Testimonials

Photographer in Tokyo

Kareece, from Australia:

I usually feel very awkward with others taking photos of me – this was NOT the case with Cristian! He made me feel relaxed and comfortable and took some amazing photos. Some of the pictures, I felt like he really captured a side of me that most people don’t understand or see. 

Earlier this year, I actually had another photographer in Hawaii take some shots – I was incredibly disappointed with them. The whole time they did the shoot (one with a camera, one with the lighting) they referred to me as a third person. I felt so uncomfortable the whole time and the photos from the other photographer reflect that. 

It really is about the photographer…working with Cristian was more like catching up with an old friend. Thank you so much 😊😊😊!!!

Cathy, from Romania:

Cristian is an amazing person, any photoshoot with him feels like a walk in the park with a friend I haven’t seen in a long time. Cristian is the first photographer that made my family feel comfortable in front of the camera, thus, the best photographer ever! I’m revisiting Asia this spring and I already booked another photoshoot for my family. Sakura/Cherry Blossoms will make for great memories in Tokyo. See you soon Cristian!

1st birthday- Asian traditions

Tim, from USA:

Luckily Cristian was the photographer we chose for our daughter’s first birthday ceremony. We were in no way disappointed with our choice! His interactions with our families were so positive and uplifting. We actually feared it could be hard for him to communicate, as the majority of those at the ceremony only spoke Korean. Although, that was in no way a problem for him. Plus, our photos were amazing! Thank you Cristian!!

Catherine Forte portrait taken during her music debut show in Tokyo

Catherine Forte, musician, Tokyo:

Cristian is now my go-to photographer for everything! He captured stunning photos of my band’s (Catherine Forte) debut show this Thursday. Even with us all moving around on stage and the difficult lighting of live shows, he came through! I received beautifully edited photos less than 48 hours after. Already decided on his work for the album cover art! A great guy on top of everything too!
