Turning Japanese in a Harajuku stylee – A quirky and kitsch shoot

A few months ago I met up with a lovely lass , who happens to be an awesome photographer Camera Hannah, we got chatting and I mentioned I loved Cherry Blossom and anything Japanese, The-couture-company-alterantive-bespoke-wedding-dresses-harajuku-shoot-by-camera-hannahM (16)

and it turns out so does she !! especially the geeky and  kitsch japanese culture, so we hatched a plan and came up with a concept based around Harajuku and Pirikura Photobooths ,with tonnes of other goodness thrown in! From Studio Ghibli and Hello Kitty to My little Pony style unicorns. See how much you can spot in this shoot!!

    I love, love, LOVE the long teal dress! Is that dress available for sale on your website somewhere? I’m looking around for it, but cannot find it anywhere…
