Hale Ohia Kai wedding, Kailua-Kona, Hong & Jon

Hale Ohi’a Kai, is a fabulous oceanfront villa in Kona, Hawaii. Uniquely designed and custom built with Ohi’a wood, the oceanfront location and views are magical, the perfect Hawaiian setting for a beautiful and memorable wedding! I was thrilled when Jon & Hong reached out to me for their wedding photography and told me Hale Ohia Kai was the venue! What a gorgeous setting to say “I do”.  I know I don’t have to say this because the images speak for themselves but Hong is exquisite…and I believe even that is an understatement.   We know why Jon fell in love with her because that beauty on the outside is well matched by that on the inside, and as a couple they are just flawless.  This wedding day was the stuff of perfection – perfect dress, perfect shoes, perfect smiles, perfect setting, I could go on and on….I am so honored to have been a part of it. Here’s to Hong and Jon and to many, many years of love and happiness.

Shediac family photography, Laforest-Bastarache family

I was so excited to take family photos for my best friend France and her extended family.  While on vacation on the East Coast of Canada , I managed to pin this family down for a photography session, which was no small feat! I have known France since I was all of 13 years old when her family moved to our town and we became pretty much inseparable until high school graduation (as well as very good at getting into trouble together!).  I know these personalities and what the REAL dynamics and expressions SHOULD be.  I think I managed to capture the love and craziness between all of these amazing people.  I love you guys!
