Mac & Lex - Honeymoon on Hawaii's North Shore

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!

Megan & Travis - Elope Oceanfront at Makapuu Lighthouse

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.

Xavier & Natasha - North Shore Ocean and Mountain Proposal

Xavier & Natasha - North Shore Ocean and Mountain Proposal

With the mountains reigning in the background, the blue ocean reflecting the puffy clouds and the cliff on which he would ask her to be his wife, this was exactly what Xavier had in mind when proposing on Oahu! He pulled it off, but not without a little speculation from Natasha (as all proposal stories go).

These two will be getting married right down the street from us in Hawaii next spring, so we were stoked to hang out and document this season of engagement for them at the place they met.
