Good morning!! Yesterday's wedding shoot at @dillinghamranch was an absolute dream!!! With some of the most amazing vendors, we didn't let the rain or wind stop us, and the shots were absolutely amazing! Seriously, having a flower shower when you say I do is a must!

Good morning!!! Thank you all so so so much for all of the kind words and support yesterday! My inbox and emails were filled with so much love from you all!! Now, it's time to get back to work!! Ready to make this next year the best year yet!!!
Today is such a great day!!! Today makes 3 years since I started Vanessa Hicks Photography - Hawaii Wedding Photographer!!! I can't believe it's ONLY been 3 years!!!! So much has happened, but I think my biggest accomplishment is still being here! Doubling my income year after year! I read an article that only 20% of small businesses survive the first year, with half of those not making it to 5 years! Luckily for me, I know the best is yet to come! To my first mentor Judith Arcangelo Soule, thank you for helping me 3 years ago! To my friends who helped push me to start this business, you know who you are, I love you always! To the shitty corporate job that let me go for no reason 3 years ago...THANK YOU! To my husband, who invested in my business, who pushed me, who believed in me, who picked me up when I felt like a failure so many times, Josh, I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for you. Bottom line. I love you! I'll be doing a Facebook Live here at 3pm Hawaii Time to say a special thanks!! Make sure you tune in!!!
Aloha Sunday! I hope your day is as peaceful and beautiful as the Ocean is today!

It's Aloha Friday!!! Favorite day of the week!!! Thought I would share with you guys for today's #fridayintroductions 5 things I am enjoying this summer! *Summer hikes! We've been going on so many hikes here in Hawaii, exploring different parts of the island! I have really enjoyed the Crouching Lion Hike, Manoa Falls, and Koko Head! * BBQ'ing! We just bought a new grill and I love it! So many new recipes to try on the grill! Hoping to actually LEARN HOW to grill, but we shall see! *Island hopping!! I have had the amazing opportunities to go to Maui 3 times and the Big Island this summer for work! Now, gearing up to go to Kauai 3 times in the next few weeks! *Summer Bucket List! We've been knocking things off of our summer bucket list I made with the kiddos! This week we went to Hanauma Bay and the Dole Plantation-both tons of fun! Only a few more weeks left till school starts! *My new GoPro!! It's been essential this summer! Between snorkeling, diving, and beach fun, my Hero 5 has not left my side! It's such an amazing and new way to document our lives! Pic from my first time diving last weekend from my GoPro! What's some things that you are enjoying this summer?!? Comment below!!
