Short shoots, photo tours, travel packages with photographic curation

Thank you for visiting my site. I hope that I can be of service to you.

I aim to offer a full range of options for those of you seeking beautiful photographic memories. For that reason, I have several options that can serve any scale of budgets:

  • short shoots,
  • half-day & day long photo tours
  • travel packages with photographic curation

Feel free to message me no matter how clear or not your idea is—I can help you develop a concept or an itinerary for any scale of shoot, project, or curated trip. Let’s get started. We’ll figure it out. I’m looking forward to talking with you.



I offer full-day packages to capture your special day with your loved ones. If you are unfamiliar with Kyoto or need help planning and setting up your wedding, I can help you find the perfect place, create a custom plan & theme for your event & photos, even take care of the details, like catering & stays. All you have to do is get in touch.



Kyoto is one of the most romantic cities in the world and coming here is often a long-term dream for those that do. I can’t think of a better place to declare one’s love and ask someone to go on a new adventure together. If you’re like me, and that sounds perfect, let me help.

I know this city so well that we can find a perfect, beautiful place, one that is private, a new discovery. Tell me how you envision it and I will create the scene.

I can do day-long photo tours, with the surprise ending, or short few-hour shoots to help capture this perfect moment. Let’s talk.

Not in Kyoto? no problem! I can also go to see you wherever you are


Special memories & photo tours

You’ve always wanted to come to Kyoto, and now you’re going. Let me help you capture those memories, so they are crystal clear for a lifetime. We can do this any way you want. Let’s talk and find a custom package that works for you. I’m looking forward to it.

Rapport after the reservation was very smooth, and I was relieved to hear this answer about my questions and respond clearly about what to do in case of rain. While talking about various things on the day, I was able to relax and release any tension so we had the shoot in a natural way while receiving suggestions for poses. I really enjoyed the shooting time, and I am very grateful that the photos are all very nice. I'm really thankful to you! (Translated from Japanese)

I met Javier on what I thought was a normal day of sightseeing in Gion. He was extremely professional, personable and knowledgeable - which was affirmed when I found out that my fiancé had been working with Javier to plan a surprise proposal! We couldn't be happier about the quality of photos and our experience working with Javier, particularly on such a happy, personal and memorable occasion.

Javi was an exceptional photographer for our family shoot in Osaka. He knew the area very well and was able to catch great shots in some hidden areas. We received our pictures quickly and were so impressed by the quality. He caught our 1-year-old daughter smiling in so many shots. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a personable and professional photographer in Japan. He also spoke English fluently.

He captured every moment beautifully and his composition and content is out of this world. We are over the moon and although we knew Javier's work was fantastic, we were left utterly speechless when we saw the pictures.
