Jenson Button + Brittany Ward, Hawaii Maternity Sunset Photos

Being a photographer on the Big Island of Hawai’i is never dull. Between the colorful sunsets and the endless amounts of awesome people that travel here to visit Hawai’i …it’s always exciting! I love meeting new people! Brittany and I connected on Instagram when I saw that her and Jenson were visiting the Big Island and we set up a Hawaiian sunset baby moon session for them! We hung out on the ever so beautiful Four Seasons Hualalai beaches and captured some Hawaiian style photos for the two of them before they parted ways and had to leave the next day.

Brittany is such a BABE and makes being pregnant look effortless and let’s be real…this is going to be one cute baby child! Right?!

Waipio Valley Elopement Adventure Session | Hawaii Photographer | Hawaii Elopement

To put this simply….

I was only booked for a one hour elopement with these Lana + Felix, but we went over an hour over. I quite literally lost track of time photographing their love and I’d do it ALL flippin’ over again! They are the sweed-est couple from Swedan. (See what I did there?! I promise I know how to spell sweet, guys!) They have been together over ten years it was about time for the two of them to tie the knot, and, what better place to do that than the infamous Waipi’o Valley?!

The weather was perfect. Their smiles were on point. AND, we even had a little visit from the wild horses!

Are you convinced to elope in Hawaii yet?!

  • Wedding Planner - Simply Eloped

Jordan + Peggy | Kona, Hawaii | Hawaii Photographer Adventurous Couple Session

This session was so special and SO MUCH DANG FUN, danggittt! 

I met Peggy and Jordan YEARS ago in Tennessee through some mutual friends and an event I was a part of. Peggy is one of the most genuine people you'll ever meet. It's rare to meet humans like her in this world! 

These two are a photo and video team of their own ( go check out their work HERE ) based in Knoxville, TN. Sweet, sweet Jordan surprised Peggy with a mini-couple's session while they were here on the island photographing a wedding! HOW FUN! Take notes, gentlemen!

Jordan made a playlist for their session and you better believe that I brought around my modern-day-boom-box and blared that music while we hung out in the lava fields surrounding Kona, Hawaii. This is how I knew this session would be a grand ole' time. Here are a few of the songs that Jordan chose for their session...

  • Uptown Funk - Mark Ronson, ft. Bruno Mars
  • Cowboy take me away - Dixie chicks
  • I love you always forever - Donna Lewis

Enjoy their photos. Or else. KIDDING! 

Kate + John | England Destination Wedding | St. Audries Park Wedding | West Quantoxhead

I met Kate in Hawaii six years ago. It's a super common place to make good friends, am I right?!  We were both doing a school with YWAM (Youth With a Mission) and we've been pals ever since. Kate + John asked me to fly out to England to shoot their wedding and it was prettttty hard to say no to. Honestly. I was so, so honored to be a part of their wedding day. These two love birds were surrounded by people who love them dearly. 

What was your favorite image from your wedding day?

KATE: "My favorite moment was arm in arm with my precious dad walking down the isle. I felt completely over come and the power of the moment took me totally by surprise. I was so excited to see John because we had been apart for a week and when I saw him my being was flooded with peace. We had already committed to each other and even had a marriage certificate so I expected the whole thing to feel ceremonial and almost redundant but God’s presence was so tangible and I still feel totally overwhelmed when I think of that moment. It really was so powerful and to me, pure magic!"

 

***Big thanks to Charlie for photographing the groomsmen getting ready and the groomsmen formal photos! You rock. http://www.charlesstevenphoto.com/#home


KATE: "This is one of my favorites among MANY of favs! I love it because I feel pretty and John is so passionate ( after a couple glasses of ol' vino 😉) and the setting is so familiar - it’s every August in England and to me, it’s beautiful! I miss home! So, to have it captured in my wedding photos means the world to me!"

Kevin + Kaleigh | Surprise Proposal | Blue Hawaii Helicopters | Waikoloa, Hawaii

Kevin contacted me just a few weeks ago and invited me to be in on the surprise proposal. 

I GET SO EXCITED ABOUT PROPOSALS!!!

He had it all planned out and it was adorable. They went on a helicopter tour with Blue Hawaiian Helicopter Tours and JUST after they landed he popped the question. SHE SAID YES, FOLKS! And the timing worked out absolutely perfectly because they were the very last flight to come in from the day, so we were able to take a few photos on the landing pad / run way. 

Congrats to you BOTH, Kevin + Kaleigh!
