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?!

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!"
