Marie-Estelle & Jean-Clement: French Elopement at Waimanalo Beach

Marie-Estelle & Jean-Clement: French Elopement at Waimanalo Beach

Having the kids there made it extra special for them as they could witness their parents love and devotion to one another. There were lots of smirks, yawns, and hugs! Their son just did his own thing the whole day, while their daughter got in a white gown as well and felt like it was her own wedding day :)

Alicia & Ray - Married at Moli'i Gardens Secret Island

Alicia & Ray - Married at Moli'i Gardens Secret Island

Her mom cried frequently, her nephew wrote “I like you. - Tom” on their welcome block, it started raining during their first dance and they shrugged it off, they kissed a pig and made all the little boys cover their mouths, and they - along with all their guests - took a boat across Molii Pond to Secret Island to share their vows in front of Kaneohe Sandbar and Chinaman’s Hat.

Tayte & Justin - Maui Wedding at Olowalu Plantation House

It was a truly honoring day to their friends & families. The gifts they gave, the love they showered on their guests, and the speeches from their siblings speak to these two’s love for each other and others. They ended the night under some twinkle light and twinkle stars with an epic sunset to boot at Olowalu Plantation House.

Kelsey & Scott - Five Year Anniversary at Laie Point

Kelsey & Scott were a special privilege to photograph because we had photographed their wedding 5 years previously! Their wedding was the first outdoor wedding we had ever photographed and it was a joy to see these two huge smiles once again. They told us they actually never had photos taken again since their engagement and wedding day 5 years ago :)

Kirsten & Kyle - Married at Waimea's Anna Ranch on the Big Island

“I did the impossible - got a Kauai boy to move to Oahu,” Kirsten laughs. These two are a perfect example of how in the best of relationships, a husband and wife make one another better. Better friends, better employees, better advocates for this planet. We are so grateful to know them and can’t wait to see what they do for the Hawaiian islands in their marriage.

Katelyn & Ignacio - Celebrating 1 Year Married in Hawaii

Katelyn & Ignacio got married at their local courthouse in Kentucky and never really had any photographs from their wedding day so they decided to adventure around the North Shore of Oahu and check out all the views & sunset at Kawela Bay on Turtle Bay :)

Nicole & Jim - Married at Turtle Bay's White Chapel on the Point

We met up with Nicole & Jim at Maui Brewing Co several months before their wedding where she told us two things: #1 don’t stay too late because Jim’s friends get crazy and #2 that Jim hates having photos taken. We said “awesome!”

Devin & Raquel - Sunset Surf Proposal at Waimea Bay

Devin & Raquel - Sunset Surf Proposal at Waimea Bay

One of our best friends, the crazy talented musician Devin Henning, proposed to his Brazilian bride out at Waimea Bay…on a SUP board…with the ring in his boardshorts. That is a Hawaiian proposal at it’s finest! In the winter time, the swells can reach 30-40ft and Raquel is one of the pro surfers crazy enough to paddle out into them! So Dev thought what better place to ask for her hand in marriage than out at her favorite break on the planet :)
