This seriously adorable family came together on a hot and sunny afternoon at Secret Beach in Koolina to celebrate the anniversary of love and commitment with a vow renewal. Such a gorgeous family, gorgeously styled, a cute little sign, the cutest kids ever and that flower girl outfit…!

It’s so amazing, so invigorating, when I meet a couple that is so completely in love. When the joy that they feel for and with each other is contagious. This beautiful, soon to be wed couple were exactly that. It was a perfect engagement shoot, with an amazing sunset on a beautiful beach in Hawaii.

Two “strangers” walk up to me on the beach “Excuse me, could you take a picture for us?” “Sure” I say “I’m just out taking photos of the ocean, why don’t I take a couple shots with my camera? I can send them to you.” “Oh, thanks. That would be great” they reply. I take the inevitable stiff, smiling at the camera shot of these two before the real fun begins. Michael turns to Kristyn and brings her in close. He kisses her and they have a moment all their own, while a “stranger” continues to photograph them. Then slowly he drops down to one knee as Kristyn looks at him with confusion and consternation. “Wha…. no…. what are you…” she stutters. He pulls out a ring box from it’s carefully hidden place on his ankle. The words that passed between Michael to Kristyn during this moment are their’s alone to treasure, but I assure you that “marry me” and “yes” were included. The photographs taken on this gorgeous day on an empty white sand beach in Hawaii detail the story that I was blessed to be a part of. Congratulations Michael and Kristyn.

This beautiful couple had gotten married a while back in a simple, no frills Hawaii wedding, and no photography to document the day. So, they decided to arrange a romantic beach photography session to celebrate their love in our lovely Hawaiian islands before moving away to the mainland. We met for a gorgeous sunset session at Sand Island Beach Park. While this is not your typical Hawaii beach paradise, it is a stunning location for sunset beach photos smack dab in the center of downtown Honolulu.
