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! 

 

Christy + Chris

 

With names like Christy + Chris you know they belong together! Christy + Chris were married at Loulu Palms Estate on the north shore of Oahu. Their pale gold, blush, and green color palette was so dreamy against the pastel blue and pink Hawaii skies. Loulu Palms is one of my favorite venues here on Oahu, as it has so much variety - from the secluded beach, wide open lawn, front yard swing and coves of palm trees everywhere.

My favorite part of the day was when I asked the mothers of the bride and groom to take a photo together and they took me all over the property! I loved their colorful korean hanbok dresses and how much fun they were having together!

Jaimie + Reece

 

When the groom is a part of the Beretania Floral family, you know the wedding is going to be a floral dream! Jaimie + Reece were married at the Halekulani Hotel in Waikiki.  I loved the boutonniere bar they had for the guests as well as the amazing monstera leaf wall they created as a photo backdrop. But my favorite thing about this wedding was that Reece hand created his bride's bouquet! Congratulations Jaimie + Reece! We loved being a part of your day!

Big Island Engagement Session

 

Waimea is by far my favorite Big Island town for two reasons: One, our amazing studio owner Kolby moved here with her family, so every visit is a fun reunion with them! Two, this chilly sleepy town with rolling pastures and forests is so unique to the rest of tropical Hawaii.

I love when couples and families want to shoot here, and was so excited when Matt and Roxanne (who are sooo sweet!) wanted to shoot in a rustic forest area with their blue VW bug! This car is Matt's baby, and of course we had to include it in the shoot! Can't wait for their wedding next year when this car serves as their getaway car!
