When I met Koga and Mary, I knew that this was a match made in heaven– for them and me! Koga grew up in Tokyo and met Mary after moving to the States to attend college. Being a wedding photographer, I always get to hear the proposal stories. Mary shared with me how Koga wanted to honor her romantic American sensibilities and incorporate his Japanese traditions. She told him that American girls expect the young men to get down on one knee and ask properly. Instead of getting down on one knee, Koga knelt on both with both arms out and head bowed!
