Honeymoon session

Lisa + Matt {Day After Wedding Hawaii Love Session at Ko Olina Beach, Oahu}

There's something magical that happens when a couple lets you into their world. I feel a bit like a spy who is being shown a very special secret, witnessing the emotion on their faces and the way they share their own love language. This magic happens most frequently when the couple is relaxed without a care in the world except enjoying each other's company, and Day After sessions are filled with these amazing moments.

Of course, don't get me wrong, the wedding day is spectacular in its own extraordinary way, but there is usually so much going on with tons of details and memories to document. We also have to be aware of a timeline and I would always want more alone time with just the couple. 

I met up with Lisa and Matt after their Oahu wedding for more adventuring and I'm so thankful we did! Their beautiful love dazzled. Plus Lisa was able to have another gorgeous look. My hope for Lisa and Matt (and all my couples) is that wherever life's journey takes them, they will be able to look back at their photos of the fresh start of their marriage and be reminded of all the fluttery feelings and the reasons for their everlasting commitment.

Tara + Keith {Epic Day After Wedding Maui Love Session at Nakalele Blowhole}

Engagement and Honeymoon love portrait session in maui Nakalele Blowhole

This next session is very special to me. Tara and Keith are Canadians who are the loveliest, most humble couple on earth. Their spirits are so genuine and it was a privilege to photograph not only their wedding but their next day as newlyweds together.  

Their wedding was at the Four Seasons Maui at Wailea, so Tara and Keith trusted me to show them somewhere completely different! I took them to Nakalele Point. The rugged, boulder-filled landscape makes the ocean look even more beautiful and blue. The cliffs provide an amazing view and allow me to get all kinds of angles. Plus Nakalele Blowhole and the rock with the heart cutout are the cherry on top.

We hiked for 2 hours around the blow hole to get there and soaked up every second of Maui goodness. They loved being somewhere new and were pleasantly surprised because this scenery brought back fond memories of another special time when they got engaged in Iceland. They had no idea such similar magical environment existed here on Maui. Couples who are open to my wild ideas and let me unleash my creativity are my favorite! Make sure to stay tuned for Tara and Keith's wedding day pictures.
