Julian and Katie had a gorgeous destination wedding at Puakea Ranch on the Big Island of Hawaii. I can't wait to share more from this beautiful couple's perfect event. We all stayed dry under this beautiful tree on the ranch during a pretty hefty rain blessing that ended with their ceremony. With Rachael from Vintage & Lace behind the decor and planning, you know everything will run smoothly and look beautiful. Flowers came from Honoka'a's Grace Flowers Hawaii. A big congratulations to Julian and Katie!
If you are a regular reader of this blog (all three of you!) you might recognize Julie and Andy from when I photographed them before here, they are also prominently displayed through out my editorial website. On top of being a muse of sorts for me, these two are great friends who we miss dearly here in Hawaii. They flew over to the Big Island for work recently and introduced us to their newest muse, Señor Wylie. Isn't he just adorable? I want to snuggle him up to pieces. Congratulations to our buddies on making such a handsome and sweet bebe.
We photographed Josh and Melissa and their two lovely daughters at my special beach on the Big Island's Kona Coast, He'eia Bay. The entire family are amazing surfers and I look forward to saying I knew these two young athletes when... In addition to being super surfers, they are the sweetest family, always out on adventures and exploring.
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.
This fun group got together for a full family vacation on the Kona Coast of the Big Island this past summer. The entire family had a great sense of humor which made things run really smoothly here at Old Airport Beach Park.... and look at all these gorgeous kids. I mean, come on! I love the idea of all the cousins getting to vacation together. What amazing memories they will have from this time. Aloha Friday, everybody.
Jaime and Erik had me over to the beautiful Big Island property where they live just above Kona with the most amazing garden. I really hope they have me back to photograph their new baby and tour around the plants a bit more. These two are so excited to bring a new life into the world and it was a pleasure to photograph them in this beautiful time in a family's story. 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!
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.
I photographed the Sheinfeld Rodriguez design team, Loomis and Daniel, on the organic farm in Holualoa, Hawai'i where they live off the grid. The German blog Stilnest wrote about their high tech design process and the rural lifestyle they live on a remote island in the Pacific Ocean. I photographed Loomis and Daniel before with their son, Veda here on the Big Island. Pretty cute goat hanging out at their desk, right?
I was lucky enough to photograph this cute family on their Hawaiian vacation at the Four Seasons Resort Hulalai at Historic Ka'upulehu on the Big Island of Hawai'i.
