About Me


Wedding, family, and lifestyle photographer


Hi, I'm Yumi!

I'm a photographer specializing in authentic wedding photos and creative lifestyle shots. I split my time between New York and Tokyo, but am down to travel anywhere in between!

One major life event in 2016 motivated me to quit my day job and pursue my passion for photography.  I learned just how precious and unpredictable life is when my dad fell ill, and knew I wanted to focus my time and energy on moments that mattered. 

Photography has given me the opportunity to connect with people in a deeper, more meaningful way. It has allowed me to capture some of life's most precious moments - from a baby's first smile to a bride's last dance. 


Kind Words


We are OBSESSED with these pictures.  They are so amazing.  We will treasure them forever.  One is better than the next. We've already started recommending you to our friends!
