What you'll do

It's time to put the selfie sticks away!

When you are traveling, getting the perfect shot in the perfect location can be a hassle, but that's what we are here for - join us on an hour and a half long neon photo-tour of Shinjuku! We have lived in the area for a while so we know all the little hidden spots that you can’t find anywhere online. So join us and see the real neon wonderland that Shinjuku really is.

Who are we?

We are a photography couple, so the shooting never stops - two shoots for the price of one! We have been doing this for years, so there is no need to worry about posing. We can help you get your best angles and find your ‘blue steel’ in no time. From beginners to pros, everyone is welcome!

The Experience

We will take portraits of you as we guide you through secret alleyways and hidden side streets that have the best neon glows. We'll show you our favourite locations to get the perfect shot to be that hashtag insta-star or to show off to family and friends. Plus, we'll give you the low down on hidden gems that no-one else will.

- You will receive 40 high-res edited photos.
- 1 hour of shooting.
- Private photoshoot (feel free to bring other guests, but you must pay for each person attending).
- Photos will be sent around 1 week after photoshoot.

Sophie is a professional fashion and portrait photographer who has been in the business for 2 years. Photographing tourists in the heart of Tokyo has become her full-time job. She started her own portrait photography business independently and has been passionate about photoshoots ever since!

Really great experience with Sophie & Josh, I’ve never done a shoot before but they made me feel like a natural and guided me on poses and mannerisms for the shoot. The shoot was made fun and casual and I feel like we connected really well. They also sent me a great list of recommendations for places to go and restaurants to try here in Tokyo. Thank you guys so much :)

We had a great time with Josh and Sophie! They were warm, friendly approachable and made the experience a whole lot of fun. They clearly know their stuff, they know the area and were able to show us some hidden nooks and crannies. They were even kind enough to send us a whole list of recommendations after the experience which proved to be great recommendations! We can’t wait to see the photos and we highly recommend this experience - they are an awesome couple and it’s great value for money. Do it!
