I don't know where to start with these two. I was so honored to be a part of this couple's special day and I must say I didn't expect to totally fall for them so hard like I did. In addition to being successful, gorgeous, and funny.. Theo and Bobby are both kind and such a treat to be around. I tried my best to not act starstruck around Bobby's mother, Joy Mongano. I was a fan of the film based on her very inspiring life before I met her son and daughter-in-law. I hoped I played it cool, Joy. I hope I was cool. The Four Seasons Hualalai did a great job with this beautiful event and Theo could of worn a paper bag and still looked like a supermodel bride, but Sarah Seven did her right. Mara, as always did a lovely job on hair and makeup and Heidi killed it too on flowers. Theo really wanted moment driven photography for her wedding to tell the story of their day. Both Theo and Bobby were very present with their guests and I loved capturing their special relationships and moments with friends and family. I wish the best for both of you. Cheers!
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.

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!
