This is the love story of Hiromi

and Aran Yoshioka.

They first appeared on JAPANESE STREETS way back in 2011. At that time, they weren’t dating each other yet. So as I photographed them over the years I have seen them fall in love, and I have seen that love grow.

They make an amazing couple. Not because are they extremely stylish, which they are, but because they are a great match. It just warms your heart to see the two of them together, the way they talk together, the way they laugh together, the way they respect each other.

I wanted to celebrate their love in a photo shoot and asked them if they’d be up for that. They said yes. We went out one evening and shot in Tokyo’s Shinjuku district. We actually took these photos a year ago. But I shot about 800 photographs that evening and I couldn’t make up my mind about which ones to choose.

I finally made up my mind tonight. I hope you enjoy this very special Tokyo Love Story!

They do look cute together, but what I mostly like is how this photoshoot reflects all colours of a relationship. Not only passion or physical attraction, but also friendship and mutual understanding.
