weddings, couples, wedding tips, and our personal life found here

She said “YES!” and we spent the next hour walking down to Alan Davis Beach where they had the whole place to themselves. The warm, golden sun was setting behind Koko Head, as the full moon was rising for the evening. It was a beautiful and special day in Hawaii as these two got ready to tie the knot 🙂

Mandy was so shocked (& a little shy) that she covered her face with her hat to hide the tears and once Raymond told her I was there to photograph the moment, they both started laughing out loud. We spent the next hour together, descending the trail and then driving over to Waimanalo Beach for the rest of our time together. This was such a fun and sweet moment to witness, thanks Raymond & Mandy for inviting me into your lives 🙂

Raymond & Mandy – Hanauma Bay Proposal, Hawaii

Manik & Ashley wanted to come to Hawaii for the beautiful mountains and gorgeous beaches so they picked two of the best places to have their honeymoon photographs taken 🙂 We started near Lanikai Beach in Kailua town then headed for the mountains at Hoomaluhia Botanical Gardens.

They were all about making sure everyone got their toes sandy after the ceremony and had plenty of yard games for everyone to meet & greet. We loved the way Allexa’s grandpa looked at her with such adoration and love 🙂 Enjoy browsing their easy, breezy backyard wedding day in the country town of Hauula, Hawaii at Kokololio Beach.

We met up with Nicole & Jim at Maui Brewing Co several months before their wedding where she told us two things: #1 don’t stay too late because Jim’s friends get crazy and #2 that Jim hates having photos taken. We said “awesome!”

Planning a Small DIY Elopement in Hawaii
