I'm a wedding, elopement, and engagement photographer specializing in storytelling and true to life photography!
Let me tell you about one of the most amazing engagement sessions I’ve ever had – the kind that makes me love what I do even more! It will go down as one of my favorites of ALL TIME!!! The sunset. The location. This couple. All of it. I recently photographed Gabby and Kyle, a couple that had me laughing non-stop during their Oahu engagement session in Hawaii. The location was beyond breathtaking and the sunset was a sight to behold. We had such a blast that it felt like I was on a date with them instead of taking their photos!
The spot we chose for their photoshoot has become one of my favorite locations in Hawaii. My hubby and I ended our very own elopement day at this same spot to watch the sunset together.
There are some restaurants nearby which make it the perfect place to end the night after taking some epic photos. Gabby and Kyle recommended the restaurant Monkeypod, they claimed they had the best Mai Tais on the island… well that’s a pretty bold statement so I of course had to see what the hype was all about. Let me tell ya, they weren’t kidding!! They also have a very delicious pizza topped with Kalua pork and pineapple. Don’t come at me… I strongly believe pineapple belongs on pizza and you will not change my mind.
But I don’t just take photos – I believe in making your engagement session an unforgettable experience. I mean if you’re gonna get dressed up (or strip down to your bikini like this shoot) then you should make the day or evening a whole day of celebrating you two and your love. Any excuse to celebrate am I right?!
And if you’re feeling adventurous, why not travel to Hawaii for your engagement session? I will GLADLY fly to Oahu (or any destination) and document your love story. I have shot all over the island and have some epic location suggestions that will make your photos unforgettable. Plus, I’ve visited Oahu three times in a year and can give you some tips on the best food spots and must-see attractions. Hawaii is my favorite place on earth, and I would be honored to capture your love story in this magical place.
