Valerie + Richard


Happy Valentines Day! Today I'm sharing a 2017 wedding where the bride and groom found each other later in life, and celebrated it big!

Valerie + Richard had the ultimate backyard wedding. They have a beautiful new home in Kona and chose to use it as the setting for their big day. The majority of the evening was spent dancing (like- started at cocktail hour and was still going strong when we left late at night)!  The decor was ocean inspired and filled with sea shells and tropical details. Can you spot the pineapple palm trees? I need them in my life!! 

Valerie is one of my favorite brides, not only is she a beautiful person inside and out, but she rocked an incredible sea shell crown on her wedding day (see photos for awesomeness)!

So much love, so much celebration. Congratulations Valerie + Richard!

Gena + Brandon


Looking back on 2017 I am so thankful for all the wonderful couples we were able to meet and photograph this year! Our summer was especially full of sweet couples like Gena + Brandon. They had a romantic blush and gold wedding in downtown Honolulu at Cafe Julia. I loved their easy going nature and their amazing choreographed first dance! Be sure to check out their same day edit by our cinema team at the end!

Windward Sunrise Engagement Session


I rarely do sunrise sessions because I'm not a morning person, but when afternoon rain was in the forecast for Lindsay + Pat's engagement session, we made the switch! And wow was it dreamy! We were able to explore a few areas on the windward side of the island with the soft sunrise creating magical misty light for us.  Congratulations and thanks for waking up early with me Lindsay + Pat! I guess more sunrise sessions are in my future!
