Glam Tropical Fairmont Orchid Wedding

Saturday, 17 September 2016 18:06

Brett and Katie had a perfect modern tropical destination wedding all their friends and family at the Fairmont Orchid on the Kohala Coast of the Big Island. This wedding was so fresh with bold colors and Katie totally killed it in her Vera Wang wedding dress. But, let's talk about this arch. The couple's vision for color and statement design was perfectly executed by Sara Kam of Jots of Thoughts with florals by Grace Flowers. I think the purple bougainvillea was such a smart choice for total impact with out blowing the budget. It was such a treat to shoot photos with it as a backdrop. Hair and makeup perfectly done, as always, by Mara. I loved how the event was a really elegant twist on a Hawaiian holiday with a full luau meal and Polynesian entertainment for their many guests that came from around the country to celebrate with them. Congratulations to Brett and Katie.

Pololu Valley Wedding

Friday, 17 July 2015 19:28

This is the most adventurous wedding I have ever photographed! Lindsay and Brian have been traveling the world surfing and exploring but when they set their eyes on the majestic Pololu Valley on the Big Island's North Shore they decided to elope. Sara of Jots of Thoughts and I hiked down into the valley where the intimate ceremony was performed in the forests then they celebrated playing on the beach. What an amazing day! I look forward to sharing more of this stunning couple in the most incredible place. Aloha!

This beautiful family had a lovely beach elopement at the Four Seasons on the Big Island of Hawaii. Their guest of honor looked adorable in his little suit. Congratulations and Aloha!

Big Island Wedding at Kehena Beach

Monday, 15 December 2014 21:13

Most of the Big Island of Hawai'i weddings I have photographed so far on the beach have been on the island's Kona Coast so I was thrilled to get the opportunity to head to the island's East side to photograph a destination wedding at Kehena Beach. W and D had a small ceremony only with their closest friends and then headed to The Bali House for the celebration. The rugged coastline of lower Puna provided an unbelievable backdrop to their wedding.

Rob and Sarah came to Kauai from Ohio for a perfect beach elopement. We went all around the island's stunning North Shore photographing this sweet, sweet couple with Kauai's gorgeous tropical backdrop. Congratulations you two!

I've already written about what a treat it was to photograph this beautiful family, but I am excited to share more from their destination wedding on Oahu's North Shore. I feel grateful that I got to be a part of such a special and intimate occasion with these two and their adorable baby boy. Heather and Matt did it right! Heather looked beautiful in her Grace Loves Lace dress (brides: check out their site!) and Kahu Pomaika‘i ordained a lovely non-denominational Hawaiian ceremony right on Kawela Bay. It was a dreamy event full of Aloha.
