Honeymoon photoshoot

Honeymoon shoots are a great way to capture the love between two souls. The couples are usually relaxed and the chemistry between them flows smoothly. Last month I was contacted to do a Honeymoon shoot for the newlywed Cryssi and Robert. They got married a few weeks ago in California and were visiting Kauai. It was a beautiful evening in Hanalei that day and the young couple looked stunning in their wedding attire as you will see below. The mountains were clear and the lighting was perfect. The time went by fast as the couple were great at taking directions and I was getting some awesome shots....

Maternity Shoot – Surprise Proposal

Back in February, Danny inquired if I was available to do a maternity photoshoot for his girlfriend. Pretty straight forward right? No. He then told me his secret plan to propose to her during the photoshoot. Two weeks later, I met Danny and his girlfriend Meg at Hanalei bay on a beautiful evening. Meg was all excited about the shoot and was wearing a beautiful teal dress that showed off her baby bump perfectly. The photoshoot turned out to be perfect excuse for Danny to suggest make up and flowers to the unsuspecting Meg. She even had a second dress for the shoot. I took them to my favorite...

Surprise Waterfall Proposal

It was a brilliant plan on paper but a lot of things had to fall in place for it to work perfectly. It was supposed to happen yesterday but the bad weather made us cancel it. So here we were waiting to board the helicopter with a young beautiful couple. It was either happening today or we had to go back to the drawing board and come up with something entirely different. John(name changed) had planned this weeks in advance. Joel and I were undercover freelance journalists contracted by the tour company to take video and photos of the tour for promotion. John’s girlfriend Maya(name changed), was oblivious...

Surprise Proposal ~ Hanalei

A couple of weeks ago, I had the opportunity to shoot yet another amazing proposal out at Hanalei Bay. I was contracted by Veronika at Ali`i Kauai weddings to be the photographer. Veronika was hired by ‘Brian’ to bring his vision to reality. Brian had the brilliant plan to propose to his girlfriend, ‘Jennifer’, standing amidst flowers on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world as the setting sun lit the sky on fire. Add a Hawaiian musician playing his chosen song in the background, and it was sure to make her heart melt. Famous local guitarist Garret was contracted to be the musician....

Vanessa & Montana

Here is a flashback to a spring wedding I shot earlier this year. Vanessa & Montana got married at Tunnels beach, one of my favorite beaches on Kauai. The beach wedding was in danger of being washed out due to the thick cloud cover all over the north shore for most of that day. All the vendors were kept up to date about weather and the back up plan in case it poured. The awesome coordinators at Ali`i Kauai weddings did a great job with this event. As any wedding photographer will tell you, shooting in the rain is the toughest part of this profession. Obviously you don’t want to get your...

Surprise Proposal

On a beautiful evening in Hanalei, I was hiding in the bushes ready to shoot at the right time. Crouching beside me was A.T. with his guitar, Joel with the video camera and Veronika, the co-ordinator of this surprise proposal. About twenty feet away from us was perfect circle of flowers on the beach. It attracted attention of the people passing by it. We just hoped that no one decided to camp in or around it. I got a text from Eric that he and Adina were going to be there soon. Adina thought they were going to watch the sunset and then head to dinner at Baracuda. Soon enough I saw them...

Jenny & Michael

Last week I was privileged to shoot the Kauai wedding for this awesome couple, Jenny and Michael. It was a beautiful day out at Tunnels and weather could not have been any better for photography with slightly overcast skies. Jenny and Michael met at work. Michael was attracted to her but she was married so Michael kept his feelings to himself. As time passed, one day Michael noticed that Jenny wasn't wearing her wedding ring anymore. He mentioned it to a coworker, who happened to be Jenny's friend. Eventually Jenny and  Michael went out for drinks and love followed. Here are a few shots from...

Surprise Proposal

On a beautiful spring evening, Augustine took his girlfriend, Monserrat, for a walk on the pristine Ke'e beach. As they were enjoying their stroll, they stumbled upon a circle of flowers on the beach. Augustine took Monserrat's hand and led her into the circle. Before she could realize what was happening, he looked deeply in her eyes and got down on his knees. The look on her face was priceless. Augustine had her completely surprised. He pulled out the ring from his pocket and asked her to marry him. She said 'YES' in a heartbeat and he slipped the ring on her finger. The next instant they were...
