Kawehi and Josh, Fairmont Orchid Wedding, Big Island of Hawaii

Here are a few for Kawehi and Josh who were married at the Fairmont Orchid………a luxury resort nestled on the Island of Hawaii’s sun-drenched Kohala Coast. It was wonderful to be a part of their day, and see their love and excitement shared with all their family and friends.  I was again reminded why I love my job so much!  Kawehi’s beautiful hair and make up styled  by Grace Makeup Artistry.Thanks to Ashley Kojima in the Fairmont Orchids wedding department for ensuring such a beautiful day!

Ashley and Matt, Kailua-Kona, Big Island of Hawaii

What a beautiful, vibrant  beach wedding! This charming bride and groom had such beautiful rhythm about them in every detail! Their love for each other was shining so strong that it was definitely the most important part of the event! After the wedding we took a moment to pose with a 1948 Ford Woody and then headed up to the Holuakoa cafe for the wedding reception. Congratulations Ashely & Matt, you two are wonderful! Wishing you love and laughter everyday!

Heather and Ryan, engagement, Four Seasons Hualalai, Big Island of Hawaii

Cute couple. Cute locations. Vintage car. Epic sunset.  BINGO! You’ve got a killer recipe for a fun engagement session! I met Jennifer & Ryan at the Four Seasons Hualalai for their engagement session and we decided to use some of the props available to us on the property, like the 1953 Buick Super Riviera Coupe Sampan (an open passenger transport vehicle typical to the Hawaiian islands, complete with a thatch covering on its roof. Kind of like a mobile Tiki hut), and an outrigger canoe that we found on the beach. Aside from a little flirtation with the possibility of getting a serious foot injury from landing on a sharp piece of coral during a sunset jump, I think that we all agreed that the session was a lot of fun. Enjoy!
