Ting + Elsa + Twin Falls = Magnificent!
I met up with Ting & Elsa a few days after they were married for some fun honeymoon portraits. I was thrilled when they decided on the North Shore as their location! I don’t often get to photograph on this side of the island..there is so much raw beauty & less crowds on the North shore. We started our afternoon with a short hike to the 1st waterfall at Twin Falls in Haiku. It was such a beautiful day..warm with golden light shining through the trees. After Twin Falls we headed to Hookipa Beach Park for some photos on the cliff..the waves were huge that day so the air was misty with ocean spray..so lovely! We ended our session at Baldwin Beach in Paia. Thank you so much Ting & Elsa for the fun afternoon! You two are so sweet together and it was a pleasure to capture your love on camera.
Errol & Ksenia were visiting Maui on their Honeymoon & met up for some romantic honeymoon portraits at Makena Cove. These two were so great to work with…not only are the a gorgeous couple but Ksenia is a model so she & Errol have had a bit of practice =) The evening was warm & sunny with a calm ocean. We started off with a few portraits at the cove then we walked to the 3rd entrance of big Beach for some different scenery.. I really love Makena! There is such sweet golden light that shines through the trees as the sun gets lower.. I couldn’t have ask for a nicer evening. We walked back to the cove to capture the sunset light and a few fun portraits before the sun set. Thank you Errrol & Ksenia for spending the evening with me. Congratulations again! I hope you have many more fun adventures as husband & wife in the years to come..
I few weeks ago I met Ian & Michelle. The day I met them they were excited, nervous & couldn’t wait for what was to come. When I arrived Michelle was finishing up with hair & makeup and looked amazing! Mira did a wonderful job on both. Before she put on her wedding gown she took a moment to write a card to her husband to be, Ian. She tried not to cry but we could see the emotion in her face as she wrote…it was so sweet.
We delivered the note & gift to Ian a bit later.. he seemed very calm & collected but I am sure he had warm fuzzies inside =) Michelle put on her stunning gown, pink shoes and beautiful jewelry and we headed out for their “First Look ” photos.. Ian calmly waited as Michelle approached from behind & tapped him on the shoulder.. It was such a special moment.
We headed to Makena Cove for some portraits & a sunset ceremony. The wind had calmed and the sun was out. It was a beautiful evening. Ian & Michelle said their I Do’s as a small group of family and friends looked on. A few tears of joy were shed as vows were said. The love was felt by all of us who shared in their day. Deanne from Precious Maui Weddings did a great job coordinating the event.
After the ceremony we stayed for some sunset portraits.. the sky was amazing, the nerves were calmed, husband & wife looked gorgeous in the sunset. All in all a perfect day.
The next morning we met up at Po’olenalena Beach for a super fun Trash the Dress Session. Ian & Michelle rode up on a scooter..it was so cute! The morning was warm, blue & lovely! I am so happy that I could be there to capture these memories for Ian & Michelle. Thanks you two for spending 2 days with us! Congratulations! I wish you many more adventures and tons of laughter as husband and wife. Much thanks to Joanna Tano for helping me and capturing amazing images both days..
