Mac & Lex - Honeymoon on Hawaii's North Shore

They were so comfortable in their own skin and confident in who they were created to be :) They claim to eat more Portillo’s than anyone else in the city of Chicago and are a true Superman/Lex Luther combo; Mackenzie being superman and Lex being the Kryptonotic Luther haha.

Dani & Mat - Married at Molii Gardens in Kualoa Ranch

Dani & Mat - Married at Molii Gardens in Kualoa Ranch

It was super important for D&M to have plenty of images where their loved ones were having fun in the beauty of the location they chose! With yard games and mountain views, it wasn’t hard for anyone to enjoy themselves. These were some of the most heartfelt & genuine people we’ve ever met and are excited to share their wedding day. You will see how Dani’s grandma just adored the two of them, the respect her brothers have for her and her parents, the crazy dance off to choose which table got dinner first, and kids being….well, kids!

Jenna & Brendan - Diamond Head Honeymoon in Waikiki

Jenna & Brendan - Diamond Head Honeymoon in Waikiki

We photographed Jenna & Brendan’s wedding in Cincinnati, OH just 5 months before this. They decided to honeymoon in Hawaii at Waikiki, Maui, and Kauai. For Valentine’s Day (just two days before they arrived), Jenna’s mom surprised them with a couple’s session to have photographs of their brief time on Oahu before heading to the other islands :)

In Hebrew, Seea means “helper” which we thought was appropriate since she would be our oldest child. And her middle name came from the combo of her first name and middle name sounding like “sea of grace” which we’re all swimming in because of the greatest gift that comes to us in Jesus.

Megan & Travis - Elope Oceanfront at Makapuu Lighthouse

Megan brings the spunk while Travis is quiet and reserved, but during their vows they both had wet eyes and wet cheeks as well as their four witnesses :) It was such a simple beach wedding, which is exactly what these two wanted after being together for so long. It was intentional, emotional, and intimate. It was such an honor to get close to these two and their four loved ones as they looked on with love in their eyes, joy in their smiles, and warmth in their hugs.

Allie & Christopher - Surprise Proposal at Kualoa's Secret Beach

He proposed using a heart lego box which was the same box he used for his first gift to Allie, which was a lego-shaped heart necklace :) He was able to get Allie’s grandma’s ring to ask her to be her bride - it didn’t fit, but nothing a jeweler can’t fix for such sweet sentiment.

Some of the best moments from H&M’s wedding in Honolulu was the way her dad looked at her & teared up when he first saw her in her wedding dress, Matt’s parent’s getting emotional during the entire ceremony, their symbolic - but windy - butterfly release, Hannah’s run in with the sliding door, their gorgeous portraits at Diamond Head, their emotional and intentional wedding vows that had the whole room in tears, and a unique photo-bomber while walking to the pier in Waikiki.
