Hi!  I'm Kyoko.  I'm a wedding and lifestyle photographer. I live in a tiny little village in Umbria, Italy, with my Italian husband Edoardo and our cat Machiko.

I'm from Saga, a small town in Japan. Since I moved out of Saga to go to college in Tokyo (my first airplane ride!), I fell in love with traveling and discovering new places.

I lived in the U.S. (Arizona, Hawaii, California) and France, before moving to Italy in 2010.

I used to be an English teacher in Japan and in the U.S. I love working with people.

I got into photography when I moved to Italy.  I spoke very little Italian, and photography gave me the voice.

I love taking photos of people.  I used to annoy my friends and family by taking way too many photos of them.  Now I get to photograph people for work...what a dream come true!

If the idea of the traditional, "posed" wedding photo does NOT appeal to you, if you prefer spontaneous, natural, "real" moments photographed, I'm there for you. Please feel free to contact me from the button below.
