Mirjam and Jurgen | Elopement at Waialae Beach Park

Simple and Fun

Mirjam and Jurgen’s simple beach wedding at Waiʻalae Beach Park was perfect. Patricia with Nani Weddings set up the perfect destination elopement on the beach - she always does. The two were planning on having their Hawaiian beach wedding in the afternoon just before sunset with a couple of their friends. And after traveling all the way from Switzerland, the beautiful day was the perfect way to say i-do.

Hampton Family Reunion on the Beach in Hawaii

Family flew in for the holidays from all around the world and Shar wanted to gift her in-laws with the perfect way to remember this special occasion. Family photos on the beach. But don’t let the classic white on blue jeans look fool you. Genuine and goofy are a couple words that come to mind when I look back at this extended family.

Kimura Family Vacation Portraits at Waiʻalae Beach Park

Waiʻalae Beach Park, Waiʻalae

How cute is this family? These two little girls were adorable and had so much fun at the beach. Maybe a little too much fun. Little ones can be tricky to photograph, as any parent can attest to. My secret - just have fun. When everyone is laughing and having a good time, we can throw out the “cheese” because we all have our natural beautiful smiles on. And if you dress up your daughters in cute clothes like this, then our photos will turn out even better!

Hallie and Christopher | Engagement at Waiʻalae Beach Park

Waiʻalae Beach Park, Waiʻalae

Hallie booked her flight from Mississippi to visit her boyfriend who has been stationed here in the Army. Little did she know that upon arrival, Christopher had bigger plans for her time here. After a surprise proposal, we scheduled an engagement photo session. I absolutely love how fun they were to work with. Just look at our photos from their session. So in love with nothing but the rest of their lives ahead.

Soldan Maternity Portraits on the beach in Hawaii

Last minute and impromptu photo sessions are always the best. I think the spur of the moment fun is truly beautiful and a lot of fun to capture. Roy and Erika were sitting on the beach in Waikiki thinking about how they could capture their growing family on their last vacation as a family of three. Luckily we were able to coordinate a time for photos because this session was a lot of fun.

I have to give little Alexa credit for going along with this plan. At first she wasn't feeling it, but I was confident that after warming up she would give us the biggest smiles. 

Lombard Family Session on vacation in Hawaii

Waiʻalae Beach Park, Waiʻalae

With a few storms rolling over the Hawaiian Islands, last week Thursday didn't look like the best opportunity for a family photo session. I was hopeful and even set out before dawn to have my hand at capturing a beautiful East Oʻahu sunrise timelapse. To my dismay, the clouds overtook the skyline and the sun was nowhere to be seen.

The Lombards were excited either way and nothing could ruin little Joshua's day. The rain held up, the clouds actually created a beautiful color in the sky all leading up to a great family photo session. I am thrilled at the way this entire photo session turned out.
