Kimono is a traditional dress in Japan and have a very strong history behind. It’s a plesure to finally wear one. A dream come true (albeit a casual one). I told kampungboy we must take lots and lots of photos to commemorate this special occasion.
However, it can be hard to capture those beautiful moments by ourselves. We either ended up with lousy couple shots, or there’s only solo shots of us.
I’m so happy that we collaborated with a Malaysian startup called WanderZoom that lets you hire photographers for local and overseas destination and vacation photography. Wanderzoom features photographers from more than 60 destinations throughout Asia, Australia, and Europe and continues to find talented photographers in new and exciting destinations. I had a very good experience with WanderZoom from a BFF photo shoot that I did in Saigon, Vietnam so we sort of knew that our Tokyo shoot is going to be amazing.
The booking process is hassle free and secured. Why don’t we go to direct to the photographers, some of you asked. Wanderzoom goes through a strict selection process for each photographer coming on board. They also ensure fast delivery of the photos – within 7 days, client will receive a link with a password to an online gallery which they can download the photos or to share with their friends and family. Depending on location and photographer, the packages offered ranges from USD60–USD250 per hour. Full refund is provided if anything goes wrong (which rarely happens).

We had a great experience dealing with H.M, our photographer in Tokyo. A half Kenyan and half Japanese guy who speaks really good English, H.M gave us a lot of local tips on food, culture and sight seeing. He also took us to the less touristy area of Asakusa such as a retro looking alley with Tokyo Skytree view.
