Hey there, how are you?
My name is Rimi, a photographer based in Los Angeles, California. I was originally born and raised in Kawasaki, Japan, which is next to the Tokyo metropolitan area. I started photography in my senior year of high school, when I randomly found my dad's film camera in the loft of my house. I didn't even know how to insert the film properly, but that's when my journey began.
Almost 10 years later, photography has become more than my hobby. It's my "Ikigai" (a Japanese word that means your "reason and purpose for living") and through my beautiful digital camera, I can capture timeless moments that will preserve cherished memories, that will evoke precious memories and stories whenever you see it.
A photographer's job isn't just taking photos - I work with people around the world; from professional fashion models to the couples in local areas, who are rarely in front of a camera. Whoever you are, I'm here for you to make you feel as comfortable as possible during the shoot, and that's the most important thing for me.
