Destination Wedding Photography, Kauai, Hawaiian Islands.  What can I say? I loved this wedding. Intimate and small. They and their family were kind and gracious.  When I arrived to the Lihue airport later in the evening, I saw the milky way and the stars prominently displayed in the sky.  Wow. During the day, the Island was magical and tropical. I was waiting for a unicorn to pop out and photo bomb my couple.  The Botanical garden for which they were married is probably the best venue on Kauai to get married, with lush gardens, Kauai’s beach, ponds, acres and acres of rich trees. I almost felt like I was in the jungle at Disneyland with all the sounds, only it was real.  I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to photograph Cori and Michael’s wedding and spend a little time with their gracious family. Congratulations to Michael and Cori and to their families.

I just returned from a destination wedding in Maui, with fun couple, Beau and Marci.  This is where Beau proposed to Marci, so this place holds special meaning to them.  I was honored to fly out to capture their Hawaii wedding with my wife.  And although I have photographed many weddings and heard great stories, after this weekend, I don’t think anyone can top this fun group.  This wedding party knew how to create excitement, and as a result,  made some great memories. The wedding on Sunday was at the Sugarman Estate, south of Wailea and Makena beach, and next door to Steven Tyler’s home.  Some of the bridesmaids saw Steven in Lahaina and invited him to the wedding, but I’m assuming by the fact I have no photos of him means he never came.  For the rest of the week, my wife and I stayed at the Marriot Wailea to celebrate an early 14th anniversary while it was roasting hot in 110 degree weather back home.  Beau and Marci and their families were very kind and hospitable to us, and we’re so thankful to be a part of their wedding.  Thank you and congratulations to you both.  Here are a few images from their Maui wedding!
