Oahu Engagement Photography | Kelley & Nick | Aiea, Hawaii

  A little rain ain't never hurt nobody right? :) I thought the slight drizzles really added a nice feel to the photos.  We were laughing a bunch the whole time, shout out to Nick for clowning around and being super fun.  The last shot we actually waited a little bit for the rain to come back I was hoping for a little more but the skies gave us just enough to capture it.  Enjoy!

YWCA Kokokahi Wedding | Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii | Sarah & Ramon

YWCA Kokokahi is such a beautiful wedding venue and while I knew of it I never had the chance to shoot there.  My first time photographing a wedding here and it couldn't have been with a better couple.  I was excited to capture the two of them on their wedding day from the very beginning.  From the moment they brought donuts along with them to let me know they wanted me to be their wedding photographer I knew this was going to be sweet. Lol.

Hawaii Engagement Photography | Pearl City, Oahu | Sara & Trevor

Engagement photography is one of my favorite things to do with couples!  It's one of the few opportunities where you really get to know how working with your photographer will be.  Sara & Trevor were so much fun to shoot with and they brought me to this hidden place that was very special to them and B-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l!  This is probably the first and only time someone will be able to get to capture photos at this location so I really hope you enjoy them!  I'm super thankful for the chance to get a peek into their world.  The water was cool and refreshing, the light was lovely, and together they were perfect!

Oahu Wedding Photographer | Laie Beach House, Hawaii | Pohai & 'Olu

This Oahu wedding completely reminded me of everything I knew of growing up.  Being born and raised in Hawaii, things were always relaxed, care free, fun, always around family, and always at the beach.  A simple time, with a lot of good grinds (food), and a hell of an appetite after surfing all day! Watching Pohai hanging out with her siblings, really made me miss being a kid again.  Then seeing her with 'Olu was just a whole lot of fun!  This was one of the most meaningful weddings I've been a part of because this brought back a lot of memories for me.  It was everything my thoughts would be when I think of "home".

 Hawaii weddings are normally thought of as being on the beach, walking hand in hand and through the sand. I love the ocean and practically grew up on the beach but at this point I couldn't prove it to you with my tan! As awesome as beach weddings are in Hawaii, we had a the privilege of shooting at this unknown venue. The Mission Museum Houses which is now one of my favorite wedding venues with a rustic charm.

Hawaii Beach Wedding | Lyric+Tyler | Kaneohe Marine Corp Base

 Lyric and Tyler's wedding was the first of the year and a treat for me being that it was on the Kaneohe Marine Corp Base. Their wedding ceremony had such an amazing backdrop, plus it was on a secluded beach!  What more can I ask for? Their son was super cute with bright blue eyes and if you take a look at Tyler and Lyrics eyes it makes you want to get some contacts and fake the funk! Lol! I still hope somewhere down our bloodline one of the kids can inherit my mother's incredible, blue-green eyes. Congratulations again Lyric and Tyler, your intimate beach wedding was one of my favorites to be a part of!

   Can't say enough about shooting at sunrise! Yes it's early but feeling the warmth of the sun hit you after hanging out in the cool of the night... feels great.  Two of the most coolest people I've ever met!  I really loved their accents being that they were from Ireland and the fact that they were adventurous! Give me an "up for whatever" kind of couple and stuff like crazy wave shots can happen!

Paradise Cove Luau, KoOlina | Anna+Dean | Kapolei, Hawaii | Roy's Restaurant

Paradise Cove was a beautiful place for their wedding. The day started with so many pleasant surprises for Anna & Dean's wedding! From their beautiful Korean family, who were from Russia and spoke Russian fluently. I have never heard it spoken in person before and I'm always amazed at just how beautiful other languages are! 

Surprises like having a special treat Anna's mom for us... Real, Deal Pirozhki!  Which was sooooo good!  To having Former Lt. Governor Duke Aiona officiating their Paradise Cove wedding. Anna's dress was absolutely gorgeous and made me speechless.  It was the perfect dress for her and after capturing Dean's expression when he saw her walking down the aisle, I'd say he thought the same thing!

Honolulu Engagement Photography

We had such a great time getting to know this gorgeous couple more during our engagement session. We took a stroll through downtown and one of my favorite things about using an area that's popular among other photographers is being able to shoot it in ways that no else has and seeing things that other people haven't. Romelyn and Wahren were so much fun to work with and we really created amazing, one of a kind images together!
