CLICK HERE to check out the love shared between these two Jr. High School sweethearts! It was easy to see the long history of compassion and closeness that Kathryn and Michael have shared for so many years. We started their Engagement Photography at Shipwreck’s and walked the trail looking towards Maha’ulepu Beach, casually stopping at several tropical backdrops along the way. The golden hour light along Kauai’s South Shore never disappoints! Thanks to Kathryn and Michael for being so relaxed and fun to work with. Congrats on your engagement and here’s to the rest of your lives together… Cheers!

CLICK HERE for an inspiring look into the love shared between our good friends, Tiara and Mat. Their engagement session took place bright and early as the soft summer sunlight blanketed Secret Beach, along Kauai’s North Shore. Julia and I were so happy for this chance to capture the radiant beauty, compassionate spirit, and contagious laughter that Tiara and Mat always provide. Set against the natural backdrop at one of my favorite locations, these two looked smokin’ hot together as all the elements fell into place for spectacular imagery. Can’t wait for the wedding!!!

CLICK HERE to see Aletha and Robert’s engagement photography from the Hanalei Pier. Usually, we try to plan photo sessions around sunny afternoon weather, but in this case we definitely took a gamble leaving for the North Shore in a rainstorm. Luckily the rain stopped just it time, gracing us with misty mountains and a dramatic skyline for an incredible backdrop. Aletha and Robert shared several special moments as the sun started to break through the clouds. We were so happy to take pictures at one of our favorite places with two of our great friends. Enjoying dinner together afterwards was such a treat too! We can’t wait for their September wedding at the Kiahuna Plantation on the sunny South Shore of Kauai.

CLICK HERE for a little pre-wedding peek into Brittany and Jeff’s tropical getaway to Kauai. They planned an island-hopping “research trip” to scout for incredible beaches and possible wedding locations. After thorough visits to Oahu, Maui and Kauai, it was the natural beauty of the Garden Island that exceeded all expectations and was the clear winner for their destination wedding. Now the challenge will be practicing patience as they eagerly await that special day. Having known Jeff since high school, it was a special treat to catch up with him and finally meet his beautiful fiancee. Capturing incredible imagery of the two sharing laughs and warm embraces was icing on the cake. Aloha and come back soon!

CLICK HERE to check out Jessica and Greg as they practice for their wedding day with a little engagement photography at the beach. Kauai’s tropical landscape offered multiple backdrops under the dramatic blustery skies as these two worked every camera angle. Near the end of the session, things really got exciting when Jessica and Greg decided to cool off with little sunset swim. Keep spreading that aloha and enjoy the photos!

CLICK HERE for a little peek into an engagement session with our soon-to-be-married friends. We first met Tess and Trent shortly after moving to Kauai and have always enjoyed their warmth, humble attitudes and light hearted sense of humor. We’re so happy to be their wedding photographers! Julia and I are both really looking forward to their rehearsal dinner and of course their special day this weekend. They picked the perfect spot to tie the knot and we can’t wait to photograph them in another one of Kauai’s paradise settings. Check back soon to see the story unfold. Until then, aloha and enjoy the engagement photos.

CLICK HERE to take a gander at this incredible local style wedding in our new hometown of Kapaa on Kauai! The ohana has welcomed us into their lives as well as allowing us to photograph their most memorable moments. The entire event took place at the Kauai Coast Resort with a stunning ocean-view ceremony and a gourmet reception at the Hukilau Lanai restaurant. The event was jam packed with Tahitian and Hula dancing, live musical performances, and a special surprise from the bride and groom. These guys definitely know how to party… you’ve got to check it out!


CLICK HERE to check out our first engagement shoot on Kauai. It was an amazing day on the hidden South Shore beaches as Natalie and Scott took some time off from their busy schedule of wedding planning to enjoy each other and the incredible surroundings. They’ve been such great friends to us during our move and it was a pleasure to capture their passionate love. It’s hard to believe, but Natalie and Scott’s personalities are even more beautiful than they appear in the photographs!
