’57 PORSCHE wedding and a baby


Stephanie & Raymond both had the biggest smiles on their faces as they made it official. Expecting a little one, it was so sweet when he dropped to a knee to kiss her belly. They both were exuding joy as they celebrated their Maui elopement driving off in their 56 Speedster. Congrats to them

Thanks to Diana George for her words during the ceremony and Kristine Snyder for her beautiful harp accompaniment!

Wedding Day Adventures on Maui

Wedding Day Adventures on Maui

What an extraordinary wedding day Hannah and Jonathan had with many adventures! They were married on the south side in the morning and then they were able to experience everything Maui had to offer!  They had perfect blue Makena skies, they swam in crystal emerald waters, drank champagne in an elegant limo, enjoyed the stylish amenities at The Ritz-Carlton,  explored the lush tropical rainforest and had picturesque amazing double rainbows and an unforgettable sunset that left them speechless! Their wedding day adventures started early with a wedding package that included a photographer so I didn’t get to witness their actual nuptials, but as soon as it was over we started our all day photo session!

We started at Makena Cove and we found the beach practically deserted, it was bathed in warm tropical light and they enjoyed their new status as husband and wife and laughed and kissed and frolicked in the morning beauty! They changed from their wedding clothes to beach attire and they continued their beach love as they rolled in the sand and kissed as passionately as a newly married couple can!

After a midday siesta, I met them at the marvelous Ritz Carlton Hotel on Maui’s far west side! I loved the tulip shaped flowers on the giant tree in the entrance of the hotel!  We explored different locations as we continued documenting the day.  Not far from this sensational hotel is this hidden rainforest that lends itself to the most amazing pictures! Once, a long time ago, one of my images taken in this astounding forest went viral with over 25,000 likes! We entered into this fantastic forest and it was overwhelming and by the look on their faces, I could tell they too were blown away! Oh my goodness there are so many incredible spots to choose from and it was not difficult coming up with many superb images! We continued on the journey and we made our way to another dynamite location with tall pine trees that were first brought to the Hawaiian Islands to use as masts for sailing ships and now used as a fabulous backdrop to Hannah & Jonathon’s Love!  Again they were amazed!

We then moved on to Kapalua Beach which was astonishingly deserted and they ran hand in hand down the beach, they walked in the water and took selfies. We then moved to the rocks where we again were impressed by the delightfully colorful double rainbow that formed! I mean seriously does it get any better?  Well actually it does because within minutes the rainbow disappeared and the sunset over the island of Molokai erupted in gorgeous saturated yellows & reds!

Hannah & Jonathon were truly blessed with a gorgeous wedding day anyone could ask for!

Congratulations to these two lovers! 🌴💦🌈😀😎💍👍🏼

Love Conquers all!

Love Conquers all!

CONGRATULATIONS to Tori and Allan tying the knot! Immediately upon meeting them, I sensed their tight bond and love they have for each other.  I heard their story and understood just how strong the depth of their union really is! They both survived a terrible motorcycle accident that wasn’t their fault, a year of recovery strengthened their bond and finally they had the chance to make that commitment to each other with those magical words, “I Do”! They were incredibly loving and thankful that they were able to be on Maui, Hawaii to make this special day happen. Ernest Puaa was phenomenal in finding the perfect words, making the elopement between the two authentic, poignant & incredibly astounding! It was an honor to be a part of their intimate beach wedding on Maui’s West side at Ironwood Beach! Thanks to mother nature for providing the gorgeous background and incredible light!  The light on this day was so stunning, it was filtered by the mist from the oceans waves breaking and the sun that was backlit against the palm trees! This was so exhilarating to witness first hand!  Maui No Ka Oi   Best of Luck to your future Tori & Allan!🌴😎😄💍👏🏽
