Styled Wedding at Loulu Palm Farm Estate

While in Oahu, I did a styled shoot at Loulu Palm Farm Estate. And MAN OH MAN is that venue BEAUTIFUL!!! There is a waterfront view, path right to the sand, a beautiful boho hammock, string lights everywhere, beautiful foliage..I could go on. I got to work with the beautiful and talented Colby of Wanderer Weddings to create the boho shoot of our dreams. Everything about this shoot is made out of recyclable materials since Loulu Palm is an eco friendly venue! Tug at my freaking heart strings, man. As usual vendors are at the bottom!

Kathy & Tyson - Couple's Session at Koko Crater Botanical Gardens

Kathy & Tyson had their couple’s session at the beautiful Koko Crater Botanical Gardens. It’s amazing how although the botanical gardens were located in Oahu so much of it looked like other parts of The United States such as Arizona. I highly recommend visiting this botanical garden if you visit Oahu!

Danielle & Kyle - Styled Elopement in Breckenridge, CO

Danielle & Kyle were our lovely models for a styled shootout in Breckenridge, Colorado. Aka my favorite place in the entire world. Back in March I got together with Wedding Travelers Co. in New Mexico for their styled out and let me tell you these two bad ass bitches that run it are some great people. I love Andrea & Steph so much that I have gone to every one of their events LOL. If you know me..you know I LOVE animals. A little too much some may say….So OBVIOUSLY I was freaking PUMPED when I heard we were going to take photos with alpacas and llamas. Not so pumped when I remembered I am allergic to said alpacas and llamas. My nose was practically trying to jump off my face. But the views were so dang epic that it was well worth it! Have fun browsing!

Danielle & Ryan - Elopement Styled Shoot at Kaena Point

I got to meet these two love birds in Hawaii at The Heart Workshop! When I say it rained….IT POURED during this session. Out of nowhere it just poured and these two got soaked. What did they do? They danced in the rain! This is what you do people! Look how beautiful it looks! I hope you enjoy scrolling!

Vanessa & Brian - Couple's Session at Kailua Beach

Vanessa and Brian had responded to my model call I had posted for Oahu. We did a sunrise session on the beautiful Kailua Beach and I got to shoot alongside my good friend, Sara. Vanessa and Brian brought along their beautiful baby girl and she even popped into a few of the photos. These love birds had a partial rainbow come out to greet them during their session as well! I love getting to meet new couples all around the world and I’m so happy I got to meet these two and that they braved the cold water at 7am for me! I hope you enjoy scrolling as much as I enjoyed shooting! Happy Scrolling!

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!

Monica & Sean - Intimate Wedding at Sapphire Point Overlook

Monica and Sean got married in their favorite state, Colorado. There was a massive storm coming but it held out for the two of them the whole day. When they were saying their vows you could see the rain across the lake! MORE IMPORTANTLY(jk kind of) I SAW MEEEEEESE! When Monica was getting ready one of the bridesmaids casually goes “Is that a moose outside?” I ran outside as quickly as possible bare foot because obviously I had to get a picture of them and HOLY CRAP are they HUUUUGE! They more just looked at me like they were so mad I interrupted their snack on the trees but all I wanted to do was hug them.

Monica and Sean had a beautiful intimate wedding with their closest friends and family and the beautiful views of Breckenridge. If you have never been…I highly recommend it. The views look like a painting. Afterwards they had a nice intimate dinner at Mi Casa…which I also recommend. The night ended with a hotel hang out, live music, dancing, and laughter with their closest friends and family.

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. 😉

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!!

 

Styled Elopement at White Sands National Monument

Alright guys! It's the moment you have all been waiting for!! I know you saw these hotties on my Instagram and Facebook page. And to answer your question....yes these people are real and they really do make people this hot in real life! 

The White Sands National Monument needs to be on everyone's bucket list is it isn't already. It has the most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen in my life and they're 360 degree sunsets. The sand is amazing and feels like moon sand because the sand is actually made of crushed gypsum! The sand was cool to the touch even though it was hot as balls in New Mexico. While we were shooting they were actually testing rovers for Mars because it's the closest to Mars' sand in the entire world. The White Sands has 180 species of animals that only habitate at White Sands. Okay...now that this sounds like a third grader's history report...let's look at some hotties!!

The Styling team ( 3 Sisters El Paso ) did such an amazing job putting all the details together! It looks like a wedding right out of Urban Outfitters or something!

Chelsea is probably one of the most beautiful people I have ever seen and Cody ain't so bad either!

Sooooo like anyone else think they should get married for real?
