Amanda + Christian's Wedding- Plantation Gardens, Kauai

Quite often I shoot weddings for couples I have never met before the wedding day. We get to know each other a little bit over email/video/video chat beforehand but as I park my car and wander through the hotel looking for the hotel room, I wonder, what will they be like? What will their relationship look like? What will shooting them be like? As I found Amanda getting ready at the Sheraton, like most of my couple before, I fell a little bit in love. The universe has a knack for bringing my work together with the most amazing people who I truly admire and grow to love as I document this day for their family history. These two were so easy to be around and photograph. Amanda has effortless charm and beauty and Christian has this soul you just trust. Both filled with such positive energy and admiration for each other.

It's not hard to photograph beauty on Kauai and it's made even easier by the amazing grounds at The Plantation Gardens. Robert Martin Design created so many amazing floral arrangements and I was kind of obsessed that Aloha sign from The Hawaiian Photo Bus. Too much for my house? I want one. Such a beautiful day executed perfectly by Kauai wedding coordinator Marie from Legacy Events Kauai 

Another magical wedding on my favorite island. Big Aloha and love to Amanda and Christian for having me be a part of their day.
