Remi and John were high school sweethearts…fast forward 10 ten years, to the proposal at Cinderella’s Castle in Disney World and then their fairy tale wedding at the Kona Sheraton Resort. From beginning to end, this wedding was full of love and emotion. Remi & John have such an authentic friendship and an evident love for each other. It was beautiful to witness and truly an honor to photograph them.
I cannot finish this post without thanking an incredibly talented lady who assisting as my second photographer. She has such PASSION for her work. Thank you Hannah for helping me to document Remi & John’s day. It wouldn’t have been the same without you!

They choose the beautiful Sheraton Kona Hotel in Keauhou for the venue. Keauhou, which translates to “a new current”, means a very special place that we call home. Perfectly fitting because Remi and Jon are finding their home together.
DIY weddings amaze me – and I love getting to watch it all unfold. Jeannie & Derek’s wedding was a labor of love, in this case it was the groom who took charge of all the decorating on the big day, he was out on the grounds with his power saw, still cutting bamboo posts when I arrived! The Keauhou Beach Resort grounds were absolutely beautiful, from the gorgeous flowers arranged by the groom’s family and friends to the decor and every detail in between. Jeannie & Derek’s wedding was one of a kind, a wedding that really reflected their style as a fun and adventurous couple. The two of them, their bridal party, and their families made this day just so beautiful it was an absolute pleasure to be there.
Jeannie & Derek, thank you so much for trusting me with your wedding. I had so much fun!!

Aaron and Cherith were married at the Keauhou Beach Resort’s oceanfront wedding site, simply a stunning location for an outdoor wedding! Aaron and Cherith are a photographer’s dream couple: laid back, fun, respectful, thoughtful, and so very in love with each other! I photographed the wedding together with my lighting assistant Morgan, using natural light almost exclusively, with Morgan holding a large reflector. The majority of the images were edited using a “retro warm” finish requested by the couple to give the images a romantic vintage feel.
