We are back on the Big Island of Hawai'i for the rest of the year. I am looking forward to weddings, family, and lifestyle sessions in the coming weeks and months. Here is a the sky from a recent wedding with Vintage & Lace at Kikaua Point on the Kona Coast. What a special rainbow for a destination wedding in Hawaii!
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.
Andy and Julie Fitts are friends and fellow creatives here on the Big Island. I knew they would be great photo subjects because they are gorgeous, up for anything, and have a really fun and playful relationship. We photographed with soft serve at the Old Airport in Kona and ended at the beach at Kukio. Everything was perfect + they let me take pictures while driving!
Oh. My. Goodness. I just arrived home from my travels to this beautiful wedding where I photographed Matt and (baby Selby) Heather's elopement at Kawela Bay on the North Shore of Oahu. I know wedding photographers are always taking about all the love .. but this was pretty inspiring. I rushed home to hug and kiss my people a little extra after being around these three. Pretty amazing little family. I was so lucky to be a part of this totally perfect ceremony. The entire family was so calm and peaceful, they even helped me relax my wedding jitters, and I really loved Heather's understated whimsical style. I wish Heather, Matt and Selby a bright and beautiful future together full of aloha.
I've started going through old shoots for the website revamp and I've realized there are so many lost frames that I wanted to share. This is a medley of mostly family shoots, but some friends, or magazine commissioned lifestyle, like the above photo for Spain's Revista MIA on living rich in times of economic hardship (hint: love up your loved ones), and some personal moments too.
I don't know where to start about how sweet and genuine these two are (and beautiful!). I am so happy Kristi and Garrett found each other and invited me to be a part of such a special day. They decided to have a destination wedding on the Big Island after visiting the chapel at the Kona Sheraton and falling in love with the setting. Their ceremony and reception was dripping with love and emotion on a day with record high surf. Congratulations to you two!
I had a complete blast photographing Justin and Emily around my Kona neighborhood on the Big Island of Hawai'i. Justin is a talented surfer who works with Surfers Healing and Emily is a California girl loving the sun and surf here in Hawai'i. Here are a few favorites from the shoot. Lots more to come.
Nice reminder of how special life can be here in Hawaii. Swam with spinner dolphins and a whale cruised by too! Lost phone to water damage but really, worth it.
