Engagement Shoot at Makapu’u…

Keri and Brian were visiting Oahu and decided to have their engagement pictures taken here. Keri mentioned to me beforehand that they were big nature people, who enjoyed hiking and mountains. We decided to do the shoot at Makapu’u Beach Park, which would show off the beauty of Hawaii- as well as provide a majestic mountain backdrop. Unfortunately, it was cloudy the day of the shoot but we still got some great images and had fun in the process!

Couples Photo Shoot at Waialae Beach Park

Maria and Ivan were honeymooning from Southern California. They had just gotten married right before they left for their Hawaii trip. Their wedding ceremony had been simple and intimate- they told me this photo session was kind of like a wedding treat to themselves. I had a great time getting to know them better and finding out tidbits, like how they had met at work- when he wanted to sit next to her at lunch. It was a cloudy day but they were such an adorable couple and very comfortable with showing affection for each other- which made for a fantastic shoot, despite the lack of sun!

Couples Photo Session

John is stationed in Hawaii and Claudia was out here visiting him. They had gotten married the day before our session, so I was able to witness the elation of being newlyweds! We did the photo shoot on Waikiki Beach, right before sunset. They were a playful couple, but also VERY romantic…

Engagement Session at the Hale Koa

Ashley and Hunter are a vibrant young couple, visiting from the East Coast and staying at the Hale Koa Hotel. We started the session on the grounds there and then moved down to the beach. Ashley had a contagious laugh and kept the mood of the shoot fun and casual, which warmed up Hunter for the camera. Congratulations on the engagement and best wishes to the both of you!

Engagement Photos in Waikiki

Amanda and Ryan were escaping the cold winter back home and thought it would be great to have their engagement pictures done while they were out here in paradise! It rained the day of our session but we rescheduled for the next morning, and lucked out with a gorgeous sunny day. They were such a beautiful couple and were extremely easy to work with. Good luck with the wedding planning you two and hope to see you back here in Hawaii again!
