CLICK HERE for a complete look at Kristin and Alan’s wedding day photography from the Kauai Coast Resort and Hukilau Lanai Restaurant in Kapaa. We started the day with Kristin looking stunning in a hotel room full of beautiful bridesmaids getting ready. Family and friends gathered around to help with last minute details and excitement mounted as the final flowers were placed on their bamboo wedding arbor. Kristin and Alan’s ceremony was blessed with warm sunshine and gentle island breezes, just about as picture perfect as beach weddings get! Their Hukilau reception was a special celebration with amazing food and fantastic service (as always), heartfelt speeches, and a lively dance floor. Many mahalos and a big Ho’omaika’i ‘ana to Krisin and Alan!
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!

On this day, most of the island was covered in rain but as their ceremony began, the sun poured through the clouds and lit up the sky. Beside breathtaking views of crashing waves against Poipu’s dramatic rocky coastline, this amazing couple was united in marriage with an intimate ceremony on the sand. We were lucky enough to be their witnesses and capture timeless imagery as Kristy and Gary celebrated their tropical wedding getaway. Congratulations to the newest and happiest couple on Kauai. Aloha and enjoy the photos!
CLICK HERE for a look into the lives of two beautiful people on their special day at Anini Beach. Along Kauai’s dramatic North Shore coastline, Micky was lucky enough to land the best catch of his life. Melissa looked stunning in the blustery weather and despite the windy and rainy conditions, her smile never faded. It didn’t take long for us to recognize the comfort, closeness, and compassion that Melissa and Micky share in their relationship. Their light shines through every photo! It was a such pleasure to work with this awesome couple and their supportive family who came to share in their celebration. Aloha nui loa and a huge CONGRATS to our new friends!
CLICK HERE to check out one hot couple get married on the beach during a beautiful January afternoon on the North Shore of Kauai. We started the day with Gaylin and her gals getting ready at their beautiful vacation rental property in Kilauea. Then we piled in the cars and went up the road to Anini Beach for a perfect sun-kissed ceremony. Unfortunately, Brian was a bit under the weather for their special day, however with a helpful Rx from the family nurses, he held up fantastically throughout the entire event. I also know the thought of marrying such a stunningly beautiful woman must have helped keep him smiling. Gaylin was simply breathtaking and together with Brian they lit up every shot with the warmest embraces. The love these two share radiates through every photo… Aloha to you both and congratulations!

Christina and David were full of excitement and creative energy right after their East Coast wedding. From a photographer’s perspective, there’s nothing like a dramatic jungle with warm reflections of fading light followed by an incredible sunset off the Nepali Coastline. Despite a few bug bites and sandy bottoms, Julia and I had a blast with these two. Aloha and enjoy the photos!
CLICK HERE for a look at Kauai’s most beautiful couple on their special day with family, friends and plenty of aloha. Julia and I started with a ‘getting ready’ portrait session at Elizabeth & Christian’s house and then we walked right outside for an incredible backdrop under the Nounou Mountain ridge. Simply radiant, this new family lit up the camera with a ton of gorgeous smiles and warm embraces. Next, it was off to Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Lihue for their traditional and elegant marriage blessing.
