Oahu Destination Wedding

Maui Wedding Photographer : Sunrise Bridal Couture inspiration at Beautiful Hawaiian beach.

Stunning romantic flowy carol hanna wedding bridal gown oahu donny zavala workshop

Absolutely over the moon to share this drop gorgeous styled shoot curated to perfection by adorable Lucia of @utterlyengaged and an amazing group of artist for the #donnyzavalaworkshop I attended earlier this year. There's no words to describe how insanely beautiful was this sunrise shoot since minute one, Makapuu beach welcomed us with stunning pink skies that left us holding our breath to let the calm breeze of the ocean touch our skins, its was a truly beautiful experience to be surrounded with such amazing photographers and artist from so far away to capture this moment.  I am a true believer that every wedding should be as epic as it can get and everything about this inspiration was just exquisite from the delicate flowing gown of Carol Hannah’s to the lovely craftsmanship of the floral designs of Catalina Neal I'm forever grateful for this day.

From Lucia | CREATIVE DIRECTOR & STYLIST Utterly Engaged :

“Like a wild flower; she spent her days, allowing herself to grow, not many knew of her struggle, but eventually all; knew of her light.” – Nikki Rowe

The entire shoot was concepted from these words. The Mood: raw, overgrowth, abundant, magical, imperfect, discovery. The Color Story: dusty mauve, corals, lilac, fern, charcoal. From there the entire shoot becomes a journey of discovery. With open hands, and surrendering to the creative process, everything falls into place in a raw and organic manner that is more beautiful than I could ever imagine.

Gena + Alex { Lovely tropical Hawaii backyard wedding Ohana style}

There’s something so personal about a backyard wedding. Usually it means that there hasn’t been very many (or any) other weddings there and you have close ties with whoever owns the property. In this case, Gena and Alex got married at a private residence of the parents of the groom. It especially meant a lot to Alex since this was the house he grew up in. To be surrounded by so many memories and then starting his marriage to Gena there was like coming full circle and set the tone for how much they wanted to focus on their ohana and make it a family-oriented wedding. Seeing how uniquely intimate this wedding was made me feel even more honored to fly over from Maui to Oahu to capture this gorgeous couple
