During the first wedding of the 2018 season, we were blessed with really beautiful weather all day long. As the skies turned dark, so did the weather and the rain starting pouring hard. I noticed a nice photo op spot not far from the building where the reception was happening, and asked the bride and groom if they were up for a night portrait, and they obliged. Once the rain moved from pouring to a small drizzle, we stepped outside to capture this beautiful moment, which our bride now calls her "Disney Princess picture"!
Sirine & Romain was a French couple get married in Naxos island on a beautiful ceremony near the beach. They making a special sand ritual by placing into a bottle the sand they had collected from 6 different places, which they have visited and were of great importance to them.
Tunisia, where the bride`s family comes from, Marseille the groom's birth place, Hawai Huahine and Santorini, the couple's most favourite islands and of course Naxos the final place where the sand was collected and placed on top, and the bottle was sealed.
Post-Wedding photo shoot with my wedding client from 2017, initially we wanted to shoot at Leeds Castle like we did for their engagement shoot but this wasn't possible. So with a couple of hours before we were due to meet I decided that we should shoot at Cudmore Grove as as you can see the location is outstanding. This is one of many photographs that I love from this shoot.
This beautiful and adventurous couple Aleka (@alekadancel) + Zach (@zdancel) decided to forego their plans to wed in Mexico for an extremely adventurous elopement in Hawaii! Their 2 day adventure took us out to an amazing and remote location on the island of Kauai, that involved a several hour hike into a gorgeous remote coastal area. We saw blow holes, turtles, frogs, horses, and monk seals along the way. @hiadventureelopements made the trek out and set up this gorgeous elopement and incredible day with hair + makeup by the adventurous @joleeartistry of Oahu, HI.
On Day 2... we started at 3:30 am to venture to the opposite side of the island on Oahu's north shore. In the dark of the early morning we hiked up to this amazing lookout fur sunrise, where the couple laughed and played and celebrated their love and adventurous spirits.
I must say all weddings are beautiful and unique... but there's something about adventuring into the beautiful corners of this planet with my clients, to spots that make you work for it, that get your dress a little dirty, that make you work for these INCREDIBLE views... I can't think of anything more beautiful then starting life's biggest adventure, by celebrating on an EPIC adventure! <3
Jenna (@jennawelleinart) and her husband Miles celebrated their 10 years together with a sweet vow renewal at Maui's beautiful Hale Ho'ike'ike with their sweet son Hendrix who loved every moment of it! As their vow renewal concluded they gave each other a kiss as a flower shower ensued.

This sweet couple took to the sea for the second part of their Oahu engagement session. As fishing is one of their favorite hobbies to enjoy together this was the perfect real life setting for them, taken just off the dock of their home and favorite place to fish. As they paddled around in their dinghy they shared a sweet kiss.
