I shoot primarily in Rome, but I'm happy to travel anywhere! I've shot all over Italy and other countries such as Spain (Barcelona, Granda), Croatia (Dubrovnik), and Japan as well.
Do you work only in Rome?
Bookings are done first-come-first-served basis. I recommend booking as early as possible for shooting in high seasons (spring and autumn).
when do we need to book you?
"Kyoko is TRULY talented!! She took the most breathtaking photos of my Elopement in Rome. Not only is she extremely talented, she is highly reliable, welcoming, and has the most amazing, bubbly personality which helped my husband and I relax when taking photos. I felt like I had known her for years!!
Coordinating an elopement from the USA to rome isn’t the easiest, however she was extremely accommodating and made the entire process a breeze!
It rained immensely day of, and she was willing to coordinate with the videographer to change the date for us, however we kept to schedule because we weren’t staying in rome the entire time.
She zoomed with me 3 times prior to arriving in rome so we could meet and discuss ideas/plans and she coordinated the entire day with my videographer, who by the way didn’t speak English! She helped translate everything for my husband and I and truly went above and beyond.
She even brought the most amazing clear umbrellas and towels for me to dry off from the rain. I was nowhere near prepared for rain, but she was!
Everyone LOVES our photos and actually loved the rainy pics with umbrellas best!!
Not having my family there was tough and she honestly made the day very special and made me feel like family.
We 100% will be using Kyoto again for family photos in the future or anniversary pics.
If you’re considering hiring Kyoto reserve your date, you will not be disappointed! She could easily charge tripple the price!! Thank you again for everything ❤️"

"Kyoko was the best wedding photographer we could have asked for- we couldn’t recommend her more.
She took the time to get to know my husband and I before, so that when the big day came, she was able to capture us as our authentic selves.
She made everyone feel at ease (speaking both Italian and English) resulting in photos that all our guests will cherish.
The photos turned out better than we could have imagined. She is talented, professional, and such a kind and thoughtful person. We feel so grateful that we believe we got the best wedding photographer in Rome! 😊"

"My wife and I used Kyoko as our wedding photographer whilst visiting Rome back in September. We cannot put into words how how happy we are with the service Kyoko provided and the outcome of our photos.
Our first meeting happened over zoom, where she took the time to get to know us personally, and what we were looking for in our wedding photos. We are both very awkward and shy around cameras and had never had professional photos taken before, so Kyoko recommended we have a practice shoot a few days before our wedding day. We were made to feel completely at ease and I would highly recommend doing this if you are also camera shy.
For our wedding day, Kyoko met us early afternoon at our hotel, whilst we were getting ready, and took photos at various locations as the day progressed. Having already had the practice shoot, we felt completely comfortable and as a result Kyoko was able to capture our day naturally.
From firstly choosing Kyoko to be our photographer, right through to selecting our album, we have been so impressed with the communication and professional service we received.
Kyoko is also one of the warmest person we have met and we could not recommend her enough to others. Thanks again!! "
