Chiaki’s journey began in Tokyo, where she displayed an early passion for photography and art. In the years since, she has traveled across the world in pursuit of her dreams. She studied at the International Center of Photography (ICP) in New York City and established herself as a skilled fashion and beauty photographer upon graduation.
In 2003, Chiaki began working at Wolfgang Freithof Studios, quickly becoming an associate photographer with the company, wowing clients with her enigmatic fashion-forward style. Shortly afterward, Chiaki and Wolfgang formed A Day of Bliss Wedding Photography. Today, Chiaki is recognized as one of the best wedding photographers in New York City, and routinely has her work featured in leading publications including the NY Times, New York Magazine, Town and Country, The Knot, Brides, and DWHA.
“Every Wedding is a unique story – my greatest pleasure is to capture the beauty and joy of love, friendship, family, and tradition in an artistic and journalistic fashion.”
In addition to photographing luxury weddings across the globe, Chiaki has worked with Maria Conchita Alonso, Charlotte McKinney of Baywatch, Loreal’s Visionary Awards Team, and many more professional clients.
