Tanya and Timothy were married 20 years ago in Oahu and recently returned to celebrate with their family
Fast forward 20 years and they now have 4 older children + the eldest’s significant other came along for the vacay.
Being based in Kona, Hawaii, beach photos are something I often shoot. For this session I chose to shoot at Anaeho’omalu Bay (A-Bay) in Waikoloa. Tanya and Tim were staying at the Waikola Marriott Beach Resort & Spa, and this beach is fronting it so they were able to walk up the beach to meet me.
I love taking couples and families here because the sunset light is always nice and if we walk about 5 min to the south, around the corner is an awesome “hidden” little beach which is pretty empty. There’s also variety in this location with gardens, kiawe (mesquite) trees and lava rocks that jut out into the ocean.
For outfits, I suggested wearing pinks, greens and blues as it always looks soft and dreamy against an ocean palette. Long dresses like Tanya wore have great movement in the wind. How sweet are they? This was a really fun and really intimate portrait session. I look forward to many more like this!
