Young Love

Hello everyone,

Thank you for visiting my blog!

I love shooting staged bride and groom portraits—working with local vendors and models is a super fun way to practice my craft and to get even more creative with my wedding photography.

On a personal level, as a photographer I often work solo and changing things up for this shoot and working with a team was so fulfilling. Sharing ideas with other creative people here on Maui is always inspiring.

For this session with the awesome models, Angelei and Abraham, we went to two prime locations; Honolulu Bay and Oneloa (Ironwoods) Beach. The muted light and the forest and beach backgrounds provided an excellent contrast to the white outfits and bright colors that the models were wearing.

Here’s the behind the scenes video and a few of my favorite images.

Until next time, Rodrigo
