This styled shoot should’ve graced my blog a long time ago. Putting styled shoots together is such a headache, but once its done, it is all worth it! I had such a blast working with such incredible vendors. I was inspired by Hawaii’s beautiful ocean colors. The turquoise and deep blue waters; Waimanalo Beach is one of favorite beaches for that exact reason. The sand is incredibly soft and just all together amazing! Am I making you jealous yet?
When searching for models I reached out to my friend Natasha because she just had a baby and all the mamas out there know that all of us need a little glam photo session now and then! Am I right? Shoo I know I’m right haha! She later told me that her and her husband actually never got wedding photos done as they only had a court wedding. I had to pick up my jaw off the floor! ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Right then and there I knew I had to really deliver with these images!
Ian and Travis of Oahu Wedding Altars brought their A-game right from the start. Came an hour earlier, set up and then patiently waited while we took all of the photos. Chantelle from J’adore Florals Designs was so incredible to work out and her flowers were everything I wanted and so much more! Stephanie came in super last minute (the original HMUA had the stomach bug!) saved me and created such a beautiful make up and updo to go with Peaches and Love‘s flower hair piece. And let’s not forget about Over the Moon Bridal‘s cape veil that accentuated Miyuki‘s stunning bridal gown just perfectly, I’m just bummed that it was too windy and we couldn’t use it a ton. Seriously guys, it was just so perfect.
Ahhhh anyway, before I get crazy excited, I’ll let you see it for yourself. Here is my very first Hawaii Elopement Inspiration Shoot at Waimanalo Beach in Hawaii! Man I’m gonna miss this place!
