Seattle to Hawaii /// Heather + Bobby

Kapalua, HI /// A few weeks ago I got to work with these two - they were getting married at the Ritz Carlton in Kapalua.  It was a first time for me to photograph at that location and I was a little nervous.  But hey - it’s always rad to get out of your comfort zone, and I love those destination weddings.  I could tell Heather and Bobby were so deeply in love the first time I met them.  They didn’t see each other until the ceremony and when Heather walked down the aisle and looked at Bobby, the look on his face was priceless!  So fun working with them!  We took a long walk, shot at a nearby cliff, then headed down to the beach.  They were open to all my suggestions and ideas and I just love working with couples who are open to the experience! Congratulations to both of you!! Looking forward to seeing you on Maui again.

Vendors for this celebration:

Way up north /// Sierra + Nick

I love when couples just let me pick a spot for our session and go with it.  Maui’s beauty never ceases to impress me and I’m always reminded of this when choosing locations for my couples.  I don’t  know the “official” name of this spot, I just know it’s way up north on the westside of Maui /// Sierra and Nick are some of the sweetest humans.  It was so fun to roam around this breathtaking island and create stunning photographs with them.  Here are my favorites from our session.  Enjoy!

Ka’anapali wedding /// Alannah + Joel

Ka’anapali, HI /// Alannah and Joel are both from Australia.  They brought their family all the way to Maui for their oceanfront, destination wedding, choosing Ka’anapali as the backdrop in which to share their vows.  Love filled the air,  and the group was a beautiful collaboration of happy tears and laughs.  The ceremony began with a traditional Hawaiian blessing - one that melted my heart for sure.  From the ceremony site, we headed to Kapalua for some sunset photos and I really feel we created some amazing images and captured their vibrant enthusiasm for each other and their celebration.  These two were so energetic and fun to shoot!  Ladies and gentlemen please enjoy Alannah and Joel’s special day.
