Jessica & Ronnie - Couple's Session at Minnewaska State Park

These two cutie pies are past wedding clients of mine! I reached out to them with an idea I had and I’m so happy they were game! It’s so important to make sure that you also create for yourself when you are an artist of any kind and I’m so glad I did! They look absolutely fiiiiiiiiiine. Am I right? The water was only slightly freezing but I was only in up to my knees so who am I to judge?

Taylor & Jarrod - Couple's Session at Ho’omaluhia Botanical Garden

Taylor and I found each other on Instagram! When I announced that I was going to Oahu she reached out to book a session and I’m so glad she did! When we got together I found out she is also from New York - such a small world! We started our day at the Botanical Gardens and then headed to Kailua Beach Park for sunset! Happy scrolling!

Meghan & James - Couple's Session at Manoa Falls & Diamond Head Beach

The great part about my job is at each wedding I’m not just getting to know the couple, but I also get to know the bridal party and family! So when I photographed Emily & Fritz’s wedding and found out that Meghan lives in Oahu we OBVIOUSLY had to get together for a photoshoot! We started out in the awesome rainforest as we hiked to Manoa Falls which although was really tall it kind of looked like a drip more than a waterfall. 😂If you know me at all I’m only saying that because I’m bitter about how many stairs it took to get there. However we got to frolic around in the bamboo which was the coolest thing ever. And then Meghan swung on a vine to unleash her inner George of the Jungle which was also both entertaining and awesome. The amount of mosquito bites I got was most definitely not fun but so worth it for these photos of these two hotties. 🔥We finished off the shoot at the beach for sunset where I let James get revenge for having to get his photo taken by soaking Meghan and flinging her around the beach. 😂

Claire & Kyle - Couple's Session at Waimea Valley and Waimea Bay

I got to photograph Claire & Kyle right before attending The Heart Workshop this December. Claire is an adorable and talented photographer based in Canada and when we connected about going to the workshop we knew we had to do a shoot together. These two are steamy as all get up. During their stay in Oahu before the workshop they rented this adorable hippie van and lived the van life for a few days! We started our session on the beach at Waimea Bay and then went across the street to Waimea Valley and took some photos there. Claire fed the chickens even though we told her not to but at least she got some pictures with chickens! We played around in the freaking RAINFOREST (ndb.) and got to create this MAGIC. Happy scrolling! Good luck keeping your jaw off the floor. 😉

New Mexico seems to be the home of hotties nationwide. I'm completely obsessed with all of the models that we had throughout our stay in New Mexico. These two cuties are actually boyfriend and girlfriend....how cute is that??

Meet Randy and Brittany! I'm completely obsessed with how beautiful they are as a couple.

Alex & Ben - Couple's Session at White Sands National Monument

I have had the pleasure of photographing these two several times! I photographed both their engagement and elopement in New York. Ben was transferred to El Paso so when I found out I was heading that way I knew I HAD to message them to see if they were down to come to this magical place. We took some sunset shots and I love that they knew they didn't even have to ask if they could bring their dogs because they know I'm obsessed with animals. Jeff got to hold onto the pups and love them during the shoot and I got to frolic around with one of my favorite couples! Fun fact: The same white dress Alex wore in the second half of the shoot is the same dress she eloped in a few years prior!!
