whole process more fun...my kiddos fell in love with her on the spot (and often ask when we get to see her again!). Yumi has given us some of the very best photos of our little family, which we've framed for our home and used for baby announcements, grandparents' gifts, and Christmas cards. Yumi consistently captures both our kiddos' little personalities and the "big picture" of our family life in the most beautiful way.
