 Q :  I do not have a dress or a tuxedo. Is it possible to try on the dress or tuxedo before the shoot to ensure they fit?

A : You may only change clothes if moving to an additional location.

 
Q : If it rains on the day of my photo shoot, is it possible to reschedule?
A : During the cherry blossom season and leaf-changing season most days are already pre-booked and rescheduling is difficult. Photo shoots will therefore happen rain or shine. However, if the rain is extreme and provided your schedule can accommodate it, it may be possible to postpone the shoot to the next available date. Please inquire.
