I loved this wedding and this couple. They honored both of their backgrounds and families with a Chinese Tea ceremony at the Ritz Carlton followed by a traditional Indian wedding at Merrimans and then a more American style reception. It was so fun to shoot with all the outfits and colors and design. The wedding was featured in the national issue of The Knot winter 2017.
Being Awesome — Baldwin Beach at Paia//01/26/2017
I was surprised. I walk on Baldwin Beach all the time (my daughter is now going to high school on that side of the island) but I had never shot there. What surprised me? The colors of the ocean and sky at the beach rendered on my film — so pretty! What else surprised me? Two separate waves, taking out 2 separate cameras (since replaced, thank you insurance). But it no surprise how much I love the film scans and how much the awesomeness of this family shown through. Just one more favorite maui family photography session.
I sort of feel like my clients are my kids, I cannot pick a favorite. But I fall in love with them each time and this time is no different. We had the stars collide — sunrise, sunshine, cool breeze, happy kids, relaxed and in love mom and dad and maybe for this brief moment, these are my favorite family photos ever.
