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.

Sequeira | Stunning Engagement Photos During Sunset

We started out the evening with some family photos on the beach. The typical “we are on a vacation in Hawaiʻi” photos. And while we were all set up for photos, we decided for a quick wardrobe change and switched into engagement photo gear. I think the timing of the evening was perfect as the setting sun gave us some great colors and light to work with.

Chris and Shelly | Proposal on the North Shore

Romantic Beach Get-Away

Chris had planned a romantic vacation for his girlfriend, and promised that it would be a trip to remember. And with the proposal he was planning, it definitely was. We had picked out Papaʻiloa Beach on the North Shore as the location for his proposal because it is a very beautiful beach. It is a fairly secluded beach and a perfect spot for the sunset with the Koʻolau Mountains and Waiʻanae Mountains as backdrops.

McCart Vow Renewal Ceremony at Ko Olina

Ko Olina, Honouliuli

Lisa and Kevin planned a family vacation to Hawaiʻi to celebrate their wedding anniversary and coordinated a very intimate ceremony on the beach to renew their wedding vows. 20 years of marriage and a beautiful family including a 6 month old granddaughter are a couple great reasons to celebrate. We were blessed to have the entire beach to ourselves and took advantage of that opportunity to capture some great moments and family photos.

Admani Couple Portrait at Ala Moana Beach Park

Ala Moana Beach Park, Honolulu

Shehla and Sohail were in Hawaiʻi on their one year anniversary and were looking for something special to remember their time in paradise.

Sunset photos on the beach.

They were looking for something a little more intimate and romantic, and as luck would have it the beach was empty. Only a couple fishermen along the seawall and another couple on one end taking photos. The rain earlier in the day had chased away the crowds and the cloudy sky left over from the storm earlier painted the sky with the most gorgeous sunset I have seen. We just took advantage of the moment and snapped some beautiful photos of this stunning couple. I don't think I have ever had such an amazing opportunity at one of Oʻahu's busiest beaches.

Whitney Portraits and Honeymoon in Hawaii

Kahanamoku Beach, Waikīkī

Honeymoon + sunset + white sandy beach = perfect opportunity for romantic photographs.

Rock and Lia were here in Hawaiʻi on their honeymoon and I was over excited to photograph this beautiful couple. The two were so in love and a lot of fun to work with. We made our way down the beach and finished up our photo session at the Ala Wai Boat Harbor just in time for the sunset. I am often hesitant to  walk across the jetty at the harbor during photo sessions because it isn't the easiest to walk over. But when I asked Lia if she was up for the challenge, she immediately looked at me with an affirmative look and said that she was an island-girl - of course. I love couples like them, so easy to work with, and so much fun to spend time with.

Cheng Maternity Portraits on Vacation in Hawaii

I had the opportunity to meet up with this beautiful couple while they were on their baby moon vacation here in Hawaiʻi. We definitely wanted to take advantage of their trip to Hawaiʻi and capture some great photos of the two of them, especially her growing baby bump. The evening was gorgeous and created a beautiful backdrop for amazing photos of this couple.

Katie & Kyle | A Rustic Wedding at a North Shore Ranch

Rustic North Shore Ceremony

It all began before they even knew what was in store. The longing for adventure deep in Katie's heart lead her to Hawaiʻi in 2013, not fully knowing the journey ahead. Left and right she found herself surrounded by incredible people including the tall, golden, curly-haired, Kyle Whitney.

Her Surfing Cowboy

Their love story began on a beach which would provide a great setting for a beautiful wedding. However, growing up in Virginia, it has always been Katie's desire to get married on the country-side, surrounded by free roaming horses. The two would not seemingly fit together, especially in Hawaiʻi, until the couple stumbled across the vast Kawailoa Ranch on the North Shore of Oʻahu. In this beach-side ranch, two of Katie's dreams would flow together into a beautiful rustic wedding where she would say I-do to her surfing cowboy.
