A greatfriend of mine here on Maui’s North Shore, Joe, recommended that I photograph Ryan’s (Secret Beach Proposal) six months ago. Ryan had contacted me and we set the whole thing off without a hitch & captured the moment where he dropped to one knee & she had that “OMG” look on her face. You can view these images from that proposal here on my blog. Check it out! So not long after that proposal, we talked about my photographing the wedding. Wow, how time fly’s and suddenly the wedding of Amy & Ryan was here.
Staged at the boutique Hotel Wailea, where every view is a stunner & a delight to the eyes! Upon arrival to the bride’s room I was greeted by Amy’s mom, Sharon, who was SO HAPPY & EXCITED to watch her beautiful daughter marry. Amy also beaming ear to ear, looked positively breathtaking in a gorgeous gown that was just perfect for her. We found some super places on the property to do some bridal pics & then the time had finally come for the nuptials to begin. Hotel Wailea has one of the coolest Willis’s Jeep you have ever seen! They actually used that cool jeep to drive Amy & her father to the ceremony. Very fun & made for some terrific photos.
Al Terry’s ceremony is always a hoot & he had all the guests laughing out loud. Once they sealed it with a kiss, they were married! Very lovely indeed. The high clouds were perfect for creating the soft light that I just love & of course the laughter & joy the guests all had made for great candid s! Amy’s little niece is probably about 5 years old & just as adorable as can be. Just love the pictures where Amy is holding her niece’s hand & looking at each other. So OMG Cute! Once we had finished up at the ceremony site we rushed off to White Rock Beach for sunset photos. The beach was practically empty & the sunset was muted with clouds but still VERY PRETTY! Loved how Ryan held his new wife’s hand giving her the look! Just beautiful! Walking in the reception, Amy & Ryan were greeted to a gorgeous room filled with clapping & hoots & holler’s. They danced holding each other tight, loving the moment!
Congratulations Amy & Ryan! Enjoy the day & thank you so much for including me, once more, in your most special days of your lives! Tad
